After 2 games Azerbaijan conceded no goal! It’s a record, too. Before the WCQ round started, Azerbaijan head coach Prosinecki said that, “May be we get good results and go to World Cup 2018 Final Tourment, Why Not?!”. After his comment, that two words became Azerbaijani fans’ new slogan: #WhyNot (in azerbaijani: #NiyəDəYox, #NiyeDeYox). Now these 3 hashtags are trending on Twitter and Facebook in Azerbaijan.
And of course, fans not forget to screenshot the Group table, beacuse no one has seen that pic ever before.
Azerbaijan’s next matches will not be easy as San Marino and Norway. The Team will face Czech Republic and Nothern Ireland both away.
Let’s see what happenes next and may be Azerbaijan can continue thit historical results, Why Not? 🙂
