World Cup Qualification : UEFA Group G Preview

The world Cup Qualification has been going on for some days now and Today will be featuring Countries in group D, G, I.

Countries in group G include

Albania
FYR Macedonia
Israel
Italy
Spain
Liechtenstein

This teams will be going against one another competing for world Cup position. The fixtures for to day in the following group are

Albania vs  FYR Macedonia

Israel vs Italy

Spain vs Liechtenstein

Though all teams in this group have equal chances of qualification,  I see two teams in this group qualifying (Spain and Italy), judging from past records and present potentials.

The Spanish side has had a good past few years surpassed expectations, winning most of their European titles and showing dominance but since the 2014 world Cup their dominance seem to have slept as they have lost a series of games, the Spaniards have lost friendlies to Germany and the Netherlands, as well as a Euro 2016 qualifying game with Slovakia. Owing to the retirement of their important players, David Villa (Spain’s all-time leading scorer) and Xavi Hernandez or Xabi Alonso (both among the top five most capped players in the team’s history) retired from international football following the 2014 World Cup.

The Italians who also belong to this group have more chance of qualification than the other four as they have the better resourceful players on their side, and though they haven't had a good world Cup feet, losing out in the group stage each time and not placing much of a treat on the Spanish competitors they stand a good chance of qualifying.

The first game will end with either a draw or a one Nil win to either side, the second will go in favour of the visitors and the last will go in favour of Spain with over two goals.
