Oh ok

I strongly believe that they would have let us run this had our federation applied I heard from players that the club in Yerevan is a total mess.

Re: Europe/Africa Zone Group II 2010

Georgia in the better group, with Armenia, Finland and Norway.

But that's bad in FC. They will play either Greece or Luxembourg for the spot in EA1 probably
