Group A

Before all of this kicked off, I predicted a tight group and I was right.

I also predicted that Poland and the Czech Republic would emerge from the group.  OK, I was wrong about one of those.

However, I wasn't wrong that Russia would not emerge from the group.  I didn't predict Greece, but then how many other people did?  Not many, just like eight years ago.  That said, I would be absolutely gobsmacked if they managed to pull of that particular feat again.

This has the potential to be a tough, tight group.

I see the co-hosts making it through along with the Czech Republic. I'm not sure if this is relevant, but in previous years there might have been more than a faint whiff of such teams not wanting to upset their large 'friend'. I'm sure that now, twenty plus years since the Fall of European Communism there is a great delight to be gained from beating them.

That said, Russia have Dick Advocaat in charge so they will be no mugs.

Greece were surprise winners in Spain / Portugal back in 2004 but I can't see them doing anything other than making up the numbers - but then that's what people said of them 8 years a go, so what do we know eh?
