TBH I couldn't care less about those Russian clubs from the East: Narva, Sillamäe, Kohtla-Järve etc...they have Russians/no citizenship players mostly so they provide no players for the NT and their impact is mostly negative: they embarrass Estonian football with their match-fixing scandals (which they especially like to do in UEFA competitions)
HJK drew Macedonian club Rabotnicki. This is what their coach had to say about the draw:
Igor Angelovski, Rabotnicki coach
The thorough analysis of HJK Helsinki is yet to come, but our initial assessment is that they are strong outfit. However, we are capable of surprising them and qualifying for the next round. I predict two closely contested matches.
Alan Gasperoni, La Fiorita president
We certainly weren't particularly lucky with this draw. Levadia are a very good side so we will have another difficult task. However we have built a squad able to compete. Our objective is to play two good games; we are San Marino's champions and want to represent our country in the best possible way.
Tonight is the big match between Levadia and La Fiorita. It'll be a good way to pass the time until the Belgium/USA match kicks off, anyway. Hopefully Levadia manages to avoid embarrassment. :thumbsup:
