Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

Hope to tune in to what I can.

My team is Die Mannschaft! Been a die hard fan since they were still "West Germany"

Pulling hard for Scotland as well....lived there for 4 years and they'll always have a place in my heart.

*GAH can't believe we drew France in the first game.

I'm keeping an eye on the UK squads, it's the closest I have to a Manx national team. :(

Although the Belgium match tomorrow is looking interesting. I've been to Bruges in 2015 so I have an fondness for the nation, especially their chocolate and beer :w00t:

I'm still gutted my ancestral homeland Iceland didn't make it this year after blowing it against Hungary in the qualifiers. Nothing will be able to top sending out England in 2016.

That said, I love football and will be watching as much as I can. Everyone is picking France, so I imagine they'll find some way to blow it like 2002 and 2010 :shifty: . Italy looked very good today, but I'm not sure how good Turkey actually is this year. Belgium, Germany, Spain, and even England if they don't choke again all look like they could win this year. But at the end of the day, I just hope a team like Portugal doesn't fluke themselves to a win again. 1 win in full time, what the hell was that!?

Thankfully, he's alive. Kudos the medical team to get his heart going again.

Thank goodness, though it's highly probable he'll retire from professional football. Considering what happened to Muamba years ago.

And I'm please to hear Belgium's leading, relatives used to work on campsites there

still suffering vacation return hangover.....gah...would have preferred to stay up in the mountains.

How about DENMARK after all!!!! Seems to be a dearth of strikers on most of the teams. Need Germany to get the win on Hungary but
they aren't to be taken lightly after getting the tie with France and basically losing to Portugal in the last 5 mins of that match.

I thought Scotland was unlucky in the first match but played well tying with England.....England...is it just me or do they seem to always have
problems putting away teams they should beat when it counts in a tournament?

How about Wales???? Defense looks stellar.

Have you ever seen so many "own goals?"

Belgium and Netherlands look solid.

Germany Vs Hungary was an epic match in a driving rain......Germany manages to slither through to the knockout round by the skin of their teeth getting
the tie.

Group F truly was the Death group.

some good knockout matches over the weekend, finally got to see Italy play and holy Gendo balls are they terrifying. Like a swarm of angry wasps.

brilliant team work...best I've seen in the tournament for sure, amazing that Austria hung with them until the overtime. Great match.

So yesterday was probably the craziest day of football I've ever seen. It was actually kind of weird how similar both games played out with the underdogs both coming back from 3-1 down in the last ten minutes.

Anyways, France choked, and with them gone I'm thinking Italy, Spain, or perhaps Belgium are going to win the whole thing. They've been the only teams that have looked nearly flawless so far, although Belgium may be done in by injuries.

Yes they did, congrats! Was tough for me...I expect most of the 2014 WC guys will be out now..and it's time. I'm hoping Flick will have them ready for the WC. Still onward we go....it's anybody's Euro at this point, i wouldn't even want to guess now that the "Group of Death' has been vanquished.
I'm still thinking Italy!

Perhaps you should include the one team that hasn't conceded a goal yet.

Yep, I do for sure now! They have an "easier" path to the final, and if they get to the semis, it'll be all at Wembley. I'm actually considering them the clear favorites at this point, but I hope that's not a jinx lol.

Yeah, I'm watching it. I was legitly surprised with France's defeat yesterday. Switzerland surprised me a lot. Crazy game.
Just sit here and waste your precious time. When you want to do something, don't do it right away. Don't do it when you can. Read my posts instead. It's the only way to live a life without regrets.

England vs Italy it is!

Neither team looked amazing in the semis, But I think England has a slight edge due to being fully healthy and having home advantage.
