Hey friends :)
hope you are fine.
i just want to post a new publication on my blog! Please help me.
this sentence is correct?
Delighted and happy to see our National Team qualifying for the World Cup”

the using of “qualifying” on this sentence is right and correct?
and no problem on using “Happy” and “Delighted” is the same sentence?
ah and the last question, there are no problems on ponctuation? Should I add a missing ponctuation? Thank you soooo much

I suggest:

I am delighted that our national team qualified for the World Cup.

(I didn't make more corrections because I'm tired and need to rest.)

How [STRIKE]to[/STRIKE] should I use “qualifying” [STRIKE]on[/STRIKE] in a sentence?
[STRIKE]Hey friends :)[/STRIKE]
[STRIKE]hope you are fine.[/STRIKE]
[STRIKE]i just want to post a new publication on my blog![/STRIKE] Please help me with a new post on my blog.
this sentence is correct? Remember to capitalize the first letter of a sentence and flip subject/verb in a question. Is this sentence correct?

Delighted and happy to see our National Team qualifying for the World Cup” A blog often has a fairly informal, conversational tone, so a sentence with no subject may be acceptable, but you should be aware of the error.

1.
Is the use of “qualifying” [STRIKE]on[/STRIKE] in this sentence [STRIKE]is[/STRIKE] right and correct? Not really. It reads as if the "seeing" (watching on TV) of the qualifying was what made you delighted and happy, when I'm sure it was the fact of the qualifying that made you feel good. Better as: Delighted and happy to see (that) our national team has qualified for the World Cup.

2. [STRIKE]and no[/STRIKE]
Is there any problem [STRIKE]on[/STRIKE] with using “Happy” and “Delighted” is the same sentence? Not really- there's no rule against using such near synonyms together, but your sentence would have more impact if you could express a wider range of emotion, such as: I was surprised and delighted to see our National Team qualify for the World Cup.

3. [STRIKE]ah and the last question, [/STRIKE]
Are there are [STRIKE]no[/STRIKE]anyproblems [STRIKE]on ponctuation[/STRIKE] punctuation? Should I add [STRIKE]a[/STRIKE] any missing [STRIKE]ponctuation[/STRIKE] punctuation?Thank you so[STRIKE]ooo[/STRIKE] much!

Not unless the team's name is "National Team". Otherwise, it's incorrect and stands out as wrong.
