A twist. A complication. Call it what you will, calling the qualifiers from this extra fatty European Championships is going to be tricksier than a Ronaldo step-over.
Six groups, with the top two in each progressing, along with the four third placers with the best record. So basically, two weeks of group stage football eliminates just 8 teams. Worth it?
Anyways, Group A is the hosts to lose. But I think they will win it. Watch out for stories about team disharmony though, as that’s a French speciality, like Tuna Nicoise. They will have too much for their fellow groupies and will finish unbeaten.
Not much to choose between the Swiss and Romanians. I think both will qualify. Mainly because I think Albania will finish win-less, point-less, but not goal-less.
GROUP A PREDICTION: 1. FRANCE 2. SWITZERLAND 3. ROMANIA 4. Albania
