Euro 2020

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)

Re: Euro 2020

Probably because it's really Euro 2021.

Re: Euro 2020

I thought about that when writing. Chose 2020 as this is what UEFA still call it, I suppose all the branding stuff necessitates this.

Re: Euro 2020

If football were as the 2nd half of Netherlands Vs Ukraine I'd be a fan. What a display of athleticism and skills. I think no player made a drama in the last 30 min, just playing to the limit of their abilities. Bravo.

For us beating Croatia is a relief. We have a terrible record against them. Germany will probably win while England go out heroically at the quarter finals. Given we only have to beat Scotland to get that far I don't think I'm being too optimistic.

I wish the Germans had as much confidence in Germany as the British always have

Re: Euro 2020

France looks strong.
Germany not as strong anymore but you never know with them.
Portugal and Spain unpredictable.

The only time I remember you being as crap as us is when you had that 200 cm guy who looked a bit like a neo-nazi (I'm sure he's a lovely bloke but he really does) playing as a lone striker around 2000. For the life of me I can't remember his name.

Otherwise Germany seem to always win everything

Carsten Jancker.

Also, last European championship for Germany was 25 years ago in that peripheral country I can't remember now.

As a 7 year old I really thought we were going to win. Sadly I should have realised that a team that can't beat Switzerland in the group stages isnt likely to get far.

I remember that entire competition vividly. All the rest have more or less blended into each other. All I can otherwise remember is David beckham kicking Diego Simone, basically throwing the match and Ronaldinho chipping David Seaman.

I barely have any football knowledge so I tipped England since they basically play at home

Re: Euro 2020

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