EURO 2008 Final Group Draw

It had been decided…the group for the EURO next year. It’s really interesting to know the group early, so that all the teams involved can make early preparations for the tournament that only second behind the FIFA’s World Cup in terms of prestige. It’s even easier for football fans worldwide to start making speculations. I really hope that the upcoming tournament will be as interesting as possible…something that personally I didn’t get for the EURO 2004. It’s not like I hate Greece (I respect them for their continuous effort to become previous champions nonetheless), it’s just their play style is somehow out of the ordinary to the norm of the competition. By referring to the next year’s group stage, I believe many fans would agree with me that group C is a group of death. Hey…I even wondering for a while after knowing the draw that maybe all the group C’s team would say “This is hell~~“. Personally, it’s hard for me to say (predict) for sure who had the chance to uplift the trophy this time. France, Italy, and Germany is among the big names in my mind right now to be a serious challenger but at this stage, names means nothing. Below is the final draw and looking forward for it next year~~
