Italy or France, because they are winner teams and not like Spain or England who already wait for about half a century for an international title, but at least you could say "they are long time overdue for another big achievement"... but actually I don't think so... :shrug:

Germany? don't think they have a chance to win right now, but at least they mostly did the best possible in most of the tournament they showed up (WC 1998 and EURO 2000 excluded of course which was pathetic with an overaged team :mad: )
the thing I like this time on the German team is that they have build a younger team with new faces, that's important not to make the mistakes of 1998 and 2000.

The Dutch have no chance, unless miracles happened since the last warm-up match...

I'll have to go for either England, Italy or France (if they start playing better than they did yesterday :()

England cant beat Sweden for love nor money so it wouldn't be a good tie for them at all.

france definitely. they have a high moral cos the victory against England (btw ZIZOU -> :bowdown: Becks -> :nerner: ) and now that their moral is great I don't think any1 can stop them.

Spain is also a strong team and they're my faves after France and the Netherlands.

i have a question realted to Totti: am I the only one that reckons Totti looks like Legolas with that hair-do?

Crazy_Fool
06-15-2004, 01:39 PM
I think Italy may win it, but only if Trapatonni realises that Alex Del Piero is finished, and the kid Cassano has to play. Another player who must be in is Gattuso, the heart of the team. Italy have so much talent, its just a shame their manager has no idea what to do with it all. Ie I cannot understand what Pirlo, arguably the most talented player in the squad, save Totti, is being wasted on the bench.

I think Totti could well get sent home, they havent decided the punishment for spitting at another player yet but they take it very seriously and so they should its disgusting and foul and such a piss poor example how to behave to young kids watching.

Last time a player did it in premiership they got 8 game ban, its such a low and revolting thing to do, if he had spat at me I would have knocked his teeth out.

Used to like Totti before that but got no respect for him now.

Instant justice. GOOD

A VETERAN firefighter who led a mob of English soccer yobs on the rampage in Portugal was jailed for two years last night.


Birmingham City fan Garry Mann, 46, shamed the nation by urging thugs to attack police in the Algarve resort of Albufeira.

That's horrible. But also horrible to me is that from the start, my favourite teams Spain and Portugal were grouped together, but now they have to face each other in their next match with Portugal's life on the line! Just like two top players in tennis having to face each other in the semis or before that! Injustice!! :(

Did you just see clip ITV showed of Zidane vommiting a little just before he took penalty against England?? It reminded me of Sampras at us open in 1996....pretty impressive that it didnt stop him scoring.

yes you were right, it was not really the best Dutch match.. and didn't understand why the coach changed the best player..but did you see it this morning, the coach was BOOHOOOed!

Dick Advocaaat is a really stupid 'dick' ;) ! Why the hell did he change Robben with Bosvelt??? And why didn't he send Sneijder in? Nedved was brilliant! Cngrats to the Czechs they were great but I hope that this loss won't allow those Germans to qualify and send the Dutchies home! The German team absolutely suckd! Latvia should've won! The ref refused two or three penalties for the Latvians.
Vamo Espana! I'm sorry that Spain and Portugal can't qualify both (I mean they can if the Russians beat the Greek but that is as likely as Hussein becoming the president of the US) But I prefer the Spaniards.
