I liked the English/Swedish game.Both teams looked a bit shaky at times. It was a pretty clean game with very little rolling on the field looking like they had just been shot, only to be up on their feet 30 seconds later when given a free kick. I had a lot of sympathy for Ireland as I watched the best team in the series, Spain come on & have a bit of practice @ their expense, hard to watch, Irish football has a long way to go, which is sad. The Croats seem to think that to get the ball is secondary after trying to get the player first. They need a bunch of red cards to stop that kind of play. My prediction is that Spain should win, they are poetry in motion.Overall very high skill level is being shown & nice to watch. Mick B.

Yes Bob the Germans seem to have a way of rising to the occasion, but I also saw them lose in the World Cup. Spain will be hard to beat & I can't figure out what is happening to the Dutch, there seems to be internal team problems, is there ?, Mick B.

What a turn round, Russia safe and into the quarter finals.
1 game later the Russians out and the Greeks in along with the Czech Republic.

Thanks for the spoiler Peter................ Nice one!! >>:-( >>:-(

Sorry, Mark :embarrassed: I forgot that the time difference meant that you northerners wouldn't know the scores until much later - unless you got up early :-)

I'm guessing that you will know by now that South Africa beat England again, so 3 southern hemisphere teams now hold a 2-0 advantage in the 3 test series over their northern hemisphere rivals :-))

I've heard that Tranmere Rovers are finally converting to an all seater ground !  appears that they got a good deal on a second hand 3 piece suite.

England Ladies beat Netherlands 1 - 0.
A cheeky little free kick before the Netherlands were organised.
Well Done!!

Well thats Group B sorted.
No surprise that Germany going through winning all their games and Portugal as runners up.
I watched the Portugal / Netherlands game.
Although the Netherlands scored first they soon caved in and just didn't play as a team, they lost 2 - 1.
Ronaldo at last found his club form for his country and played well scoring both goals.
I was so surprised that the Netherlands just gave up even though they needed to win by 2 goals for any hope of qualifying.
Van Persie hasn't found his club form, Robben had a quiet game.
At the start of the tournament who would have thought the Netherlands "Nil Point"

Just looking forward to Tuesday evening, England / Sweden, get Rooney back and at his best.

Yes looking forward to Tuesday, win, draw or loose it should be a good match.  But I must admit I cant seem to get why as soon as the follically challenged comb over scouser has his ban ended he is automatically back in the team at the expense of one of the two goal scorers from the Sweden match?

If my memory serves me well, the last 8 competitive matches in Euro /World finals he has played for England he has been sent off twice, booked 4 times and not scored a goal.  His last but one competitive match in a final competition he thought that much of the England fans he abused them to the camera.  And lest we forget the reason he was banned was because he spat his dummy out and kicked an opponent from behind.   Yet we seem to think now he can play he must because he must score.  Based on his averages he wont score but will be either booked or sent off.  

Frankly if Rooney was missing from the team sheet I wont be as bothered as much as I am about Walcott now being out injured.

Got to agree Mike - when Rooney can replicate his club form when he plays for England - then he should be an automatic choice,
But he has to prove himself and more importantly his temperament before he is picked

Even though we haven't won the England Team look capable of getting better for the World Cup.
Now just WIN.

Predictable when it got to penalties.  No sporting happiness for England again.  Still Wimbledon next.  An an early Murray exit will bring the smiles back hopefully.
