    I've decided not to get involved with individual games. I've got a budget of £1,500 for the tournament and hope to make a 33% profit i.e. £500.

    I always like to watch each team once before getting too involved so what I've done is layed 4 teams that I "know" won't win the tournament and will find others to back/lay once I've seen everyone play.

    My bets so far are
    £80 lay of Italy @ 18.5/1
    £68 lay of Portugal @ 22/1
    £17 lay of Wales @ 92/1
    £12 lay of Sweden @ 130/1

    I have layed a little of England and Germany and backed a little on Poland and Croatia and that has left this..............................

    France +£203
    Germany +£63
    Spain +£203
    England +£67
    Belgium +£203
    Portugal -£1361
    Italy -£1367

    Croatia +£377
    Austria +£203
    Poland +£504
    Switzerland +£203
    Wales -£1387
    Sweden -£1357

    ALL OTHER TEAMS +£203

    As the tournament progresses I expect to lay more teams until I am only on 2 or 3 teams with a potential profit of £500. Fingers crossed.

    4 bets for me so far for a small bit of fun.

    40 win on Croatia@33-1
    30 win on Griezman@13 golden boot.
    20 win on Richard Keogh to be Ireland's top goalscorer at 25-1.

    20 on Alli to receive the most bookings for England at 13-2.
    Fair play to Sky bet for giving me odds on that market which I requested.

    Which bookie Leo? The prices ye got on Croatia and Griezman look very good but the price on Keogh is piss-poor. Having said that.............Thanks for the tip because I reckon that's an inspired selection. Given that Ireland won't score too many goals (maybe 1 or 2) there's every chance Keogh (who is long overdue a goal and has won me lots over the years with his goals) can get one and at least tie for top goalscorer.

    On Betfair he's 40/1 but I've been cheeky and have looked for someone to lay him @ 70/1. If nobody takes the bet I'll stick £10 on at 40's.

    On the NY Liverpool fans' page on Facebook an Irish fella's posted this:

    "I see England are 8/1 to win the Euros.

    For those of you not familiar with betting or wagering this means that, if you bet £20 on England at 8/1, you lose £20."

    Cheeky get.  :D

    Unlucky Art, I don't suppose you had a chance to cash out did you?

    I don't like the look of the German team (relatively speaking) but rather than lay them further I've put £5 on Ukraine to win the tournament @ 130/1, so my Ukraine bet is now @ +£853

    I've backed to win the tournament ( with the view of cashing out)

    Swiss
    Poland
    Austria

    Player of the tournament

    Modric
    Pogba
    Martial

    Top scorer

    Embolo
    Lukaku
    Griezman

    Top England scorer

    Rooney 7/2

    And my favourite and im banking on this to come in to cover the above losses:

    A hatrick scored @ 4/7

    I also layed Slovakia (after they lost to Wales), £5 @ 310/1. My overall position is similar to the last update apart from I'm +£853 on Ukraine and now -£1347 on Slovakia.

    That kid Embolo looked excellent when he came on, very surprised he didn't start the game. The price on the hatrick looks very good, I'd be surprised if there wasn't one.

    He was 150/1 when I backed him.

    I liked it mate. I figure it's got to happen in the group games/ last sixteen (games should be to tight after that).

    Well I've seen every team once now and am still none the wiser. Normally I'd start betting on individual games now but I'm gonna keep my powder dry a bit longer. I have a slight fancy for Russia to beat Slovakia.............I'll guess 2-1.

    I flew to Geneva on Thursday (to be picked up by 3 Czech friends, who were driving from Zlin, and taken to St. Etienne for the Czech v Croatia game) and arrived just in tme to see Sturridge score the winner for England. There was a bar on the concourse at arrivals and as I had 3 hours to wait for "the lads" to turn up I also got to watch the NI game.

    A big crowd stood by the bar watching and as McAuley scored I shouted "YES!!!" and punched the air. As I was wearing my Ireland top (Republic of...) I was quickly mistaken for a NI fan by the locals who spent the rest of the game telling me how proud I should be of my team...........I couldn't be arsed correcting them.

    For the record I had £15 on McAuley @ 33/1 :)
