The Crimson Dragons began the qualifying marketing campaign for the European Championship with a logical victory: 3:0 towards the Faroe Islands, the distinction in degree was beautiful. Commentator Mark Willems was there. “Examine it to the Belgian crew on the provincial degree, it is nothing.” On the similar time, he warns about Estonia, the following opponent. “Not one of the best nation, however with many skilled gamers.”

Belgium had already completed within the Faroe Islands after simply over an hour of play. “Often a match that ends 3-0 lasts an hour and a half,” Mark Willems is aware of. “However in the event you solely get 7 and 9 factors within the 1st and third set, then in fact the whole lot goes very quick. I do not assume I’ve seen a match that ended so shortly.”

There was once a separate event for “small” ones such because the Faroe Islands, Luxembourg, San Marino, … . They performed amongst themselves for a ticket or for a promotion. However this technique has modified.

“I am afraid due to the dangerous instance of soccer, the place all these nations additionally take part within the ‘regular’ qualifiers. However in soccer, the Faroe Islands can nonetheless lie in entrance of the web with eleven and a victory can nonetheless change into troublesome. If not, one of the best crew all the time wins.”

“However the federation is engaged in soccer, with the European Championship now additionally with 24 nations, which I don’t welcome. A match like yesterday would not make sense to anybody and I feel it is economically and environmentally irresponsible.”

Skilled Estonians towards younger dragons

Now such a system, sadly, in accordance with Willems, however one other opponent within the group will definitely not be a straightforward process. “Maybe Estonia shouldn’t be a number one nation like France or Poland. However in the beginning of this summer season within the European Golden League, Belgium misplaced twice 3-1 and 0-3, so there is no such thing as a probability.

Belgium then did it with a younger crew and missed loads of skilled gamers. “However this group is now about the identical, solely Thomas Russo joined it,” Willems emphasizes.

Sturdy gamers like Deru and the Valkiers are out because of harm, others like Stein D’Hulst need to relaxation to start out the competitors once more. “This younger crew definitely has expertise, however now they’re enjoying towards Estonia with loads of skilled gamers. Will probably be laborious work.”

“I additionally perceive that nationwide coach Emanuele Zanini is sad with all these cancellations. He got here right here as a result of he noticed the potential and assumed that there was a combination of skilled males and younger skills. However now there is no such thing as a such combination.”

I perceive that the coach of the nationwide crew, Emanuele Zanini, shouldn’t be pleased with all these cancellations.

I’m not right here? Disaster!

Thus, the circumstances aren’t optimum, however the European Championship is solely needed for Willems. 7 group winners and 5 greatest medalists can go to this European Championship.

“That must be the one purpose this summer season – to get to the European Championships. If the twenty fourth goes to the European Championships and you aren’t there, will probably be a catastrophe! Even with such a younger group.”

The outcomes towards Estonia will decide quite a bit: two heavy defeats towards this nation and a promotion to the highest runners-up are at stake. Furthermore, these coincidences aren’t all on the similar time.

“Subsequently, it could be that different nations know what to do to proceed, as a result of they already know the results of Belgium. They will come to an settlement. This method is incorrect, that is an unhealthy scenario.”

So hope for good outcomes towards Estonia to have the Dragons there subsequent summer season. “Then they’ll begin from scratch and kind an excellent crew with the seniors.”
