We could have got a lot worse. 

Not that Portugal aren’t one of the worst Pot 1 teams but they can be a bit hit and miss in qualifying Ukraine topped a group against them and Serbia in the Euro qualifiers.

Serbia are good but not the worst pot 2 side either they got a result against Portugal in the Euro 2020 qualifiers too so Portugal mightn’t run them over that helps us.

Luxembourg are arguably the softest of the Pot 4 teams.
A soft Pot 5 draw and it sets up very similar to the Euro qualifying group or let’s say the World Cup 2002 group the sort of group I actually think really suits us. 

Look at Group B or Group I in comparison.

That Scotland group looks really interesting

England and Poland renew rivalries, some things never change

Luxembourg are a much improved side in recent years. 0-0 home and away all over that one.

Could be worse could be better. 

Ideally get Azerbaijan away out of the way in March.

Some decent trips there if we're allowed to travel

I would have preferred to be in a six team group

Would have meant two extra fixtures for Portugal, which they could have done without with them also having to play the Euros

Would have been better for us had Serbia been in the Euros
