Here are one or two stats to get us started.

From the last 18 qualifiers (World Cup and European Championship) Holland won the last 17.  Having lost one in the final game of qualification for Euro 2012 – as the spot was already guaranteed.  That’s an interested one; never rely on a result when a team has guaranteed qualification in any tournament.

Both Germany and Holland will have matches against inferior teams in the qualifying stages of the tournament.  A lay the draw Betfair strategy for Germany and Holland’s matches is a good option.

What’s more, England’s performance against Moldova was encouraging.  Perhaps the victory was gained to easily as a result of a poor hand ball decision by the ref in the first 10 minutes, but, England are ones to watch for trading opportunities.
