    Next International Opponent

    After Round 15 there is an International break.

    We need an opponent. We will head down the Euro route.

    Who should it be?

    Remember, CW are still unbeaten in International football. Are we looking for an easy introduction into European football or a real test?

    San Marino ranked 199
    Luxembourg ranked 157
    Estonia ranked 119
    Austria ranked 102
    Iceland ranked 86
    Wales ranked 52

    Can't go wrong with the middle ground, so I selected Estonia, although Austria wouldn't be bad either.

    Reckon Estonia would be a realistic opponent, Austria are more liekly to choose a whipping against the big boys over us, whereas Estonia would see it as a winnable fixture they can play.

    Wales. Quite keen on (a chance at) matching up against Craig Bellamy.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Austria are better than their rankings suggest (but still pretty awful). Ideally, Estonia. Iceland 2nd choice.
