PostSubject: U20's World Cup aspirations   Sat Feb 25, 2012 3:21 am

So with the U20's World Cup just a 3 weeks away I thought I would ask everyone what they thought our aspirations should be for the tournament?

Should we aim for a top 16 spot and see where that takes us?

Should we target a Trophy and do our best to come home with some silverware?

or Should we just go along for the ride and enjoy the occasion?

So I now open up the floor for your thoughts and comments.

Aim for the top 16 spot, Who cares about a trophie when its the worst one when we could have been the second best team out there.

(I know were not the 2nd best team but I was just saying)

It looks like we might be the first new nation I know of to survive tier 1. I am all for going top 16 now if the draw is not horrific for us. As always draw will play a part. But on the face of things now. Top 16 for me. Really back this season up

If our current world ranking is to be justified then we need to make the last 16.
We might be in EE.1 and deservely so as this team beat the teams presented before them but unless we make it count in the WC any position less than a top 16 would have to be classified as a disappointment. Draw aside this team has potential

Agree with all the above, we already have a trophy in the bag, so making top 16 would be a bigger statement!!

Well it is looking like the top 16 is the target for Zim at this world cup. Lets hope the draw is kind to us and we can have a real crack at it.
