good luck anyway
last night's match (england-italy) had to be the worst of the tournament. the only goalless draw.
but the best team won.
what is it with england and penalties?
young and cole looked nervous before their kicks. they looked like they were going to miss.
portugal need ronaldo to play out of his skin if they are to get a result
and i cant see the italians beating the germans
so im predicting a spain/germany final-with the spanish triumphant again
so im looking good for a 1st/2nd in our fantasy football league.
anyways its given an extra interest in the tournament overall and a bit of fun as well
good luck trying to catch me up!!

This is what English football has become. Our limitations laid bare to the point where so long as the “bulldog spirit” is on show the players have done all that has been asked.
It is never going to be enough to win a major tournament. At the next World Cup we will be having the same post-exit discussion about our inability to retain the ball and do anything more than try to stop the opponent rather than impose ourselves on them – and it will be doubly difficult in Rio.
The 38 per cent possession statistic against Italy as England exited Euro 2012 was damning and embarrassing. We will never beat a top nation in a tournament playing like this.
