I barely have any football knowledge so I tipped England since they basically play at home
So do a few other countries.

Re: Euro 2020

Looking forward to Portugal - Germany on Saturday. I think the winner from that match may go on to win it.

I hope Timo Werner keeps missing sitters


Germany vs France will be good too.

Re: Euro 2020

Spain last night put me to sleep. Who is worse? Morata or Timo Werner?
Hopefully some cracking matches tonight.
Btw Coca Cola won't be pleased with Ronaldo

Nah! Hungry had parked double decker bus.

Portugal dominated from start to finish but it took them 84 minutes to break the deadlock. Ronaldo added plenty of gloss to the result but it was certainly a deserved win.

The sooner 'local' teams go out the better in my opinion.

Is there no thread on this? Cannot believe there is no interest.

Holland look refreshing today, a bit chaotic maybe. England were pretty disappointing. Switzerland as well. Belgium solid against a really bad Russian team.

Your highlight so far?
Most impressive team?

(And no, please no Danish hero stories)
Chaotic is right for Holland. Entertaining enough, yes, but chaotic -- largely because of De Boer who seems clueless as a tactician. As indeed am I, but then I'm not a pro coach. I think they'll unravel pretty quickly once they get out of the group (which they seem likely to do, given the others there). I'd be much more charitable towards England, notorious for starting slowly in tournaments. They had a patchy preparation for this game as all their best players played in the CL final, and were not available for the two friendlies England played. The performance was pretty workmanlike which is Southgate's stated aim. He's more interested in results than flair, and left out the most creative players in the squad - Grealish and Sancho, among others. It's not so easy on the eye but more likely to get the job done.

I wish the Germans had as much confidence in Germany as the British always have
It's not so much confidence as bitter memories. The Germans have not been great since the brilliant 2014 team IMO. Many excellent players but I couldn't really see what the team as a whole were trying to do in the game against France. I think Loew ran out of ideas some time ago -- but they'll still be tough to beat given the quality of most of the individuals. That said, the France game could easily have been drawn. But France looked fantastic -- easily the best team in the competition.

that's not how it works, Tony!
Maybe so ! But now having watched most of the first round of matches, I don't see anyone coming close to touching France. Even Italy for their bright start would have their ancient CBs exposed by the sheer pace of the French forwards.

But it's football and anything can happen, fingers crossed for the Swiss tonight!

It's the usual story. England will go through on 7 or 9 points beating some very poor teams then nobly crash out at the quarter finals (unless we get a lucky draw in the quarters and play another poor team).

Germany scrape through the group looking average then play blisteringly well in the knockouts.

Germany to win the competition.

We already know the draw -- it just depends on where England finish. If they win the group they will play the 2nd team in the FRA, GER, POR, HUN group. Gulp! Probably Portugal. Strangely, if we finish 2nd in the group we're likely to play Sweden or Slovakia - an easier draw! That said, I'm happy for England to play the better teams. It's an old cliche but if you want to win the tournament you have to play and beat the best teams. So it could be Portugal then Spain -- if we get that far. Arguably it's less painful to go out earlier.

I admire much about German football but I don't believe the national team stands a chance of getting far. Their likely route to the final would mean games against Belgium then Italy then France, before the final. A very tough task.

I don't hate him but I do find him terribly overrated with the lack of discipline to really reach the level he thinks he's already at. But that being said, I thought for the great majority of the match against the Germans he was MOTM - some of those passes, well I rarely see him do that at United for example. But, for Les Bleus, he really is different sauce

Of course, he did so many foolish things late in the match too that could've seen them draw which leads back to my earlier point about consistency or delivering until the final whistle

I thought France deserved the 3 pts but it was a very cowardly approach to the match IMHO, sitting in a low block just to unleash Mbappe on the counter. But of course it was strange to see Low set them up for width but neither Mueller nor Gosens stretched the pitch - certainly not until Sane finally came on

Germany spent the majority of time in France's end with more possession & shots but rarely troubled Lloris apart from the opening few minutes. I thought Low bottled the tactics but Euros is a tournament of attrition so they will still be in it

Given CZ looked poor against England I suspect it's more that NL are weak than anything else.

This is how they played since Ronald Koeman left. The first 3 matches gave me hope as it looked like a metamorphosis of the team but obviously, it was too good to be true
