My wife is half Danish so we have Denmark to follow as well as England,

My grandad was German coming to England when he was two,

That gives me another team to follow when England get knocked out,

I always want England to win whoever we play but apart from 66 always end up with Germany going further into the tournament than us.

Are you doing an England prediction game PP like your Town prediction thread ?

In Christian Ericksen Denmark have one hell of a player. Arguably the best technical player of all the players between England and Denmark

I remember when Denmark did not qualify for the Euro's but was put back in when Yugoslavia was at war,

They only went on to win it !!!!!!!!!!

Yes Ericksen is a very good player and they have some pretty useful ones most of the time,

I would like Town to sign one or two as they have plenty playing in Denmark that would be excellent for us in L2 and L1 and even the championship when we get there,

Les- We went to Plockton last year on your recommendation and had lunch at the Plockton hotel. Very nice place, very nice area.

Chris- Thanks for the heads up on Sutherland, looks good and so does Smoo cave. Not sure if we will get that far this year, but will probably get up there next year. We are doing different areas each time we visit, and try not to spread ourselves too thin.

Rick- Thanks for the heads up on the mag, but i doubt i will be watching many games to be honest. More likely to be buying guide books.

Denmark have an excellent player in Eriksen.
But they also have other useful players such as Delaney (just signed for Borussia Dortmund), Christensen at Chelsea and Kasper Schmeichel.
They are lacking a strong goalscorer, especially after the Danish petition to FIFA, to have the world cup delayed until Lord Bendtner recovered form his injury, was ignored!
I think they will be very hard to beat and could surprise a lot of teams.
As will England I hope!

Maybe we are fortunate not to be Spanish this morning. They just sacked Lopetegui.

Will they still get further than England? Interesting bet to ponder.

Very surprising to be honest . Saying that  the head of the Spanish FA claimed he was disappointed  at being told of the news late on of the  now ex boss  joining Real Madrid.Shame for them as he had been doing a good job.

I remember that I was at Bruce Springsteen concert in Stockholm and he announced that Sweden had beat England with 2-1 and that he wanted to play Glory Days. I also remember two Englishmen in the supermarket who would buy beer. One of them says: Look her fellow this is first class, we take that.
Class 1 is the beer that has the lowest alcoholic strength in Sweden. I did not say anything.

Good idea Pete.

I will do a free England prediction thread starting over the weekend which will hopefully go more than 3 games.

3 points for correct score after 90 mins in the group stages.
If we reach the knockout stage 3 points for correct score after 90 mins or if needed after extra time.

2 points for each exact correct England scorer.....examples....
If we score 3 goals and you predict exactly all 3 scorers only you get 6 points.
If we score 1 goal and you predict exactly that scorer only you get 2 points.
