Holland are awesome when they play as a team
Spain are potentially even more frightening
Both teams, however, are just as capable of being hopeless, and in a cup format, probably neither will win
Especially Spain, who for all their great attacking talent, were poor defensively
Austria, Switzerland and Greece are the worst top seeds in tournament history
Germany are an efficient, well oiled machine, and are deservedly favourites
England were hopeless under McLaren – Croatia look average, Russia awful
Slaven Bilic is a talented and entertaining coach, though
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is world class, so why is he rubbish so often?
Raymond Domenech is a hopeless tactician – two defensive midfielders against a ‘park the bus’ side?
Italy’s defence is pretty woeful without Cannavaro
Freddie Ljungberg is fit again. West Ham fans must be confused to see him run so much
No-one understands the offside rule anymore
If you’ve got an attacking set piece against Holland, be very afraid
Outside Group C, this tournament won’t get going until the knockout stages
