Brazil overall favourites but traditionally the South American teams struggle in Europe with only 2 beaten finalists to their names since Brazil won in Sweden in 1958. If you were offering me a free bet I'd take France with maybe Croatia as a live outsider.

In fighting going to prevent Belgium making shapes again??

Stephen Wallace rumoured to be taking over them.

Belgium always strike me as a talented bunch of individuals but not a great team if that makes sense? But if it does click for them they could go close.

Yeah, always good players but underperform.
Martinez no bad manager but getting them to gel cant be easy.

The players not in the France squad is mental and would push most teams close

Who is everyone 'supporting' this time? My two (other) favourites, the Netherlands and Italy haven't made it. Might pick Portugal because of the flag.

I'm always an Italian supporter as I am a small bit Italian. Probably will plump with Germany this time. The wee lad is pinning his hopes on Spain. Looking forward to it.

Fancy France this year, managed to back the top scorer in the Euros last time but struggling to have a pick this time! Last time out over 9 corners was a decent bet for me
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

The french squad looks very strong on paper anyway.
Hard to know what they will go with for the starting lineup though
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow doesn't look good either
