My personal favorite would be

Romania or Portugal
Iceland or Bosnia
Ukraine
Turkey
Armenia
Georgia

The reason I chose this group is so we can settle some scores and mainly because outside of Georgia, we have yet to defeat the others. I would've liked us to play Azerbaijan in a neutral zone but our FA won't have any of it.

Edit: silly me, they're in pot 5 like us.

Won't be surprised if Faroe Islands beats us, they have beaten Greece twice already.

we have close losses against top teams ... plus Greece was a pot 1 team. It's a complete wreck for the Hellas.

Yeah they're quite formidable for minnows. Arguably the best of the bunch. I'm just amazed that they're a pot 4 side. Still, that would be my team of choice if we want the easiest opponent of that lot.

Meh. Albania, while respectable, aren't a top side. Serbia are struggling so badly that a win away for us isn't out of the question. Denmark and Portugal are the only top teams imo where we played ok but ended up losing.

We've got romped by Germany and France so I'd say we're still a long time away from beating top top teams.

Croatia are going to be in pot 1 while Italy at 2nd.

I feel sorry for the teams that will get Italy from pot 2 because you just know they'll qualify.

Either way we still fall really short of getting anything when we play the true powers of football. This past year of playing vs Algeria, Germany, France was an indicator that we're not ready for the big leagues.

Btw, what group would you want for us personally?

The third group sounds good, teams we've never faced before. England would be good both for playing them as well as giving our players a chance to showcase their talents and generate some interest from English clubs.

If i was you guys i would pick N.Ireland or Scotland in third pot. Your game plan can suit more against teams who play long balls and not against team that play short passes and can keep the ball.

Ideal group for you would be ..

Wales
Iceland
N'ireland
Faroe Islands
Armenia
San Marino

Good luck
