Don't think this has been mentioned before, I'd not heard anything about it until I did a search just now (even though they were announced a couple of months ago). Looks like it could be a tough one this time around. A group with England, Italy, Denmark, Ireland and 3 others in would be pretty horrific.

 

(6 groups of 7, 1 group of 8. Winners and runners-up of each go to the finals).

When is the draw for the Euro 2008 qualifying groups?

 

Also Im sick of all these stupid pots, this aint a kitchen. They should just have a free for all draw, where England can play anyone, and not selected teams from different pots etc.

 

 

Because having all the top nations draw each other in the qualifying rounds and knock each other out before they set foot in Austria and switzerland would be sure way to get the sponsors in would'nt it.

27th January.

 

And I agree to an extent, there is too much emphasis on seeding in tournaments these days, bordering on legalised fixing at times.

Seeding is essential really, everyone would be pissed if it wasn't and one grouo contained England, France, Italy, Holland, Spain, Germany and Portugal then another contained all the crap teams like Faroe Islands, San Marino, Liechenstein, Malta, Luxemborg, Kazakstan and Scotland.
