This time of year always throws up some surprises and of Thursday’s international friendlies, the Faroe Islands to beat Latvia stands out for me.
The pair meet in Marbella in one of the games that perhaps flies under the radar but offers plenty of value when you consider recent history.
Of their two meetings, the Faroes have taken four points, having faced each other in qualifying for the upcoming World Cup.
It may sound odd but the snappily named ‘National Team’ are a quickly improving side and have clearly taken note of Iceland’s approach to making the most out of difficult footballing conditions.
A win for Lars Olsen’s side seems a very generous 9/5, especially considering they won 2-0 in Riga before drawing in the return match back in Torsvollur.
Elsewhere and I fancy Algeria to run riot against Tanzania.
The Desert Warriors got to the last-16 of the 2014 World Cup but despite the talent at their disposal, failed to qualify for Russia.
