Ericson is sure that the upcoming matches will serve as good practice for the upcoming World Cup qualifying matches. The Faroe Islands has won against all three of the teams before – twice against Malta, and the new manager thinks that it’s good for the team to be the favorites in the group for once.

– It’s good mental practice, and of course we will do our best to win. You have to go for the win when the opportunity arises, he says.
