Both of these teams have given really good accounts of themselves and can find themselves a bit unfortunate to only have 1 point between them.

Both teams could have a shot at qualifying in 3rd place in the group, so still all to play for, which is good. Romania could even pip Switzerland to 2nd should things fall their way. Almost more interested in this one because these 2 teams have done well, rather than the other 2 who have been poor.

Who's going to win?

#bbceuro2016 So Albania could finish 3rd, train for 3 days, and then be told they're going home? They should have just made it 32 teams

What a brilliant point, never thought about it that way. Albania could stick around for the next 3 days and then end up going home anyway. Interesting to see if thats the case.

Good performance from Albania, great scenes at the end.

Romania were a bit gash though, a lot of huffing and puffing but didn't offer much. Stanciu killed four or five promising attacks by going for glory from 30 yards out.

Well Romania are the first team to be going home, not watched the game so can't comment on performance but after 2 decent displays against France and Switzerland they'll be gutted not to take 3rd spot. However Albania have been impressive despite losing both games so fair play to them for getting the win, it's strange how they still don't know if it's going to be enough though, to be honest I don't think 3 points and a -2 goal difference will quite do it for them.

Yeah, they're fucked, which shows how flawed the format is.

Credit to Albania, finally got their rewards for their positivity after being cruelly undone by refereeing decisions against Switzerland and a late defeat against France.

Now they've got to sit and wait in their hotel, praying other results go their way to ensure they qualify for the last 16.

Just had a look at who England are looking most likely to get IF they win the group and it looks most likely to be Northern Ireland or Czech Republic, even if we finish runners up then we would most likely face Hungary.
