Lose and Croatia will seal their passage to next summers tournament, setting up a direct shootout between Hungary Slovakia and Wales for that runners-up spot with two games to play.
Charlie Nicholas forecast:This is another difficult one. I would not be hopeful of Aaron Ramsey coming back in, however Wales have it so for this reason, you would have to fancy them. Croatia have gone backwards after this World Cups glory. They have awakened a mark with their World Cup exhibiting along with the reputation they obtained, but there is some thing about Wales that informs me theyre moving in the ideal direction with Ryan Giggs, and I am expecting them to acquire this

Charlie Nicholas prediction:It is the one game I am convinced on! Steve Clarke owes no favours. There was a lot of people who didnt wish to play Scotland and said they were hurt - a select few wished to play and only turned up - . Steven Fletcher has been a slave for Scotland I believe despite not being selected, he is their best number nine currently. That should change for the San Marino game.
Not a lot of people will turn up at Hampden, but let Clarke try something and get a win under his belt. Ryan Christie and Callum McGregor are decent so I would play with them equally, and with Fletcher, Billy Gilmour and Lawrence Shankland set to come , Scotland will win smoothly and get the development they want prior to the play-offs.

Belgium qualified for Euro 2020 thanks for their own 9-0 thrashing of San Marino last time out, and it seems to be only a matter of time until Russia combine them at the finals.
A stage in Cyprus would be enough for Russia to reach a fifth tournament but a triumph for the hosts could breath life in their outside prospect of beating the Russians to place in the group.
