    And Portugal have farrrrrr better finishers than Serbia have. Like, some of the best forwards in the world. Whilst we probably all were concerned about Mitrovic, Tadic and Vlahovic. My point is that we could lose valiantly 1-0 as easily as we could lose valiantly 3-0.

    Everything hinges on beating Luxembourg for me. Even if we got a draw against Portugal, we still need to beat Luxembourg for Kenny to demonstrate that there is a plan there which is not just reliant on our defenders being better than the rest of our team. I mean, they are, but the signs from Qatar and Azerbaijan that we can be (or are!) a functioning unit in attack against teams below our level need to be solidified.

    i am against Kenny and his continuity far from the EUROPA league of Nations but if the team gets victories vs portugal and lux away. Then I would accept it, his main purpose is to qualify for tourneys not developing kids that is the under 23 and younger teams .

    Dont get too optimistic we have made the results it was supposed to be, at the moment he underachieved . He should have challenged port and serbia for 1st or 2 nd spot he was a disgrace on that quest. Moral victories my granny !!!
