    FAQs

    Q: What timezone are you using?
    A: All Times are in British Summer Time (BST) which is UTC+1.

    Q: What's all this third placed stuff?
    A: For those of you too young to remember USA 94, this is what happens when money wins out over common sense. In short, the group winners, runner-ups and four best third placed teams all qualify for the knockout stages.

    Q: You mean they play 36 Games to only eliminate 8 teams?
    A: Yes.

    Q: That's pretty dumb.
    A: Yup

    Q: So what does that mean for the tournament?
    A: In short, the winners of groups A, B, C and D will play a third-placed team. The team they play will depend upon which groups have a third-placed team qualify. You can see the possible permutations here if you're interested.

    Q: I saw the format on another website, some of your games appear out of order.
    A: I've listed the games chronologically in order to help people see what they should be watching on TV. In some instances the game I call Second Round 3 is listed before Second Round 2, despite taking place after the other. This is mostly done where the knockout stages are shown in a tree format. If you follow the guide above you won't miss a game.

    the way the format is now, the group stages are just about a waste of time

    Draw is live here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/football/34473469

    Two England group games kicking off at 8pm, not bad.

    - - - Updated - - -

    So if England win their group they'll play the third placed team from group A, C or D. Not too many good teams in those groups. If we finish second we'll play the runner up in Group F. Nothing tricky there, either.
    Did you like the above post? How about sending me a dollar? I'd have adverts here but apparently that'd break ToS.

    D looks pretty strong. I'd say the third place team there, whoever it is, would be tougher than the 2nd placed team from group F

    Awesome draw for Portugal, 9 points easy.

    Group E is a killer. If you finish runner up you'll likely play Portugal as your reward. Oh, but then there's a chance you'll get England in the quarter finals so swings and roundabouts I guess.

    I like Belgium being in the group of death. Hopefully they'll show what class they have and come top of the group.

    with how many teams qualify for the knockout rounds, there isn't a group of "death"

    >>Republic of Ireland
    >>Sweden

    >>Group of death

    Oh come on

    All groups are pretty much equally strong/weak. To the point I doubt its actually random

    Gonna have to disagree there. France and Portugal's groups are clearly weaker than everyone elses

    In some groups you have one strong, three weak and in some others two strong, two weak teams.

    The groups where you only have one strong team is actually preferable, because it means you have a chance to get 2nd despite being shit in reality.

    A death group is three strong teams, and one weak team that's basically just fodder. As such, the only death group I see is D, with Croatia, Turkey and Spain.

    As a Spaniard, I'm not too worried about our group. The biggest concern I have is Del Bosque calling up and playing players such as Diego Costa.

    I wouldn't be so sure. You know our players, they play better in groups of death than in "easy groups". And the gap between all teams, it's getting less noticeable each year. There's no longer that thing of the top 10 in the rank always beating the others.
