I know its very early to start this thread but this 0-0 draw with Portugal has got me excited
Let me start of by saying that this will be our 5th attempt to qualify for a WC and our 10th at a major tournament with 0% success so far of course alm:
To make matters worse we are in the group of death :moan: The opponents being Belgium, Croatia, Serbia, Scotland and Wales. Quality opposition all round and it will be a success if we dont finish last imo but football is a funny game and you never know what may happen.
Our Full Fixture List:
Croatia - Macedonia (7 Sep, 2012)
Scotland - Macedonia (11 Sep, 2012)
Macedonia - Croatia (12 Oct, 2012)
Macedonia - Serbia (16 Oct, 2012)
Macedonia - Belgium (22 Mar, 2013)
Belgium - Macedonia (26 Mar, 2013)
Macedonia - Wales (6 Sep, 2013)
Macedonia - Scotland (10 Sep, 2013)
Wales - Macedonia (11 Oct, 2013)
Serbia - Macedonia (15 Oct, 2013)
Of course the pick of the lot will be against Croatia and Serbia, especially at home. If Toshack is still in the job then the games vs Wales will be interesting too and there is a bit of history with Scotland after the 2010 qualifiers.
My pick is for the Belgians to finally fulfil their potential and top the group with either Croatia or Serbia in second. What i would like to see from us though is a lot of youngsters to get a go and for us to build ultimately for 2016 but also to be a tough side to beat.
