France, Portugal and Germany in the same pod. What kind of fucking idiotic system are they using this draw these groups?

Those games are in Budapest-- where I will be for the first week of the tourney.  I have tickets to one of the games but will have to check with my brother and see which one.

After Budapest, we're hitting Croatia, and then Greece.  Gonna be an epic trip.

Probably, but if Iceland makes it out of that path, they are no slouch, clearly the 4th team of that group, but would give any of those teams fits.

Both them and Bosnia & Herzegovina are outliers in the playoff path, in the rankings they are in the middle of teams already in the final tournament. Most of the teams in the playoff are either near the tail end or outside of those teams.

 

Here are the playoff paths:

Path A
Iceland v Romania
Bulgaria v Hungary

Path B
Bosnia & Herzegovina v Norther Ireland
Slovakia v Republic of Ireland

Path C
Scotland v Israel
Norway v Serbia

Path D
Georgia v Belarus
Northern Macedonia v Kosovo

 

Playoffs are a single elimination mini-bracket, semifinals and finals (1 leg each).
For these listings:
Semifinals: the host country is listed first
Finals: the host country will come from the semifinal listed first

I've got tickets for a Group D match in Glasgow - Croatia vs. the playoff winner (Scotland, Norway, Serbia, Israel) and tickets for a Round of 16 match in Blibao featuring the Group B winner - really hoping it's the Red Devils.

they could have fielded two different teams in the last WC and either/both could have at least made the semifinals if not won it all. CRAZY depth.

Germany is in rebuilding/reloading mode.  they were exposed in 2018.  relying on the same old players from the prior glory years.  not including Sane was criminal.  it's gonna be really interesting to see these youngsters on the big stage for the first time.  definitely talented, but most have less then 30 caps, and several in single digits or teens.

here's a projected lineup and then alternatives.

 At what point does Leno get his shot? He's been the best keeper in the EPL this year and has just been awesome for Arsenal since his arrival. If Auba isn't our best player then it's Leno. Fantastic shot stopper, and very calm/adept at playing out from the back. Definitely better than Cech and Szczesny when they were here. To me it's Neuer who should be the odd man out behind ter Stegen and Leno.
