    Those last two chances for Sweden were squandered pretty badly. Hitting the bottom on a volley is generally not the way to glory if you're within 10 yds

    My predictions for Czech vs. Greece - The must miss game of the week. Greek bankrupcy being a more interesting question.

    Again, tournament fails to flatter. The way France - England played wouldn't have been a bad friendly. Hasnt been a match yet that was worth remembering.

    Props on starting O Chamberlain. Roy showed some guile there. Parker was impressive but got blown out exhausted.

    Diarra is a monster holding midfield. And Benzema looked willing.

    Agree above, Ribery is a total bitch. Why no Kaboul in defense? He hurt or something? That dude is a monster defender.

    Tomorrow's games are a snorefest. Wont bother.

    Portugal Denmark and Germany Holland should be very interesting.

    Oh come on now, how can you not be a fan of 'who cares' bits?


    Was anyone else expecting Shevchenko to play maybe 45min max and do nothing?

    Shevchenko was channeling some straight up national fury. Looked impressive. Now if only that Chelsea-flop syndrome would pass by Torres too...

    +1 got home tonight and watched the game. Great stuff. He was on. Here is my take though - too old to do it twice. Sorry just don't see Schevchenko pulling that performance off again. It was great.

    England vs. France????? Really?? In the English mind . . . they have won the tournament. That said, France should have won the game so England have a right to view it as a win. Still Hodgson is a jackass and will be there undoing.

    Unfortunately I think this will prove to be the match of death. Russia win but overshadowed by extreme violence outside the ground.

    Why because he never managed Man Utd?

    Kaboul is injured...

    Knee problem but will be there in 2014 as main defender.
