And now let's check out the ratings!

22:35 GMT


Match Report: Bolivia 1-1 Argentina

At least the visitors avoided another 6-1 mauling in La Paz, I suppose! Still, it wasn't all rosy for the Conmebol qualification leaders tonight...

22:30 GMT


Match Report: Montenegro 1-1 England

The Three Lions put in a tepid second-half performance to undo their hard work in the first 45 minutes!

22:20 GMT


Match Report: France 0-1 Spain

One of the more entertaining 1-0s you'll ever see, it really was a cracking night in Paris that either side could have won. Pedro was denied a first-half penalty but grabbed a goal in the latter 45 minutes before Paul Pogba got himself sent off amid a flurry of French near-misses in the final 20 minutes!

22:15 GMT


Match Report: Malta 0-2 Italy

A penalty-strewn first-half (well, there were two of them anyway) saw Mario Balotelli score the visitors but Michael Mifsud scuppered his chance to level the playing field, allowing the AC Milan striker to double the lead just before half-time!

22:10 GMT


Match Report: Germany 4-1 Kazakhstan

One Manuel Neuer howler aside, Joachim Low's men were utterly dominant and battered their Asian/sort-of-European hosts into submission!

22:05 GMT


Match Report: Netherlands 3-0 Romania!

Robin van Persie surpassed Johan Cruyff's record for goals in an Oranje shirt with two second-half strikes after Rafael van der Vaart's opener to keep the Dutch's 100 per cent record in World Cup qualification!

22:00 GMT


Right! Time for all the match reaction, reports and ratings! I hope you're strapped in, folks!

21:50 GMT


FULL-TIME: France 0-1 Spain!

21:45 GMT


Croatia have beaten Wales 2-1, Ecuador are drawing 1-1 at home to Paraguay and Bolivia-Argentina remains 1-1 with barely any time left to play!

21:40 GMT


GOAL! Montenegro 1-1 England!

The Three Lions have been poor in the second half and the equaliser is deserved. Can the hosts go on to get a winner, will it finish a draw or could the visitors fight back and grab a late goal?

And yes, that picture is utterly inappropriate, but the juxtaposition amuses me. Easily amused, I know!

21:38 GMT



Paul Pogba's been sent off for France! Two yellow cards in the space of a minute, and you've got to say it's probably deserved. His second booking was definitely a card.

Can France still fightback v Spain?

21:30 GMT


Yohan Cabaye and Blaise Matuidi will both miss the next France match having picked up yellow cards against Spain.

Meanwhile, Croatia have equalised in Wales and the score is 1-1 in that Group A clash!

21:25 GMT


Algeria 3-1 Benin, Poland 4-0 San Marino and Belgium 1-0 Macedonia are three recent match  updates!

It's full-time in Netherlands 3-0 Romania, Scotland 2-0 Serbia, Denmark 1-1 Bulgaria and Ukraine 2-1 Moldova.
