agree if we can't win this one we might as well give up on wc dream instantly.
head to head isn't the first tie-breaker?we need two goalkeepers
anyway, in World Cup qualifying goal difference I believe is the first tiebreaker, hopefully we see another 6-0, 7-0 but we need to win by at least 3
i believe that hs is right and that the tie breakers are different for euro and wc.head to head isn't the first tie-breaker?
Welcome back Ante :thumbsup:head to head isn't the first tie-breaker?
wait, at the end of qualifiers they will deduct 6 points right? Because the last group only has 5 teams and they need to determine the top 8 runners up. So at the end, these games against Andorra don't really matter, they still have to win them of course but even if they win 20:0 it won't matter much.
not all groups have the same number of teams. so when ranking the 2nd placed teams , which they need to do as only 8 out of 9 2nd placed teams go to play offs, the teams don't have the same number of games played. so you need to equalize the number of games. thats why games against 6th placed teams in groups 1 till 8 which have 6 teams won't be taken into account.Run that by me one more time. I never heard of that.
Nope, head to head is the 4th tie-breaker. FIFA Ranking is the third tie-breaker. That's why these FIFA rankings matter.in UEFA it is (which is dumb in my opinion, at Euros you had teams winning the group after two rounds), not for FIFA. In fact head to head is the third tie-breaker for FIFA
1. Goal difference
2. Goals score
3. Head to head with the team you are tied with
like that lineup but like u said our coaches never like to experiment in friendlies let alone qualifers in which we play a team which we should beat by 5 goals..I'd go with this lineup, but I know for sure Bilic would never use it, it seems he doesn't like experimenting even in friendly matches yet alone qualifiers
Corluka - Krizanac - Knezevic - Pranjic
Srna - Vukojevic - Rakitic - Modric
Petric - Mandzukic
Try to play Klasnic, Ilicevic off the bench. I am very down on Kalinic lately and he doesn't deserve to play for the NT at this point
:thumbsup:. Great lineup!i think thats too offensive. we definively need more support at the back. you saw today our defenders made some big mistakes and it always looked dangerous when sheva got the ball and ran down the pitch.
andorrans come from mountain, they are used to the thinner air so when they come to lower grounds like croatia the extra air gives them extra energy.
therefore something like
corluka - krizanac - vejic - simunic - pranjic
srna - n. kovac - j. leko - dekica
is the way to go
Remember when Herr Otto called up every Croatian player on the planet to play in a couple of friendlies? I wish Mr. "tejkitize" would do the same.like that lineup but like u said our coaches never like to experiment in friendlies let alone qualifers in which we play a team which we should beat by 5 goals..
