Match of the Day - - Big Game Preview -

HERE'S THE DRILL – if North­ern Ire­land beat Ger­many, then Azer­bai­jan do the same three days later, and then The Green Army de­feat Nor­way, they'll qual­ify au­to­mat­i­cally ahead of the Ger­mans. Er, good luck! ONE TO WATCH Me­sut Ozil is fit and has the skills to un­lock The Green Army's stub­born de­fence! SCOT­LAND can do Eng­land a favour by get­ting a re­sult here – it will con­firm Eng­land’s place in Rus­sia if they can beat Slove­nia at Wem­b­ley. A Scot­tish win will make them favourites to qual­ify for the play-offs! ONE TO WATCH Who can for­get Leigh Grif­fiths' two stun­ning free-kicks against Eng­land? He’s on flames! IT LOOKS LIKE a straight shootout for the fi­nal play-off place here! Wales have the form (they haven’t lost a group game) and they have Gareth Bale (he’s quite good). But never rule out the spirit of the Ir­ish boys! ONE TO WATCH After a slow start to the sea­son Gareth Bale is fir­ing on all cylin­ders again!
