Euro 2016 Thread

Recommended Posts

Didn't Italy have an 8 game winning streak against Germany in international play?

 

Read something like that.

 

Would be really cool to see Iceland knock off France, but, for the "excitement level" of the tourney, having the quasi-championship match of France/Germany in the semis in front of a crazy stadium will be better.

 

Wales/Portugal should actually be quite an interesting match. Pretty evenly matched teams, at least in terms of how they've played in this particular tournament. Still awaiting news of Belgium's coach being fired. Seems inevitable.

Well at least Portugal won a game in regulation. Blech, not really a fan of the 3 teams remaining. Go France I guess.

They had everything going for them early. Ronaldo got hurt early and they had numerous chances hit the post. Oh well. Good to see Ronaldo win an international trophy.

It's also crazy that Portugal won this tournament without winning a single group stage game.

They won one game in regulation out of 7. And in the old format they would have been eliminated for finishing in 3rd place. Funny how that works.

This tournament deserved Portugal winning the title. It was really an blah tournament for the most part.

 

My favorite part of international soccer is about to really get going now, the WCQs.
