      Every tournament needs a "Group of Death" and it is the misfortune of Belgium, Italy, Sweden and the Republic of Ireland to be drawn in the Euro 2016 version. It means that at least one of three players – Eden Hazard, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Gianluigi Buffon – will not feature in the knock-out stages.

      Martin O'Neill's Irish team will have their work cut out to progress, but they will at least have Roy Keane on their side in what could be a fight to the death.

      Belgium: Odds 10-1

      Belgium are the best team in Europe and second in the world, according to Fifa, but they find themselves at longer odds than England to win Euro 2016 thanks to the competitiveness of Group E. A trip to the bookies may be in order though as Marc Wilmots has a squad that is bursting with talent, even without the injured Vincent Kompany.

      It is likely that if they get out of the group they will be installed as tournament favourites. Belgium got to the last eight at the 2014 World Cup but many thought they underachieved by not going further. Two years later a squad featuring the likes of Thibaut Courtois, Toby Alderweireld, Eden Hazard, Kevin de Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku will surely expect to make the last four.

      "They should finish first [in the group]. But they can't afford any more injuries," says ESPN.

      Italy: Odds 18-1

      Chelsea fans will be eager to see how their new manager Antonio Conte fares in France. But they are unlikely to see anything they haven't seen before. The Guardian calls Conte a "modern tinkerman" and says Italy will focus on their traditional strength – defence.

      They are no strangers to an early exit at major tournaments, notes ESPN. "They were the runners-up in 2012, but are not the force they once were, as two calamitous group stage exits from the last two World Cups prove. Italy scored only 16 goals in 10 games in qualifying and were obliterated by Germany in March."

      Getting out of the group and into the last eight would be "quite an achievement", says Eurosport, especially after the loss of midfielders Claudio Marchisio and Marco Verratti before the tournament.

      Sweden: 100-1

      They might have Zlatan Ibrahimovic but Sweden's odds reflect the fact that they do not have much else. While their stringy striker preens, the rest of the squad must rely on hard work and team spirit.

      Coach Erik Hamren "retains the public's sympathy because they recognise his resources of quality are not what they once were," says the Daily Telegraph. "Nine battlers and an ageing genius is hardly innovative or sustainable but it did put Sweden through the play-offs."

      Sweden's Under-21 side won the age group tournament last season, but this is a big step up for the graduates of that side. "Ibrahimovic is so vital to the side's success that it will literally come down to how well he performs as to whether they qualify from Group E or not," says website Britwatch Sports.

      Republic of Ireland: Odds 150-1

      The dark horses of the group, primarily because they lack a superstar or two, Martin O'Neill's side will be well-drilled and hard to beat, and could spring a surprise.

      Euro 2012 was a disaster for the Irish and assistant boss Roy Keane in particular will want to avoid the impression the Irish are only in France for another "sing song", after his angry rant four years ago.

      He may well get his wish. "There will be no harder-working side than Martin O'Neill's during this tournament but they have a sprinkling of genuine quality too and certainly do not lack experience," says Eurosport. "Qualification for the last 16 will be difficult in a tight Group E but they have the capacity to pull off the one big result that could see them through."

      The key players:
      If the E in Group E is for ego then there is no doubt that Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic would top the table. He has little competition from within his own squad, or that of Ireland, although Wes Hoolahan could make an impression.

      Italy are also short of stars, with Napoli hero Lorenzo Insigne probably the biggest draw among the outfield players. The daddy of the squad, though, remains 38-year-old Gianluigi Buffon.

      Belgium bring the glamour to Group E however. Eden Hazard and Kevin de Bruyne will be battling for top billing in the side, but if he brings his scoring boots Romelu Lukaku could do his reputation a power of good, and that could leave Everton tempted to cash in on their star striker.

      If can keep Ibra quiet, think Ireland can at least get the draw.
      O'Shea will start. So between Clark, Duffy and Keogh for other CB spot - I reckon it'll be Keogh, old fashioned 'tackle, head, kick' CB ... try match Ibra physically.
      Don't think Hoolahan will start, would like him to personally, but reckon O'Neill will go for the 'keep it tight' approach, at least for first 60mins. And see how things look.  If Wes doesn't start, it'll probably be scrappy as hell, Ireland will find it hard to keep possession, and look to set pieces/free kicks as opportunities.
      Walters will probably start to even though has been having injury probs ... at least have Shane Long is fit and in form, best chance of a goal from open play... http://www.joe.ie/sport/video-ireland-fans-have-stolen-will-greigs-on-fire-for-themselves/548765 :)
      Won't be in Paris tonight, but will be in Bordeaux on Saturday.. can't wait ...

      Italy highlighting the importance tonight of a good defence.

      Picked them off at the end, just like Germany last night.

      Yep. Italy, France and Germany catching my eye so far.

      Belgium just look like they don't gel enough. Everything seems forced so to speak.

      Posers team belgium. Always fail in these tournaments. Italy are the bigger team and theres still winners in their squad.

      Juventus back 3 and goalkeeper. Gonna have a big say in this tournament I feel.

      Superb performance by the Italians. Why do people right them off?!

      Belgium showing how overrated and dull they are yet again. Perhaps it's only in Belgium and England that this nation is overrated?

      Also Italy are not arsed about being cynical tw*ts. Some quite funny yellow cards being picked up in that second half.

      I know a few countries that would let players past once they are beaten. Not the Italians.

      18/1 at the start of the tournament with Juves starting back 3 and goalkeeper. They are a threat no doubt in the competition.

      Never write the Italians off.

      Always there or thereabouts. Could see them doing anybody I've seen so far besides, maybe, the Germans.

      Enjoying the tournament so far. Doesn't feel as overwhelming as a World Cup so it's a bit easier to keep your eye on everything that's going on.

      How have we been poor? How many teams have managed to break down teams that have parked the bus? Germany couldn't do it against Poland, France got lucky twice against Romania and Albania, Portugal failed against Iceland, ... Only Spain did it.

      It's hard playing against teams that just refuse to play football. I agree it's not the best football we've seen at the Euros, but how many great games have we seen? Not too many. We're doing what we're supposed to do, be patient and the goal will come. That goal was Lukaku at his best, everyone knows he is sh*te when being playing in a team that dominates games, but he is deadly on the counter-attack.

      Thought the Irish did a decent job of defending until Belgian's scored. Similar to the Turks vs the Spaniards when they went a goal down, they just lost that desire and belief. Quite surprised at this as I expected more of a fighting spirit from the Irish.

      Belgium were poor in the first game and first half of the second game. They were good in the second half of the second game. Poland did not park the bus against Germany. Poland could have won that game easily. France deserved to win their game. Iceland got lucky and Spain have been quality. Belgium had a good 45 minutes in the second half and the score line reflected that.

      Can't believe nobodies in here talking about the ROI game.

      I detest Italian football, so slow and laboured but they hate it when teams get in their faces like ROI are tonight.  It's going to be epic with Conte in the PL next season, he's going to hate how teams play.

      ROI should have had at least 2 penalties, blatant ones and how none of the officials gave them I've no idea.  Anyway it's a great game so let's hope ROI can get something and go through.

      If ROI make it through. It is great! Hope they can get revenge against France and we can have England v ROI. If ROI get through, I think they can beat France. They were lacking an end product but quality last 10 minutes.

      I've just watched that episode 9 of Game of Thrones and then stuck that game on at 80 minutes. I'm f**king TV knackered.

      Martin O'Neill celebrating early.
      Because the Referee blew the whistle for a free kick he thought it was the final whistle.

      It is great. Just a shame Scotland didn't get in there. I think 4/5 is still amazing.

      Yes, just thinking that, all (qualified) Home Nations plus ROI into the last 16, Marvellous.

      Looks like Scotland got their independence after all.

      I'm exhausted watching today's games :D Awesome stuff.

      Very happy for Ireland (except for McLean the turd). Thought they bottled it with the Hoolahan chance but what a ball in from him moments later and Brady got a deserved winner. Brilliant.

      Well done ROI even though Conte did you a favour by picking his second team, who looked like they would struggle against my 5 a side team.

      Looking at ROI they play a similar game to England. A lot of possession without end product.

      Enough end product tonight.

      Was in Bordeaux for the defeat to Belgium and tbh didn't think we'd come back from it. We were so poor in that second half, paid them way to much respect. Massive credit to O'Neill though, he made 4 changes for the game last night, starting 2 new CBs, McClean and Murphy - that could've backfired, and he would've got it in the neck - but they all did well and the team got stuck in from the start. Stonewall peno against McClean in first half not given, f**king disgraceful refereeing, the fuckwit was looking right at it :(  And when Wes missed that sitter from 8 yards, thought that was it. Excellent cross though from him for Brady moments later, who was brave, kept his eye on the ball, never checked on the keeper, and nodded home. Cue f**king crazyiness :)
      Boy do we owe the frogs, we play same way, get stuck in and make it uncomfortable, have a chance. Italy deffo did us a favour by playing the b-team, but after the cheating git Henry's handball did us over before, how good would it be to stick it to them in their own f**king backyard. Can't wait...

      I had no idea who Liam Brady was until I Googled him, I thought you'd unearthed a gem that I'd never heard of.

      I didn't know until yesterday that Robbie had been at United until 2013.

      Liam Brady was a great midfielder for Arsenal.

      Irish may have deserved the win, but that's not saying a lot considering Italy had no interest in that match at all.

      Ireland are fortunate that they played Italy in the final game.
