Starts today(for me anyway)! The next best thing after the World Cup. Footballing wise, I enjoy this tournament more than the World Cup!

Top 2 from each group qualify for the knockout stages. For those of you that don't know the groups:

Group A
Switzerland
Czech Republic
Portugal
Turkey

Group B
Austria
Croatia
Germany
Poland

Group C
Netherlands
Italy
Romania
France

Group D
Greece
Sweden
Spain
Russia

So who does everyone fancy? England haven't qualified so who will everyone be supporting?

Well that Turkey vs Czech game yesterday was quite thrilling. Game of the tournament so far in terms of drama. Croatia are looking very strong, so are the Dutch and Portugal.

Glad Greece have been knocked out. Watching their games should be used as an interrogation technique at Guantanamo Bay.

Portugal vs Germany in the quarter-final, that will be quite a game.

Indeed!

As you stated, the Germany/Portugal game will be one worth watching; glad I got satellite back.  :)

Nan was over yesterday and was quite impressed I knew what was going on  :P

Awesome. I'm looking forward to the France vs Italy game tonight!

I feel sorry for France as their manager is a bit of a lunatic - picks players based on astrological signs :lol:

Well both could go out tonight. I'd have bet my penis that both France and Italy wouldn't go out at this stage.

I'm not so sure about Spain but they have a good team. Just if France/Italy get through tonight then Spain have a tough quarter-final. If they meet either of those I see them choking  :P

I'd love to see Croatia win it

Germany managed to pull a big performance out when it matters last night! Glad to see the back of Portugal. Ronaldo's been a tit for the past few weeks anyway.

Loved the Holland vs. Russia game.  I've been supporting Russia all the way through, but I didn't actually expect them to get this far.  I'm now hoping they can keep it up, because it looks like they may actually be in with a chance of winning the whole thing.  Biggest problem is that whoever they face in the semi-final (Spain or Italy) will be an incredibly difficult match.

In the meantime, though... пойдите Россия!  (that's Go Russia! in Russian, by the way - pronounced 'poyditye rossiya').

Not a bad match. Nan came over to watch it and managed to give me about an hour's worth of stats on Spain in 25 minutes of play.  :lol:


Down to penalty kicks is always good. I dig games that come down to the wire.

YEAH SPAIN!!!! WOO! That was awesome  :P Nan was just saying that's the first time since the 20s Spain has beat Italy.

The semi-final is gonna be a kind of grudge match for Spain and Russia.  Their first match of the tournament, Spain beat Russia 4-1.  Hoping Russia manage to beat them this time.

You'd better not be insulting Eastern Europeans where I can see... otherwise I might just have to start talking about how all Italian men are gay. ;)
