Euro 2016

I really can’t complain about the results of the draw (full results here) because Austria’s pool is reasonable.  They’re in group G so that’s Russia, Sweden, Austria, Montenegro, Moldova and Liechtenstein.  Third should be do-able.

But I wondered what the the groups would look like if they’d gone by the FIFA rankings.

Group A Group B Group C Group D Group E Group F Group G Group H Group I
Spain Germany Portugal Switzerland Italy Netherlands Belgium Greece England
Serbia Slovenia Sweden Russia Denmark France Ukraine Bosnia-Herzegovina Croatia
Armenia Czech Republic Romania Scotland Turkey Austria Hungary Iceland Wales
Bulgaria Poland Republic of Ireland Finland Norway Israel Albania Slovakia Montenegro
Belarus Macedonia Northern Ireland Estonia Azerbaijan Lithuania Georgia Moldova Latvia
Gibraltar San Marino Andorra Faroe Islands Lichtenstein Malta Kazakhstan Cyprus Luxembourg

I, personally, prefer the random draw 🙂  I couldn’t imagine why.  (Also I appear to have added a country somewhere)
