    Woy really did cock things up by playing a weakened team when we had the opportunity to win the group. That half of the draw is a hell of a lot easier.

    It's going to be Croatia, Belgium, Portugal, or even Wales in the final from that half.

    England could beat France, or Germany, or Italy on our day. Maybe at a push Spain. We're certainly not going to beat two of them, which we'd have to do to get to the final.

    I'm glad France have to play Ireland. Hopefully we'll break down Iceland, and the France v Ireland game exhausts them both. England v Ireland would be a great contest, and there's no shame going out to France when they're the host nation.

    Make sure you do fella, I messed up on Monday by bizarrely turning down an 'early night offer' from the wife in favour of a beer and football....never, ever making that mistake again.
    Now put the phone down and run along, someone needs servicing ;)

    The Irish have unfinished business with France and Thierry Henry.

    The ego really did crash land...
    Think it'll be the same for him next season as well if he does end up at ManUre...

    I wonder if anyone in the BBC studio will bring that up during the game.

    Ronaldo: "Iceland have a small mentality, they'll do nothing."

    They've finished above Portugal.

    This is Iceland's biggest moment in European football since their volcano stopped Blackburn signing Robert Lewandowski in 2010.

    I've just started watching the Belgium game and noticed something really odd. When DeBruyne kicked off, he just passed the ball back straight back to Witsel who was stood on the centre circle line. Has the rule been changed now that you don't have to pass forwards from kick off ?

    SSN's chief football reporter, that haddock faced ****, just said Roy resting players worked out OK because we got Iceland. I couldn't believe my ears. Chief fucking football reporter. How the fuck he got that gig is beyond me, he must have an industrial sized dildo hidden in that moustache of his.

    Anyway, you beat me to it, we've found ourselves in the bastard half of the draw now and I half find myself actually hoping Iceland beat us on Monday just to be rid of that useless lump of excrement.

    Yup, totally agree.
    We've seen what we can do against teams who defend and sit deep so if we get through I'll honestly be surprised.

    Makes a mockery of those claiming before the tournament that it shouldn't have been expanded to 24 teams as the smaller nations wouldn't be good enough.

    Best thing they've done to the Euro's in memory.

    Portugal by finishing third actually ended up in the easier half of the draw
