I'm torned. On one hand, this is the only opportunity to qualify and we couldn't have gotten a better draw. Having Argentina, Canada and Holland as the direct opposition is as good as it gets.

 

But on the other hand we are having a shit season, after a shit season, after a shit season. Just can't get optimistic about this. People here still think we are having a better team, then the 3 above and should be beating China, Mexico and Belgium in our sleep like before. It would be much more frustrating to not qualify from this group, then expectingly losing to Brazil, Italy, USA..

Group A - Brazil and Italy, Iran

 

Thanks for taking Iran serious but nah :d we could have a realistic chance in two other groups, specially Group C but no way in this group. and actually I'm not worried about Brazil and Italy. we play good against them here and there and it's OK to lose to these teams.

 

 

I'm more worried about losing to other 4 teams which will be costly in the ranking. I don't even think about direct qualification here, I just think about damage control and not losing too much points.

Maybe i overestimate Iran but i still think that Iran could be dark horse. :)

Those 3 european teams are more than beatable. Qatar and Cuba too. Golden days of Iranian vb are probably behind us but last matches i saw were rather solid.

Same here, unlikely that any of the Dutch team qualify, but not beyond the realm of imagination

Indeed, such a group sounds nice, but the Dutch men's team is not that much, especially if Nimir has a less good day. At last year's World Champs they impressed against Argentina and Iran, before losing in the first knock out round to Ukrain without a chance.

Thanks Vic. Has it been confirmed yet? I hope I will be free from work to go there during the National holidays in October 😁😁
