Well, that was an interesting day of World Cup qualifying.

Friday's 36 matches were incredible, each filled with its own drama and providing insight into teams to watch out for in Brazil.

By the end of it all, it was North American qualifying that took center stage. As opposed to the other matches that were just an early step in a long process, North America's qualifiers carried some real do-or-die conditions as the teams round up their groups.

After Friday's matches, just one match day is left before the groups are finished, which will take place on Tuesday. After that, the two nations in the top two spots of their group will be headed to the final round of North American qualifying, a six-team group that will determine the 3.5 teams to go to Brazil.
