Our prediction for this Euro 2024 match:
Armenia will look to put an end to their three-game losing run in all competitions when they take on Wales in the Euro 2024 qualifier. The Armenians are three points behind top two in Group D, meaning that Saturday’s clash is of big importance for the home side. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but defender Varazdat Hayoran serves a one-game ban due to the accumulation of yellow cards.
The Dragons, on the other hand, did well to shock Croatia in their last group game, but they have yet to secure their spot at the European Championship finals. Even though experienced midfielder Aaron Ramsey remains in the recovery room, we are tempted to put our money on Wales, who continue relying on Fulham midfielder Harry Wilson. The good news for the visiting team is that Tottenham rising star Brennan Johnson is back to the squad.
Highlighted Team (Armenia):
Armenia footballers played for Soviet Union national football team until 1991, when the country declared independence. The Football Federation of Armenia was founded the following year and they quickly established relations with both FIFA (1992) and UEFA (1993).
Despite the fact that Manchester United ace Henrikh Mkhitaryan plays for the Armenia national football team, the Havakakan have yet to qualify for the finals of a major tournament. Mkhitaryan is undisputedly the team’s most famous footballer, but we should mention former Ajax striker Edgar Manucharyan as well, who is in the twighlight of his career. Armenia played their first international game against Moldova in October, 1992 and it has to be noted that they played out a goalless draw with the former Soviet republic.
The Armenians have slim chances of qualifying for the FIFA World cup 2018 finals, but they did well to beat Montenegro in the process. Armenia footballers wear red shirts and red shorts when playing at home ground (Vazgen Sargsyan Republican Stadium), while the colour of their away kits is white.
