I have Wales in the sweepstake at work (story of my life).

Gareth to majestically carry the whole team single handedly, scoring a goal record for the history of the tournament, so swooping Wales to a shocking final with Portugal, that sees Gareth and Ronaldo have a punch up (with hair pulling) and Wales to win it Greek-esque stylee (not the story of my life)

I've got more chance of a candlelit dinner with you in New York, than the above happening.

Spain to win. France in the final.

I say this with out checking the groups or fixtures closely.

Germany to the semi's.

If England get to the semi's I'll be delighted. Especially if Harry Kane wins the golden boot.

I expect one of these noddy teams like Northern Ireland or Wales who've qualified by virtue of the tournament expanding to over deliver, reach the quarters, beat England or someone else considered 'big' and the world to start asking if they're Leicester in disguise.

Or something like that.

I fancy Belgium to get to at least the semis, maybe the final if all their best players are on form.

England *should* make it out of the group, how far they get after that depends on who they play.

You have to feel sorry for Townsend and Drinkwater for missing the cut considering Henderson, Wilshere and Sturridge made the squad and they are crocked and shite.

Rashford's in - I'm surprised. Could be a decent player off the bench - if he gets a game.
