    Has anyone looked at the odds on the home countries (including ROI) not winning a game between them? The England/Wales game makes it less likely, but a draw there is fairly probable.

    I would have gone with France before last night. Probably still France tbh but they do badly need to sort the defence out.

    Pretty ordinary teams floating around. I'm going to stab at Germany just because they haven't won it for 20 years so are overdue by their standards.

    Bit late to the thread, but after watching a few games, I'll go for Italy. Not that I know much tbf.

    Four people said France and no one said Portugal.

    Did give a shout to Portugal after the knockout draw in another thread.

    A few people fancied them for the final after all the big boys had contrived to dump themselves in the same half of the draw. Though I have to say that after despising them throughout I'm beginning to want them to win now Germany are out.

    I put money on them at 20/1 after the Austria game.

    Reckoned everyone was too busy laughing at Ronaldo to realise they were decent.

    It's a prediction thread not a sweepstake.

    Cheers Uppers - was one of those situations where I wasn't planning to watch because I can't stand either of them, but it will give me some vicarious pleasure if you take a few quid off the bookies, so worth watching now

    You must be easily persuaded if something not worth watching sudden becomes worth watching due to a 50% chance of an anonymous multi-millionaire losing a couple of quid.

    First and last time I'll ever be described as an anonymous multi-millionaire.

    On the other hand I am often easily persuaded, generally by women it has to be conceded, but not always
