Lars Olsen won’t have to make any major alterations to his team that won at home to Andorra last month.
It’s been a marvelous campaign for the Faroe Islands so far, and they have gotten to this point due to a lot of teamwork. No one man has been responsible for this run of form, as is evidenced by the fact that no player has more than a goal or an assist. But 39 year old midfielder Frooi Benjaminsen is still an inspiration for them. He has six goals in 92 appearances for them over the years, and will look for his first in this campaign.
Faroe Islands have a win, three losses, and a draw in their last five matches:
1-0 home win vs Andorra
5-1 loss at Portugal
0-2 home loss vs Switzerland
0-0 draw at Andorra
2-0 loss at Switzerland
Aleksandrs Starkovs will be without injured defender Oskars Klava and midfielder Artus Zjuzins.
Unlike their opponents, Latvia have relied upon one man to carry their threat. That hasn’t gotten them to a good place in the group, but it does mean that there are decent numerous being laid on the table by Valerjis Sabala. The striker has three goals in the group so far, and has increased his total to ten goals in 37 caps for his nation as a result. He’s the main threat, but it’s an obvious one- which makes it easier to combat.
Latvia have lost each of their last five matches:
lost 0-3 at home vs Switzerland
3-1 loss at Hungary
1-2 home loss vs Estonia (Friendly)
0-3 home loss vs Portugal
5-0 loss at Georgia (Friendly)
