Yeah, no shit.
Then again, if we want to be the European Champions, we have to beat everyone anyway. So let's start with the group phase.

I'm still in shock and pissed right off England is out, or any of the Home Countries and Ireland, but this leaves only one country to go for and that's Sweden.

i have a funny feeling this might finally be spains year. they have some wonderful players, especially technically. most teams in the world would love to have players of the calibre of fabregas, torres, iniesta, villa, joaquin, puyol, casillas ect...

luis aragones has also dropped Raul and they've been playing fantasically well ever since. im thinking i might go and put a bet on them winning it. also they are in what i'd consider to be the easiest group.

however this might also be very foolish since spain are notorious underachievers and when it comes to the big games, the crunch if you will, there's the strong possibility that they will bottle it. temprament is crucial in these situations. the germans and italians have it, i'm not sure if spain do.

Why, oh, why does Italy always (or so it seems) get a draw that includes France?

Even Croatia, huh? Aren't we underrating a bit? Croatia did beat England 3:2 (deservedly so) on Wembley, throwing them out of the tournament. The team is full of acclaimed players that play in the top European clubs.

They have the potential to go very far.

Mmm, but that's what all of us say and they let us down dreadfully every tournament....

I'm still jus stoked England failed to qualify.....but damn Group C is gonna be a ripper. Whod' have though the World Cup Finalists would meet not only in the Qualifying Competition, but also in the championship proper! Feel sorry for Romania after such a strong camapign, buit they've shown what they're capable of so who knows......

It means for us, Domenech's mocking once again...........................


It's becoming a real classic lately Italy-France, "luckily" it's the last game, where both teams may be qualified already, but it's gonna be a damn hit if it will be the contrary. Group C is definitely the most incredible one, I wouldn't underestimate Romania also, I don't think they will lose all their 3 games, they gonna be the true balance nail.

Spain will probably pass the group phase, even though Sweden and mostly Greece will be hard to beat. The russians have a good coach, but it depends as usual of the players, who are most of the times always undisciplined. But then, if the spanish go through, will they be able to beat one between Netherlands, France or Italy??...................Hm, everything can be, but I doubt. Spain never really made great tournaments, they have excellent single players, but when it comes up to show the balls this team always craps in itself.
