Stange expectations from a Nation.

Recommended Posts

I have just resigned from The New England Revolution to take over the Northern Ireland job.

They were already way out of the qualifying run in for the most current World Cup. Last two games of 2022 are against Peru (away) and Colombia (Home)

Northern Ireland are currently 70th in the World Rankings

Peru are 54th

Colombia are 40th

I lose a close game 1-2 to Peru. A NI player states in the press that "we were expected to be beaten quite easily, by a lot of goals, but losing 2-1 is almost as bad as we were so close".

Okay, I understand that, makes sense.

I lose 4-3 to Colombia. My Assistant Manager tells me to blast the team after the game, in the team talk as we should be beating teams like this. Really? They're 30 positions higher in the World Rankings!

NI FA are unhappy with the loss to Colombia too. Does this sound strange to anyone else?
