Group B is just too glamorous to be analyzed this early in the process and so in today’s edition of “Doing the Poznan” we will be invoking the Carlton Palmer in me and analyzing Group C.
The teams that make up Group C are:
Republic of Ireland
This is actually a pretty strong group if you look closely with holders Spain, former world champions Italy, last time’s quarter finalists Croatia and Giovanni Trappatoni’s Ireland. A dicey group which has the potential to upset one or even two of the biggies.
