World Cup Qualification Results: UEFA Group A

Belgium

Of this group, Belgium are the only football troupe not to be part of a former larger empire or a particular cultural stack. Three countries were once parts of the former Yugoslavia, the other two are British nations. Regardless, they have proven to be the fittest ensemble to survive the qualifications. Current standings place the Belgians atop the charts, earning 25 points from nine matches. On 11 October, after bagging a 2-1 win over Croatia, the Belgians have successfully acquired seeding in the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals. This means that for the first time since 2002, they will play in the football world’s grandest tournament.

________

Croatia

Possessing a strong midfield and a skilled offense force, Croatia have proven themselves to be a major threat to other national clubs. Pinned on a 17-point score to rank second in their group’s table, the side are almost certain that they will advance for the playoffs. Croatians are now just one match short toward the next rounds, and bagging the playoffs spot is extremely probable.

 

________

Serbia and Wales

Ranking third and fourth place respectively, Serbia and Wales have failed to secure their berth in the 2014 World Cup. Their total earned points are no longer enough to catch up with the leaders, and even the runners up. Nevertheless, there is still a generous “next time” to try again.

 

________

Scotland and Macedonia

The table’s bottom two occupants have earned no greater than eight points in their nine-match qualifications journey. Even if the sides are not yet done with all of their matches, qualifying for the finals (or even just in the playoffs) is impossible. The table leaders, Belgium and Croatia, are already miles ahead to be overtaken.
