I personally think its a fantastic draw for the Island. Lots of points to be had. How I see it panning out is as follows

Group E

Norway
H: Draw
A: Defeat

Slovenia
H:Win
A:Draw

Switzerland
H:Draw
A:Defeat

Albania
H:Win
A:Win

Iceland
H:Win
A:Draw

If that happened (and I feel it is possible) then thats just 2 defeats and a total of 16 points which in the grand scheme of things is a fantastic total and very competitive for qualification. Obviously these results I feel are the best that Cyprus can achieve....would love to see the above results happen....but who knows!

I believe the max points we can get is 15-16. We can win Iceland in both games but we will not win 4 points with Slovenia.

Switzerland and Norway are no so strong. I think we could beat them at home.
