Discussion in 'Euro 2016' started by Onket, Jun 25, 2014.
Qualifying starts in September, I think. Looking forward to it already.
50 years of hurt...
I might get some scarves made up.
This is THE one
Seriously though, France, Eurotunnel, Kronenburg, hmmm, plastic chairs, isn't it. Hmmm.
Everyone seems to know the score.....
Be interesting to see how many fans Wales take over there.
I'll be taking my deckchair.
Deckchairs wasn't it, yes.
Lest we forget that the scene of England's most recent major tournament victory was also in France at Le Tournoi in 1997, when we triumphed over Brazil, France and Italy.
shearer still had hair.
World cup in 1966
Euros cup in 2016
Switzerland, Slovenia, Estonia, San Marino and Lithuania,not exactly a qualifying group to get pulses racing......
Scotland and the Republic of Ireland have been drawn together in one of the toughest groups in qualifying for the 2016 European Championship.
Their group also includes Germany, Poland, Georgia and Gibraltar.
England face Switzerland, Slovenia, Estonia, Lithuania and San Marino while Wales have drawn Bosnia-Hercegovina, Belgium, Israel, Cyprus and Andorra.
Northern Ireland are in Group F with Greece, Hungary, Romania, Finland and the Faroe Islands.

Wales have a handyish group......
For a brief moment about a decade ago, Wales were one of the best supported teams in Europe (before it all imploded, as usual).
I've posted it before, but it's worth a re-read, great write-up of a Wales away trip, here-
San Marino to be shock group winners and progress to the semis.
So when does the forum get set up then? There is a lot of speculation to fit in between now and then.
I really think this is what England are aiming for. Already have a world cup win so they used this year's world cup as a sounding board for new talent. I think..... It is.... Coming home
Currently in Group A, Iceland sit second behind Czech Republic, five points clear of Turkey and the Netherlands.
Ah bollix, the Netherlands just scored so that's not quite true any more Still ahead though!
anyone put in for tickets in the ballot?
Iceland now top after going ahead against C.Republic!
croatia drawing vs italy, welsh beating the moule frites, icerland beating the czechs
lars lagerback is the manager IIRC
Cronny scores a hat trick for Portugal agin Armenia.......
Faroe Islands currently 2-0 up against former Euro champs Greece
Greece have long not been the 'force' that won in 2004, but that's still some pretty good going for the Faroes!
These qualis have been pretty good for the 'smaller' nations, think a lot of people put that down to the expanded tournament, although I also think those nations have just become more savvy and have better resources behind them.
Greece actually had a better WC last year than England tbh,made the knock out stages.....
