I'm curious how they go about putting the groups together. Having Germany, Holland, and Portugal in the same group doesn't make sense to me.
They put all the teams into four "pots" based on their rankings. The host nations are also put in the first pot followed along with the highest ranked teams. After that it's a random draw.
