Yeah i'm looking forward to it. Really hope for a Ireland v England final . But if not to meet them in the last 8 but not the group stages.
Poland - Group A, Ukraine - Group D
POT 1: Spain, Netherlands
POT 2: Germany, Italy, England, Russia
POT 3: Croatia, Greece, Portugal, Sweden
POT 4: Denmark, France, Czech Republic, Republic of Ireland
. Yeah that group would be awesome. .
Lovely bit of colouring in TBY.
Not a too shabby group for England though!
But no, we go to Czech Republic and play a 4-6-0 formation *sigh*
Republic of Ireland vs Spain - tactical preview:
Ireland (white) will defend extraordinarily deep with Spain (red) attempting to bore them to death by passing the ball between Busquets (16), Alonso (14), Villa (7), Pedro (17), Iniesta (6) and particularly Xavi (6). After 60 minutes of absolutely nothing happening because Ireland refuse to move, Del Bosque will make three changes bringing on Fabregas (for Alonso), Silva (for Pedro) and Torres (for a laugh/Villa). Trappatoni will respond by removing Keane (10) and bringing on Darren O'Dea to fit between Dunne (4) and St. Ledger (4) as the game peters out to a 0-0 draw with exactly nothing happening
At the kick-off de Jong (8) and Van Bommel (6) will assault Ronaldo (7) leading to a 21 man brawl which will last the entire match while only Robben (11) skulks off.
Yeah, most people in England think that England is Germany's biggest rival, nope, most Germans couldn't give two figs about Germany V England, It's Germany V Holland that's the match to win. I laughed as soon as I watched it come out of the pot.
Its the game of the round by a mile (with a doff of the cap to Spain vs Italy).
(In fact if you think about it, Spain have the worst group they could have got. They have 3 teams who are naturally quite defensive, reasonably astute and without delusions of trying to outplay them. The triple-Swiss, if you like!)
