(UPI) -- The World Cup playoffs from Tuesday night have given the roster at next summer's tournament in Brazil near final shape, as only Uruguay has to play Jordan in Montevideo. Uruguay won 5-0 in Amman in the first leg.

Last night in Europe Croatia beat Iceland and Greece topped Romania to qualify for the World Cup.
