Euro 2012 Qualifying Draw
Ok, maybe it is a bit too early to talk about it, we still have the next World Cup in 2010, but on February 7th the Euro 2012 qualifying will be held.
The pots have been defined and with Israel`s poor campaign in the previous qualifier, we have left Pot 2 (we were the worst of Pot 2 in terms of ranking) and joined Pot 3 (we are now the best in in terms of ranking in Pot 3).
There will be 9 groups in total being 6 of them with six teams and other 3 with five teams each.
Here are the Pots:
Bosnia & Herzegovina
IMO, with all the combinations there isn`t a group in which would say we are completely out.
I would rate like this:
Pot 1: We will need to play our best and a miracle to beat
Pot 2: Possible wins, but we are the underdogs
Pot 4: We are favourites, but certainly tricky games
Pot 5: Clear favourites, but being careful with away games
Pot 6: Clear favourites
