Spain are obvious favorite to get first...
Although if they start off slow like in the world cup Italy could certainly cause an upset.
Otherwise, it is between Italy and Croatia for second. Its not that I think Croatia is much better than Ireland, just that the line up of matches favors Croatia. Croatia get to play Spain last which may allow them to play a Spanish side that is already in the quarter finals. Ireland will fight for their pride if they are out by then.
mise_me_Fein, I've never read posts by a person as biased as you. What did Italy do you ask? Well, they qualified as group winners in their group far in advance and also recently beat Spain in a friendly match.
On the other hand, Ireland barely made it out of their group, getting lucky against an Armenian team that probably would never challenge Spain or Italy. Then you received the easiest of all opponents in the playoffs. You are absurd my friend. Your logic seems to be based around the assumption that if you personally like a squad, they must be quality and deserve more than other quality sides.
What have Italy done? Well, what the hell have Ireland done?
