Euro 2020
« on: November 15, 2019, 11:05:30 PM »
So starting to get the final line up.

Qualfied so far
England-shire
Czech Republic
Ukraine
Spain
Sweden
Poland
France
Turkey
Belgium
Russia
Italy
Finland (First ever major finals)

Possible teams for automatic qualification
Portugal or Serbia (Probably Portugal as they are away to Luxembourg in final game)
2 from (Netherlands, Germany or Northern Ireland)
2 from (Denmark, Switzerland or Rep. of Ireland)
2 from (Croatia, Hungary, Slovakia or Wales)
1 from (Austria, North Macedonia, Slovenia or Israel)

Current Playoff contendors
Group A: Iceland, 2 from (Bulgaria/Israel/Romania), 1 from (Wales/Slovakia/Republic of Ireland/Northern Ireland)
Group B: Bosnia and Herzegovina, 3 from (Wales/Slovakia/Republic of Ireland/Northern Ireland)
Group C: Scotland, Norway, Serbia, 1 from (Bulgaria/Israel/Romania)
Group D: Georgia, North Macedonia, Kosovo, Belarus

Teams in Bold are guaranteed a playoff spot

Some places will be determined by a random draw
At the moment Scotland and Norway are best ranked teams in group C so will have home draws in the semi finals. Have to say I'm hoping for Bulgaria in the Semis

Even as this reaches it's final stages, I still haven't a clue how the whole thing works.

No chance Scotland are beating the likes of Romania though.

2 x good goals by Scotland. Great strike from Cyprus. Huffing and puffing. Shite.

According to BBC if by some miracle Scotland qualify we would be put in the same group as England-shire and have to play them at wembley with the 2 other group games at hampden.

However there is some 'disclaimer' if Hungary or Romania end up in the group C playoffs which states the winner of the Group C would actually be put into two finals groups with the final group place being decided by a random draw. This is because there would be two host nations in the same play off group.

Same scenario seems to be possible in the Group A and B playoffs.

Playoff format not exactly kind to the fans given there is a 5 day gap between the semis and finals leading to some expensive travel for the 'away' nations

Draw for the play offs is Friday. Apparently we will know who we are playing and if we are at home or away for the final after that all though not quite sure even UEFA understand how this whole play off thing is going to work.

Let's face it.
Especially UEFA don't understand how the play offs are going to work.

I thought Hungary were out.
They certainly deserve to be after that performance last night.

We'd like to think so but I bet they give it to Iceland given they are the only Group A team not to qualify automatically.

St Petersburg stadium potentiually changed to Millenium Stadium rather than stockholm as the former has slightly larger capacity that the russian venue. Stockholm stadium would see 14000 seats per match lost

So Scotland v Israel in the semi of the play off and if we fluke our way past that one it is an away tie in Norway or Serbia...............then England at Wembley in the finals.

Could be a nice quiet all Irish affair in Belfast in one of the other play off finals.

Beat Israel in the nations league at Hampden so would like to think we will beat them again. Don’t think we have any chance of winning in either Oslo or Belgrade.

I thought we couldn’t play an opponent from our group again in the playoff?

From the moment UEFA announced this nonsense about 12 countries or whatever "sharing" the finals, Euro 2020 has been the most shambolic tournament in history.

If we are ever to qualify for a finals again it would be typical Scotland to make it to this one, which will undoubtedly be the worst one ever.
Can you blame the man for going out of his mind temporarily?
