France and Italy Get Screwed At European Championship Draw

How can the world champions not be a number one seed for the European Championships? How can UEFA seeded teams is a complete mystery and as a result Italy and France have to play each other again.

Drawn together in Group C with Holland and Romania, this is truly the “Group of Death” of this years Championship. The way the draw appears to be set-up, Groups A & B will winners and runners-up will play each other, with one team advancing to the final, while Groups C & D will do the same.

At this early stage the draw I am looking for a Portugal and Croatia semi-final in one bracket and I think that Italy and France will end up meeting on June 26th in Vienna with the winner going on to meet Portugal in the final.

Full Groups:

Group A:
Switzerland
Czech Republic
Portugal
Turkey

Group B:
Austria
Croatia
Germany
Poland

Group C:
Holland
Italy
Romania
France

Group D:
Greece
Sweden
Spain
Russia

The European Championships contains 16 of the top 18 teams in the world, Argentina and Brazil being the two teams missing and it promises to be a great final.
