Absolutely devastated for Welbeck. A real blow to 2018 qualifying hopes as well.

Germany for me, they could be the next Spain and win 3 big tournaments in a row.

The surprise package will be Switzerland who'll make the Semis!

Russia 3:4 Slovakia
England 0:1 Wales
Slovakia 2:2 England
Russia 0:2 Wales

Wales 9pts. (5-1) Slovakia 4pts. (7-7) Russia 3pts. (5-6) England 1pts. (2-5)

MVP of the Group: Bale (WAL)

Group C:

Poland 2:2 Northern Ireland
Germany 1:1 Ukraine
Ukraine 3:1 Northern Ireland
Germany 3:1 Poland
Northern Ireland 0:2 Germany
Ukraine 2:1 Poland

Germany 7 pts. (6-2) Ukraine 7pts. (6-3) Poland 1pts. (4-7) Northern Ireland 1pts. (3-7)

MVP of the Group: Neuer (GER)

Group D:

Turkey 1:0 Croatia
Spain 1:0 Czech Republic
Czech Republic 1:3 Croatia
Spain 5:1 Turkey
Croatia 2:3 Spain
Czech Republic 1:3 Turkey

Spain 9pts. (9-3) Turkey 6pts. (5-6) Croatia 3pts. (5-5) Czech Republic 0pts. (2-7)

MVP of the Group: Iniesta (ESP)

Group E:

Ireland 0:2 Sweden
Belgium 0:3 Italy
Italy 2:1 Sweden
Belgium 7:1 Ireland
Sweden 1:1 Belgium
Italy 2:1 Ireland

Italy 9pts. (7-2) Belgium (8-5) Sweden 4pts. (4-3) Ireland 0pts. (2-11)

MVP of the Group: Buffon (ITA)

Group F:

Austria 3:0 Hungary
Portugal 3:3 Iceland
Iceland 0:3 Hungary
Portugal 1:1 Austria
Iceland 3:4 Austria
Hungary 0:2 Portugal

Austria 7pts. (8-4) Portugal 5pts. (6-4) Hungary 3pts. (3-5) Iceland 1pts. (6-10)

MVP of the Group: Alaba (AUT)

Round of 16:

France 1:2 Ukraine
Spain 2:1 Hungary
Wales 1:0 Croatia
Austria 4:1 Belgium
Germany 3:3 Russia [GER 5-3 pens]
Italy 0:2 Turkey
Romania 0:2 Sweden
Slovakia 3:1 Portugal

Quarterfinals:

Ukraine 2:1 Spain
Wales 0:3 Austria [a.e.t.]
Germany 0:2 Turkey
Sweden 0:3 Slovakia

Semifinals:

Ukraine 1:0 Austria
Turkey 1:0 Slovakia

Final:

Ukraine 0:2 Turkey

MVP of the Knockouts: Turan (TUR)

Gold Boot: Janko (AUT)

Considering I currently have Ukraine ranked #3 in the world, this is feasible. Also Turkey has been quietly improving after a disastrous 2014 WC campaign. Their EURO qualifying didn't get off to a hot start either, but they were one of the better teams in Europe during the final 2/3 of qualifying.

1 point for England? My word I sincerely hope that simulation doesn't come true laugh.gif

You need to put a stake on Turkey! Brilliant odds right now.

Multiple simulations using footysimulator.co.uk

After running multiple simulations for a matchup, it chose the best scoreline/result by what came up most often. Believe it or not that 7-1 score came up alot. Poor Ireland in major tournaments...

Out there for the whole tournament. Tickets for Albania vs. Romania, Iceland vs. Austria (both last games of the group so should have something on them for one or both sides making them more interesting than they appear), a R16 match, the Lyon semi final and for all England games as far as they go! biggrin.gif

6 of us going (plus a couple of others for a week or so), driving and camping wherever possible. Been planning and saving for it since the beginning of 2013 now. Would've loved to go to a World Cup but Brazil too soon, Russia too big and not exactly an appealing place, and no desire at all to go to Qatar, so the next time it might be held somewhere we'd want to and could go to would be 2026, all of us nearing 40 probably have a lot more commitments making it not possible to sod off from England for a month or so.

Had tickets to all England home matches in the last two years (didn't go to them all, only so many times England at Wembley on a midweek night has any appeal) and also done four of the aways (Scotland, Ireland, San Marino and Spain) and managed to have enough 'caps' to get tickets to all the matches, not even had to go for any of the expensive options, 55 each for the group matches, slightly over 600 for all 7 matches should we get that far, refunded if not. I can't wait now, it's come around quick though!

Sounds amazing Mark, I'm jealous. I know a guy that's in the England Supporters Group and he loves it, sounds like he has a right laugh. Certainly a once in a lifetime opportunity, and not too far to travel either. I was tempted to go to the Euros this year, but I'm going to wait until 2020 instead. Or chance my luck at least!

Seeing the squad France have taken to the Euros, I'm not convinced at all. I can see why they're big favourites, but I will be well avoiding them in the betting.
