Can a mod kindly reorder the order of the teams in the title? That's gonna annoy me FFS

Remember a 0-0 horror show between these two at Euro 2008

Hopefully more entertaining than that.

EDIT: removed video which I now realise was a 0-0 horror show from Euro 2012 qualifying

I think France will win. It's the opening game, so they'll huff and puff for a while, but they have a really excellent squad, and I think they'll have enough to break through an organised Romania. Going for 2-0, with both goals in the last 20 minutes. If I'm going for goalscorer predictions it's Giroud and Pogba.

Hope not, got an accy on BTTS and this game is in it!

I've also got Griezmann first to score and Stanciu to score within the 90'.

If it will annoy you so much, then why did you do it?

Was in a rush to do it on the way to work. Thanks to whoever did it, guessing Barside.

1 full month of international football. I'm excited! Really looking forward to the start of the tournament this evening. France should win this one easily. But IRC France has a pretty bad record with opening games haven't they?

Can see this being a slow start, maybe 1-0 or 2-0 to France late on, goals to come in the last half hour or so

7.15pm on ITV, kickoff at 8pm. Assume from that cursory build up that they won't do justice to the coverage of the opening ceremony.

If France scores early, then it's gonna be a slaughter.

If not, 1-0.

I can't really see Romania taking anything from this game.

This gives moaners an early opportunity to whine about ITV giving you updates from the England camp

In theory, I guess with 3rd placed going through in most groups you'd think games could be more open as less risk of missing out but I somehow doubt it

2-0 France with talk of them 'will take a lot of beating' before they lose their next game during the week

Could also go the other way, if teams get a point in the first match they'll feel they are almost through so we could see some negative early games, particularly those between bigger nations in a group.

I can't wait, competitive European football \o/

I also see a low scoring game with France winning to nil, 1-0 is my fancy but 2-0 wouldn't surprise me.

Do team sheets need to be in an hour before kick-off?

I'm really really excited for this all to start now. I fully expect this to be a 0-0 bore though :D

Reckon France will roll them over 4 or 5 - 0.

Giroud hat trick

Fascinating! Origin of the word Hat-Trick:

The term first appeared in 1858 in cricket, to describe HH Stephenson's taking three wickets with three consecutive deliveries. Fans held a collection for Stephenson, and presented him with a hat bought with the proceeds.[1] The term was used in print for the first time in 1868.[2] The term was eventually adopted by many other sports including hockey, association football, water polo and team handball.

Are Payet, Martial & Giroud all likely to start?

I haven't seen much of France lately but can't see those 3 and Griezmann all starting (would surely be too attacking) and I am eager to place a scorecast not involving Griezmann.

Sounds like it'll be:

Lloris



Sagna Rami Koscielny Evra

Pogba Kante Matuidi

Griezmann Giroud Payet

That looks a good line up, I expect Giroud to start as well so will put him in a scorecast, cheers mate.

Is it true Romania have a good defense? Could be a 0-0 or a 1-0 upset.

Hard to gauge really. Conceded just twice in qualifying, but that was in a group where Northern Ireland were the clear top scorers. Shipped four to Ukraine in a warm-up friendly just two weeks ago, but also kept Spain scoreless in March.

I think Lassana Diarra might have had the place ahead of him, but he got injured. Just my feeling though

Also, Marion Bartoli :lol:

She made this big thing about ITV having the Euros coverage on their last bit of French Open programming, and I joked (not on here) that she sounded desperate to do some presenting for it. Heh

Romania used to be amazing. Back in 94 they were one of the best teams to watch, their win over Argentina was one of the great games of the tournament.

Hagi, a genius..... yet all I hear now is how they are setup to frustrate. :(

Bring back communism, it created some great talents.

Well this is a bit ****

Do the people who arrange the ceremonies for these things not take into account that the majority of the audience both in the crowd and watching at home are blokes? :D
