Asia stretches all the way from West Russia to Australia, hmm?

Iran vs Iraq will be tasty.

I don't have allegiances to any of the countries, so I'll just hope for an interesting underdog winner.

We were kind of over pumping American Samoa every World Cup qualifiers only to draw Uraguary in the playoff every time. 

So we pulled up stumps and said "oi, we're close enough to Asia, let us in ya pansies" (I could be slightly paraphrasing) 

But hosting 2015 was excellent, Being a neutral at alot of the games in Brisbane was really fun. 

Hopefully we can go back to back but not confident without a bunch of guys from the WC squad (Jedi, Mooy, Cahill, ect.)

there's at least one clash in each group between countries that can't stand each other.

Saudi Arabia v Qatar is coming at a time of pretty high tensions. In fact, I'm pretty sure Qataris are actually banned from entering the UAE.

Very sad for Shoya Nakajima. He already missed last year's World Cup due to Japan's management changes, and now is going to miss this due to injury. Such a great talent.

We are so complacent it's shocking.

Lucky to make it out of the group at this rate, Full credit to Jordan they took the opportunity with both hands (Why I sound like a post match interview I'll never know)

No UK service is showing it but it is available on the net.

Bit strange because this is the kind of thing the Beeb would show.

2-2 now! This is a corker. Proper goalmouth scramble.

3-2 to Iraq! Last minute of regular time, a left footed freekick from about 25 yards.

Back to you in the studio, Liam.

India vs UAE at the moment, UAE 1-0 up. I think India's defence is part time because so far they have been shocking. No idea what the fullbacks are up to.

Didn't make it easy for ourselves but we're through, Now to await the loser of the Japan/Uzbek game.

Round of 16 is set. 

From here it's hard to look past Iran/Japan and South Korea/Australia to be the Semis but going off the group stage it could all but up in the air still. 

Happy to see us get the Uzbeks rather than Japan but of course now I get to live in fear that we'll bottle it.

      I think the biggest shock here is that it wasn't the News of the World and their 'fake Shiek' breaking this story. Fucking corrupt arseholes, they had better be out of a job before the vote takes place.
