Azeri coach glad to have 7 rivals in qualifying round of European football championship
Shahin Diniyev, the coach of the Azerbaijani national football, was satisfied with the results of the lots cast for the qualification round of Europe-2008 championship.
Group A includes string teams, while the key task is to score maximal points during the qualifying marathon.
Even prior to a trip to Montero I said that I want to have many teams in our group. From this aspect I am glad that we have 7 rivals. As to concrete rivals I think only after the completion of all matches we would say whether we are happy with lots, the coach underlined.
Azerbaijan is in a subgroup with Portugal, Poland, Serbia, Belgium, Armenia and Kazakhstan.
