    And yes, I'm quite happy to support our country's athletes, even if I'm not a huge fan of the sport but if our country isn't represented there's no point.

    Croatia for me. Surprisingly nice place with generous people - I got given a Croatia footie shirt so it can't be anyone else. They also did us the biggest favour of the past 8 years. Shame that they don't have Eduardo after his horrific leg break. My second choice is Poland.

    I reckon that the orange machine will get all the way to the semis and then throw things away horribly despite having a squad of individual talent (like they always do). I'd like to see Croatia take it, but... not sure. I'll be following it because.... it's football

    Spain for me as it is every competition, they may well share Englands failures but atleast they play damn good football whilst they fail.

    It would be nice to see Spain do something for a change, i agree - they offer much promise then usually dissapoint - a bit like England !

    Hmm, but i do see the logic in it, i think only france have ever done the double world and euro champions, and no one has ever won the Euros 2 times on the trot, so Odds would be against Both Italy and Greece.

    Fundamental misunderstanding about probability and odds

    Bah, so much for Switzerland, though, they deserved a draw in their game!

    Looking good for Germany though, they seem the strongest of the teams we've seen so far.
