Czech Republic and Finland picked up wins as Holland drew in Macedonia.
Holland's progress in Group One was checked as they were held to a 2-2 draw in Macedonia.
Marco van Basten's side were looking to build on an impressive opening victory over Czech Republic but they were twice pegged back by the hosts.
The opening goal arrived on 43 minutes when PSV Eindhoven defender Wilfred Bouma was on hand to put the Oranje in front.
But Macedonia were level before the break as Goran Pandev netted on the stroke of half time.
Feyenoord striker Dirk Kuyt restored Holland's advantage on 66 minutes and this time Macedonia required four minutes to even the tie up.
Aco Stojkov conjured up the equaliser on this occasion, with Holland likely to rue two points dropped in Skopje.
Czech Republic ended Romania's 100 percent record in Group One of the 2006 World Cup qualifiers.
Jan Koller's 36th minute penalty was enough to separate the two sides in Prague after a hard-fought tussle.
Romania had headed in to the match with three wins under their belt but the group is now wide open after Czech Republic's first success.
Shefki Kuqi netted a double as Finland cruised to a 3-1 victory over Armenia in Tampere.
The Ipswich Town forward scored in each half as the Finns recorded their third success in four qualifying matches.
Kuqi had the hosts ahead as early as the eighth minute and Finland were rarely in danger of throwing away the points.
Exciting youngster Alexei Eremenko Jr doubled the advantage on 28 minutes before Armenia were brought back in to the contest four minutes later by Armen Shangeldyan's goal.
But with Armenia pressing for an equaliser, Kuqi settled the nerves by scoring his second of the game in the 88th minute.
