Euro Cup 2008

Recommended Posts

Tonight (tomorrow morning for us down under) the AZZURRI are playing against France.

It will be a long night for me...hahahaha..

FORZA ITALIA!! :cheer::cheer:

I know, it's on at some ungodly hour and only on pay tv <_< . I have a very important exam the next day, so I can't stay up!

The Netherlands kickass, so hopefully they'll defeat Romania anyway, meaning that we're in!

:beer: Hate to sound like a merchant of doom, but all the talk is that Holland will do as all teams do when they're already through - they'll rest key players for the next round.

Rumania aren't a bad team at all, and it wouldn't be a great surprise to see them upset a weakened Dutch side - so this is real pressure tonight for Italy and France, the 2 nations who contested the World Cup final, and would have been EXPECTED to go through to the knockout stages, even if this group IS the group of death.

Go Azzurri!! :beer:

I'm rooting for Holland and Spain. I think Portugal (no disrespect to our Portuguese friends) has too much smoke blown up it's arse, thanks to ol' Ronnie. I really wanted Poland to do well, because I'm part Polish, but Germany and, now, Croatia have seen an end to that. It's been quite nice not having England compete, at least we don't have to worry about losing. So, it's with that in mind that I'd be happy if Holland or Spain won it - and I'm not just saying that 'cause Arsenal players play for both :D

im part polish too, my mom is polish.... what about you?

:beer: This French side look a very pale shadow of what they were - and they're going out.

They've lost Ribery to injury, are down to ten men, and even with 25 to go, italy go 2 - 0 up, and that's a wrap.

The only question now is, what's going on in the other game ? It's a disappointing Rumania - they are behind to a reserve Holland, who are dominating the game.

looks like Italy will survive the group of death after all - who would bet against them now ?

and they've won it !

they are protected from on high, or down below, one of the two.

I bet they can't wait to play Germany. Mind you they will be fearless by now I guess with nothing to lose. They just don't give up do they? :o

WHAT ABOUT THESE RUSSIANS !!

3 - 1 ahead with about 3 minutes on the watch.

And it's deserved - they've been comfortably the better side, and it's that man Gus Hiddink again. His record with unfashionable teams is amazing.

Holland ....... for all their glam 'n glitz, super skills, and total football have flopped again. They always flatter only to deceive. Like England, they have won only 1 tournament, and that was way back in the stone age.

[just finished watching the game..]

Spain beats Italy.. on PKs. :(

Aw well.. cheers to Spain. :beer:

They deserved it; the Italian side looked the weaker side.

semi-final matchups:

Turkey vs Germany

Spain vs Russia

Should be two good games.. though I think the Turkish side is pretty well

depleted at this point. I'd like to see Germany and underdog Russia in the final. :thumbsup:
