Football Euro 2012
So the draw was this evening and we now know which 4 teams will be in which group at Euro 2012.
Group A: Poland, Greece, Russia, Czech Republic
Group B: Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, Portugal
Group C: Spain, Italy, Republic of Ireland, Croatia
Group D: Ukraine, Sweden, France, England
Your opinions? I'm pretty sure that we have the worst group :(
B, C and D stink. Russia got really lucky. Bas****s!!!
Group A is a bit too easy compared to the other ones, lucky russians. Group D might seem like its already decided for England and France, but I smell drama .. neither Englad nor France are in good shape so it might be up for grabs for Ukraine and Sweden. Group B is simply insane, those teams are not just strong but also very in-shape .. Denmark emerged with some very talented young players, Portugal is filled with some of the most technically gifted players in europe, Netherlands are as solid as ever and I dont even have to mention how well is Germany doing on international stage ..
I agree on the fact that group B seems to be the group of death. No team will want to be in that group.
They are all in tip top shape, those four. Although the team that seems like they won't make it out of the group is Denmark.
Germany will qualify for sure but as to which team will join them I can't be sure. Netherlands perhaps given their current form. But then again you can't be too sure. No team is a pushover in football these days. Trust me I know. I'm from Ghana.....lol
Group B will definitely have the most exciting matches. Russia got seriously lucky. Group C, well Spain has that on lock. Group D does look like its up for grabs with England and France but watch out for Ukraine though.
Also don't underestimate Sweden with Ibrahimovic and Toivonen. They beat us 3-2 the last match of the qualification, however Holland was already placed and didn't go all out.

PS: Next week El Classico \o/
Yeah but I still don't think they will do anything. I see them either tying or losing their matches.
