EURO 2012 Qualifiers: Top Five Must Watch Match-Ups This Week

1 of 5

    EURO 2012 Qualifiers start showed us a lot of surprises.

     

    A lot of big national teams disappointed us while other smaller national teams did a big suprise.

     

    This my personal top 5 most interesting matches to watch next tuesday.

     

    Also I got few questions for all of you who watches national teams ;)

    1. What European national team do you support?

    2. Who was the biggest surprise so far in EURO 2010 Qualifiers?

    3. Who was the biggest disappointment in EURO 2010 Qualifiers?

Italy Vs Serbia

2 of 5

    Italy had a scoreleess draw against Norther Ireland.

    Serbia loosing to Estonians was probably the biggest surprise this weekend. They scored in 60 min and everything was looking good for Serbs but Estonians had a plan and they scored three goals.

    Serbians will be in serious trouble if they don't get a positive result in Italy.

Slovakia Vs Republic Of Ireland

3 of 5

    Ireland made their life harder after loosing at home against Russia.

    Slovakia made even bigger surprises when they lost to Armenia 3-1.

    For both Ireland and Slovakia this might be the key match for them.

     Macedonia 3 1 1 1 4 3 +1 4
     Andorra 3 0 0 3 1 7 −6 0

Iceland Vs Portugal

4 of 5

    It looks like Portugal is getting back on winning track after destroying Denmark.

    This time they are going on Iceland who lost all matches so far.

    If they want to catch Norway on the top of the group, they need to beat Iceland.

     

     

    Team  Pld W D L GF GA GD Pts
     Norway 3 3 0 0 5 2 +3 9
     Portugal 3 1 1 1 7 6 +1 4
     Denmark 2 1 0 1 2 3 −1 3
     Cyprus 2 0 1 1 5 6 −1 1
     Iceland 2 0 0 2 1 3 −2 0

England vs. Montenegro and Switzerland vs. Wales

5 of 5

    Croatian manager, Zlatko Kranjčar (father of Niko Krančar the Tottenham player) is doing a great job. He won all three matches so far and now he is ready for the biggest test. Can he surprise the.

    Can Montenegro surprise mighty England?

     

    In the other match up we got Switzerland who had a terrible start and might fail to qualify for EURO 2012 in Poland and Ukraine.  If they fail to beat Wales at home they can say goodbye to EURO.

     

     

    Team  Pld W D L GF GA GD Pts
     Montenegro 3 3 0 0 3 0 +3 9
     England 2 2 0 0 7 1 +6 6
     Bulgaria 3 1 0 2 1 5 −4 3
     Wales 2 0 0 2 0 2 −2 0
     Switzerland 2 0 0 2 1 4 −3 0
