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

Re: Euro 2020

It was one of those days where everything was going wrong for NL. The young defender slipped up and let the Czech attacker get through on goal, and in a state of panic ended up swatting the ball away with his hand (red card).

With 10 men on the pitch, NL seemed to lose their focus while the Czech's remained sharp and wrapped up the match with two goals.

Belgium looked a bit shaky against Portugal, it came down to a great strike from the younger Hazard brother as well as some composed goalkeeping from Courtois. CR7 sometimes goes missing in the big games, this might have been one of those occasions.

Austria gave Italy a great fight on Saturday, almost getting the lead through a goal that was finally disallowed through VAR (offside).

One thing is for sure: there are no foregone conclusions in the playoffs. Every team has shown strengths and vulnerabilities.

Hopefully this will give the Nati some hope tonight!

Re: Euro 2020

Stefan Effenberg doing his best to show that the reputation Germans occasionally encounter as being somewhat arrogant is totally unwarranted:

"Speaking on German television channel Sport1, Effenberg said: "I think England will be our easiest opponents so far. In the group we had world champions France, European champions Portugal and Hungary as incredibly difficult opponents. We survived it."

"The English have not yet really had an impact on the tournament and the attack around Harry Kane - which distinguishes them - has not appeared at all. So I'm sure we will win the game.

In fairness, England aren't great but to say we are worse than Hungary is a bit tough.

I thought VdV's comments were far worse when speaking of how bad he thought La Roja are - that's a comment that did not age well as Pays Bas has crashed out

Big rivalry between neighboring countries event hough France is much stronger with a decorated history in football. Nevertheless, records go out the window when they play

La Nati's biggest weakness continues to be their inability to score, poor end product - yes Seferovic, I am looking at you!

Les Bleus continue to disappoint for me, despite being the WC title holders and enjoying probably the best depth of talent compared to any NT. They are deservedly criticized for being too defensive and resorting to counterattack football rather than exploiting the talent at their disposal to play attractive football

Switzerland have not been great in defense, particularly with Schär having had a nightmär tournament thus far in central defense. Danger man for me still is Embolo but France will be tough to break down even with Xhaka & Shaqiri - plus the Suisse have struggled to really create much width opting for Breel playing in the hole behind Sefervoic. Mbabu likely over Vidmer to put strength & speed against Mbappe

I see the French obviously as strong favorites but I know the Swiss have it in them to beat anyone if things are clicking. Nevertheless, I hope to sing Le Coq est mort tonight

FRA: Dembele out, Lucas injured (Digne likely to replace), Rabiot has a niggle, Lemar & Thuram injured
SUI: No injuries or suspensions

Hop Suisse!

Let’s hope it comes back to bite him.

Switzerland needs a new anthem, it is such a lame piece. Maybe with Albanian lyrics, at least some players would sing

True. And a game lasts 90 minutes. But France look pretty tame so far.
