Recently-minted world champions Germany will be back in the football stage as they face Scotland for the Euro 2016 qualifiers. Manager Joachim Low has said after their FIFA win that they want to emulate Spain's dominance who won the FIFA World Cup in 2010 and the European championships in 2012. They'll start this campaign against Scotland. Will it be a smooth win for them? Match is on September 8, 02:45 (GMT+8).
Romania's FIFA ambitions were easily crushed after they were beaten by Greece in the FIFA World Cup Qualifying play-offs. Romania succumbed to Pirate Ship last year via a 4-2 aggregate. The team will have a chance to avenge their foiled World Cup dream as they meet again for the Euro 2016 qualifiers. Greece had a good run during the World Cup. Will this extend to the Euro competition? Match is on September 08 at 02:45(GMT+8).
The past years were not kind to England. They finished fifth in Euro 2012 and didn't advance from the group stage of the 2014 World Cup. Redemption time for them starts against Switzerland, a team slowly making their way to the top. Despite failing to qualify in Euro 2012, the Swiss went on to have a good run during the 2014 World Cup. Match is on September 9 at 02:45 (GMT+8).
Czech Republic managed to reach Euro 2012 quarterfinals, while Netherlands only managed a group stage finish. Surprised? With the way things have gone over the past years, looks like there's a big chance the Netherlands-Czech Republic match outcome will be in favour of the Dutch. Netherlands came up short in Brazil this year, while Czech Republic failed to win in their three most recent matches. Match is on September 10 at 02:45 (GMT+8).
Italy had a miserable campaign in the 2014 World Cup despite being among the favourites after their runner-up finish in Euro 2012. Now, it's back to square one for them as they return to the football stage for Euro qualifiers against Norway. With some of their players at the twilight of their careers, Italy are hoping to have a great run again. Of course, Norway have other things in mind. Match is on September 10, 02:45(GMT+8).
