Skilled square passing is still boring as hell.

The best review of the game I've seen

Fittingly in this steaming pile of shit of a match Xabi Alonso marked
his 100th game in a Spain shirt with both goals. Iniesta played a great
pass inside Debuchy to Alba, Debuchy decided the best course of action
when defending a through ball was to attempt a diving header, Alba
skipped past his lame challenge, put in an out swinging cross and Xabi
fucking Alonso arrived to plant a header inside the left post. Casillas
tipped away a Cabaye free kick - the only noteworthy effort the anaemic
French managed on goal. Mr Disingenuous passed up the chance to dive in
the box after Lloris raced off his line and shut down a Xavi through
pass. Another of the Barcelona bastards, Pedro, dived under minimal
contact with Reveillere to win the penalty.

Benzema should hang his head in shame. I think he's only drew one
difficult save from a goalkeeper in four games. Even when it's clear the
Barcelona players have gone to ground theatrically referees see the
sadness and despair in their tiny little eyes and can't help but to
award penalties.

Spain - taking the joy out of football one tournament at a time.

So much of this.

I know it takes a lot of skill to do what they do but that doesn't make it beautiful. They're playing football, not handball. And then all the praise they get... I haven't seen an exciting Spain match in years.

Well, not everybody appreciates a classic Karpov match, but that's not his fault.

Spain force their opponents to play that way which does make it their fault. More power to them I guess. It's just not enjoyable for a neutral supporter.

Greece were pilloried for the way they played in 2004, wonder how many of those critics praise Spain's brand of defensive football ? Catenaccio is catenaccio and Spain are the modern day masters of it. Classic case of lipstick on a pig.

Italie wins on penalties. Damn that was a nervewrecking match, but a very deserved win.

England really is cursed at Penalty Kicks. Pirlo scored a pretty save-able penalty kick and then Young misses. Or did that happen first? I already forgot.

That was pretty much a game to see who loses to Germany though. I want Germany-Portugal, that would be a fun one to watch.

Pirlo's penalty was the most beautiful thing ever. He just... stopped, and softly pushed into the middle when Hart was already lying down.

Yes, Pirlo's PK is completely saveable if you know it's coming.

It's a fairly common way to take a penalty like that but it takes a lot of skill, and courage.

And when Ashley Cole stopped in his tracks, I knew he'd miss.

England lost in a penalty shootout?





Semi-final is going to be interesting.
