Wit the first qualifying matches played and a couple of surprising outcomes so far I think it's time to start a thread on this.
Link to UEFA.

Most groups already look a bit unexpected:
A: The Netherlands only 3rd with 6 points behind Czech Republic and Iceland (!) after having lost 2 out of 3 matches. Turkey being 6th and last with only 1 point.

B: Wales and Israel with 7 and 6 points, respectively while Belgium has only 4 and Bosnia only 2 points (at least I fnd that surprising)

C: Slowakia who beat Spain leading after 3 wins.

D: World Champion Germany only 3rd after losing 2:0 to Poland and a last minute draw against Ireland.

E: While England laeds after 3 wins Lithuania and Slovenia come in 2nd and 3rd with 6 points each. Switzerland, which I would have considered the 2nd strong team in that group only took 3 points from 3 matches and is currently 5th.

F: Greece 1 point!?

G: Ok, I didn't necessarily see Austria on the No. 1 spot but with 7 points compared to the 5 points Russia and Sweden have this is not really the most surprising group.

H: Croatia and Italy leading with 9 points each, folleowed by Norway (6) and Buldgaria). I guess the upcoming matches will be wwhat makes this group more interesting ...

I: This seemed to be a safe group for Portugal and Denmark but Portugal had to go to the 90th minute of their 2nd match to score for the first win ...
The Serbia-Albania match was abandoned after riots caused by an Albanian flag flown in hanging from a drone

They're solid, well-organised and workman-like. Middle tier, I'd say.

GWAANN ENGLAND!

England are looking sharp. Also the mascot is terrible.

I'm not going to say a thing about the result. Dear me, no.

I will, however, admit the English goal was a f**king beauty.

Also, well played, Wales! I can't wait for the game next week.

In other - more important - news, England smashed the Aussies at rugger, so all in all, a great day.

It was indeed. An undeserved tier but that's the sh*t that sometimes happens when you fail to make your second goal and the other team looks so like not having a chance to score at all ...

Looks like the Ukrainians are trying to avoid to leave such an impression. Very entertaining!

If England were to win their 1st game the tide of overconfindence would not only be unbearable but also counterproductive,

Oh man. Iceland are the plucky underdogs, and I them.

they also have the benefit of zero expectations, since this is their debut in the euros.

With Gylfi Sigurdsson they have chance to get points. At least from set-pieces

But jeeeebus, Ronaldo has been such a wanker about it.

Also well done N.Ireland. That was impressive.

Also, the England vs Wales game was fantastic.
