    Groups A and F might be the toughest IMO.

    First Euro ever - Already underestimating opponents :laugh:

    Especially Denmark, who are not only a stronger team than Finland, and id say also Russia, but also have 3 home games.

    Finland has 3 players in a very weak Danish league, (6 if you wanna count callups) Denmark doesn't even have any players who play domestically on the sr. mens team.

    Also 2 from the Norwegian league (Also weak) and 2 from the Swedish League (Also weak)


    Anything can happen in football, but 0pts for Denmark and 6 for Finland? - Come on man...
    Denmark hasn't lost a game in 34 straight games, if you don't count a friendly against Slovakia, where the Danish players were on strike and the Danish team consisted of litteral amateurs.

    And a penalty loss at the WC against Croatia.

    Denmark won't make any noise at the EC, they are in the midst of generation change on many positions and are awaiting a new coach after the EC, aswell as a total restructure at the FA - But I do not think Finland will either, and are definitely the weakest link of the group on paper.

    And like SEPH writes, Russia has a bad habbit of being bullshit at tournaments - Belgium are clear favourites tho.

    Winners
    Group A: Turkey & Italy
    Turkey has their gold generation and Italy isn't a top nation any more, would not be surprised if they don't make it especially with Wales.

    Group B: Belgium & Denmark
    Pretty weak group, but Finland isn't going anywhere and we all know that Russia is failure at every level on the international spectrum.

    Group C: Netherlands & Ukraine
    Not a very interesting group, fairly straight forward.

    Group D: England & Croatia
    Hard to see Croatia replicate their success from the last World Cup, while England has been fairly decent in the qualifying portion. If Serbia gets through they can be a problem nation, but Croatia has enough talent to finish second.

    Group E: Spain & Sweden
    Very tough group and if Northern Ireland or Bosnia make it, it will be that much tougher. I have no faith in Poland, they were a disaster in the World Cup and Lewandowski sucks on the international stage. Poland should finish second, they have enough talent, but Sweden has better structure and better teamwork that they should make it through.

    Group F: France & Portugal
    Insane group, especially when Iceland should be favourites to win the playoff round. Hard to bet against those two nations (FRA/POR) though, France just won the World Cup and should be feared. Portugal is playing as good as anyone is and I think Germany is going through a generation change which happened to Italy. I also don't buy Germany's strikers at the moment and I think the DFB is as old-skool gang as you can think of considering what happened with the immigrant players the past year or so. I sense a lot of divide in their ranks, especially at the top.

    Fun fact, Finland are on a 7 game unbeaten streak against Belgium, going back to 1968 :D

    Group F is awesome. Can’t wait for the Euro. Hoping Memphis, van Dijk and Wijnaldum stay healthy.

    The winner of Group C probably has the most open path to the semifinals, they don’t face a group winner until the semis (however the quarterfinal match is in Baku)

    They do? I can barely name players of the current team. I feel they peaked in the previous decade when Emre, Nihat, Topal, Altintop, Arda Turan etc. were at their best

    Germany probably has been the shakiest of the 3 teams in group F recently, but they’ll be at home at Allianz for all 3 group matches.

    Maybe not gold but they definitely have a very young and talented team

    Tough group for Germany. But Germany is a nemesis for Portugal. For me 1st and 2nd Place Germany or France.
    Finland has a brutal Group. Mayba 1 Point is possible. ;)

    Havertz, Brandt, Gnabry, Klostermann, Goretzka etc. are not old school. Germany is a tournament team.

    What happened with the "immigrant" players last year in Germany? You mean Özil and his alliance with Mr. Erdogan? It was a shameful performance by this guy. Gündogan btw. is still with the NT and is well respected. So are Hector, Sane and all the other guys.

    Agreed. I didn't think those 3 would be in the same group.

    We got 7 tickets for 2 matches in the lottery in the summer. The second one will be France vs. Portugal. Could have been worse.

    Portugal can't face Romania in the group stage. If Romania qualifies, they'll be in group C with Netherlands, Ukraine and Austria.

    16/24 advances so Portugal-France-Germany should all advance that's why 24 teams tournaments are terrible. 16 was perfect, they should go to 32 it would not be worst than 24.
