Luxembourg have taken a step forward in their footballing history in the last few years. The European country can take a big step to reach League B of the Nations League and thus dream of qualifying for their first World Cup.
Luxembourg is one of those countries that the biggest teams wish to have in their group to count on 6 points. But everything has changed in the last decade and a half, since the 2006 World Cup.
A report from ‘Marca’ recalls that Luxembourg were the worst team in the world during the tournament in Germany. Now they are one step from gaining promotion to League B of the Nations League.
All this with a goal that is both difficult and exciting. The European team wants to reach its first World Cup. They will have it very complicated for Qatar 2022, although their development could leave them a more accessible group.
The draw against France in the Russia 2018 qualifying gave them the first great joy. They also drew with Bulgaria and beat Belarus, which earned them a place in the top 100 countries in the world.
