Since this is one of the few forums i know with a sizable euro population (sad, i know...), let's see if i can get some activity here. Personally, i'd be surprised anyone reads this before the tournament ends. :p

Some discussion points:
-Netherlands suck, and will be out in the group stage.
-Russia will defeat Spain the semi-final.
-England sucks more than the Netherlands and will lose their final group match against Ukraine.

Random predictions:

  • Italy surprised me by looking fairly decent.
  • Germany so far look impressive, but wasteful in front of goal - which could be decisive in a tight game later on in the tournament.
  • Can Russia be the dark horses while simultaneously everyone is tipping them to be the dark horses? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of being a dark horse?
  • England will draw every game with solid unimaginative performances, and go out in the group stage.

More important question: as Thouds is a crazy half Dane/half Dutchie, who was he cheering on in Denmark vs Netherlands?

Italy was a long time coming with the new Juve generation.
I predicted Gomez to become topscorer, according the internets he only needed 22 seconds of possession to score 3 goals. I don't consider that particularly wasteful in front of goal....they were a bit wasteful in getting to the goal though.
Russia..interesting. What are they then? Simply favorites? That's boring....
At least we can all agree on England.

I don't know what it is and apparently the Netherlands doesn't either.

Me and a coworker are apparently the only people who watch soccer (as we call it in "God's Country"). He wanted Spain to go all the way, I just wanted to see Germany lose. Meh.
