    ^Hart is a cracking keeper, no idea why they brought Green over him for the World Cup.

    Will there be a year when Finland is in the cup? Unless we would be the host, its not going to happen too soon, and that makes me sad. :'(

    How the fuck did you guys think Italy - England was boring? It was packed with action. Spain - France on the other hand was boring because it was everything but packed with action.

    Okay. I guess compared to Spain - France it was interesting, but Italy v. England seemed rather one sided. I wish Poland had made it further, they always put on a good show.

    It may have been one sided, but I honestly don't give a crap if it's 2 teams I don't care about.

    Sitting back defending the entire game is not entertaining imo. England have gone into the old Italian style of 10man defence and it is horrible to watch. Not sure what you mean about 'action packed' haha. Italy had a few good chances but other than that it was dull as hell.

    I think the problem with England is that they just aren't up to date with the modern game. We're just too...well....English.

    Italy had the ball and actually tried to go for it. Yes, England did almost nothing but defend, but the ball wasn't just being passed around like in the Spain - France game after Spain scored. As long as the ball stays out of the middle for as long as possible I'm happy.

    It might not have been entertaining for you to watch your own team defend for an entire game, but for someone like me who didn't give a damn about who won I was glad to see that there were some shots on goal.

    Awesome - happy with the results!! Spain look like they might win it again. Waiting for tomorrow's game, if Italy advance (doubt it) then Spain will definitely have a better chance than the German machine.

    But man Ronaldo should have stepped up and taken the shot for Bruno... he didn't even get to kick one.

    ^
    The Swedish commentators came to the conclusion that they had to do it in the order they gave the referee, hence why Bruno Alves got sent back by Navi, they probably sent out the wrong guy by accident or something.

    I'm disappointed by Ronaldo this tournament, he's been missing the goal so much it's not even funny. Would've liked to see more opportunities for Navi instead.

    I'm calling a Germany win. Spain are a fantastic team so it will be great to watch but I'm pegging Germany as the winners.

    England isn't my team, Germany is ;)

    My final point as I think just about everyone knows how anti-sitting back I am now :lol:. I can't believe teams do that shit in the Quarter and Semi Finals. It should be an all out battle for domination, not some half arsed attempt.

    Anyway, hopefully Germany call brush past Italy and finally knock those unworthy Spanish from their high horse.

    Two 1-0 wins after dreadful gameplay does not constitute a clear winner imo. :fawk:

    Are you honestly telling me Spain played amazing in their finals and it was action packed?

    Other than their passing (best in the world I admit it), it's so predictable and lethargic. Here is Spain 90% of the time..

    Pass through midfield for 10mins, pass out wide, realise they suck at crossing (against a good defence), pass back to centre, try to walk the ball into the goal, get blocked, pass back to CB/GK. REPEAT. :wallbash:

    I could understand that you dont like their playing style but that does not mean they do not deserve to win.

    I hope we'll meet in the final btw.:yesway:
