  • Euro 2016: England Preview

    danbradley on 19 May at 10:47

    As always in the build up to a major football tournament, there is huge hype and interest about the England national team. While there is perhaps not so much expectation as in previous tournaments, when the ‘Golden Generation’ was at its best, this current crop of young stars has shown in this season’s Premier League that they have the ability to create history themselves. Much of England’s Euro 2016 chances will depend squarely on this inexperienced international team’s ability to perform at the highest level and handle the immense pressure that comes with wearing Three Lions on one’s shirt. England’s History in the Euros England have a poor record at the European Championships - failing to qualify on more occasions than they’ve reached the last eight. Their most famous performance was at home in ‘96, when agonisingly losing to Germany on…

  • Austria: Betting preview for Euro 2016

    Austria: Betting preview for Euro 2016 Coach Marcel Koller was employed at the start of October 2011, but his appointment was met with much ambivalence and disappointment having been out of the game for two years and having been sacked by Bochum, in his last role. Having now steered Austria to their most successful qualifying campaign since 1998 World Cup he has won the majority of doubters around. In 2009, after many years without qualification to a major finals tournament, the Austrian football federation embarked on ‘Projekt 12’, which selected the most promising players in the country between the ages of 15 and 21 and offered them specialised training in 12 academies across the breadth of Austria. That program has now started to bear the fruits of their labour as nine of the current squad are products of this…

  • Switzerland Best Bets for Euro 2016

    garethp1981 on 20 May at 22:00

    The Swiss national team, the “Nati” as it is often called in Switzerland should be reasonably familiar to anybody who watched England’s qualifying campaign for Euro 2016. The team finished second in that group behind England, who beat them 2-0 on both occasions that the two countries met. The Swiss still qualified reasonably easily, winning all of their other games except when being beaten 1-0 in Slovenia back in 2014. They won 21 points and finished with a reasonably healthy goal difference of +16. Managed by former Lazio manager Vladimir Petković and captained by Stephan Lichtsteiner of Juventus, the Swiss have a reputation for being solid defensively. In the 2006 World Cup they became the first team to be knocked out without conceding a single goal in normal time (they were knocked out on penalties) and they kept clean sheets…

  • Euro 2016 - Portugal Preview

    Ralfie1982 on 17 May at 15:42

    Euro 2016 Team Preview : Portugal A little step away from my regular Ralfie1982 Betting Blogs on CPFC, F1 and the golf as I venture over to France for Euro 2016 (not far for me as I live near Dover!). I was delighted when I was asked to preview Portugal and their chances here. How did Portugal progress to the finals When Portugal got beaten at home by Albania in the opening round of fixtures, (They always seem to be in their group don’t they?) you could be forgiven for thinking oh same old Portugal, however since that defeat it is worth noting they went on to win the next 7. Also Worth noting that they won their last three in that run of seven without CR7 scoring, maybe they are not the one man…
