Albania did well to earn a 0-0 draw with Denmark in Friday night while withstanding a barrage of shots. The draw keeps them in contention to earn an unexpected Euro 2016 place, that campaign started when they stole a surprise 1-0 victory over Portugal. They meet the top of the group again on Monday night, playing host with a chance to go top with another win. It'll be interesting to see how Portugal approaches this game. There's a temptation for a high quality team to enjoy ball possession a little too much. They might be better off going for the kill early and hoping to force a change of approach from Albania. Portugal are top of Group I, but their qualifying campaign hasn't been that impressive. They have just seven goals in six games and haven't impressed in many of the games. There's a feeling that they are just a little overdependent on Cristiano Ronaldo. This squad and its talent needs to come together before the major tournament in the summer .
