France were pretty dire in the first half.

Didn't watch afterward. Cleaned the old keyboard and kept up with Soccernet.

At least Rothen got 15 minutes or so.

I really should have visited this forum before...could have vented my spleen several times.

Anyway, I have one thing to say to France:

HA!

I'm supporting the scandinavians now, their fans are great

About the game:



Not the quality of course, but Greece beating France.


Still, based on tonights game Greece deserved to win. France did play dire (no, not pretty )

Didn't watch the game today... but wow... what a shock!

Wouldn't it be a real shock if they ended up winning??

greece showed that many teams are just too superficial and vainglorious, portugal, spain and france just thought they were too good to play with determination, strength and most of all RESPECT....so, this is the right end they deserved, like italy and germany, except portugal of course, they woke up after the rabbit punch against the greeks!.....now, i think the final's gonna be czech republic against portugal

No, that wasn't a goal, not even a half one. Barthez stopped it before it crossed the line. Remember that the ball has to cross the line in full to be counted. Based on the video, it didn't. It was close though.

@ the half goal.

I still can't believe France have gone out. Anyone have any predictions for who's going to win?

I don't much care who wins, but I'm not a fan of Greece or Portugal. I like the Czechs, they're fun to watch.

Sweden is my team of choice (they have the best colours), but my orange Netherlands bear is happy that the Dutch have won.

YES WE ARE!!!



As for penalty shoot-outs, we got rid of our 'internal enemy'. We lost four of them in the last five tournaments (not counting this one, but 1992, (not 1994 when we went out in regular time) 1996, 1998 and 2000), but finally we won one again.

Enjoy your celebrations!

Just before the penalties started the commentators on English tv were talking about their record on penalty shoot-outs...I guess after losing the last four it was time you had some luck! Or maybe the team had just been practising their penalties.
