My actual team (Netherlands) didn't qualify so I'm definitely in. 

Unless I get Spain, I don't have it in me to root for Spain. :P

So uh, is anyone setting this up? I think our nation randomizer is currently occupied elsewhere. 

Also happy to randomize teams, if nobody else wants to do it.

I'm probably in.

Pretty excited for this.  This is the first year I've really followed football, and I think its actually become my favorite sport, which is something I never expected.

Also, anybody want to do a fantasy league?  The UEFA site is running one, and it looks to be pretty similar to what we used during the World Cup a couple of years ago.  I had a lot of fun with that, and would be up for playing again.

Sounds good. :)

I went ahead and did an initial random number generator, and this is what popped up from those who wanted to do this thus far. I will try and maintain an eye on this thread and add new people and break it own into teams of rooting interest later.

Haha, yes. I don't have time right now to change avatar/title, but I all I have to say that 2016 will be the rise of the Czechs. :fencing:A true Bohemian Rhapsody.

No Silvio the seducer? I suppose there's always Harry Redknapp. 

I'm in as well - I forgot that important bit in my previous posts.

Fate has handed me the jammy Italians.  The spirit of Schillaci will prevail.  Probably after a penalty shoot-out.

Normally, I'd celebrate, but considering the team I got, it would be more fitting to stay neutral and eat some chocolate while I count your money which you'll give to me and never tell anyone.

I´ll join but howdy´s current method is too random for team selection.

It´s a 24 team tournament but for the first batch of 26 participants we have 3x England and Italy with 2x Czech, Belgium, Romania, Switzerland and Germany while 7 teams got none.

The magic 8 ball heard your remarks and agrees. It gave you Ukraine. 

 I really did just draw this and the next pick randomly and two unrepresented teams came up. Usually, there is between 50-100 people who participate in this every two years. If, over the weekend, we don't see some support for Poland, Russia, Sweden, and Albania, we can address it.

In previous years people were assigned in batches to ensure even representation. Not a criicism, it's not like anyone actually takes this seriously, just a thought going forwards.
