I remember some of these names from when they qualified in 2004. The play-off against Turkey. And in the first match of the EURO Championships, Latvia countered well and opened the scoring [ball passed wide into space for a runner, which he latched on to in an advanced area, he then crossed the ball into the penalty box leaving nothing for Maris to do but to latch on to it]. Was that even against the Czechs? Verpakovskis was there, Laizans, Rubins, from this squad, IIRC.
