i must correct myself, the biggest underachiever is going to be france, netherland or italy, they're in the same group, so one of them is going to be loser for sure!

i was surprised too, i like czechs, they're always playing beautifull football but they are without rosicky and nedved, koller is old and not good as he was before (his team is relegated in bundesliga) and milan baros is not even a shadow of the player he used to be. since january he didn't scored even one goal for pompey. i was always put my money on czechs but i won't do that this year.

I have always said that if golden goal was not in play in Euro 96 then the Czechs would have come back. They had a harsh group in Euro 2000 and were robbed by dodgy decisions, seriously unlucky to lose to Greece in Euro 2004 and mystically flopped from a good start in the last world cup. They deserve some good luck that is for sure.


Well...to answer ya first question...i have a gut feel that Koller will turn back the clock with some super performances and go out with a bang(at 35, i don't envisage him playing any further with the national team after the Euros). He'll be pivotal to how far they progress.

As for the Czechs...well...i like them alot...who can forget Poborsky's goal against the Portuguese...sublime lob over the keeper with defenders hounding him(though he became pretty useless after joining manure)
I'll stick my neck out for them in any tournament... :Peace:
