With the first game kicking off in a few minutes I'd better try and get some enthusiasm up for this tournament.

I've never seen so little interest about the place for a big football tournament. The big highlight seems to be can republic of Ireland grind out 3 nil - nil draws and squeeze through to the next round.

As for England, another quarter final defeat beckons as soon as we come up against a decent team, and our top scorer is Danny Wellbeck with 9 goals all season. Not much promise of entertainment there:

I see that only the BIG THREE predictors ie mrmalaki, T4t and Darkside have qualified for Europe. Nice to get rid of the dross over the summer.

It's proving to be a tricky tournament to predict so far, but I'm glad to say that's because the games have been more entertaining than usual, apart from another boring performance from Portugal.

A very decent performance by England and bumper points for Darkside.

Croatia with the quickest goal though I think gives me the lead over night!
