    That would be a nice one ;)

    For Germany I hope to get Austria and Turkey, that would be nice matches. Also hope for a inner-british battle.

    Easy one for Germany. Little disappointed about the rest, since there's no "big" match in the group stage. England v Wales should be good regarding the atmosphere. Group E could be the most intereseting, looks very open.

    Group E is sick, sad that so many good teams are stuck in one group.

    Watching Ibra take on the Italians and Belgians will be sweet, but yeah, Sweden does seem to get hosed pretty often.

    Looking at the last two tournaments, it's just you I'm afraid. In 2008 Sweden had Spain, Greece and Russia. Tough but far from the toughest one. In 2012 they actually got one of the two easier groups with host Ukraine as the head plus France and England, both struggling at this time.

    Now it was bad luck, I agree, although I'm not sold on Belgium.

    Group F is the group of megadeath. The winner of that group will reach the finals.

    What happened to your team? Did everyone get old and injury prone?
