The Moldova evaluation match following the Iceland match is expected to be a stage where coach Bento can test the ‘Plan B’ envisioned.

For players, this is a great opportunity to get a glimpse of Bento.

From the Lebanon match, the Europeans, the core of the Bentuho, will join, so they have to prove their skills in these two evaluation matches.

Iceland, the first opponent in the evaluation match, is ranked 62nd in the FIFA rankings, lower than us, who are 33rd, but they are a strong team that advanced to the 2018 World Cup in Russia through a fierce European qualifier.
