How would you rate the quality of the qualifying group?
The qualifying group is quite strong. Especially Germany stands out as one of the top teams in Europe within this age bracket. However, we also face a significant challenge against Finland and Ukraine, both of which possess considerable physical strength. We can assure one thing: our team will put forth maximum effort!
What are your team's expectations for the tournament?
Our expectations are somewhat restrained. What matters more to us is successfully executing our game plan and tactical strategies. The team demonstrated promising tactics in the 1-0 victory against Gibraltar during the friendly match. Nonetheless, we must thoroughly prepare in order to compete effectively against these formidable opponents. Our aim is to maintain a solid defense and capitalize on offensive opportunities when available.
How did you get ready for the tournament?
Preparation commenced in March with the developmental tournament held in Lithuania. This was followed by several training sessions with the team. Additionally, we engaged in two friendly matches against Gibraltar. Our focus was on instilling specific priorities that the team should bring to the tournament.
To what extent can the advantage of playing at home boost your team's performance in the qualifiers?
Participating in a tournament on home turf is an immensely unique experience for both players and staff. We anticipate substantial support and we're determined to reciprocate with impressive performances. This tournament holds the potential to be an unparalleled experience for our team.
