It looks as if Portugal will have an easy go at it for qualification for Euro 2012…..of course, thats what we thought abouth WC 2010 qualification. Portugal are in Group H with Denmark, Norway, Cyprus, and Iceland. Our biggest opponent in the group will certainly be Denmark, who we lost once and tied once during WC 2010 qualification. The next hardest will probably end up being Norway. The last time we met Norway was in 2003(in a friendly match), here we beat them 1-0, thanks to a Pauleta goal. I forsee our next opponent, Cyprus, as being tricky. Cyprus narrowly lost to Italy two times during WC 2010 qualification. What Cyprus has is a strong attack, but a leaky defense. Next is Iceland. What can I say. They’re the Malta of this group.
I think (and hope) that Portugal will not take this group lightly, because if we do again, then we might not be making an appearance in Euro 2012.
