I figured I'd get the thread for Euro 2016 started a bit early (Matra gave me the idea), so that we're able to start discussing things, and hopefully give the soccer/football section a bit of a boost. As I did with the World Cup, once final rosters start coming out, I plan on giving an overview of roster and teams. With the tournament expanded this cycle, there will now be 24 teams participating in the finals, which give a boost to all-white teams in the competition. Teams like Northern Ireland, Iceland, and Wales are all participating in the tournament for the first time. Without the set roster, I'm going to assume teams like France, Switzerland, Portugal, Belgium, and Turkey, and England, will all have at least four non-white starters, and therefore, will be the teams we'll be primarily cheering against. The next "tier" if you will, is comprised of teams that will start anywhere from 8-10 whites. That tier will consist of teams like Germany, Austria, Wales, and probably Sweden and Ireland, as well as the Czech Republic if Selesie is still playing for them.... The rest of the teams should be all-white, or very close to it. Of course, there's Albania too, from looking through their team, and seeing a picture of their starting XI from eariler this year, they look to be this year's version of Bosnia: racially, nearly all-white, but of course, Muslim as well. I guess, cheer for them at your own choice. Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing them do well in a group that consists of France and Albania West (Switzerland). It should be an exciting tournament!! I'm excited for it to begin!!
