    0-1 TUN in the 24th minute.

    It seems like a tie would be the best outcome for Ukraine. Spain win would probably be 2nd best since it allows Ukraine to advance in a tie against Tunisia (assuming Spain will beat Saudi...even if Saudi beats Spain, Ukraine would probably advance on goal differential).

    Tunisia's playing very defensive. And so far, they've pulled it off!

    I think Ukraine would prefer to see Tunesia loose big (at this point clearly unlikely). That would put them in a very solid position to qualify for the second round.

    The amount by which Tunisia lost didn't really matter as far as Tunisia is concerned since Ukraine can't tie them. What matters is the amount by which Spain won because it's possible for Ukraine to tie them for 1st place.

    In any case, now Spain has qualified, Ukraine will qualify with a win or tie (unless Saudi manages to pull off a win by 4+ points), and Tunisia or Saudi will qualify if they win and stuff happens.

    The Tunisia goalkeeper was excellent the results did not show his class. Spain has a team of young studs that could take them all the way. They have showed so far that they can win under diverse circumstances. Eight goals in three games is not bad. We will see what happens next with Saudi Arabia.

    Well the second goal was because of some very poor goalkeeping, so I wouldnt say he was all that...

    Well, we've only seen seven in two so far, but who's keeping track.
