Well certainly they are a very good team, but Germany, Spain and Portugal share their pot and they are the team you would want the most (even if indeed it is still a very difficult match).

I read in the Croatian media that Croatia play the best against the three teams in their pot! p Croatia never lost to Italy (5 matches) Sweden (3 matches) and Czech Republic (1 match)

So far Bilic has only stated he wants to avoid Portugal

Knowing Croatia's luck recently in draws and both club and NT level, watch them get a group with Netherlands, Portugal and France.

My ideal group for Croatia:
Austria
Croatia
Romania
Russia
1% chance of this happening though, Austria I think will be awful in this tournament, even they are hosts Croatia would still be the home team p Romania or Spain in Pot 3 would be fine, but more likely Romania and Russia from Pot 4 as we simply know about them from qualifiers

My group of death:

Holland
Italy
Portugal
France

Group of Life:

Austria
Czech Republic
Germany
Turkey

Croatia have a strong team and I'm confident against anybody, but the game is so competitive these days that we can easily lose to a weaker team.....but that doesn't include Austria, nobody in this tournament can possibly lose to them

If Greece is drawn in Group C, they will play all their games in Switzerland. If Greece is drawn in Group D, they will play all their games in Austria.

I think all Pot 1 teams will play all their division games in one city unlike their opponents who will have to travel more.

Time to get pumped:

Definitely

Sweden vs. Romania would be good stuff.

I wouldn't be surprised if they were drawn into the same group though.

It's pretty pathetic that the organising countries get the seeded spots. It's already good enough for NTs like Switzerland and Austria to qualify directly but they shouldn't get a double bonus simply because they don't have enough quality for it.

Well in some ways it bit them up the arse because they still dont avoid all the major countries really.
