    You have just lost 20 bucks. I will get drunk only if we win the tournament (that means in my wildest dreams). Actually the last time I had a hangover due to a sport event was back in 1997 when Olympiakos won the european basketball championship in Rome.

    This just prove my point: The Frenshmen aren't the best team in the world, they are the luckiest.

    WC quarter final 1998? They won against Italy when Luigi Di Biagio hitted the bar. That sure ain't skill.

    EC semi-final 2000? They won against Portugal on a penalty that they shouldn't have gotten in the first place.

    EC final 2000? They won over Italy on overtime because of luck in the equalizer.

    It ain't ****ing fair, I tell ya.

    speechless. For those who left the stadium early, for those who switched channel early, you missed the most dramatic 3 mins in history.

    Yeah, I've noticed myself saying that a few times when Sweden beats us in icehockey. It just ain't fair. :D

    Personally I dislike both the English and French teams but I consider the French to be the lesser evil so I'm more than happy with the results as long as they don't go and repeat what they did last time against italy, now that was truly horrible.

    Morgoroth, I know about the hockey. But look at it this way, which team lost against Belarus in the quarter final in icehockey 2001?

    Yeah but last year in Finland we actually led by four goals (or was it three?) and then we go and lose the damn match! Such things just can't happen, but still they do.

    Oh and the Belarus thing, I will never ever forget that one goal witch went past Tommy Salo, I have it on video and it's still funny as hell. :D

    Going quite a lot offtopic right now though. Perhaps we should bring this up more closely when the World Cup of hockey begins. ;)

    6. England - France 1 - 2. England lost after having the lead up to the 91th minute when France managed to equilaize and then afterwards take the lead against England on a penalty. David Beckham missed a penalty while Zidane managed to score, but who were the better player that day? How will England manage to beat both Croatia and Switzerland, two teams that showed a good performance in their game, and manage to go to the quarter finals?

    7. Denmark versus Italy tomorrow. Italy have a lot to stand up for while Denmark have played very stable these last few months. Italy, on the other hand, have given up their defence tactics that the classical team have used since the 60's and have started to use the 4-3-1-2 tactics that Spanish teams use well in la Liga. Will the usually stable Italian defence be able to hold of Jörgensen and Tomasson? Will the Italian attack be able to co-operate to take out Denmark before they even had the chance to attack?

    8. Sweden versus Bulgaria tomorrow. Bulgaria is the underdog in this tournament and Sweden have a troop without any injuries at all. Henrik Larsson, the effective goalscorer from Celtic have returned to the squad and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the talented player from Ajax, are both on form and the Bulgarian goalkeeper nothing special. Bulgaria plays like Sweden in many ways, mostly with their team-before-inviduals attitude, and if they manage to keep their defence together they may be able to keep Christian Wilhelmsson, Fredrik Ljungberg, Anders Svensson, and Kim Källström away, but for how long?

    I think that England's main problem in the games against Switzerland and Croatia is that they have to be the creative side in these games, since Swiss and Croats are going to follow and defensive strategy. This means that the English can't play as they play tonight with massive defense and counterattacks.

    Man your fast with posting!!

    First of all.

    I was gonna congratulate all English here, especially Morsmordre, but I offer my condolences instead :D

    Second of all.

    Congratulations to the few french people here!

    Third of all (now this will be in dutch and it won't be pretty)

    Wat een Kutzooi!! :mad:

    France didn't deserve it, England wasn't that good either but they had that defence right on. Last WC France hadn't the oppurtunity to play with Zidane and they didn't make one goal. Now they should have lost this match to the english if it wasn't for that sickly talented Zidane.

    I wish Rooney (he has the knack for it) broke Zidanes anckle :evil: ;)

    For tomorrow I have high hopes for italia and Sweden (both of course in my EC management team). Zlatan Ibrahimovich rulezz!

    Apeman, it's Ibrahimovic, not Ibrahimovich.

    I'm not going to lie to you, I am a huge Ajax fan and unfortunatly have had a few nice glasses of red wine this evening, so if I misspelled one player........well frankly I don't give a flying **** ;)

    Oh....and you know what it is with Beckham missing that penalty?

    It's Loos.......you know Rebeccaa.....that Dutch slut.....Bwahahahahahaha :evil: :lol:

    Sure hope Holland wins against Germany this tuesday...otherwise I'm going to get flamed by some people here :o

    Well, I forgive ya, but if you go and spell Zlatan's name wrong in front of him, he will slit your throat. :D

    Now, I was the neutral viewer, and I must concur. The game was good until, say, the 91th minute when ****ing miss fortuna wanted to give France another shot in the tournament.


    I hope they'll end up last in the group.

    Wow - my faith in my predictions has been restored in the last few minutes. Maybe England won't win Euro after all. What a capitulation!

    Ha. This is the first soccer game I've ever watched (it's not that big in Canada), but it was Sunday afternoon and there was nothing else on, so I decided to see this "world's most popular sport" everybody speaks of.

    Great game. I was totally into it, although it helped that I didn't care if England or France won. Maybe I'll have to watch more of this soccer (yeah, to us North Americans it's soccer; our football is a sport where very few feet actually make contact with said ball).

    Czech Republic - Germany
    Germany - Netherlands
    Netherlands - Czech Republic
    Portugal - Spain
    Italy - Denmark

    Portugal v Spain is now a huge game for determining who England might meet in the next round.
