Our group:

France
Ukraine
Finland
Bosnia & Herzegovina
Kazakhstan

I predict 4th place for us. Between 5-7 pts. seems realistic. France is easily going to be 1st. Ukraine and BIH fight for the 2nd place, but I think Ukraine will edge through in the end.

There's a lot of pressure on England not humiliating ourselves on Thursday.

With all due respect to San Marino.

San Marino's all time official record:

Games played-Wins-Draws-Losses-Goals For-Goals Against-Goal difference-Win%

174 1-6-167 24-730 −706 0.57


If England loses to San Marino, they might as well forfeit.

Turkey - Netherlands

well i can't see us winning that one


ok Cald, Finland - Bosnia & Herzegovina

well i must say i have been following Bosnian team recent years, and tbh they aren't bad, since they made their debut at 2014 world cup (also worthwhile mentioning they won their group in qualifying stage too)

could be a close call this one, since Finland made euro cup for this year whereas Bosnia has been unlucky so many times in play offs for euro cup 3 times in a row


Norway have it pretty easy at Gibraltar i think


same as Croatia also easy on paper, in balkan clash against Slovenia


Portugal i never really can say anything about that team, i mean they heavily rely on Ronaldo which is not very good to rely on one specific player but against Azeri's they should be fine (also fun fact many brazilians turned azeri in that team)

A draw or a Netherlands win in he Turkey v Netherlands match.

If Finland wants to get to Qatar, they need points from these two matches against Bosnia and Ukraine.
At least one of them is almost a must win. Two losses would be bad.
France is going to run this group and very possible with a maximum points count of 24. Maybe BIH and/or Ukraine can squeeze a draw out of them, but other than that, no chance.

I don't get why San Marino doesn't just poach some Italian players who are decent players but can't quite make the Italian side.

Just look at Jamaica with how many English born players they're taking.
