This year, the championship series began on June 12 and will run until July 4.

 First round to the Czechs
They managed just one good half of attacking football in the 1-1 draw with Sweden, had Francesco Totti banned for three games for spitting at Denmark's Christian Poulsen and sulked with the media.
Sweden were among the revelations, especially with their spectacular 5-0 demolition of Bulgaria, while Denmark's short-passing game made them the nearest thing to a South American team in at the Championship.
The record books will probably be unkind to Bulgaria, who were the only team to go home without a point, but they did not play that badly apart from a disastrous second half against Sweden when they conceded four goals.
