So the task is cut out, stop Cristiano at all cost before he wreaks havoc. Gareth McAuley, Alex Bruce, Shane Ferguson and Chris Brunt will miss this fixture as will goalkeeper Lee Camp, which would mean Roy Carroll will be the goalkeeper again.

Match Preview

Scotland’s defeat to Wales means that the travel to Belgium has to be a successive one. Nothing less than a win would be good for Scotland. And with a opposition of the caliber of Belgium, the chances seem really dim. This is the golden generation of Belgium and they are not to be taken lightly. Scotland manager Craig Levein has come under criticism for the performance but the man himself is confident of a positive result on Tuesday. But it require a lot more than confident to break down the defence which consists of stalwarts like Vincent Kompany, Thomas Vermaelen & Jan Vertonghen.

Match Preview

Romania is one side in the group D which the Netherlands cannot take lightly as they have won all of their last 3 qualifiers, the last one being a surprise win against Turkey. The Dutch did win 3-0 against Andorra but everyone would have expected a lot more goals than that. Louis Van Gaal is still looking for his perfect starting eleven and Van Persie will probably start instead of  Klaas-Jan Huntelaar in this fixture. Arjen Robben has still not recovered from his hamstring problem and Eljero Elia and Jordy Clasie have been brought into the squad.

Venue: Stadion Miejski, Wroclaw Municipal Stadium, Poland
Kick Off: 13.10

Match Preview

Japan should be quite upbeat about their chances against Brazil after beating France in Paris, a late Shinji Kagawa goal meant Les Bleus were handed a cold defeat. But Brazil will be a different test altogether, a test which not many teams would probably like to avoid. But it is a friendly, which would probably reduce the fear factor. Brazil are most likely to start with almost the same side which demolished Iraq 6-0 last week. Which would mean that Real Madrid midfielder Kaka gets to start again but Marcelo is facing 3 months out due to his metatarsal and that gives Castan the chance to start at left back.

Match Preview

Italy and Denmark face off against each other in this crucial Group B fixture. Italians are now at the top after beating Armenia 1-3 whereas Denmark are second last in the table. Denmark could only manage a 1-1 draw against Bulgaria with Nicklas Bendtner scoring a late goal. There are rumors that Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli might start this match for Italy replacing Giovinco in the starting eleven. Denmark haven’t started that brightly but importantly have not lost a match yet in the qualifiers. The Danes are solid at the back too with captain Daniel Agger & Simon Kjaer marshaling the defence.

Germany have started the qualifiers brilliantly with three wins on the trot but theyr will face the toughest opponents in there group in Sweden. Germany thrashed Republic of Ireland 1-6. Sweden also did beat Faroe Islands but it wasn’t a comfortable victory and that’s a worrying sign. Joachim Loew will have his captain Philipp Lahm back for this game but midfielder Sami Khedira misses out due to injury. Mario Gotze or Toni Kroos will replace Khedira in the starting lineup. Toni Kroos scored two very special goals in the match against Ireland.

England enjoyed super possession and defeated San Marino 5-0, which was expected. But on Tuesday the three lions will be facing a much tougher opponent in Poland. Liverpool duo Steven Gerrard and Glen Johnson are back for their fixture and will go on the starting lineup automatically. Chelsea duo Frank Lampard and Ryan Bertrand are still not available due to injuries. Gay Cahill should keep his place in the defence, Lescott might replace Jagielka to partner Cahill.

England will need to watch out for Borussia Dortmund strike Robert Lewandowski as he possesses the main threat in the Polish team.

Special Feature: Lineup Formation Chart

The biggest match in the ongoing qualifiers for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil beckons us all. France travel to Spain this Tuesday night after their shocking lose to Japan in Paris. In team news, Santi Cazorla’s impressive display against Belarus will probably not stop manager Vicente Del Bosque to choose Andres Iniesta instead of the Arsenal man. Busquets will be at the heart of the defence with Sergio Ramos as the Barcelona duo of Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique are still injured.

France too has a lot of players sitting out for different reasons. Samir Nasri has completed his 3 match ban but isn’t likely to be picked. Hatem Ben Arfa & M’Villa are having issues which nobody can comprehend really.
