Group A Czech Republic Portugal Switzerland Turkey Group B Austria Croatia Germany Poland Group C France Netherlands Italy Romania Group D Greece Russia Spain Sweden The tournament starts on Saturday. Games are all taking place in either Switzerland or Austria. The winners of each group plus the runners up go forward into the last 16, when it will become a straight knockout tournament. The betting has Germany favourites at 4/1 , Spain 5/1, Italy 6/1, Portugal 8/1, Netherlands 12/1, Croatia 12/1 and Czech Rep 20/1. My Â£5, ($10), will be going on the Czechs. I can only assume the Germans are favourites due to the group they are in and are seen as certs to finish in the top 2, therefore going easily into the last 16. Italy and France will be there or thereabouts but the Dutch could upset one of them in that ' group of death'. No team qualified from the British Isles or Ireland.
