It could have been another summer full of hope. We could have been sticking flags to our cars, painting our faces and enjoying a summer of football.
Unfortunately for us all, we'll not be able to watch the painstaking process of being knocked out of a big tournament - this time around, we haven't even qualified.
So, with England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland all missing from the 2008 European Championships, who will you be supporting?
The 16 teams to battle it out from June 7th, right up to the final in Vienna on June 29th, are as follows:
|Group A||Group B|
|Group C||Group D|
There's no shortage of great times, with France, Netherlands, Italy and Romania all locked into the "group of death". Surprise European champions, Greece, couldn't do it again, could they? Will Austria or Switzerland be able to make the most of their home advantage? Then there's Portugal and Spain, will the star-studded sides finally prove their worth? Not to mention the always impressive Germany.
