I think Czech will top the group. my heart tells me that Turkey will cause an upset and advance, but my common sense tells me Portugal. I hope my common sense is wrong p

Is it true that if you don't use it, you lose it?

I figure the host nation advances...and since the Austrians won't...the Swiss will....

The Czechs and Portugal. However I want the Swiss to go through to make the tournament interesting from a local point of view.

Me too. The Czechs were already past their prime at the WC and Swiss have a decent side and home advantage.

Don't know what to expect from the Turks. They have been away for 4 years now.

We have unfinished business with the Swiss and they are certainly not a better team than us in any way. I am sure we will have more fans in the stadiums than any of the teams we face especially against the Swiss

It would be safe to say Portugal and the Czechs... but the Swiss are home and didn't do too badly at the WC.. I wouldn't be surprised if one of the two favorites gave way to the Swiss.

the switzerland-turkey match will be the one to watch...last time they played there was alot of crowd problems and a huge fight broke out between the players...with that being said the turkish fans will be in full force as well..it'll be as if they're playing in istanbul so home advantage won't make all that much difference...as far as advancing goes i would say portugal and turkey and the czech depending on the fitness of koller...but most probably turkey and portugal to qualify..but it is a wide open group though

Marouane Chamakh is the truth..hold it down in bordeaux

Yeah there is no longer Nedved, Poborsky and Smicer but there are some new younger players that can play well as a unit. Czechs are not the same side they used to be 4 yrs ago but if they stay healthy and play as a unit (as in 3-0 drubbing of Germany) then anything is possible. I am counting on your former Ajax boy, Grygera to make some big contributions
