    I don't see Ireland advancing, as much as I'd like to see them go through.

    You never know...............Italy could fall on their face, it's possible.

    It's mission impossible. Croatia and Ireland both know they have to win when they play each other. A draw won't do either of us any good. Historically, Italy start slow, which means Ireland will play them when they most need to win. If Ireland beat Croatia and lose/draw with Spain then a draw with Italy would see them through, maybe.

    My favourite part, which I hate the most, is trying to figure out how this will all play out.

    At this level nothing is impossible.

    We'll beat them each 20-0. Ireland will kick ass all over the place.

    Only 1 point for Croatia?:D We played 5 matches against Italy since our independence and we have never lost, against Spain we played only friendly matches. We dont know what to expect against Ireland, but this is extremely important match for Croatia. If we lose here, its hard to expect better performance against Spain, but we like to play against Italy and Germany, their style is good for us, easy to handle, we dont like to run, we use more technical skills and we have height advantage. Hoping that you will have good time in watching EURO, good luck.:)

    Croatian coach Slaven Bilic has discovered his lineup against Ireland.:) Dejan Lovren (Lyon) is injured. Maybe he wants to hide his lineup, its early I think.
