Teams: Kazakhstan Artificial Potato Tacklers
I am curious what Iordanescu is preparing this as:
1) a must-win match (which would make our life easier in the last round...)
2) a must-not-lose match (a tie would complicate our situation, wouldn't be terrible, but would mean we're less likely to lose, which would really make life complicated in the last round, where we'd need at least a 2 goal victory vs Albania, most likely, to qualify)
Personally I think this is the most important match--if we win we'll get both points and a morale boost. And we can win.
Starting line-up... Yeah, I'd keep the same GK and DF. And here comes the tricky bit.
-------------Andone/Alibec (I don't know if I have a preference here--but I'd go with Alibec vs Albania)
We need good finishers... Perhaps I'd even risk with Lucian iso Prepelita from the 1st minute. Torje/Popa about the same level, but I think Popa is more useful vs Albania.
Vs Albania I'd probably do
It's hard to say since I dunno if any of our boys are tired.
