My tip of the euros is Hungary to be lowest scorers in the tournement @ 5/1. Very tough group with Portugal, Germany and France.

Watched them against Ireland a few days ago and created very little, especially considering they had home advantage.

Will this group provide 3 places in the last 16? I'd say it might.

And sure theyre talkin about makin the World Cup bigger too if its not already confirmed. Pile of yite.

But yes ill be watching too 😎
Thats an even bigger joke as very few extra places go to UEFA - Why do UEFA seem so weak when it comes to these changes considering the best team apart form Brazil and Argentina are all European. Expect more games for England against Panama and Tunisia and the likes and watch the whole country and media lose the run of themselves thinking they will win the whole thing.

Yes a huge issue for mid and low ranking European countries. Think only 3 of the additional 16 spots for UEFA in 2026. Typically 12 of the final 16 will be from Europe. 16 spots from 48. Current world rankings have 27 European teams in top 48.

24 teams is a joke. Half of the teams are crap.

If they are crap, how bad is the two teams on this Island?

Better team then Ireland didn't qualify. Norway and Serbia. The expanded number does dilute it a bit as most qualify to knockout stage, 16 from 24.
Good for the smaller nations to get a chance all the same. Pandev with Macedonia at 37 oldest outfield player in the tournament.

Football in Europe has been  milked for all its worth. Much more lucrative for FIFA to get China and Indonesia into the World Cup than Slovenia and Luxembourg.

My tip for the top is Portugal to retain their trophy. They have a better team and squad than 4 years ago.

What were Uefa playing at  with the draw putting Portugal, France and Germany in the same group. They are arguably the 3 best teams in the tournament. Hungary have no chance.

Bizarrely, world champions and tournament favourites France were the 2nd seed, whilst current holders Portugal are 3rd seed!
Not sure how it's calculated.

I know we were useless in 2012 but in fairness we had 3 of the best teams in the tournament that year as well, makes you think the seedings/draw are seriously flawed

Not sure how it's calculated.
Ukraine will be one of the six top seeds for the Euro 2020 finals draw on Nov. 30, leaving world champions France and holders Portugal unseeded.

Seeding for the draw, which is being held in Bucharest, is based purely on performance in qualifying for this tournament.

Ukraine won six of their eight qualifiers, only drawing their away matches in Portugal and Serbia, to secure their place. They are joined by hosts England, Germany, Italy, and Spain, with the final place taken by Belgium.

France missed out on a place among the seeds by one point, with Artem Biesiedin's 93rd-minute equaliser for Ukraine in Serbia on Sunday proving to be the difference.

But it's worse for Portugal, who dropped seven points in qualifying and finished runners-up to Ukraine, which is only good enough for a place in Pot 3.

Thats taken from a website in November 2019. suppose its fair enough then.

Have went for France and Kane to be top scorer, 40/1

Hopefully Mackers gives us his tips before the tournament starts, he's usually on the ball...... After its over that is

I agonised over picking him also but picked Kane, scores penalties and likes to score against smaller teams, hes captain and should stay on full games.. providing hes fit

Might get a decent opening game tonight. Turkey are a lot of pundits dark horses and Mancini's Italy have won their past eight games without conceding a goal and are unbeaten since 2018.

16,000 will be in attendance and 1990 since a major tournament game was played in Italy.

Yeah Italy have their 3 Group games in Rome. They will be looking to do well after missing out on 2018 World Cup.

Same here with players like Ronaldo, Jota, Felix, Fernandes and Silva...they will score goals
