    I knew we'd win and although I'm still gutted we didn't get to take on holland in what would have been a dream final I'm happy with our performance overall (especially destroying argentina! :hbang:) and I'm really stoked up for the next euro tournament now.

    Same here. Uruguay in one hell of a relentless team! Aren't there any Uruguayans at ss.org?

    I really wanted Uruguay to win against the Germans... had a rather large bet on them lol ... let us just hope Spain win tomorrow so I can recoup at least "a little" !

    Yeah, I just picked some really stereotype images :lol:

    Who do you think will win and why?
    Now, don't start flaming here, let me tell you first that I'm not a fanatic footbal supporter, but I'm from the Netherlands, and we're in the finals again after a lot of years, so I'm curious
    + it seemed like a nice subject to make a topic about to me :)
    So let's discuss and have fun! Also, mention if you're going to watch the match!

    Spain will win I think, though Germany were the strongest team in the competition. They were flattening the competition in a steamroller fashion, but Spain's dull football shut them down and didn't let them open their full attacking style up.

    I think we could be in for a dreadfully boring final now that Germany are out.

    Screw the bird, he lacks experience, a winstreak, and doesn't have as many limbs.

    But the octopus has never called a game not involving Germany. He is too far out of his element.

    Dull? I find Spain's game to be the most exciting in the tournament, at least until they get up by a goal or two. David Villa is the man

    Nederlands needs to win this. They've been to the final a bunch of times and not won it. I don't think the same has happened for spain, I think Holland deserve it more. Spain do look strong though, and anything can happen - I mean, I predicted a Germany VS Brazil final early on and look what happened to that :lol:
