World cup results

It was a mixed day of results for the home nation. An impressive performance by Wales as they came back to beat Scotland 2-1 at the Cardiff City Stadium, with Gareth Bale scoring both of the goals and James Morrison scoring Scotland's goal. England beat San Marino 5-0 at Wembley, however I didn't think that England were very impressive as Montenegro scored 6 goals against San Marino AND England only scored 5. Republic of Ireland suffered a 6-1 defeat at home to the hands of Germany with Andy Keogh scoring their only goal.

These results now mean that Wales move up to 4th and Scotland drop to 5th, England move up to 1st and Ireland drop in 3rd in their respective groups.. It was a tense game for Sweden as they narrowly avoided embarrassment against the Faroe Islands as they came behind to win 2-1 with Fulham's Alex Kacaniklic and PSG's Zlatlan Ibrahamovic scoring. Spain comfortably beat Belarus 4-0 with Pedro scoring his first Spanish hat-trick. And Belgium became the first team to beat Serbia at home in a World cup qualifier in 10 years as they comfortably won 3-0.

Would do you think the best scoreline was? My favorite was the Germany win against Ireland.
