Sweden can't catch a break. Last World Cup they had to take on Portugal in the playoffs. Can't see them pulling the upset here, Italy have to be huge favourites.

Northern Ireland vs Switzerland, I'd give the Swiss the edge.

Croatia *should* be too strong for Greece but as we all know, those Greeks can play that annoying style of ball and sneak a fluke goal. I suspect most neutrals will be hoping Croatia pulls it out.

Ireland vs Denmark is probably the most open of the contests. Should be fun. Put me in for Denmark. Carlsberg vs Guinness?

The romantic in me wants to pick Sweden, but the pragmatic in me says Italy at a canter

So Switzerland take a 1-0 lead and Croatia murder Greece 4-1 in the play-off first legs.

wait nobody backing the Irish? That's not a good omen. Then again St. Patrick's Day is far away.

Sweden's goal came via a deflection and they take a 1-0 lead to the return leg on Monday.

Zlatan could be going to the WC...

Don't expect the competitive Azurri to lie down on that return leg in Italy.

The Swiss are through...thanks to a dodgy penalty in the first leg.
