Teams: M. Tel-Aviv, Israel NT
We have 4 points from Georgia, 3 from Latvia, and 3 from Malta so far. We have to get all 6 points from Latvia and Malta. With that said, the 2 biggest matches are in September. If we play Greece in Bloomfield, I believe we will win. They were lucky to beat MALTA :frustrat:, so we better take care of them at home. As for the game in Zagreb, we have enough talented players to collect 3 points there, but it will be difficult. Even though they lost to Georgia, they still tied in France today. It'll be interesting to see how they respond to the Georgians in June.
Getting 12 points from our last 4 games, which will be hard but not impossible, would put us in EURO 2012 without a doubt. Regardless, we need at least 10 points to keep us in the race and would most likely push us back into Pot 2.
We have what it takes to qualify, the players just need to break that mental barrier. We are better than Malta, Latvia, Georgia, and even Greece, but we have to play like it too. Sometimes, the players play like they're scared of the ball and the opponent when they shouldn't be and that just drives me crazy! If we control the ball, keep possession, eliminate stupid mistakes(by NT standards), and improve our passing and vision, we will get far.
