Finally, a decent game tonight. The second Dutch goal was a thing of beauty.
Yeah it was a great game. The France v Romania first half was as dull as. Tonight's one a classic though. The Italians played well too so I look forward to some of the other games in that group.
It was probably the best thing Italy losing early goals because it made them play instead of just sitting back.
Agree about the France Romania game, a poor show.
I caught the end of it, fantastic match. I am still tipping Italy to win, they never look good at the beginning of a tournament and it will be difficult for the Dutch to hold that form right through.
Could make an interesting rematch in the semis if it were to come to that (based on today's form).
I've got a few bob on Croatia but I don't hold out much hope! The Dutch looked good but so did Itay at times. Toni's a bit of a lump IMO - not in the subtle mode of past Italian strikers.
I was favouring the Netherlands and Spain before the tournament - even more so now. The Spanish look really sharp this year...
those two, along with england, always enter tournaments among the favourites and then manage to balls it up. '66 and '88 apart, they've won very little.
Beware the Germans.
you can never write them off can you
Discount the <enter any team> at your peril...
Football? It's all Greek to me...
I thought Corinthian Casuals were foreign shoes.
The second Portuguese goal was fab.
Bit dissapointed that Ronaldo hasn't taken his top off yet.
Unless Scotland are there
Not even Scotland can be discounted...
