In the second, definitely less interesting match in Group C, the teams of Ireland and Croatia will measure their strength. The 18th team in FIFA ranking secured themselves the right to participate in European Championships in Poland and Ukraine after victorious playoffs with the team of Estonia. Croatians had also to play an additional match, taking up the second place in their group just behind Greece, but they defeated the Turkish team and were decidedly better than their rivals. It will be an encounter of two very well matched teams […]
Croatia, the tenth in the FIFA ranking, will participate only for the fourth time at the European Championship and will try to improve their best result which was the quarterfinal achieved twice. Croats took the second place in the qualifying group losing two points to the Greeks, the European Champions of 2004. In the playoffs they did not give any chance to the Turkish team by winning the first game 3-0 and the second ending with a goalless draw. A large impact on the game of the Croats will be […]

Norway v Hungary – Thursday 12th November Hungary have not won in the past nine games against Norway, and won’t find it any easier this time around. A glance at their relative group opponents says it all; Norway finished third behind Italy and Croatia, whilst the Hungarians lost out to Northern Ireland and Romania. Moreover Norway were very close to qualifying automatically, letting their lead slip against Italy in their final match. They’ll feel that they’ve earned a place at the finals already, and will have too much for a […]
