France topped group E despite a scoreless drew against Ecuador. It didn’t help that France played an almost unrecognisable squad from the first two games, or that Antonia Valencia got himself sent off, or that Karim Benzema just didn’t turn up for the game, but France still managed to top the group.
Switzerland also qualified with a good 3-0 victory against Honduras with all three goals coming from Shaqiri.
In group F Argentina and Nigeria both qualified after a 3-2 victory for the Argentine’s. Messi scored twice but both times Nigeria equalised before they were unable to answer the third Argentinan goal.
Bosnia-Hercegovina beat Iran 3 – 1 to get their first points on the table and leave poor Iran last in group despite their best efforts.
