The honored coach of Russia Alexander Borodyuk in Yerevan will first lead the national team of Kazakhstan in an official match, next door to Baku Germany, Joachim Leva will fight with Azerbaijan, and Lithuania's team arrived in London for a slaughter. On Sunday, in the cities of Europe, qualifications will be held for the World Cup – 2018 in groups C, E and F.

Group s

Azerbaijan – Germany (Baku, 19.00 Moscow time)
San Marino-Czech Republic (Serravalla, 19.00)
North Ireland – Norway (Belfast, 21.45)

The position of the teams: Germany-12 points, Northern Ireland and Azerbaijan-7 each, Czech Republic-5, Norway-3, San Marino-0.

The existing world champions Germans not only go without points in the qualifying campaign, but also did not miss in four meetings:

Only the Northern Ireland team escaped a major defeat, and in a guest match, losing 0: 2. Opponents from Norway, the Czech Republic and San Marino wards of Joachim Leva outplayed with a large score, and there are now 16 goals scored now.

The Germans and Azerbaijanis twice fell into the qualifying groups twice, and all four meetings remained with the German team. In the selection on the 2010 World Cup, they twice won with a “dry” account (2: 0 on the road and 4: 0 at home), and in the qualification of Euro 2012, the Azerbaijanis were once able to hit the gates of rivals-1: 6 by guest and 1: 3: 3: 3 In their field.

The Germans have small problems with the composition before meeting in Baku

– The injury to the goalkeeper Manuel Neuer will definitely not play the midfielder Julian Weigl and, under a big question, participation in the game of his playing room Mesut Ozil.

But it is expected that Leo uses this in order to give a chance to prove himself to Timo Werner. At the moment, the 21-year-old high-speed forward Leipzig is the youngest football player who has played one hundred matches in the Bundesliga.

“Werner is already very good, but once he will become great,” Leva quotes the words

The official website of the UEFA. “I look forward to getting to know him better.”

According to the German team coach, the Azerbaijan team looks good in this qualifying cycle, speaking much better than before. “Recently, they beat Norway at home, which is a warning for us,” he said.

Azerbaijanis really started the qualifying tournament, but in November there was a defeat of 0: 4 in Belfast from Northern Ireland, which lubricated the impression of the autumn stage of qualification.

The match of the North Irish against the Norwegians will probably be the most fundamental confrontation of the day in the group:

Teams will already know the results of other meetings and realize what they are fighting for the field. But even now it is clear that only a victory can revive the chances of the Norwegian team to get to Russia, and the home fields will most likely be able to reach a clean second place.

In the match of San Marino-the Czech Republic is expected at once two intrigues: when the hosts will miss and whether at least one ball will be able to score. So far, there is only one goal in the qualifying cycle, but there is also a stubborn home match with Azerbaijan, in which the guests were able to take three points, only once hacking the defense of the Sanmarintsev (1: 0).

Group E

Armenia – Kazakhstan (Yerevan, 19.00)
Montenegro – Poland (Podgorica, 21.45)
Romania-Denmark (Clizh-Napoka, 21.45)

The position of the teams: Poland – 10, Montenegro – 7, Denmark – 6, Romania – 5, Armenia – 3, Kazakhstan – 2.

A fight at the Republican Stadium named after Vazgen Sargsyan in Yerevan will not have serious tournament significance, but stands apart for many Russian football lovers. The first official match at the head of the national team of Kazakhstan will be held by Alexander Borodyuk, the only domestic specialist in demand in the European qualifying cycle.

The 54-year-old Borodyuk, who has rich experience in the coaching staff of our team, became the third Russian at the helm of the Kazakhstani squad after Leonid Pakhomov (worked in 2003-2004) and Yuri Krasnozhan (2014–2015).

Its actual debut turned out unsuccessfully. On March 22, in Larnac, our geographical neighbors lost to Cyprus by winning the first half (1: 3).

In the application of Kazakhstan, only one legionnaire is listed for these games: one of the best bombers of the national team, 25-year-old Sergey Hizhnichenko, who suddenly left for the Belarusian Shakhtar from Soligorsk at the beginning of this year. The rest of the performers represent the local championship.

On the contrary, Armenians have 18 legionnaires at once. Moreover, the line of the attack is entirely represented by the “Russians”: Arthur Sarkisov (“Yenisei”), Ruslan Koryan (“SKA-Khabarovsk”) and Edgar Manucharyan (“Ural”) will try to score former associates in the USSR.

Of course, the best player in the post -Soviet space, Henry Mkhitaryan, occupies a special place in this team. Manchester United midfielder the other day for the sixth time in a row (and the seventh in total) received the prize to the best football player of the country in the year.

“I play not for the sake of this title, but for myself and my people, to represent Armenia at a high level both in England and all over the world,” Mkhitaryan said pathetically. “It is very important for me that as many people can learn about Armenia.”

“Of course, Mkhitaryan is the leader of his team, but in any case I always said that teams play on the football field,” explained Borodyuk Prosports.kz. – There have always been individualities, but we believe that only the team can solve big problems. Football is 11 people, plus those players who do not play are also an important factor.In any case, we will try to please our fans and show a decent game. ”

Group f

England – Lithuania (London, 19.00)
Malta-Slovakia (Ta-Kali, 21.45)
Scotland – Slovenia (Glasgow, 21.45)

The position of the teams: England – 10, Slovenia – 8, Slovakia – 6, Lithuania – 5, Scotland – 4, Malta – 0.

Gareta Southeita was very lucky: his full -fledged statement as the head coach of the England national team without the prefix acting It will be held in a match against an absolutely helpless opponent, on which no one will put a broken pence now. Bookmakers and experts of all stripes are trying to predict only how much the 14th team in the FIFA rating “throws” the 107th.

Is it a joke to say that the average coefficient for the victory of the hosts is 1.1, while, putting on guests and waiting for their fantastic success, it will be possible to increase the laid capital by exactly 26 times!

Even Luxembourg on a Saturday game with France quoted more decent.

It is not surprising that in the camp of the Three Lviv did not discuss the opponent at all. And what to talk about there if SKA-Khabarovsk from the Russian FNL is one of the most serious clubs for which Lithuanian collections play. The colors of the Far East are protected by the leading defender Thomas Mikutskis …

Souteite answered questions interesting to the British. So, the mentor admitted that the best scorer in the history of the England national team Wayne Runi (53) and another venerable veteran Theo Walcott, who did not wait for invitations in March, are still in the field of attention of the coaching staff and may return to the team in the future.

In the absence of Runi, Gary Kaychil was appointed captain. However, he will not play with the Lithuanians due to disqualification, and on Sunday on Wembley the British with a bandage on the sleeve will be taken by goalkeeper Joe Hart.

According to Southgate, he got a lot of criticism after Euro 2016, but the goalkeeper managed to show maturity and recovered from what happened.

The owners also have another loss: Chris Colling defender was injured in a control match against the Germans in Germany (0: 1) and was urgently replaced by Ben Gibson.
