No...you are NOT seeing things. That's Slovenia at the top. And England and the US are 2 points behind. Granted there's pretty much no hope for Algeria to advance and the American certainly seems to have been robbed of their last goal thanks to some completely shitty work by the referee. But this is frankly a stunner. England is playing embarassingly poorly. They drew against Algeria. Algeria!
Also on tap today - Germany and Serbia. You'd think the outcome would be a given - Germany, right???? Ha ha ha. Foolish mortals. No. Ok then, a draw. Um....try once more. Serbia beat Germany 1-0. This is not only a bit embarassing for the German squad, the Serbians also handed them their first lost in the qualifying rounds since 1986! I'm stunned, but happy.
What a day of upsets!
