Posted in Euro 2008 at 4:56 pm by deadlymusings

The final installment of the Euro 2008 preview is upon us. In it is a group with one clear favorite and a bunch of possibilities for second spot.

The Fodder: Albania and Luxembourg. There’s a reason they were the opposing nation in ‘Wag the Dog.’ If there was anyone San Marino could beat in Europe it would probably be Luxembourg.

Will Walk This Group: The Netherlands. This group is so easy Marco van Basten has taken it upon himself to force Ruud van Nistelrooy and Mark van Bommel out of the Dutch squad indefinitely.

The Battle for Second: Belarus has a playmaker in Aliaksandr Hleb. Bulgaria has a tremendous amount of talent in midfield and defense, but the defending is suspect. Romania has a more even spread of talent, which could see them through. Slovenia has the potential to surprise everyone in this group.

Group Prediction:
Netherlands
Bulgaria
Romania
Belarus
Slovenia
Albania
Luxembourg
