Just realized....

Since the Euro went to a group stage format in 1980, only ONCE has the the World Cup runner-up from the World Cup prior advanced from the group stage in the Euro two years later (if the World Cup runner-up was from Europe)

1978: Holland fails to make it out of the 1980 group stage
1982: West Germany fails to make it out of the 1984 group stage
1986: West Germany makes the semifinals
1990: World Cup runner up (Argentina) was Not European, so N/A here
1994: Italy gets bounced in the group stages at Euro '96
1998: see 1990 (Brazil)
2002: Germany bounced in the Euro 2004 group stages
2006: France bounced out at the Euro 2008 Group stages
2010: Holland bounced out at the Euro 2012 group stages

So if the World Cup runner up in 2014 is from a UEFA nation, it does not bode well for them at Euro 2016

A Fark Handle: Lego_Addict: Wow your CR hatred is seething.

does anyone actually like the farking farkface anteater? he's like an international super-douchenozzle.

/like, not just think he's pretty or can kick a ball with some skill

I don't like his attitude at all but I don't hate him to the point that I'm going to place faults on him he doesn't have or is not responsible for. That doesn't make you better than him.

RminusQ: ScouserDuck: No stoppage time with 2 goals? Interesting.

No one gives a shiat about first-half stoppage time.

Tell that to the Greeks.

midpoint: LucklessWonder: Winner of Group B gets the Greeks in the quarters, and the runner-up has the Czechs, if I recall correctly. Germany-Greece might have bit of hostility between the fan bases... pation_of_Greece_during_World_Wa r_II

300,000 starved to death in Athens alone. From memory, I believe Greece was second only to Poland wrt proportion of populate killed.

He could have also been talking about Germany forcing Greece into austerity measures because the Greeks owe German banks a ton of money.
