After the Semis, the Italians were the top scorers. Germany passed them in a meaningless game for 3rd place, in meaningful games Italy were top scorers.

Germany could have put 12 past Portugal for 3rd placem by then it doesn't matter.

Dubious or not, they all count. Extra-time counts too, you DO know the rules, right ?

So, extra-time goals do count, and that's important, but third-place game goals are meaningless, and that's important either.

Euro and WC are no beauty contests, hence Italy was the best team of WC 06 simply because they won.
If you took most goals then Germany won, because yes, every goal counts, no matter if extra time, group stages, penalties or game for third place.
If you judged by beauty I'm not sure which team would be the best. I didn't see all the games and hardly recall any of what I've seen.

I guess Germany will be in the final, and the other team might well be Russia.

Normally I'd be with you all the way on that shout, but after reading this.....



Germany keeper Jens Lehmann says he would 'give his life' to reach the final of Euro 2008. (The Sun)


Come on Germany!!!!!

On a slightly more serious note, just like to say how much I've enjoyed the tournament so far, being able to watch all games as a neutral, without having ridiculous expectations of ingerland to spoil it all for me, its definitely a better tournament without our lot to ruin it. Having said all that, I would like to see Spain win.

So Donadoni is on his way out and apparently rumours are circulating in Italy that Marcelo Lippi might be coming back for 2010.

That's great! Now I want them to advance even more.

It's still so strange, Germans and German players actually singing the hymn. So much has changed over the past years.

Yeah, I would be ok with Spain winning either.

Turkey lead and it's totally deserved. They've been all over Germany thus far.

Lehmann completely at fault for the goal. Should've done much better.

Somehow, I'm not surprised.
