Arif Asadov's expectation from the draw: "I didn't want to humiliate them"

"The teams in each of the four baskets have more or less average strength."

Arif Asadov, head coach of the Azerbaijan national football team, told Idman.biz.

The experienced specialist announced his expectations before the draw in the League of Nations, which will take place today in Paris, the capital of France. He said that there is no weak competitor: "We are in the 2nd basket. But in 3 there are teams like Slovakia and Northern Ireland. These are the teams that speak with their game. There is no choice in this regard. We have met with some opponents, and we have not met with others yet."
Asadov is not against the winner of the Gibraltar-Lithuania match against Cyprus, which can be considered the most desirable: "We met Cyprus, which is in the third basket, in the League of Nations. But if Gibraltar comes here, we haven't had any games with them. I didn't want to insult these teams by mentioning their names."

Note that the draw will start at 21:00 Baku time.
