Euro 2016

Russia grouped with Liechtenstein, Moldova, Montenegro, Austria and Sweden.

Should be pretty much straight forward to qualify from that group.

well Cdg is not a bad group and of course two teams qualify directly.

it is a group where almost any result can happen.

russia advantage is that it seems the team who have the strenght to lose less points at home.

but there is a huge problem:

russia played 3 home games at close doors.

Russia will qualify with ease, no way they don't finish in the top 2.

As for Portugal Klebsy, is it because hardly any Benfica players play for them you have said it is the worst team in 20 years?)

I'm sure I looked at a squad a couple of matches ago and I think it was just 1 Benfica player in the entire squad! Not like Zenit where we have 7-8 in the squad and a minimum of 5 normally starting, sometimes as many as 7 Zenit players on the pitch at the same time!

Kherzakov netted against Portugal so yes!

Kleber has already told us it is the worst Portugese team in 20 years (He only said this after Russia topped the group and was not saying this beforehand) but had no problems then turning himself inside out with say they got the semi-finals of the Euro's only losing to Spain and bigging the team back up again.

Portugal need Neto and without him they really struggle in defence, he has already turned down a move to Benfica and being made captain, he wants a move back to Portugal but only to one of the big 5 - Porto, Sporting Lisbon, Sporting Braga, Gumares and Maritimo.

No it's suspended, Kleber always make's a big drama out of everything negative to do with Russia, he is about as Anti Russia as you can get.

3 Matches behind closed doors will make no difference to Akinfeev and those 2 Donkey CB's who come with him from CSKA Moscow. There used to playing infront of crowds of 5600 courtesy of the CSKA Barmy Army, 5600 less is neither here nor there.

This is an awesome group. Russia thrashed Sweden once before and could do so again. But the quality of the Russian side isn't as good as it was back then so expect a fight in both legs, could easily see both teams splitting the pairs.

Moldova and Lichteinstein should be straight forward.

Montenegro could be dangerous if they happen to show up, you guys should at least get the home leg.

Austria has some talented players like Alaba, so they could easily take away a leg. Shouldn't underestimate them.

Worse comes to worse I see you guys in 3rd. But I don't see you guys landing 4th, you guys are much more consistent than other group teams. My prediction is Russia to place runners up (2nd).

Not worried at all. We managed to avoid all the spiteful ex-FSU countries.

With those 2 cumbersome CSKA Donkey Eeeee Orrr Eeee Orrr CB and a keeper who couldn't catch a bus if he arrived 30 minutes early aka Igor Icantmakeasaveav.

Anything is possible!

They are the weakest links of the Russia team, which team do they all play for again?

The ones with an army of fans.

The smallest army in the whole wide world.

I can't even remember the last time we even conceded 3 goals. Conceding 2 is very rare for us. And you think some Spartak **** will do it?
