It was a very busy day in sports on Saturday, but somehow the soccer world graced us with its presence as the groups for this summer’s continent-hopping European Championship were revealed. As many had predicted, there was a substantial ‘Group of Death’ that came to fruition.
Germany, Portugal, and France will all contest Group F, making it one of the most dangerous groups in history. Elsewhere, England and Croatia will meet yet again, continuing a burgeoning rivalry of sorts. Four more teams are still going to clinch their spots in the Euros, so some of the ‘holes’ will be filled in the months ahead. The groups, luckily for the three mentioned, allow two automatic finishers this time around, while some of the third-place finishers will also advance. That gives them an ‘escape door’ of sorts just in case.
