france to beat germany in the final.
I'm rooting for Albania and Spain, although France will have the best chance of all to win this one.
Spain will face France/Germany in the final. And lose.
It is known.
Portugal will naturally go past the group stage, and maybe reach the quarters. But no further.

Anybody planning on going to any games/fan parks in france this summer?
As I said it's not that I fancy them greatly but they are going very unnoticed and with that central midfield pairing, combined with Ronaldo up top, and an experienced and game intelligent back 4 (especially in tournament football) they can go very far.
I'd still say France are favourites due to their team, home advantage and how the draw works out for them.
"Its not about the long ball or the short ball, its about the right ball."
Won't watch Euro until the QF and after that only if there are interesting games, which looks more likely like a big no. National Teams are getting less important each year.
Simply seems so boring and uninteresting to spend 2 weeks to see 8 teams out of the competition.
At least if they accepted teams like these, make it competitive, like only group winners and best 2 2nd place go further. This is a total joke.
I will watch more games from Copa America even if late at night.
Although most of the time we'll be watching the games at our villa/local bars which in the current climate is not a bad thing as we're based in a rural area.
Team Arda !
My mother is french, so I'll be rooting for france.
My prediction is as follows:
Round of 16
Switzerland v Poland
Spain v Sweden
England v Turkey
Portugal v Belgium
Germany v Wales
Italy v Croatia
France v Ukraine
Russia v Austria
Switzerland v Spain
England v Portugal
Germany v Italy
France v Austria
Spain v Portugal
Germany v France
Spain v France
I don't find it easy to predict due to there being of lot of really average teams imo. Spain have the best players, but Del Bosque will not get the most out of them imo. Can still see them win it, but can see them dropping out in the semis or so as well.
It's such a shame my own country doesn't participate this year....I find myself being not very excited about the Euros, and that never happens when we do participate.

I recon France, Germany and Spain will make the semi's and be joined by either Portugal/Belgium/England.
Put a few quid on those permutations anyways ! With possibly France to win it.
Team Arda !
The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) has confirmed the appointment of Giampiero Ventura as new national team coach after Euro 2016.
There is a beast in man that should be exercised, not exorcised!
