Should be better than the last two.

Already got a bet on cards. Can see a hot-head like Quaresma or Pepe doing something stupid in this one.

After all my moaning about England I am beginning to think we may win this as we are the only team who wants to attack apart from France. Spain play at a snails pace and I do find them dull. The Germans efficient but rarely exciting. Italy counter attack. Based on fact we seem to want to attack I think we should deserve to win

Maybe refs should give a dubious pen to the team that gets in to the opposing pen area first. At least one team would have to attack. Assuming pen is converted!

There isn't anything wrong in 'parking the bus' when you are playing a team that wants to attack you (and who are normally a better team than you). If you can counter attack quickly and efficiently you are simply playing to your strengths.

Unfortunately in the 3 matches today there has not been one team in any match who were much better than the other team and would therefore take the option to attack. The teams have simply cancelled each other out.

When you have Ronaldo in the team you will always have a chance. That side of the draw is knowhere near as strong as our side so they could get to the final as Belgium are really the only other decent side on that side of the draw.

Yep, opened them up with a good run from the other guy and a quick pass. Wish Palace played a few more of those type of sideways passes.

Portugal aren't as bad as people are saying, could win the tournament.

They really are mate they are ******* dire to watch. But I do agree with you get your money on this lot to win it. Slimy b@ll@x will see them through against Wales

F@@@ know's how a team can be in the quarters without even winning a game yet.

Modric was poor tonight I felt and Perisic was a greedy useles @@@@.

Just feel like a rant as these euros have been extremely disappointing. Saw someone post on here earlier that England could actually win this with the standard in show so far. That may be stretch too far but I haven't been impressed by many yet and hate this no lose attitude.

Yep, but this year there aren't any great teams. 3 games to win it and I wouldn't put it past them.

Portugal or Poland guaranteed a semi-final place now.

A goal against Slovakia would've made our route so much easier, but it is what it is. Beat Iceland and we're only two games away from the final.

Anything can happen, and Iceland will probably make sure it does.

After 48 hours anticipation that was a thoroughly dull day of football.

I'm banking on France vs Ireland being the stand-out game. If it's rubbish I don't hold out much hope for the others.

Count yourself lucky. I endured extra time of Poland Vs Switzerland and Wales Vs NI when I got home earlier as well :wallbash:

Even the wife and eldest had enough and went into the other room to watch Adele.
