    brave but they still have quality - Griezmann I imagine will be first choice and Giroud is still a quality striker (not as good as Benzema though)

    How are France expecting to line up? Their winger options aren't too great if they play Griezmann in a central position

    Other than Payet and Martial who have both had brilliant seasons?

    I don't think its confirmed they'll play with out n out wingers. Can imagine them playing Payet in the LM/CAM position with Griezman RM/CAM with Giroud/Martial up top

    In the last 2 friendlies I watched, they played Payet left And Coman on the right for some of the game. With griezmann up top.

    Actually, in the 1st game the played Giroud up top with Griezmann on the right.

    We got into an argument after a night out

    He thinks Hazard is worth 9mil, Jesus Navas is better than Willian, we're losing our best CB and we will finish 5th at best as we are 3 years behind Arsenal.

    Oh and Giroud is better than Costa.

    I f*cking hate Arsenal fans.

    Giroud and Gignac in. Gameiro and Lacazette on standby. I guess the manager doesn't play UT.

    Doubt it unless they have found a few players who can pass to ronaldo

    It's a throw up this time imo

    None of the teams look that strong

    I expect Germany to win they have the best combo of quality and experience

    France look good but lots of young players with not a lot of major tournament experience and there will be a lot of pressure on them

    Belgium dark horses once again with de bruyne and hazard

    I think the addition of so many teams that normally wouldnt have been there leads me to believe that it will be much more of a crapshoot who wins than normal. Namely because the best teams have a far easier path to the knockouts, can likely rest players, and also gain a rhythm against "lesser" nations. Before it seemed that teams had to bring it straight away or one loss could do that team in.

    Will be interesting to see how it plays out. France has a great squad but I can look at 4 or 5 others and say the same. Plus there are certain teams that can be very hard to breakdown in one off games.
