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.
