I assume most in this thread didn't watch the Poland/Russia game then.
You missed a sporting spectacle.
On paper Russia should have just brushed Poland aside and won easily.
As you might realise there are a lot of political tensions past and present between these countries.
The Polish determination was evident during the singing of the National Anthem.
Poland played with passion and determination, not the most attractive game of football but certainly passionate.
Poland went one goal down just before half time.
They came out in the second half with even more determination.
Then the Poles equalised, the stadium erupted, chants of POLSKI, POLSKI reverberated around the stadium.
They played well and deserved to win, but the final result was 1-1.
That to me is what football is about, passion and pride.
I was just so glad I watched the game.

I watched Australia play Japan in a World Cup qualifying match last night and it was an enthralling match - apart from the referee who seemed to have no idea what he was supposed to be doing :o At least he was not biased, he was equally hopeless towards both teams {-). However, his dismal performance didn't detract from what was a great game of football which finished 1-1, after Australia was awarded an extremely dubious penalty late in the game. Maybe the ref was trying to make up for a glaringly obvious penalty shout by the Aussies earlier on, which he bewilderingly turned down. He also sent off a player from each team, in separate incidents, and all the experts are still trying to work out what they did to deserve their red cards. Even the ref's awful showing did not detract from a wonderful game, played in great spirit by two closely matched teams.

The Aussies have had a hard week, having to play in 42 degree heat in Oman, then 4 days later and after a long flight home, facing up to Asian Champions, Japan.

I love football O0

... Football now what is it is it that silly game where 22 very friendly chappies ...

... watching 22 muppets prancing about a field ...

Tatata, not 22, have a look to the English team official picture !   Nothing's wrong ?

  

I heard, is it thrue or not that the 11th player Glen Johnson had an urgent need to go to the toilet ...  Yes it's only 10 men in the official picture of the English Team prior the play vs France

Anyway I fully agree with ACTion : Retires to workshop with a case of Jack Daniels and the complete Pink Floyd, Dire Straits and Led Zeppelin CD sets except that no Jack Daniels when working around my models.  Then the problem will be the Tour de France and the Olympics Games, hopefully London won and this games are not at Paris this time ...  :-))

Have a nice day, Xtian

Mind you, I suppose if you REALLY must watch a load of prima donnas with bouffant hairstyles  (or none at all) prance around like nancies, there's always the ballet I guess !

What spoils football for me are all the idiots that dive on the floor rolling around as though they have
just been shot,( at the slightest physical contact).
Then after wasting everyone's time jump to their feet and and continue in the game.
How some of them act they should be awarded a li-low for the time they spend lying down.
They really,really, really aggravate me

It's called cheating John  O0 - should be reviewed after the match and bring a mandatory six match ban  <*<- would soon stop it.

It's on in my house mainly because my wife watches it - I watch only occasionaly these days
