Prediction time. No need to rehearse what’s at stake tonight. Republic of Ireland fans will be hoping the Italians and Bulgarians play out a draw, but it’s Northern Ireland and the Scots who have it all to play for tonight. My prediction: 1-0 with Paterson the hero for Northern Ireland, setting up a tense encounter with the Czechs in Prague with first and second- and third- still up for grabs; 2-1 to the Dutch. No time for Scottish dreamers tonight, I’m afraid. Oh, and the English to batter the Croats 3-0.
