Norway Gains 3 points in World Cup Qualifying Match vs Egypt

Norway went into egypt Wednesday night and will be coming home with the first win of the TSL World Cup Qualifying Stage.

It was a slow match truth be told and the first shot didn't come until the 16th minute when Adama Valentin Diomande broke through the Egyptian back line. He delivered a perfect far-post cross to right winger Pål André Helland, who headed it into an open net, and giving Norway a 1-0 lead. The remainder of the first half was rather boring until Norwegian Captain Markus Henriksen weakly attempted a finesse shot on goal, but it was far too easy for Egyptian Keeper Essam El-Hadary. In the 45th minute, just seconds before half, their star winger Mohamed Salah blasted one with his left foot that went slightly wide-right, sending teams into the tunnel at 1-0 in favor of the Norwegians.

Norway's back line remained stout in the second half, not even allowing a single Egyptian shot in the final 45 minutes. Alexander Tettey had the lone chance during a pedestrian second half but failed to reach the target after a cross was headed to him about 10 yards in front of goal.

It's a big win for Norway, who may be fighting for second in this group as Ivory Coast is the overwhelming favorite. Still, a 2nd place finish in this group is good enough to advance, so Norway is glad to take one step towards qualification. Norway will travel to Ivory Coast on Match Day 2 while Egypt will travel to Cameroon.

England's opening group A fixture saw them face off with France at Wembley. Raheem Sterling opened the scoring on 12 minutes after a Jordan Henderson corner could only be cleared as far as the edge of the box where the Manchester City man was waiting for it and then sent a right footed shot low and in the corner of Hugo Lloris' goal. Four minutes later Lloris was in action again when he pulled off an impressive double save to deny England there second goal. Things quietened down for the remainder of the first half until, on the stroke of half time, a nice move by England led to Dele Alli having an effort from 20 yards which went just past the left hand post and that called time on a dominant opening half by England which saw them out-shoot their opponents 7-0 but it was still only a 1 goal lead they took the locker room.
The second half was a much more even affair with not much happening for either side, France's only shot of the game came when Dmitri Payet had a free kick about 30 yards out but he could only put it straight to Joe Hart who made a simple save. And then in injury time France had their most threatening attack as Kevin Gameiro dribbled down the right side and as he got to the by-line nutmegged Danny Rose but Rose recovered well to not allow a cross and his tackled rolled through to Hart and the Final whistle blew to give England the 1-0 win and 3 points to start this World Cup Qualification.

:trophy: Gervinho (9.0)

The Ivory Coast kicked off their World Cup qualifying campaign with a 1-0 victory against Norway. The team was in high spirits following their World Cup win last cycle and were eager to get back onto the pitch in a meaningful game. Gervinho led the team from the left side as he evaded defenders all through out the night and set his team up for some good looks at goal. Gervinho set Seydou Doumbia up for the only goal of the game with a cheeky touch pass over a sliding defender, allowing Doumbia to run onto the bouncing ball and half-volley it past the keeper and into the net. The Ivory Coast could've had more in this game but Norway made some clutch tackles in the final third and Jarstein made some key saves to keep his team in it. The defense was able to hold firm and allowed their keeper to only see one shot on target all game. The Ivory Coast will look to build on their performance in their upcoming fixtures and qualify for their 3rd straight World Cup under Seals. Great game TheeEverbro

Colombia Comes Out Hungry, Notches First Win Of Qualification
After failing to take any points in their opening match at Ecuador, Colombia came out with a vengeance against Chile. Just 4 minutes into the match, the home side had their fans celebrating when a cross into the box found Juan Cuadrado for the easy headed goal. Cuadrado nearly had himself a brace in the 23rd minute, but his shot following his run into the box was stopped by Claudio Bravo. Colombia kept the pedal to the metal, and finally broke through for a second goal in the 80th minute. Eduardo Vargas was credited with the own goal, but it was Cristian Zapata's header from a corner kick that deflected off of Vargas and into the net. Pablo Armero made it 3-0 in the 90th minute, and that sealed the Chileans' fate. "Following our opening loss, you could tell these guys were ready to just pound whoever stood in their way," said Coach Bronc. "That opening goal was great, but you could tell they wanted more." Pablo Armero earned Man of the Match honors with his goal and an assist, and also did an excellent job in holding down the right side of Chile's attack. "Pablo put in an exceptional 90 minute shift. He surely put his stamp on the left-back position today." Colombia now sits with 3 points following its first round of qualifiers, and will see Chile again in the next window along with Argentina.

Denmark started their World Cup qualifying campaign with a 1-0 win over Italy in what was mostly a defensive match. Both sides put together some attacking runs but the defenses stiffened in the final third. Martin Braithwaite broke the scoreless tie in the 63rd after receiving a backheel pass from Daniel Wass and firing a shot past the keeper. From there, the Denmark defense did the rest, preserving three points for the home side.

Big Start For The Big Swede

Zlatan Ibrahimovic tallied a hattrick in the first game of the World Cup Qualifying process in Sweden's 3-0 win over Australia. The Swedish giant decided to come out of retirement to play under CMac as he tries to accomplish something he has not yet in his career, winning a World Cup. Sweden will look to take one step closer to qualifying as they take on group favorites Russia on Monday.

After a scoreless first half, Zlatan struck with an easy header after a beautiful cross from Jimmy Durmaz in the 60th minute. The two combined again 14 minutes later to make it 2-0. In the 88th minute, Zlatan slipped behind the Australian defense and was using his frame to shield a defender as he looked to be in on a goal. The Australian defender slid in from behind earning a red card and the ref pointed to the spot. Zlatan calmly slotted that home to complete his hat trick and the 3-0 win.

Chile get first win in hard fought defensive game against rivals, Argentina!
Chile got their first win of World Cup qualification off of a nice goal from Arturo Vidal. Early on both teams were trying to get a feel for each other as Argentina were playing their first win. Manager FeverPitch entered the half very frustrated as Argentina finished with not even one shot attempted. Messi and co could not find a way to break through the tough Chilean defense. It must have been on great half time talk as Chile came out of the half with a fire up their rear as they found the back of the net less than 5 minutes into the half. Eduardo Vargas released Vidal on a breakaway against the Argentine keeper which Vidal coolly slotted through his legs. Chile nearly doubled their lead minutes later as Vargas and Sanchez had a neat 2v1 but Sanchez was too cute with the ball and didn't even get a shot off. Chile was very happy with their defensive performance after allowing 3 goals to Colombia in Matchweek 1. Argentina eventually got a shot off but the back 4 of Chile and the entire team frustrated them the entire day.
