The first legs of 6 World Cup qualifiers contested by 12 hopeful nations have been played this week, and it is pretty much certain that 2 of these teams will be going to Brazil and two of these teams will be staying at home. Mexico thrashed New Zealand 5-1 in a fine display whilst Jordan were inevitably destroyed 5-0 at home by Uruguay. The only real surprise of these qualifiers came in France’s qualifier against Ukraine where the Yellow Blues came out victorious with a 2-0 win. Despite some wonderful footballing displays there is still a lot to play for in the 2nd legs in many of these ties. A few teams can’t start celebrating just yet….
