Fabulous achievement for Slovenia. No more 'lucky Guus'! I bet he wishes he'd stayed at Chelsea.

FIFA did Slovenia a favour by seeding the play-offs. Russia was the one they wanted, given the political history, and it cast them in role of underdog perfectly. The crowd in Maribor were magnificent and apart from one late save, it was all Slovenia last night.

Very fast on the break, no-one will expect anything from them and yet they will be so hard to beat.

If you count the two games against Russia Slovenia conceded six goals in 12 qualifying matches. No-one can really argue on that basis they don't thoroughly deserve their place.

Congrats to them!

Rightfully qualified? The big guns have no right to qualify at all unless they play well and beat the teams they were drawn against, and but for FIFA's meddling with the seeding and France's completely undeserved win against Ireland, we would have lost a big team. FIFA doesn't care about football and they've just shown again its the financial success of the tournament that matters, not the sport.

Portugal and France although theyve gone through are has beens and with France have a totally inept coach, I will laugh my socks off if the french get knocked out at the group stages

Hard luck Ireland but glad England are there, and i hope we get to put the likes of team ronaldo in their place

who is this guy called ThierryHenryGAWALEGEND, calling everyone else an idiot? With a name like that, forever disgraced by last night's cheating "hand of frog" in Paris, he really should be asking himself who is the real idiot.

ThierryHenryGAWALEGEND is clearly a WUM. Rather a pathetic one at that too.

Looks like "gawalegend" is just experimenting pressing different keys on Norrn Irrron's first ever computer.

Go you, you "plant"!!
