A fairytale, 5000/1 to win the league, relegation bound, what more can be said about Leicester city’s outstanding triumph in the English Premier League. Athletico narrowly missed winning the Champions League by a whisker, via penalty shootout against the Real Madrid galacticos.
In a season and year across Europe painting colourful surprises – with players such as Marcus Rashford, Dimitry Payet, NGolo Kante, Saul, Fernando Torres, Jamie Vardy and many more taking the center stage at Club level to showcase something remarkable in the world of football. You can easily guess the Game of surprises doesn’t seems ready to be over yet.
Some teams head into euro 2016 as heavyweight favorites. They are like ‘Prince Lee ban Ji’ in the enticing Korean movie six flying dragons, who automatically prevails no matter how hard the oppositions are: either by hook or crook. Teams such as Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Belgium, England, Portugal, etc all stand a good chance of triumphing as already predicted by bookmakers.

By analysis, there are certain teams who stand a poor, poor, poor chance of reaching the semi finals, such as Albania, Ukraine, Slovakia, Romanian,and even Wales, etc. These teams cannot proceed to the final to lift this precious Golden trophy without feasting on the big sharks, the big boys of the tournament. Can any of these teams do it? It looks almost impossible; like expecting flood in the Kalahari desert.
But it’s a season and year of surprises. Remember the words of the deceased legend Mohammed Alli ‘there’s no such word as impossible’. Euro 2016 can as well complete a ‘one in a century wonder’ by producing one of the least expected teams – say Austria, as winner of the tournament. It doesn’t happen often, but don’t forget Greece in 2004.
We have to seat back and watch as things unfold.
