for the today matches, watch up latvia, don't undevalue them too much, i think the czech team will win but not more than 1-0 or
2-1, for the evening match germany- holland, well, i was born in germany and i'm hard a stuttgart fan, kevin kuranyi will be the only forward and he plays for stuttgart.....so, i say 1-0 for germany....kuranyi makes it!! though in the dutch team plays van der meyde, and i'm a hard inter milan fan... and probably edgar davids will play for inter too next year....so, maybe 1-1, 2-2....oh, f.ck, i don't know which team i must support!!

Sob! I won't be in Duomo square this Friday -- better avoiding public shows!!!

Anyway, Italians had quite nice HAIRDOs (Vieri & Zambrotta )

Me too, I'd like to change our coach!!!

I think it's because they either had those signatures before premium membership was introduce, or else they made their signature while they were premium members. I think people who aren't premium members can't edit their signature, but if they had a signature already then it just stays the same.

You'll probably get a better answer if you ask in the forum help forum.

I used to be a German supporter a few years ago.... but now as all the reporters have said, with all their talents retired, i wouldn't be surprised if they lost this game seeing as how their success in world cup 2002 was a lucky chance.

I'm thinking 1-0 Netherlands.

damn Germans, threw me another curveball.

they really stifled the Dutch attack though. Ballack was excellent, as was Schweinsteiger ("can there be a more German name?" - commentator ) when he came on.

that said

1) that early yellow by Kuranyi was hilarious.
2) it was a lucky goal for the Germans but they played pretty well afterwards.
3) van Nistelrooy's goal has to be the first one of his I've actually cheered.
4) it's also so far the goal of the tournament, just edging out the Larsson diving header yesterday. haven't seen the Czech-Latvia match though.

what an awful match again
the day when the best thing you can say about the dutch team is that at least they made an effort is a sad day

it was a good thing that the german didn't have the balls to continue the way they played the first half

meh

Indeed, 1-1 was a fair result. Neither side deserved to win (although, I am Dutch and the final 15 minutes were good (or at least better than Germany's final 15 minutes)).

BTW, I didn't think Schweinsteiger was that good, Ballack was though. As for the Dutchies...


Should say enough.

C ya!

Marty (thinks that in the second half the team was more balanced than in the first one)

A new low?

Italians Blame Socks and Shoes.

LISBON (AP) - The shoes didn't fit, the socks were too rough and the heat was too much.

Italy rolled out the excuses Tuesday following a 0-0 tie with Denmark in 34 C weather in its European Championship opener a day earlier.

tonight's matches:
Russia v. Portugal
Greece v. Spain

the Greeks have had their fun, and the Spaniards will want revenge for the qualifying defeat. 3-0 Spain. Fernando Torres to get at least one.

Portugal can't slip up against the Russians, but I think they might. 2-1 win to the home team at best, but a draw may be on the cards. Depends on who they put out really. Personally, I'd play Deco and Ronaldo ahead of Simao and Rui Costa, and I'd drop Fernando Couto, but I don't pick the team.

sort of agree..ballack played excellently

popmartijn - almost 1-0 for germany..am happy for the dutch people though - they managed a draw..however the germans were slightly better..dutch needs to improve if they are going to reach the semi-finals or finals. if it were a hockey match, i would have put my bets on dutch hockey team..football..germans has a slight edge..actually not much to chose from

yertle - where is the 4-1

I told you

those Germans threw me a curve ball

not to worry

super Maris Zervkovskis, whose last name is impossible to spell, will provide a hat-trick and Marians Pahars will score two as the Latvians stage the biggest upset in history and whack Germany 5-1

well if Romania and England can do it...
