We think alike. Good thread to start
My wish, given what I think about the teams:
Northern Ireland (we know them at least)
My wish given historical results:
England (our sparring partners at final tournaments)
Wales (thanks for WC94)
My fear given what I think about the teams:
For historical reasons:
France (have we ever beaten them?)
Croatia (they always beat us)
Turkey (tend to do well when they qualify)
My thoughts: probably a hard group again. That tends to happen.
I think it's ideal to avoid Turkey from pot 4. We saw they played their hearts out. Pot 2... I don't even know. They're all at about the same level. Pot 1, let's avoid France (being hosts), Germany and Spain.
