Portugal are notorious slow starters in qualifying. Serbia actually drew 1-1 away with them in the Euro 2020 qualifying. Unfortunately I do fancy them to get a result on Saturday.

The Serbs might have a decent chance of finishing ahead of Portugal who unconvincingly beat Azerbaijan tonight. I think it'll be a draw on Saturday which puts another nail in our coffin. 


How can you call the group after 1 round????

Because one of our two most crucial fixtures against our direct rivals fell within the first round of fixtures. 

We needed 4 points minimum of Serbia to have any hope of second place. We lost last night which means we'll probably have another two losses vs Portugal. We're not getting anywhere near a playoff spot with 3 losses in this group.  

Best we can hope for is to keep within touching distance of the Serbs whilst relying on an unlikely set of results to put us in second place. 


That's how you fight loneliness,
You laugh at every joke,
Drag your blanket blindly,
Fill your heart with smoke,

they played almost a full B team

Hopefully Serbia and Portugal is a draw.

Ideally draw
Portugal win

A Serbia win would be bad for us IMO.

The only result that would be beneficial to us  would involve them both being thrown out of the competition.

If they were both thrown out do you think we would get a play off?

Serbia make 5 changes to the team that plays Portugal.

Keeper and defense remains the same. 

The whole midfield is different. Lazovic, milinkovic, gudelj and Kostic coming in.

Tadic and vlahovic remain up front with mitrovic starting as the 3rd forward replacing Djuricic.

I'll be honest and say it looks like Serbia played a B team against us. Changing 5 of the midfield and forward 7.

It’s a squad game would you ever f**k off with this B team sh*te talk!! 

They have another qualifier in three days time, they will rotate more for that game too.

I'm actually quoting what the Serbian guy on here was saying. He said it was their B team when he realised the line up.

Portugal 2-0 up now. 2 from Jota.
Kenny has only one win in charge of Ireland after 13 matches which came against lowly Andorra.
