Four years ago, when both England and the Republic of Ireland failed to qualify for Euro 2008, I supported Spain in the final as they became European champions after beating Germany.
This time round, my boys in green have to face them, as well as Italy and Croatia. It’s not going to be an easy ride but I hope we do well anyway.
Germany, on the other hand, have The Netherlands, Portugal and Denmark in their group. I think my back-up team (that’s Denmark, for those of you who are still in the dark) are pretty much screwed before they’ve even kicked a ball. Yes, they’ve beaten Portugal before now, but they still have to face the Germans and the Dutch.
Let’s just hope the Olsen-Banden (the Danes) don’t score an own goal against those who play in orange (the Dutch) this time…
