European WCQ results

Neither Russia nor Latvia got the victory that would have put them super close to second place in their group, but thanks to Liechtenstein, they both still have a chance. Latvia jumped out to an early lead with a Vitalijs Astafjevs goal in the 6th minute. Andrei Arshavin responded in the 24th to tie it up. From that point forward, it was a match of "just don't screw up" calaber. Russia was the better side, they just could not find that second goal.

Slovakia, looking for their first trip to the finals, could have made it nearly impossible on Russia and Latvia with a win over Liechtenstein, but they were unable to find net. They are still 3 points up on Russia, but Russia does have a game in hand. The drama continues.
