Matches

The match schedule was established at a meeting in Israel on 8 January 2008.[1] However, Greece and Latvia failed to come to an agreement on matches between themselves, and, since the match schedule was not finalised by 16 January 2008 deadline, FIFA conducted a random draw to determine the fixtures.[2][3] The draw took place in Zagreb, Croatia at 16:00 CET on 30 January 2008, the eve of the XXXII Ordinary UEFA Congress.[4]
