    England has two players less to worry about, we've crippled them badly for you guys. And Ronaldo isn't quite fit either, his leg got almost chopped in half. Should be easy pickings. :)

    If you can't beat a weakened Portugal, then something is wrong and you should hide your head in shame.

    What you seem to be forgetting is the England squad is also considerably weekend. No Owen probably no Neville and our fittest striker is the Crouchbot :rolleyes: . Not to mention our coach is... well lets just say not the best. :p

    EDIT:
    Just read this:
    Hehe i love the Dutch. :thumb:

    I can't believe Spain lost! They were looking pretty good in the group stages, and dangerous enough to be a real threat for the Cup.

    @ MON,

    Please, please, please start barracking for Italy.

    Sorry Rutkowski & Shaitan, but if Italy can't even beat Australia cleanly, they ain't gonna make it all the way to the final.

    It would've been easier if it'd been a clear loss. A 2-0 or 3-0 beating would have meant something much different, to everyone. Australia was a real success story in the World Cup this year - they did better than anyone expected them to, and since it's one area where Australia don't dominate, people got behind the underdog.

    Unfortunately, all Italy got out of their round of 16 match was a ticket to play Ukraine - they sure as hell didn't win any respect or support from it. I (and most of Australia, probably) really don't care who beats them - in fact, I almost want them to get to the final and lose to a questionable decision.

    Yeah, since no-one seems to be backing them, and with some of the stories I'm hearing out of Oehringen, I'll second that, HB.

    NonSeq, the Italians are my top 'favorites' atm. I will paint my house blue with green/white/red stripes. I will decorate my walls with pizze and icecream. I am collecting pictures of the former Dutch journal host Harmen Siezen because the Italian coach Marcello Lippi doesn't seem to like his job. :D

    I 'fear' they will lose, though. :p

    (Don't get me wrong. I like Italy and their people, food etc. I just don't like their soccerplays...)
