So.. here are my predictions (full group stage + bracket)
Keep in mind that this year (idk why) shit changed, and now SOME 3rd place teams WILL get through to the knockout stages, which is incredibly stupid as it will give certain team really easy matches.. but oh well.

french win i'm calling it

portugal is not going to semi finals please calm yourself angel
Is it not? It did last euro and lost to Spain in Semis.

edit: Portugal will easily make it out as #1 in groups, Belgium should be possible to beat and Portugal hasn't lost to England in like 70 years. I think we're safe.

last euro was 4 years ago, lots of things have changed since then. keep in mind spain were the reigning world champions and look at their laughable performance at the WC

While that is true, Ronaldo is good enough to solely put Portugal at the Semi's by himself if the opposition is not too hard.

The group is really easy, and the octaves/quarters aren't hard either, regardless of other groups' outcome.

I disagree tbh, while ronaldo may perform very well with real madrid keep in mind it's a superstar team. Portugal as a whole really isn't that good. Ronaldo will get them out of groups but who knows after that

Some underrated teams could turn out to perform pretty well. I'm hopeful for austria and switzerland and (very big maybe) albania

Well, the struggles of the Worldcup/Eurocup is the fact that it is single elimination bracket, but over the last decade we've come to perform pretty well or terrible.

2004 - EURO finals
2006 - WorldCup Semifinals
2008 - Lost to Germany 3-2 (they made the finals)
2010 - Insta knocked out by Spain by 1-0 (They won)
2012 - Semi-Finals (Lost to Spain in penalties, they won 4-0 over italy, we were the 2nd best team at the tournament)
2014 - We shit the bed (In our defense, 7/11 main squad players got injured before even the first game, and the last main defender got red carded)

We are after all the 4th highest ranked team in the Tournament.


My money is on England getting knocked out on the first round.

England is did really well during qualifiers, but we'll see. England always shits the bed as of late for some reason.
