World Cup Qualifiers - How's Your Team Doing?

I am going to make a World Cup Qualifiers post on Fanfare so we can talk about how our teams are doing during qualification. I tried to make it but an error occured, so am just waiting for that to be sorted; in the meantime, if anyone has any input into how they feel it should be structured, chime in. Also, we are allowed to discuss the qualifiers here until the post goes up.
