Whats the state of play in Group H? It is a pivotal week Group H as France get set to face Iceland and Turkey. Two wins out of two for Didier Deschamps side, who currently sit next to the group behind Turkey and 3 points ahead of Iceland, will watch them take a massive stride towards eligibility.
Albania, who are six points from Turkey and France, will be hoping they can still sneak to go, however there is not much room for mistake for the side of Edoardo Reja.
Coming up in Group H: October 11 – Iceland vs France, Turkey vs Albania, Andorra vs Moldova; October 14 – France vs Turkey, Iceland vs Andorra
Charlie Nicholas prediction:Iceland are great, but they have been fighting above their weight for a little while, so I am fancying France to walk away with the win here. France have too much strength, and Antoine Griezmann, but not quite shooting for Barcelona nevertheless, will play his role in a France win in this one
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 0-2 (5/1 with Sky Bet)
Team information: celebrity names such as Joao Felix Cristiano Ronaldo, Bernardo Silva and Goncalo Guedes all have been included in the group, and Portugal have no injury difficulties.
Olympiakos centre-back Ruben Semedo was named in the squad for the very first time, although the Nelson Semedo of Barcelona is predicted to start ahead of Manchester Citys Joao Cancelo in right-back.
Luxembourg have a clean bill of health, in a 4-5-1 formation and Dynamo Kiev midfielder Gerson Rodrigues arguably their goal threat together with Maurice Deuville anticipated to lead the lineup.

What is the state of play in Team B? Life is looking quite sour for Ukraine, who seem to make up in a row at the top of Group B. A triumph over Lithuania on Friday would see them through; four more points will be enough.
A win over minnows Luxembourg would provide them some breathing space, however they really do have a match in hand over third-placed Serbia although portugal are assured of a opportunity to retain the trophy they won in France in 2016.
Should they want to continue to keep their dreams alive, while Lithuania must offer a enormous jolt luxembourg shot at a location will be over with defeat to Portugal.

Here is the list:
Team information: since James Maddison pulled from the group meaning he wont feature against Bulgaria or even the Czech Republic England were dealt with an accident blow Thursday. Fabian Delph (hamstring) and Tom Heaton have also retreated through injury, together with Sheffield United goalkeeper Dean Henderson substituting the latter.
Tammy Abraham could earn his first competitive England cap, with previously played in friendlies, although Chelsea team-mate Fikayo Tomori is at the group for the very first time and might make his first England appearance. Tyrone Mings awaits his first cap.
For the Czech Republic, David Pavelka, David Hovorka and Filip Novak are injured, while defensive midfielder Lukas Kalvach could make his introduction.
What is the state of playwith? It is starting to resemble a case of when, not if, for England. Following an entertaining win over closest rivals Kosovo last time out, they already have a four-point cushion within the eligibility areas and a match in hand.
A win over Czech Republic on Friday will secure their route to the finals, and they could guarantee best place too if they can do the double and beat Bulgaria next week or Kosovo fail to take maximum points at home to Montenegro.
The next place is more up for grabs. Should they fail to beat England on October 11 czech Republic are second but may be leapfrogged by Kosovo. Bulgaria and montenegro, both winless using two points each, will require something approaching a miracle to finish inside the top two
Charlie Nicholas prediction:All these are the best 2 from Group A and it is a match Czech Republic might need to chase. Harry Kane is from shape with Tottenhams struggles, while the inclusion of Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham at Chelsea bolsters the squad. Gareth Southgate might not start them and it might be a more seasoned side by Raheem Sterling, Kane and Jadon Sancho up front. Therell be a small edge to it, but Englands centre-backs may be where the problem is different. What can the pairing be? John Stones is hurt and Harry Maguire is not in the ideal form, therefore this could possibly be a worry.
