Ireland were terrible, as expected. It was a minor miracle for us to get there with that team, so we're not expecting much.
Just saw a bit of England and they have the same old problems, but expectations are low over there too. For as long as I can remember England have been madly hyped (within England) and this time it's very strange.
It will be interesting to see the hype kick back in if they qualify. I'd like to see them do well, but not win it. We pick up all the UK channels here so we'd spend the next 40 years hearing all about it if they won.
I thought Denmark looked like a neat, compact team, and obviously Russia look like the team to beat so far, even if they look a bit old and slow at times.
