Golazo111 5 months ago 49 1737 As it stands, in Europe there are 9 groups and the rule says that the "worst" second placed team is kicked out while the other 8 will play eachother for the group spot. Currently the worst second placed team is Wales. But I'm not sure why is this even a rule and how it got passed because if a group is balanced it will be harder to gain points and obviously Wales is in a balanced group fighting with Ireland for second place while Serbia is most likely taking the first place. Isn't it too much cruel to get the second place and still not have a chance to fight for a spot? The whole "design" of the format wasn't that good IMHO.
