Kazakhstan vs Scotland (3-0)
The appetency for international soccer has considerably been waining in the European nation for quite a few years currently, with their last qualification for a significant tournament being the French 1998 World Cup.
Several managers with spectacular CVs have tried and did not bring glory back to the European nation, and currently, Alex McLeish faces the task. The appointment of ‘Big Eck’ wasn’t especially welcome by the plenty, and he has struggled to vary those opinions since. When ten matches are accountable, the European nation has won four of these games.
Crucially 3 of those came within the UEFA Nations League, seeing them get promoted from League C to B and guaranteeing them a play-off place for the ECU Championships. thus whether or not they crash out of cluster I, they still have an opportunity to qualify.
The prize is just too beautiful to be content over tho’ and with a somewhat favorable set of opponents before them, they must be targeting ordinal spot and automatic qualification.
They need positively been spectacular going forward in recent games with eleven goals scored in their last five games. However, they need to do this by sacrificing a lot of their defensive resolution as they have unbroken simply three clean sheets beneath McLeish, with their four goals conceded against 92nd placed Israel (3-2, 1-2) being a selected disappointment in their Nations League campaign.
Kazak presently sit 117th within the FIFA World Rankings. However, there’s some quality around the country as Michal Bílek prepares for his first competitive match as national team manager.
