    That's interesting. I assume it deviates from the normal A1 vs B2, B1 vs A2 etc format because of the complication of some third-placed teams going through?
    Correct. Thereís 6 group winners 6 runners up and 4 best 3rd places get into the last 16. Of the 6 runners up, 4 play another runner up and only two get a winner from another group.

    Portugal have a great squad right now, much better strength in depth than they normally have.

    With players like Cancelo, Dias, Guerro, Danilo, Neves, Renato Sanches, Bernaro Silva, Felix, Jota, Ronaldo I could see them coming ahead of Germany in their group.

    Germany will obviously be strong but fullback position is a real problem for them just now. With the strong wingers portugal have I think they'll beat Germany.
    And Bruno Fernandes.

    I think Portugal are the value bet for the Euros personally. I have it between them, France and Belgium in terms of a bet. Probably favour Belgium overall but like Portugal at the prices.

    Yeah, they would likely face Belgium in the quarters. Theyíre my second favourites behind France; you canít argue with their form; seemingly ageless defence, Barella doing his best Baggio impression and I like Chiesa up front. Italy and France donít seem to have any weaknesses to me, plenty of cover in positions and most of their players havenít gone far in European club competitions this year.
    I think Donnarumma is a cracking keeper too and if he had just a little more experience I'd really fancy their chances.

    Bet365 are offering 9 on Italy which seems very good odds. I can't quite see how they have England as second favourites at 6. I wonder what odds they would offer for England, Scotland and Wales to make it to the last 4?

    The winner of our group plays the runner up in the France Portugal Germany group. So it might end up being advantageous to finish second in our group, youíd then play whoever is second in theSweden/Spain group.
    The big countries like England need to win almost every game to win the tournament so probably won't be up to any jiggery poker to finish out of the top spot in our group and the other countries are probably not good enough to take the foot off the pedal at any time.
    It is exciting to at least be part of the tournament for a change.

    Thanks for the heads up.
    I like FernŠndez at Man Utd as well.
    Seems a great professional as well as a great player.

    Portugal are hard to predict, lots of exciting attacking players and Fontes had a great season with Lille, their manager is extremely defensive minded (awful boring Greece teams as well as fairly dull but successful Portugal national team five years ago), so might not be good on the eye, they know how to win though.

    So going by the poll so far, it's looking like Belgium and France are most peoples favourites for the semi final, followed by England and Germany, with Italy just behind them.

    Surprised that there are more votes for Scotland than Portugal, at present.

    Donnarumma isn't that short on experience. Young but has played loads for Milan and Italy.

    Wide open tournament and really difficult to call the group of death, with France, Germany and Portugal.
    With three games in Munich, the Germans may do better than expected.
    Anyhoo, I've got Germany v Italy and Netherlands v Portugal in the semis.
    That's with Portugal knocking out England and Spain (on penalties) and Italy edging out Belgium in the last eight.

    Interesting that North Macedonia have three votes

    Which is more votes than Switzerland (1), Turkey (0), Wales (2), Russia (0), Austria (0), Ukraine (2), Croatia (1), Czech Republic (0), Poland (0), Slovakia (1), Sweden (0) and Hungary (1)

    Am I missing something?

    I think a few posters have gone for a semi-final line-up of Scotland plus whoever they deem the three weakest teams.

    Obviously the votes overall are a mixture of what people think will happen, what they want to happen, what they think would be funny, folk who've studied form and potential opponents/pathways, folk who've just just picked four of the traditional contenders etc etc. I wouldn't read too much into any of it.
    Logan, McGregor, Hanlon (Gunnarsson 83), Fontaine (Henderson 70), Gray, Fyvie, McGeouch, McGinn, Stevenson, Stokes, Cummings (Keatings 65)
