EURO 2008 Draw: A Bonafide Group of Death

Group A

Switzerland
Czech Republic
Portugal
Turkey

Group B

Germany
Austria
Croatia
Poland

Group C

France
Netherlands
Italy
Romania

Group D

Greece
Spain
Russia
Sweden

I think we can all pretty much agree that Group C is going to be particularly exciting to watch. With Netherlands, France, Italy all duking it out, I wouldn’t be surprised if Romania snuck through – we’re talking about an under-rated team here that finished in front of Netherlands in qualifying.

If Hiddink sticks with Russia, I can see a great tournament coming from them as they have a rather favorable draw. Heading on over to Group B, Austria is going to get slaughtered – Germany and Croatia look pretty dominant in that field. The wonder of the European Championship though is the underdog – like Greece in 2004, Denmark in 1996 – my dark horse pick is Russia.

Second Round Picks:
GROUP A – Czech Republic, Portugal
GROUP B – Croatia, Germany
GROUP C – Netherlands, Italy
GROUP D – Spain, Russia

Who’s winning it all? Your dark horse?
