    You know its a long shot, but there could just be some dodgy refereeing decisions / red cards / offside goals / bribery / corruption / match fixing etc that results in one of these underdog teams going all the way to the final, and winning. Stranger things have happened.

    Ireland and the co-hosts Poland are still available. Last orders gentlemen!

    Heard reports this morning that ten of the Ukrainian team came down with food poisoning, so thats unlucky for krispie. Sure that they are to play England in the group stages.

    I am not surprised to hear of skullduggery so early on in the comp, the Italians behind it too no doubt. This sly nobbling of the hot favourites has been practiced by the Romans on gladiators for millenia. What don't kill us will only make us stronger....more agile.....more nimble....more deadly.....yadayadayada....

    No more entries please and good luck to everyone who entered. If Poland or Ireland do win, the prizes will roll over to the next competition.

    Thought Russia were brilliant tonight, they might well be in with a shout. 4-1 was a let-off for the Czechs

    I agree E.K.Russia could take some stopping, although Germany is the team to beat i think

    You may be right, sq ames! Didnt expect them to beat Netherlands but they deserved the 3 points no doubt. How disappointing have the Dutch been???

    The Dutch have been schitt, well below their expected calibre of total football in fact. From what I've saw, I've really only been impressed by 3 teams, the mighty Germans, Spain and Portugal.

    I may also chuck in a consolation prize for the beaten finalists. EK Taper chose Holland at the world cup 2010 sweep and won some vuvuzelas which im sure his kids loved as much as my neighbours did lol.

    We're Scottish, what would we know about major football tourneys? We never get a favourable draw in a qualifying group though, do we?

    Aye, that vuvuzela thing has been well hidden!
    Glad I never took Holland this time though, they've been crap, no fight, urgency, nothing.
    Germans looking strong, Spain too, France and Portugal. AND England still in there so all to play for. I took Italy, so hopefully they'll creep up on the blind side.
