Yeah because their group was really tough. Estonia finished second in it for a start. Serbia & Slovenia are hardly massive goal threats, then there's the Faroes & Northern Ireland. Hmm, tricky!
If you're that ignorant to think they'd get through that tough group you predicted, you're setting yourself up for a fall. I bet you were just as confident going in to the World Cup against Slovakia, New Zealand & Paraguay. If you couldn't even come out of that group you'd more than struggle to escape that one. They might be better now but qualifying tells you nothing. The World Cup told you that.
