It is a stupid seeding technique, the host teams (Poland and Ukraine) get seeded in the top layer along with the top 2 ranking teams (Spain and Germany). It just happened that group A got the weakest team from each seeding layer except the weakest layer. They got Russia from layer 2, Greece from layer 3 and czech republich from layer 4 I think.
Group B got Germany from layer 1, Holland from layer 2, Portugal from layer 3 and Denmark from layer 4.
