FIFA World Cup Qualifier: Europe, Group A. Hampden Park, 11/9/12.
Brazil 2014? You’re having a laugh.
Again I only saw the highlights but compared to Macedonia – a team fifty below us in the FIFA rankings – we looked sluggish and lacking in confidence.
They moved the ball about slickly and with purpose, we like headless chickens. In short they appeared to know what they were about and we didn’t.
Two games in and looks like we’ll be lucky to avoid coming bottom of the group; except that Wales seem to be even worse. (Then again that’s the sort of situation where they’re likely to jump up and bite us.)
Oh, and by the way, when did Macedonia lose the FYR tag?
