Was a matter of time. Only Bosnia is playing so far.

Heno has made some terrible reads on the ball. No venom to the counters whatsoever.

Will be interesting to see how long we can hang in there and what subs are made to try to secure a point.

Agreed. They actually didn't look half bad. Nothing you could do about the goal.

I wouldn't be so heart broken if we conceded from open play or a big mistake, but to play pretty organized andthen give away a goal like that is just sad.

MUCH better play! Great impact thus far from Briasco Balekian. Good chances for Heno...

Always difficult to play away in the Balkans. Not a bad performance at all, a bit too passive but well organized.

Really liked the Calisir-Haroyan partnership.

Could've been worse. Start Balekian against Finland. Karapetyan was useless.

Well, not our worst game. We didn't create enough with Ghazaryan and Adamyan on the wings. Defense got caught ball watching on a couple occasions, with Hayrapetyan there to bail them out. Hope we build on this vs. the Fins.

I think Kamo had a good game too. he made some good crosses and runs on the right side. Edgar Babayan and Briasco were good coming on. Babayan has pace.

Coach made a mistake of not substituting Artak Grigoryan. He had a very bad game.

I’d say Ghazaryan was more useless, to be honest. Karapetyan had more positive runs but there was never any attacking support.

Gev looked better in the second half. But both he and Adamyan weren't very good today.

If we play a more attacking game then there's a good chance that we can defeat Finland in Yerevan.

Maybe it's the fact I was expecting to see bunker-ball followed by a 2-nil defeat, but the squad was pretty solid out there, for the most part. We did a solid job with the first few passes, but lacked the final pass to put forth consistent threats and gave the ball away too much. Haroyan-Callisir should be our CB duo going forwards, they seem to click well together and held their ground well. Our LB/RB did their job as well. Didn't like some of the corners we just gave away, especially knowing BiH is capable from dead balls.

Was disappointed by Grigoryan mainly, and while Kareptyan didn't seem to make much of an impact, he didn't get much of an opportunity. He did go back to get some touches, which I liked, and wasn't afraid of contact. Loved what I saw from Briasco, hope he gets the nod against the Fins, him and Babayan seemed to have chemistry together, and wouldn't mind seeing Babayan start in place of LeGGend.

Hoping Marcos gets back soon, we sorely miss his technical ability on the pitch as well.


Around the group, Italy beat Finland, 2-0 and the Greeks took care of Liechtenstein by the same tally. Third could be conceivable, just need to take all six against Liechtenstein and get splits against the Greeks and Fins, at the least.

I think a win against Finland is very realistic and I must say I'm very impressed with our keeper. Hope he stays consistent.

Very good summary axper jan. I would like to add how much Kamo has improved in the past couple of years.
