FIFA World Cup Qualifiers: 26 March 2013: Live Open Thread

Laurence Griffiths

A live open thread for all of tonight's FIFA World Cup qualifiers, including Spain's crunch fixture with France

After slipping to a disappointing draw against Finland on Friday, Spain desperately need a win tonight when they take on France at the aptly-named Stade de France. Barcelona feature heavily in Vicente Del Bosque's starting line-up as no less than seven Barca regulars have got the nod - including Xavi who is still technically recovering from a thigh injury. Given that Jordi Alba was injured on international duty last week, Cules across the globe will be praying that Xavi doesn't suffer a relapse. There are other matches tonight - and of course others that include Barcelona players; so no matter which match you're watching, this is the place for discussion. Enjoy!
