*Path A = If Iceland, Bulgaria or Hungary win they go into Group F.

Yeah I was at the game. Was in the restricted view area, so their was a mixed fanbase. There were a couple of Polish fans heading out to the toilets standing right behind us as they scored. They actually apologised for celebrating the goal! Really impressed with that sportsmanship!

I actually forgot Poland scored, tbh. Had it as a 0-0, thanks for reminding me Barry.

It mattered to me 😭

In tournaments where some of the third placed teams go through, how does the governing body decided which group winners will play third placed teams and which play second place sides? They never seem to publish this so I’m assuming it’s not some kind of pre-draw.

Good question. I think that is also preordained. Maybe?!

I'm a Northern Ireland fan, so not expecting much beyond the group stages, if we get there

Melbourne, it is worked out already.
If 3rd comes from A, B, C and D then it is:
1B vs 3A, 1C vs3D, 1E vs 3B and 1F vs 3C

Then there are about 15 possibilities, so won't go into all of them.

I thought you were Irish DJ. At least we have it easy, assuming we win our play off games, that we almost certainly won't, we have a pretty clear path to the final! Name's on the cup
