My bet is on Spain winning 2nd in a row...way too much talent even with Villa out and Torres sitting on the bench.

The time of Germany has arrived. Incredible talented offense, defense a bit shaky though.

Only if Michael Ballack comes back to score 15 goals.

Barely any talk about the Euros? Come on, guys.....NickV? Is Portugal getting out of Group B?

Eh, they have been far from convincing in their warm up matches against macedonia and turkey. Our defense looks pretty suspect and our offense is creating chances but not burying the goals.

But since euro 2000 they seem to step it up when the games matter.

I think we can take a loss against germany but we need to get a result against the dutch and the danes. I'm hoping nelson oliviera starts as striker because postiga and almeida and average at best.

If memory serves me correctly every Portugal game falls on the weekend, but id have to double check. If one does fall on a work day I will for sure take a couple hours off to watch a game.

These tourneys only come around every 4 years!

Netherlands vs germany is gonna be a awesome game. Wonder if robben will actually show up and not disappear in a major game now.

i know my boys from poland wont win the whole tourney, but this is there chance to do some damage, they didnt have to qualify, they're at home, and arguably in one of the eaiser groups i've ever seen at a euro. go POLSKA

All group games fall on the same day, I believe the Portugal/Denmark game next week is on wednesday at 12pm ET.

I think Germany is the only real lock of the group to go through. The Netherlands should, but Denmark and Portugal are capable of taking points via a win/tie. I've read some articles saying that this is the toughest group EVER in an international tournament. All 4 teams are in the FIFA top 10....thats crazy.
Anyone wanna predict the group games for me? I'm doing a tourney thing with some friends but I.. I'm not too familiar with the teams. I just need to place 8th to move on to the next stage where random teams are assigned in the knock off stage.
