Haven't a clue what you mean, normally I would be in. €100 to potentially win just €300 seems a hig stake for a possible small multiple..

Who buys Newspapers these days? Can you not do it on the lotto numbers? Anywaysanall, I'll have a go for a ton. Sure, we might get 8 groups... I'd say Ken will have a go anyway?

Eight Groups some of them contain absolute shite .Four Groups of Eight at least everybody has at least one live chance of reaching the Final .Unless England play up to their potential then its a one horse race .

I don't know anything about soccer so I'll have to trust you to devise fair groups. Maybe you could see how many want to play and then make the groups by ranking teams in accordance with the bookies odds or something like that?

Then we can only have 4 players.

On the basis of 4 players I would suggest you assign the letters A B C and D to each player (in alphabetical order of Christian names) i.e the letter A is assigned to the first player listed in said alphabetical order, etc... and rank the groups of teams from 1 to 4 ideally with group 1 containing the bookies favourite, group 2 containing the 2nd fav, group 3 the 3rd fav and group 4 the 4th fav.
The following lotto numbers are hereby deemed assigned to each letter:
A: 1 - 12
B: 13 - 24
C: 25 - 36
D: 37 - 48
Each player is then assigned a group of teams based on the order of numbers drawn in the next lotto draw i.e if the first number drawn is 13 Player B gets group 1, etc. In the unlikely event that no lotto numbers are drawn from 2 or more players' groups (A-D) the next lotto draw shall determine remaining allocations.

I guess that's acceptable. I'll put your apparent disregard for the alphabet down to your dyslexia illiteracy.

What about Harold?
