Earlier this week it was decided by the Vital Fulham staff that to alleviate boredom and a lack of domestic football this summer that we`d focus on the forthcoming European Championships.
In a highly dubious decision, it was agreed that we`d focus our attention on Holland (blame orange_emu not me) this forthcoming summer.
Therefore, to set the ball rolling, we thought we`d do our first article (the first of many we hope) to alleviate the boredom as we face circa another 80 days before the 2008-2009 season starts.
As an introduction, we thought we`d simply look at the group Holland find themselves in this summer.
Unfortunately, Holland, guided by Marco Van Basten, find themselves competing in Group C, a group that has been labelled as The Group of Death!
It contains three other countries, two of which contested the last World Cup Final, in France and Italy as well as a very competitive Romania.
Upon hearing the draw Marco Van Basten simply remarked,
"It will be fun."
"We were already in the Group of Death at the World Cup so I don`t know what we`re going to call this one."
Whilst admitting that the French and Italians will provide formidable opposition, it shouldn`t be forgotten that in the qualifying matches Romania took four points off of the Dutch, therefore, it will take a huge task for the Dutch to qualify for the latter stages.
However, we here at Vital Fulham can`t wait for the action to start on Monday 9th June when Holland play Italy in the Stade de Suiss, Berne.
In our next article, we`ll take a closer look at the other three teams in the Dutch group and also how the Dutch qualified.
