Well England are safely through while Wales had a difficult task in Curacao. Heartbreak for Northern Ireland as they lose at home to Portugal while the Republic Of Ireland just edge through in Yemen.

Armenia stun France while Spain fall to Singapore. In the probable tie of the round the USA knock Lionel Messi’s Argentina while the Cook Islands exact some revenge on their former Oceania neighbours Australia.

The game of the round has to be the 7 goals thriller between Burkina Faso and Switzerland

That means 64 teams will go into the hat for the 3rd Round Draw which will take place tomorrow.
