The mindset between the senior team and the youth teams are usually very different. The senior teams usually have a more realistic approach when playing teams that are better than them, while the youth teams are looking to win every game regardless of who they play.
Moldova is definitely one of the weaker sides in Europe, but they are seeded in Pot 4 surprisingly
. That should say something... But to me, it just says that they're the weakest team from Pot 4:smileani:
p . They will be our Macedonia for this campaign, but a little weaker. If anything, they
should be worrying about us having so many shots on target that their net will fly out of the stadium!!! :dielaugh::dielaugh::dielaugh:
If we get all 18 points from Moldova, Latvia, Luxembourg and beat Greece and Switzerland at home, then we'll be heading to South Africa. The Swiss team looks surprisingly strong on paper. In their latest call-up for the England game, they had only 5 players from the domestic league on the roster. As for Greece, their campaign will depend on whether or not their manager stays in charge. If Otto leaves, then Greece has no chance of qualifying. That's how much of an impact he has on the team.
I'm hoping for the occasional screw-up from either Switzerland or Greece just like England against Macedonia at home. :hopeful:
