Earlier,for a 16-team event a qualifying group that consisted of six teams had just one automatic qualification spot available while the second placed side had to go through a play-off The new format of Euro 2016 has come under lot of criticism AFP The top seeded teams – that includes powerhouses like Germany Spain Italy and England – were kept apart in the qualifiers and thus made them favourites to grab the automatic spot in their respective groups This made the already difficult task for the lower-ranked sides daunting With virtually no margin for error most of these teams perished under pressure in the qualifiers as the seasoned campaigners moved on to the finals The new 24-team format meant there was an additional spot for qualification which reduced that margin for error and even the lowest ranked teams in the groups had a glimmer of hope of reaching the main event Looking back at the qualifiers for Euro 2016 that’s all what was needed Wales Albania Northern Ireland and Iceland made the European Championship finals for the first time Hungary were back into the main event after a gap of 44 years The finals presented these times a great chance for these sides to test themselves learn and get better Fast forward to a day before the knock-out rounds start we’ve got a lot more from them Four out of those five teams have made it to the last 16 two of them as group winners with Wales becoming the first debuting team to top a group in the history of the European Championships Wales along with Hungary are also the joint top scorers (6 goals) in the tournament Once again the changed format has played a key role A possible third qualifying spot from the group has given these ‘so-called’ lesser sides a realistic chance a hope of progressing to the next round That’s spurred them on brought the best out of them and helped introduce their hidden abilities not just to the world but perhaps also to themselves The stories of these teams who made it against all-odds has added that extra bit of romance to the tournament Moreover smaller yet fearsome rivalries have received the limelight that they would have otherwise missed England-Wales Wales-Northern Ireland Croatia-Czech Republic are huge rivalries crying out for attention and Euro 2016’s more accommodative format has given them that For all the benefit to the smaller nations big tournaments like Euro 2016 need its big boys and the new format pretty much ensures all of them reach the knock-out stage This is very important as early exits of the bigger sides from such events could deal a huge financial blow to Uefaand its partners for the event Early exits of several big sides like Spain England and Portugal at the 2014 Fifa World Cup had hurt Fifa and especially the advertiser and broadcasters for the events "Although Fifa spends significant time and money boasting their standing as a ‘non-profit’ the World Cup in the end is a business selling a product" Tony Knopp CEO of Spotlight Ticket Management said "That product loses value when superstar-laden teams are knocked out of the tournament early just like any major sporting event or league" So on that front Uefahas been smart to ensure it doesn’t suffer financially and the majority of the big guns go the distance The Bad Dull boring uninteresting have been some of the adjectives which have been used to describe the Euro 2016 group stages There are quite a few numbers which support these claims The Euro 2016 group stages have recorded 19 goals per game – the lowest tally for the group stages in a European Championship since 1992 Also 39% of the games in the group stages have had a maximum of one goal scored meaning they have either been 0-0 draws or 1-0 wins This is by no means an ideal scenario for a host of neutral fans watching across the globe and a part of the blame lies with the format Unlike the lesser teams – whose qualification hopes have been boosted by the opening up of a possible third spot – the top teams’ task has become easier One win by a big margin more or less guarantees them a place in the next round and with pre-decided draws for the same there is very little incentive for them to play at their full strength So when their second-stringers – under no real pressure – come up against one of the resolute lowly teams – from whom a point suffices – there is little scope for anything exciting to happen on the field Another major criticism of the format has been the fact that a team might not win a game in the group stage and still make it to the knock-outs It is another scenario which would be better off being avoided However those criticisms have taken a slight back seat after Portugal happened to be that team Critics are now finding it slightly awkward to argue that presence of a winless team could reduce the standard of the latter stage of the tournament as Portugal could just prove otherwise The Ugly If there is one aspect about Euro 2016 where different schools of thoughts are on the same page it’s in criticising the draw of the knock-out stages While it’s extremely tedious for an average fan to decipher how the draw panned out those who actually manage to do so will figure out its quite simply unfair Unlike previous editions where group runners-up were pitted against group winners the third-placed teams have altered the dynamics The organizers decided that winners of Groups A to D will play the qualified third-placed teams and the unfortunate winners of Groups E and F will face runners-up of other groups It is quite baffling that there is no place for merit of performance in a tournament of such a high stature and teams qualifying from certain two groups will have a slightly tougher draw compared to other for no footballing reason at all For example Italy were certain to face Runners-up from a group containing Spain and Croatia irrespective of however handsomely they would top their group On the other hand the likes of France or Germany were to be awarded with one of the third-placed teams all this just for been drawn in groups A to D It doesn’t end here for the 2006 World Cup winners who will have to possibly face Germany one of England and France if they beat Spain to reach the finals while the other side of the draw is quite lightweight UEFA should consider the performances in the group stage to determine which team plays whom in the last 16 For instance the best four group winners should ideally get to play play the four third-placed teams the remaining two winners play the two worst runners-up and the remaining runners-up could be pitted against one another depending on their performance That way it kills two birds in one stone Firstly it ensures that that no one group enjoys better rub of the green than the other and secondly and most importantly it gives the top sides some incentive to take all the games seriously The only problem in this case is the group stage fixtures could be repeated in the round of sixteen while pitting the winners and the third-placed teams but that could be avoided by simply having a group protection clause It is fair to say that UEFA has been right to increase the number of teams for the European Championship and it will only help making more teams more competitive With the likes of Netherlands Serbia Scotland Denmark and Greece not at the Euro 2016 finals it’s clear that Europe has enough good teams to sustain this format But there needs to be some radical changes that need to be made to the way teams are put in the draw to make the competition even more exciting and entertaining Written by Press Trust Of India | Published: June 16 2012 12:05 am Related News Kolkata:Former Asian Games gold medallist quarter-miler Pinki Pramanikwho was arrested on
