yesterday our NT achieved a good result (1-1) in Slovakia thanks to a goal from our joker Dimitrovski. this is the end of the road for our NT in these qualifications. i hope the next time we'll have a less tough group we haven't been lucky for years with seedings... i know we aren't in the first hat but chance might help us sometimes... just look at France's group
To sum up our NT adventure i'd say we lacked chance and we missed many chances too. this is probably due to a lack of experience, stability in the NT coach function. i don't think it's a lack of talent : turkey, england and slovakia can tell we gave them some hard time and (foreign) medias generally agreed on our nice brand of football. it's rare to see a NT play 4-4-2, 3-5-2 , 3-4-3 or 4-5-1 with the same comfort for instance. we played well in most of our games (except that bloody performance against liechtenstein which could have changed many things if we could have avoid it).
we need a little more time to get some experience and we'll win or at least not lose the games which we dominated in. and maybe we'll be in germany in 2006.
