It's former USSR. Pretty much all those countries are still counted as European by FIFA.
Hmm. The only good thing about that group is the fact that we get to make lots of Borat jokes.
I'm leaning towards following Latvia on the account of having been to a home game of theirs and a defence so bad I've never seen anything like. I mean how many centrebacks head the ball to each other with a striker not to far away?
Australia to get knocked out after playing too matches with all A-League sides at home or 2nd string European sides away. Even with Aloisi, Thompson, Moore, Tiatto, Milligan, Burns etc I reckon China and Iraq at full strength will beat an all A-League side. Away from home in Iraq and Qatar you need full strength sides. When our players legs are gone after 60 minutes, a touch of class is what will win matches.
Talk is that they are going to play pretty much all A-League side at home and 2nd string European sides away in the first group phase. Then bring the big boys back for the 2nd group phase. If thats not asking to get knocked out in the first round, then I don't know what is.
Hopefully they go the current Olyroos approach and play everyone possible and rotate the main players if required. They are going to go no where if they play three different sides, as they have bee talking about doing.
