I think they are in another level too. But we were talking about South korea, thailand vs germany, bulgaria, azerbajian before, and that was called a second tier european teams.
I think european team level could be divided into
Russia Turkey Netherlands Poland
Germany Bulgaria Azerbajian Belgium
i agree with this division, so according to this, I believe THA-KOR are not better than second tier teams although they can beat them once in every 5 years but they're on the same level with third tier European teams. I hope this would make the discussion more clear
