The Road to the EC 2012 - Poland & Ukraine

Quote:
So, we couldn't qualify for the WC 2010, which means our next big appointments are next September, when the campaign for the EC 2012 start. As our NT coach announced he will now take the time to find the players who can bring Belgium to the EC 2012 I thought a new thread would already be welcome !

EURO 2012
The 2012 UEFA European Football Championship, commonly referred to as Euro 2012, will be the 14th European Championship for national football teams sanctioned by UEFA. Poland and Ukraine will be the host nations of the final tournament, scheduled for mid-2012, following the selection of their joint bid by UEFA's Executive Committee, on 18 April 2007, in Cardiff, Wales. This bid defeated the other shortlisted bids from Italy and Croatia/Hungary, becoming the third successful joint-bid for the European Championship, after those of Belgium/Netherlands, for Euro 2000, and Austria/Switzerland for Euro 2008. This will be the last European Championship finals in which only 16 nations will participate, with Euro 2016 being the first European Championship finals with 24 competing nations.


Qualification
The UEFA Executive Committee has approved the procedure for the UEFA EURO 2012™ qualifying competition draw in Warsaw, Poland, on 7 February 2010. The procedure was given the green light at the committee's meeting in Nyon on Monday and Tuesday.

Fifty-one of the 53 UEFA member associations will take part in the qualifying draw, as the two UEFA EURO 2012™ host countries, Poland and Ukraine, qualify automatically for the final tournament.

The qualifying competition will comprise six groups of six teams (groups A-F) and three groups of five teams (groups G-I). Sides in each group will play one another on a home and away basis, with qualifying matches scheduled according to the international match calendar between September 2010 and November 2011. The nine winners and the best runner-up qualify directly for the final tournament. The eight remaining runners-up contest play-off matches.

For the draw, the 51 teams are allocated to six pots. Pots 1 to 5 contain nine sides each and Pot 6 will have six teams. The sides are classified on the basis of the UEFA national team rankings on completion of the qualifying games for the 2010 FIFA World Cup (last match to be played on 18 November). The reigning European champions (Spain) are seeded in Pot 1.

Bah, no thanks ... That would be hard to qualify.

In another case it would be great. I'm pretty sure the Koning Boudewijsstadiion would get demolished for free

Yeah, I think Belgium is gonna be a scary team to play in the next qualifiers now that Advocat is your Coach. Plus you got some really good young players like Hazard, Vermaelen and Felliani. And they all now have some NT experience. I really hope Croatia avoids you guys. But if we do draw you then.... you'd better be prepared.:smileani:

This will be the last Euro's with only 16 teams(which is just crazy to me, because 24 teams is just way too many teams for a continental competition), so I expect you guys to be going hard to get at least a second place finish.

So how do the qualifiers work?? There seem to be 47 teams, and 22 spots to earn, so almost half of the teams would qualify then?? I guess 8 groups of 6 teams which would mean all first 2 teams qualify and 6 best 3d placed teams???

Difficult group but it was expected since Belgium were in pot 4. Talentwise you can even compete for the first spot but realisticly it will be you and Turkey fighting for that play off spot.

An interesting and very exciting group. Let's not rule out the Austrians straight away though. They got some good results in the last qualifiers

A bit of an off-topic, but TomRSCA, where did you get these icons? I've been looking for something like that for a while now, but I couldn't find any. Could you please give me a link. :rollani:
