    Is the okey off just a one off gane nine chum? Not two legs?

    I remember doing a comparison of international opponents Rooney and Kane had scored against just after the recent Euros and tbh I don’t remember there being that much of a difference in quality of opposition.

    The recent stat showing that Kane is England’s leading scorer in non-friendlies is a bit of a red-herring in that Kane barely plays any friendlies as FIFA have almost removed them from the schedule with the Nations League in the last 3-4 years. Therefore Kane gets to play more competitive internationals than any of his predecessors did.

    Either way, you can only score against and beat who is put in front of you and Kane’s numbers don’t lie.

    Sean, yes just a one off game.

    Here’s how it all works courtesy of the Standard. All as clear as mud.😊

    How do the play-offs work?
    The play-offs will take place between March 24 and March 29 2022.

    Ten runners-up from the initial qualification groups will be joined by the two best group winners from the UEFA Nations League of 2020/21 who have not already qualified.

    Those 12 teams will be drawn into three different paths containing a one-legged semi-final and a final, with the three winners of the latter game qualifying.

    Of the ten runners-up from the qualification groups, six teams will be seeded (those who amassed the highest number of points) with those who joined from the Nations League joining as unseeded.

    By earning a seeding, teams are afforded a home semi-final.

    Not saying for one minute I understood puppy’s copypasted comment, but at least they all seem to be of the “Win or go home” variaty, which is a little bit more interesting for the neutral at least.

    Totally fed up with these games.
    KDB comes back with Covid. Out for Everton and PSG.
    Foden comes back with an injury playing against pointless rubbish opposition.
    Every blooming time players come back to be unavailable or with injuries.
    Total crap

    Looks like you’re going to have to utilise some of that great squad of yours Adlab. Still be an incredibly strong City team v Everton.

    And Grealish.
    Yes we have a good squad but why do England have to play nonsense games.
    Three top players missing maybe four. It’s just total,utter bollocks.

    “Yes we have a good squad but why do England have to play nonsense games.”

    Couldn’t disagree with that Adlab but the responsibility lies with FIFA.
