We're really behind the 8-ball in terms of direct qualification. Only England and Ukraine stumbling unexpectedly can get us back in the race for top spot. Realistically we need 7 points from the two UKR games and the ENG return fixture. Obviously winning both ties against Belarus is a must as well as I'm certain one of the big 3 in this group will drop serious points against Hleb and company somewhere along the way.

Basically, when things are no longer in your own hands you can't afford ANY slip-ups. We're very close to that situation even if it's only 2 games into the campaign.
