    So, who would you like to win/ who do you think will win?

    I think Spain still plays the best football in the world, but I'm not sure it will be enough this time... Perhaps the Netherlands?

    Anyways, I watched a tiiny bit of the opening ceremony, and loved to hear Chopin's Opus #25 right off the bat! At least we're off to a good start!

    As an Englishman I am prepared for disappointment.

    Draw... we had a lot of good chances in the first half, but wasted...
    at 1:1 Greece had a penalty kick, thankfully our goalkeeper saved it!

    Aye, completely dominated them the first 15-20 min, but missed a lot of chances. Also, kudos to the Greek for almoast turning the game around with 10 players (can't believe that poor guy got sent off). All in all, great match!

    Yeah... I'm looking forward to the Russia - Czech Republic game, hard to say who will win, both good teams.. hmm.. I'd go with the Czech Republic - their goalkeeper is truly one of the best in the world right now! but they have to score :wavey:

    :lol: at the red-card happy ref. Apparently he gave out like 16 red cards in the last 19 games he was the referee in.

    I watch a good 5-6 La Liga games every week (I really don't sleep much) and he is hands down the worst ref in there.

    Definitely! hard to say who will win, Germany has a rather young team.
    I wonder how Ronaldo will perform...

    If I had to place a bet I'd say Germany will win :scratch:

    I'm gonna say the same - Germany is a very well oiled machine. Portugal has it's ups and downs and needs Ronaldo to perform to get stuff going.

    This game needs a goal to liven things up a bit. Germany are dominating the game, plenty of possession but it's not leading to much. Portugal don't look great but I reckon they could snatch a goal on the break.

    Early 2nd half goal for either side would be good.

    Great second half - especially the end.
    If only Portugal would attack at the beginning like in the second half t would be a different game!

    Congratulations Germany! well deserved win :)

    Portugal left it too late to actually start playing some decent football. Germany deserved to win.

    Not a great game, very scrappy, a lot of fouls breaking up the flow of the game. Last 10-15 minutes was entertaining.
