Group E: Top 2
EURO QUALIFICATIONS 2020 GROUP E
Looking at the team in this group it is definitely one of the most equable. Croatia, Wales, Slovakia, Hungary and Azerbaijan will fight to qualify to EURO 2020 through this group.
Croatia is biggest favourite here without a doubt. They are current World vice-champions. They got in the team the best player in the world Luka Modric and many more football stars. They showed some impressive games at the World Cup but were defeated by France in the final in Moscow. In the League of Nations they participated in League A, group 4, but finished on the last 3rd place in group with England and Spain and were relegated to League B. Despite that everything but qualifying to the EURO 2020 will be great surprise. Croatia showed that they can compete with the best football teams in the world and now everyone expect only the best from them.
Wales has some interesting squad with some young players, their biggest star Gareth Bale and Ryan Giggs as manager. They didn’t participated on the World Cup. In the League of Nations they played in League B group 4 with Denmark and Ireland and finished on the 2nd place.
Slovakia has some experienced players but we can say that they disappointed in the national team. They didn’t play on the World Cup and also played very bad in the League of Nations League B, group 1 with Ukraine and Czech Republic. They finished 3rd and were relegated to League C. With the games they showed in the League of Nations and previous qualifications for World Cup it will be very difficult but not impossible for this team to qualify for EURO 2020.
Hungary has great football history and lately we can see that the football there is on the up again. They had bad qualifications for World cup but since then many players retired from national team and many young were introduced in the team. In the League of Nations they played in the League C group 2 and finished on the 2nd place. They played strong at home and win all three games but their away games seems to be the problem. However if they continue to work and fight in this qualifications as they were in League of Nations maybe they can search for their place on EURO 2020.
Azerbaijan is weakest team in this group and along side these team it seems that this team don’t have any chances to qualify for EURO. They didn’t have any big success in international football. In the League of Nations they were playing in League D, group 3 and finished on the 2nd place in the group with Kosovo, Faroe Iceland and Malta.
However the fight between four team in this group will be very difficult and tough and of course Azerbaijan is there to prove that they also know how to play football.
