Rooting for the Poles and Russians, both have played attractive attacking football this tournament, and it would be great to see one of the hosts reach the last 8.

Well that went well for me...

Ridiculous that Greece have gone through, they have been just awful this tournament. May as well give Germany a bye in the next round now. Horrible that Poland are out as well, and Russia who were the best side after the first round of matches are out too! Unbelieveable!

Christ my heart was truly in my throat at the end of that Czech game. What a clearance! Was so worried there for Cech of Czech! Happy that they're through, and lol Greece.

I hope Germany wins tomorrow.
That way, we (the Dutch) still have a little chance to go through to the next round..

Which will never happen ever :'(

Surely even Mr Pessimism yourself can't see Germany losing to Denmark later, and then losing to Greece! Struggling to break down defensive sides is one thing, losing to a team like Greece is entirely another. They aren't even especially good defensively this year, unlike 2004! I would honestly have said they were the worst side in the tournament until yesterday (along side Ireland).

I'd be perfectly happy with quarter finals (which seems likely now). Barring a heavy victory over the Ukraine or France slipping up the chances are Spain await in the next round, and I don't see us beating them. Semi finals would be bordering on miraculous (probably Germany in the semi?).

I haven't seen yesterdays matches, but I was very surprised after hearing the results. I was sure Russia would advance and I thought Poland would make it through somehow. Greece was one of the worst looking sides thus far and I hoped they'd get knocked out early on.

Anyway, I have Portugal vs Holland 1-1 and Germany vs Denmark 4-0 for tonight. That'd mean Germany and Portugal will advance.

I'm a bit pessimistic about the Netherlands. They've never had much success beating Portugal in former tournaments and I don't see why they would beat them with a two goals difference now.

England had never beaten Sweden in competitive matches before the other night, football history isn't everything.

Game over for the Dutch, and well-deserved too. They weren't able to establish a proper defense for 3 games, and the strikers weren't able to finish any charges towards the goal.
They showed that they are able to play well during the first 10 minutes, but that wasn't enough, sadly. Oh well, better luck during the World Cup!

I guess it's official, Holland is the biggest disappointment this tournament. I wouldn't have thought they would get absolutely no points at all in the group stage.

Of course, but it can give reason for pessimism.

It was close, though.

and then losing to Greece!

Who would've thought that Greece would beat Russia? Exactly... Also, Germany had never before won all three matches in the EC group phase.

But I'm actually not that unhappy about how Germany got their 9 points. All three matches have been really close matches. This prevents the players from becoming overenthusiastic. They know they have to give their best in every match.

I'm also happy for Podolski. He had his 100th international match today. And he even scored a goal, with his right foot! Wow...

I am really disappointed in the dutch side. Come on, ZERO points? TWO goals? I sure expected more from them. I even thoght they might win this group.

Fun fact:
Germany: 5:2 goals, 9 Points
Holland: 2:5 goals, 0 points
The exact opposite. >_>

While true Russia are no Germany. Germany are famed for not choking in big games and always making it through to the latter stages. Having said that now that my fiancee has finished destroying the Dutch (she drew them in a lucky dip at work), she is now going to support the Germans in the hope that the curse shifts to them. We can but hope (and Croatia should be very worried as she has drawn them as well...).

I am really disappointed in the dutch side. Come on, ZERO points? TWO goals? I sure expected more from them. I even thoght they might win this group.

Absolutely pathetic in every way. I really thought they would find a way to get through yesterday, and in fact I predicted them to win each and every game of the group stage. I can't believe how inept they were yesterday though- one of the poorest performances I have seen at a major championship from anyone, compounded by the incredible talent in that side. At least lesser teams come to the tournament and give it their all- it is shocking to see such a talented side throw it away like that through a lack of focus and effort, or at least a talented side that isn't France!

As long as England somehow end up playing Croatia in the Quarter Finals it's all good.

For tonight I have Spain winning 2-1 to Croatia and Italy winning 2-0 to Ireland. That'd mean Spain comes in first in this group and Italy comes in second. Looks like Italy just made a goal so for now I at least have the advancing teams right.

Also, I'm supporting Germany now that the Netherlands is out.

Well we got the latter one right and I was also right about Spain and Italy moving on to the quarter finals.

A bit of a shame that Croatia is out. They've been playing fairly well this tournament and I would've rather seen them advancing than any of the ones that came out of group A.

Always, except for the Euro 2000 and 2004. Also, what made me a bit pessimistic, is, that Germany hasn't won against Denmark in quite some time. Also, Denmark should've been awarded a penalty. Badstuber pulled the shirt of that danish player in the second half... lucky for him, no official did see it.

For todays games: Spain are through, but they can't be happy with this match. Anyway, they continue winning 1:0, and I'm afraid they will do this until the finals. Fuck them.
Italy: The next worse thing that can happen to this EC is Italy winning it. If the UEFA had any balls at all, they would've removed the team from the EC due to what happened in their league.

For tomorrows matches: Of course I hope that Ukraine wins and kicks England out of the tournament. I don't expect much from Sweden. They've been a bit disappointing so far.
