Ireland, of course. So, trust me (and the fire oracle) and place your bets. How I know that will happen? Simple: I went at a friend’s birthday party two days ago, took some fire pictures and before everyone I asked the oracle about their prediction. At first all six games of the Ireland group C, then the outcome of the three other groups, the four quarters, the two semis and finally the final game. That’s 16 games and so 16 pictures in total. Because I don’t want that you say I’ve cheated I show you the very pictures with the interpretation of the fire oracle guru (i.e. me, as I am very keen in Zoroastrism):

SPAIN 2-1 ITALY

A very low game with both teams almost neutralizing each other before Spain will come to power late in the second half.

IRELAND 1-0 CROATIA

Most of the game will happen around the centre circle and Ireland wins through a Croatia own goal.

ITALY 1-1 CROATIA

There will be some fist fights and at least one sending off as a result. In the end it’s a well-deserved draw.

SPAIN 2-1 IRELAND

Clear to see that it will be a game towards one goal but I can also recognize McGeady getting a penalty for a very obvious dive: a very welcome first goal for Robbie Keane. But in the end Spain will get the three points — how else could be the outcome with 20-2 shots on goal?

CROATIA 1-3 SPAIN

Croatia will get the lead because of one single opportunity in the first half but Spain will strike back through a Fernando Torres hat-trick.

ITALY 0-2 IRELAND

Italy will begin the game brightly… for the first five minutes. Then Ireland dominates more and more with leading 1-0 at half time and 2-0 in the end.

Group A outcome

Very open group with tiny surprises. In the end Russia will top the group with three strong games with the Czech Republic only just reach the quarter finals:

Group B outcome

The Danes will be eaten here by everyone: nil points to them. Germany will go top but only just. Portugal right behind:

Group D outcome

There is one country who will stand out in this group and surprisingly it will be England. They will top the group with maximum points. Sweden and Ukraine will fight out the second place with Ukraine with the better ending.

RUSSIA 3-1 PORTUGAL

Portugal needs to defend upon their lifes but will get punished on several occassions. Cristiano Ronaldo again can’t tranfer his club strengths to his country duties and his teammates will be helpless against a very strong Russian team.

GERMANY 1-0 CZECH REPUBLIC

One man certainly stands out in this game and it will be Petr Cech. It’s a one-man show really but with the better end for Germany.

SPAIN 3-0 UKRAINE

I don’t really need to translate this picture for you because you will recognize the bull fighting his opponent. That means Spain will win easily.

ENGLAND 1-2 IRELAND

Also here: very easy to see: Do you see the shamrock in the upper flame? Yes, exactly! That means that Ireland will win against a very unstructured and disharmonied England team.

RUSSIA 1-2 SPAIN

The bull here is smaller so Spain will be a bit low in this game but can just overcome to reach the final.

GERMANY 1-1 IRELAND (3-4 pens)

Game surprisingly will be very equal and in the end decided through penalties. And even more surprisingly Germany will lose it.

SPAIN 0-1 IRELAND

Damien Duff will have his great day today because he will get the winner in the dying minutes of the game that makes Ireland the champion.
