All you Brits must still be partying, or still watching the other matches ....as no mention yet of England beating Ecuador.

Bend it like Beckham

Hi Chip

Bit remiss of us not to reply but I think a lot of us 'Brits' are still wondering when we're gonna get a performance we can party to ! - hopefully on Saturday, after the Portugal game - certainly looking forward to it

(Note re 'Brits' - I've yet to come across anyone who is Welsh, Irish, or Scottish who doesn't support England's opposition for the day . Sad, but that's the way it seems!)

Must say a word about the Aussies & sad to see them get knocked out by a dodgy penalty - played some great stuff over the tournament (Brazil game particularly) but just couldn't take their chances (Not that England have either!!)

Let's hope some of the superstars left in the tournament can really turn it on now & live up to all the expectation (come on monsieur T Henry, you're better than that )

Cheers

Ben

...while you've mentioned Thierry Henry.....
Another player from the French equipe is now officially immortal: Zinedine Zidane

Who would have guessed that France, after their performance so far in the tournament, knocks out Spain???!!!
But then again we will really have to watch out for that Spanish team in 2008 when the European Championship comes to Austria and Switzerland!

World Cup

And come on Roonaldo!!

I agree, here in the UK, the expectation is always much greater than the reality let's hope that Saturday is the day we show the world what we can do. I have to say that back in '66 no one really expected us to beat Portugal in the semi-final, but what a performance. How things have changed me and a group of pals were on holiday in the south of England and were running out to the car radio, between pints, to catch up on the radio commentry!! How thing have changed in 40 years.

About time Germany ran out of luck... (hallo Achim! )

Although I have to admit that the Germans played a surprisingly good tournament! I didn't expect that!

But with all the really bad stuff going on in the Italian Seria A, it's well deserved for Italy even more.
And don't forget - they have only received one single goal so far - and that was an own goal...

So who are they going to meet in the final?

My guess is France beats Portugal 2:1... and Italy takes the cup on sunday.

Let's wait and see.

Later,
Christian

Oh yes, all the mess that's going on with the corruption...hopefully justice will be done. It is forseen that Juventus will be demoted to the C series (third division)...and as I am I die-hard FC Inter fan, you can imagine how I feel.

I'm also predicting an Italy vs. France final. Zidane, though, has still got a lot to give (can't blame him for leaving Juventus a few years ago....Lord only knows what he saw going on......)

Yes, I think its a well-needed "push up" for the italians to get a perspective regarding the scandal.

Thanks Chris, you´re right. We ran out of luck. In the end, Italy had a bit more of it. I also thought that during the game both teams were mostly equal, but Italy pushed up for avoiding the penalties. It´s not un-deserved though, but its always bitter to lose a game in the last 2 minutes, isn´t it?

This is a young team and I´m looking forward to the European Cup in 2008. Maybe the Austrians find a way to come back into the international football world too.

Regarding the final match on Sunday, I expect it just as Chris said. Italy will get the cup.

It´s only a game though ....

cheers, Achim

i think Italy deserved to go through. just a little bit more invention i thought. Germany are always well organised and disciplined and that gets them thru the early stages.

England have good players in a bad system and if they had a tactically better manager they would have beaten Portugal. Taking Walcott instead of Defoe or Bent cost us big time.

Portugal are a poor team with bad attitude. the Holland and England games showed that. France will beat them.

I'd like to see Italy win it even though it would be nice for a great player like Zidane to finish at the top. Henry's face clutching cheating has spoiled it for me. He doesnt do that sort of thing for Arsenal.
