Not a bad group at all. Belgium will be tough and away to Russia and Kazakstan will be hard though.

Some expensive trips for the tartan army.
It’s not too bad a draw

How come England always get soft groups ?

They're a pot 1 team. There isn't a pot 1 team in that draw that will struggle to qualify to be fair.

So we beat Belgium home and away. Draw twice with Russia and lose to Kazakstan and Cyprus. Finishing third on GD.

I think the Kazakhs have gone back a little bit judging by the Nations League results.

It's one of the best draws we've had for quite a while and it really should be between us and Russia for 2nd.

The Russians will overstep the mark politically, get themselves banned from all sporting events and we will qualify by default., easy innit.

Nothing to fear from Russia. They were brutal before the World Cup.. you knew they would have a decent tournament because they were the hosts. Beat the rest, 4 points from Russia and throw everything at Belgium to try and scrape a point (as unlikely as that is) & we’re in with a shout. Bad news is the Serbia group looks difficult, was hoping they’d get a group they’d win comfortably so we avoid them in the play offs.

Tough group. If we get Cyrpus in June it could be brutal, can't see us getting a win in Russia and while Belgium might qualify with 100%, how many times have we assumed that but the top seeds have went on to drop points against our rivals (Germany and Ireland being the prime example). Think we might need to fall back onto the Nations League I'm afraid.

Fully expect the tartan army to get their erses booted in Russia. They’re no too keen on men in skirts. We’ve never had a better chance of qualifying for a tournament than this.

Pretty optimistic of finishing top 2 in that group Belgium will run away with it but we will be too strong for Russia and co

Never going to get an easy group but this is probably as good a chance we will have of finishing second

Some good trips for the TA, looking forward to Cyprus and to San Mario Beento
Belgium already and will go again, need to see about the other two though, might be tough to get to

Russia scooshed their nations league group. Beat the Czech Republic 5-1 in the process.

They don't normally travel well though. Have to beat them at Hampden try getting a draw over there. Hope we get that fixture early in the campaign.can't see us getting anything from the Belgians but Russia might do something at home to them.

I think it's a very difficult draw. Nice wee trip to Italy and Cyprus.Quite fancy going to Bruges instead of Brussels this time. Russian and Kazakhstan will be a heck of a journey.

pain in the £rse to book some trips due to multiple locations used. KAlliningrad, Moscow, St Petersburg in Russia. Almaty or Astana in Kazakhstan.

Looking forward to it but certainly be expensive. Looks about £700 for the opening double header.

March tempratures in Astana highs of -3 lows of -13. stadium is covered though
