1.Greece They don't have the same magic as the other teams up there, but they are also really good, and would be a very hard team. But IMO they lost the "magic" after 2004 and hasn't played great football lately. If this continoues, and we play like we have done since 2003 (stabile team and solid playing) I think we would have a fair chance against them, especially at home.
The other teams in this pot are fantastic and plays very beautiful football, I fear them all
But we could take some of them maybe?
2.Turkey Again, a team that isn't even close to be what they was in the last couple of years. I think Turkey is a good team but they didn't qualify to EC2004, loosing to Latvia (cmon, I am sure we could have taken them) and then barely getting into the play-off to this WC2006. Because of this, I think we have a good chance. But a good team. Of those who I don't want to meet, it's Romania/Croatia. We have had problems with Romania in the past and they are really good IMO. Croatia is a neighbour, neighbours in the qualify..ooo
3.Norway. Good team that has finally started to play some good football after EC2004 and the switch too Ĺge Hareide. They have some good players and really isn't in my opinion the same team as the one we met in the EC2004, much better now. I would say BiH and Norway are at the same level, some norwegians and bosnians might disagree. Neverthless , a solid team but we can take them if we do our job good. I don't want to have SiCG or Ukraine in our group.
5. Iceland, we have skills and play to beat them. I'd be sad if our team, that drawd Spain twice wouldn't be able to win agains't them.
6.Cyprus, small nation. The pot speaks for it's self, unless some suprises I don't see this a hard opponent.
7. Luxembourg. Nice country but the football NT....
But I see that many important players will retire soon so as I am not updated on the "talent front", but I hope some new youngsters will start playing and showing, a younger, but still very solid BiH NT. If anybody can post who they think will be good new players for the NT, please do.
