European Football Championships Kick Off
By Staff
Group A of Euro 2008 began to take shape last weekend as Germany soundly beat neighbouring country Poland 2-0 and Croatia took a comfortable 1-0 win from co-hosts Austria.

Ironically, it was Polish-born Lukas Podolski who netted both goals for Germany against his country of birth; the first a well-slotted shot into an open goal and the second a powerful volley following a fumbled shot from striker Klose.

Croatia enjoyed an excellently-played first half against Austria which saw new Tottenham Hotspurs signing Luka Modric net a penalty to take the lead.

Tonight sees a clash of the giants as world champions Italy face a quality Netherlands side in the first of their group matches. Italy are currently 6/4 with the Dutch at 22/9. A not-unreasonable draw is 21/10. These odds come from a variety of bookmakers, so be sure to check a site such as OddsChecker to find the best bets.

Also tonight, France face decided underdogs Romania, who are 22/5 for a win if you’re feeling frisky. The rather safer bet of France to win comes at 5/6.
