    Who's gonna win the EC?

    Which countries will surprise this time??

    Any interesting new players since the World Cup, that could influence the outcome of the Cup??

    In fact, everything about the European Cup, can be discussed in here...

    Personally, I'd like to see Denmark win this time, but being in group with Sweden, Italy and Bulgaria, it's hard to tell...
    BUT, they (Denmark) won 3-2 against England, so maybe they stand a tiny chance...

    Which country would like to see on the top of the podium??

    I'd like to see Rep Of Ireland but seeing as they couldn't even take a point from Switzerland...i don't think so

    Yeah but we (England) never bother with friendly matches. ;)

    I reckon we'll be tough to beat but I reckon France will do it. With Henry they have probably the best striker in the world at present.

    Yeah France's recent form is incredible.

    Still maybe a cheap Beckham penalty will do it!

    even though Greece is in a tough group, i like our chances of going through to the quarters at least. going all the way will be out of our reach, but on current form (6 wins and a draw in last 7 played) i think we just might progress.

    our pool consists of spain, portrugal and russia. we beat spain in spain during the qualifiers, and drew with portrugal in portrugal during a friendly a few weeks back. i might be being a little biased, but i think we should be able to progress.

    if there are all the players, i think that Italy has the best attack: Vieri, Inzaghi, Totti, Del Piero and the revelation Cassano...

    Well, that might be right... but the attack only doesn't make a good team, as you might know ;)

    But Italy have a strong team... they are a good candidate to the cup... and they're in group with Denmark :stick:

    Nah, we'll show those Italians :D :moon:

    Well, I'm gonna go for England and be a hopeful supporter! Although, I think the Portugese will have a huge advantage playing at home, and they have some class players too!

    It's gonne be between France, Portugal, England and possible Italy.

    C'MON ENGLAND!!!!!

    Group A:

    Portugal
    Spain

    Group B:

    France
    England

    Group C:

    Denmark
    Italy

    Group D:

    Czech Republic
    Germany

    This is what i think should be the teams to go thru. Holland has a lot of talented players but too many individualists. So i think they will have another upset again. This list is based on the strongest in the groups but from history i feel that there will be some underdogs going thru also.

    World cup 2002:
    Senegal 1 France 0!!!!!
