I dunno, given the slim chance of surviving any Euro group anyway wouldn't you absolutely love taking on Germany, France and Portugal with anything a bonus?The new Euro qualifying method, with the Nations league wrapped in, makes the draw fiendishly complex. As a proper football statto - I love it!
What Sarge's graphic doesn't show is that if Romania qualify, they actually end up playing in Group C (because they're one of the hosts of that group), and the poor Nations League group D minnows (Kosovo/Macedonia/Belarus/Georgia) get flipped to Group F and will get the pleasure of facing Germany, France & Portugal in the group stage!
One final comment - when we were previously discussing the odd structure of the tourney - I said this - However whichever poor sods end up Runners Up in Group A, will have a 'fun' combo of having to play in Rome & Baku in the Groups Stages, followed by Amsterdam, followed by heading back to Baku!
Well, turns out - if all goes well for them - that could be Wales!
It's not that slim, though.I dunno, given the slim chance of surviving any Euro group anyway wouldn't you absolutely love taking on Germany, France and Portugal with anything a bonus?
