Well, when the Germans don't beat the Czech Republic and the Dutch beat Latvia, then we will go through. If German wins, it's all over though...

We played against Denmark in qualifications, they really are good!
Who can you see in the finals?
I say England vs. Denmark or Czech Republic

Oh, I missed that part... sorry!

Can I say I really HATE the way points are given?

The success/unsuccess depends too much on other teams' results!!!

Well, that's not entirely correct. Although both flags are red and white and have a cross, they aren't exact reversals of each other.

England:


Switzerland:


A better opponent would have been Denmark:

Although that one also isn't an exact reversal...

yeah, I kinda noticed afterward. I blame my broadcaster for making the flags look all square and everything.

Regarding flags, I'm sure I saw a flag of Northern Irish paramilitary group "Red hands" during one of the matches.

It made me feel so BAD!

i think its bad for the tournament as a whole to see both spain and italy out.
i mean think about it, who would you prefer to watch in the final, spain v italy or denmark v greece?

taking nothing away from greece and denmark, i know they are there on merit, but i just think its bad for the neutral supporter.

Considering the attractiveness of the game, I'd more likely watch Denmark - Greece than boring defense - boring defense (can't distinguish Italy and Spain by their game).

Which is yet another reason that Germany should not reach the quarter finals.

so, the nightmare is over, italy went deserved out, we played a horrible football........i guess, how it seems, that there are some here who are happy that italy lost, but it's ok, no problem, personally i can accept to be defeated and even to suffer derison eventually .....but no one is trying to get excuses, the coach and the players are conscious that they sucked, and the rest of all the italian fans know it too, there's nothing to hide, we didn't play football, it was the biggest shame in the whole italian football history!!......but please, no one in italy is talking about a conspiracy, we take our responsibilities, but if you come to me and say that denmark-sweden was a FAIR GAME, then i'm the major of rome! everyone usually(not in this thread) is ready to point the italians as whiners, cunnings, stonemartens, calculating men etc etc, but why is it so difficult to admit a so clear and solar agreement between the teams of denmark and sweden? how can it be that the danish keeper caused first a penalty for sweden and then, in the last minute (!), rejected a very easy ball just on the foot of a swedish player standing there all alone, with all the danish defenders watching at him so helpessly? why did the danish forwards shot for innumerable times over the clouds in front of the swedish keeper when they were still 2-1? why all the newspapers in denmark and sweden were praising a 2-2 final result joking around with italy? i'm sure of one thing, if italy would have done what the danish and swedish did last night, there would have been comments like, "here they are, the italians, everytime the same italians, the masters of the tricks!" come on, it wasn't a clear game at all, just admit it, by now we are OUT, WE DESERVED TO GO OUT, BECAUSE ITALY OFFENDED FOOTBALL, all the players must shame on them, they earn so much money and they're neither able to kick a ball, but don't say that denmark-sweden was a fair game, because i'd piss myself laughing

I haven't seen anything in the Denmark - Sweden game that I haven't seen in other games. In terms of mistakes, penalties and cock-ups it was a match like any other. I have seen other games in the past that were set-up, and it was all too obvious there, 90 minutes there looked just like the Denmark - Sweden game in the last few minutes. If this was orchestrated than it's they should get an Oscar for it.

We did it.

And more importantly, the Czechs did it too!

We've reached the quarter finals and Germany is out!
