    Might be the first time we've ever agreed.

    I think Germany will win. 50/50 on Spain over Portugal. The Spanish team seems a bit tired of winning. They've had it pretty easy this tournament and the French provided no resistance to really see if this team wants it.

    I do not see Italy beating Germany at all. Then again I have a dislike (maybe irrational) for the Italians because they are so dramatic and the whole match fixing scandals. I am still very confused that Pirlo is only 33, he looks like he is at least 45. As we have all said, his penalty was fantastic.

    All the teams in the quarter final games looked like they were playing in 2nd gear. France gave up at 60 minutes and Spain gave up after 40. I only saw half of the Italy v England game, but it looked about the same. I hope the semi final games will be better.

    a lot of the experts agreed that this was the best of the quarters by a far mile.

    It was. It was an absolutely brilliant game unless you're a blind Englishman. Attacking was great (if not represented on the scoresheet) and a lot of players showed who they truly are (for better or worse). I was enthralled for all 120 minutes.

    That's true - but I didn't expect Greece to put up any real resistance at all. Only after Samaras' goal was the game suddenly interesting beyond, "whelp, the Euro quarters are on!"

    If you follow me.

    Besides the first chance, De Rossi was quiet, would have subbed him first

    Because he was putting shots on goal all 90 minutes? If Italy played to their strikers instead of crossing to mids, they would have been far more effective on the wings and if he had any support at all up top, he'd have probably put a couple in. When he wasn't alone in the box, he was placing some very nice passes and really showing his quality

    I saw Balotelli playing against Chelsea in december last year..

    He was very good in that game..

    He scored a good goal and created a lot of problems to the Chelsea defenders..

    The guy is a dick but he is also a great player..

    everyone has his pov. yesterday, he was sort of cautious, imo, and i was afraid that he will miss his pk. anyway.

    now up for sending the krauts home.
