Football: Spanish are no bankers.

SPAIN blotted their copybook as serial qualifying group winners when Greece's 1-0 win in Zaragoza forced them to take the play-off route to Euro 2004.

At 4-9 they are not worth lumping on in a competitive section, but none of the outsiders can be backed with any confidence.

Serbia are dangerous opponents but tend to let themselves down against the smaller nations, while Belgium are tough to beat but do not possess enough genuine world class players.
