This, perhaps, was not the new Europe that the leaders of the continents nations had envisaged when the Berlin Wall came tumbling down in November 1989. The years between the European Championships of 1988 and 1992 were the most politically tumultuous since the end of the Second World War. At varying points over the course of those four intervening years, the geopolitics of the entire continent had been upturned.

There can be few things more tiresome in international football than war analogies. Sometimes, however, they are inescapable and this can be no more true than in the case of European nations which once pitched up against each other on battlefields, only to find themselves facing off against their former allies or rivals for decades afterwards.

One could forgive the Czech Republic for being a little circumspect in their preparations for the 2012 European Championships. Having failed to qualify for the World Cup finals again two years ago they've only qualified for one World Cup finals since the division of the Czechoslovakia's national football team split into two early in 1994 their qualification for this European Championships was modest and unspectacular.

As football entered the twenty-first century its race towards full industrialisation had more or less been completed. Resource management had become everything. In club football, scouting networks had diversified in order to fall quickly upon any young player spotted that hadn't already got a professional contract, whilst at international level the stigma surrounding appointing foreign coaches had been diluted with several high profile European appointments.

The Netherlands will try to win the World Cup final on their third attempt. Czechoslovakia (1934 and 1962) and Hungary (1938 and 1954) are the other two countries besides the Netherlands who have featured in two World Cup finals on the losing end. (West Germany was on the losing end in 1966, 1982 and 1986 but won the World Cup in 1954 and 1974 before unification with East Germany).

That's great and all, but pundits are saying that this New Zealand squad is by far the worst team in the tournament. Although they've shown some positive signs leading up to the World Cup, they have a huge uphill battle ahead of them if they want to get out of the group.

Appearances at World Cup finals: Slovakia are making their debut at the World Cup Finals as an independent nation. As Czechoslovakia, they reached eight finals competitions, making the Quarter Finals in 1938 and 1990, perhaps disappointing for a team which won the European Championships of 1976.

We've already dealt with the shock of Italy's World Cup exit. Or we've posted about it at least. I suspect it will take a while for Azzurri fans to fully process it. The happier story is that Slovakia playing in their first World Cup as an independent nation after years of watching the Czech Republic hog all the post-Czechoslovakia glory, are through to the last 16 of World Cup 2010.

Italy will look to recapture the magic of their 2006 title run quite literally, with a roster heavy on World Cup veterans.

For Slovakia's World Cup debut (or their first without the Czecho prefix anyway) the team has been drawn into Group F along with Italy, Paraguay and New Zealand. Not exactly easy, but it could have been a lot worse. Which is good, because this team has a lot to offer.

Slovakia is one of those teams you think you know nothing about, until you realize that some of their players are actually quite famous.
