Latvia vs Faroe Islands
European Qualifiers – 2018 World Cup
Date: Friday, 7th October 2016
Kick-off: 19:45 UK
Venue: Stadion Skonto, Riga.
Latvia’s good form will be put to a small test when they welcome lowly ranked side Faroe Islands at Stadion Skonto on Friday evening.
Latvia continued their good form last time, as they defeated Andorra by a lone goal in game of the qualifiers campaign. Sabala’s 48th minute was enough to hand Latvia their desired win. They will be looking forward to another win to maintain their good ongoing form.
Faroe Islands kicked off the campaign with a goalless draw against Hungary at home, keeping them 3rd in the table. They are behind Switzerland in the 1st position and their host Latvia in the 2nd position. A win in this game will take them above Latvia or to 1st position depending on the outcome of Switzerland’s game.
