Well Ronaldo finally brought his club form to the tournament last night and got Portugal through, he could have had 3 or 4 by the end of the game. I had expected the Dutch to come close to winning the tournament after the world cup but they were awful.

Will be interesting to see if Italy can get through tonight or if Spain & Croatia will somehow manage to draw 2-2 so they both go through.

I was surprised by the Dutch's efforts as well. I reckon I could watch Wesley Schneider all the time though. I like that dude.

The Portugese are fun to watch. I love how much Ronaldo got the ball yesterday. He's brilliant.

Ronaldo is a great player, no doubt, but there is just something that I am annoyed at about him...I suppose it's his personality.

Don't like it much.
Ronaldo's extremely good of course, but sometimes it seems like all the strategy is "give him the ball and hope for a miracle"

I agree. They are a bit dependent but I reckon he's a good player to game plan around.

Ze Germans look real good. Question: what kind of German has the last name Gomez? That's kind of funny.

He's half spanish, fathers side.

We have several other guys with non german names and backgrounds. Khedira, Özil, Podolski, Klose, Boateng generally on the pitch, and i think Gündogan's on the bench.

Cool. I liek Ze Germans. I like Boateng. He's a fearless defender. My favorite part of the Euro Cup is seeing all the tats.

It is going to be pretty different once Rooney rejoins the brits. one two punch with Carroll providing the aerial support.

I'd like to point out that it is England that are in the Euros and not Britain, come the Olympics it will be Britain.

You should definitely play out some of the upcoming games and tell us the results. It will be like a prediction test via PS3.

I think it's the way he runs. Like something got stuck in his ass ;) ..... But he is a great player. I do think Portugal will reach the finals... With Nani, Pepe and Ronaldo, this team is a nightmare for every defense.

I apologise again for the poor effords of the Dutch squat. It will be a good thing to change the team drastically, before starting the next qualifying round in September. Get rid off the big names, time for some fresh blood.

What a goal by Balotelli!

He's not my favorite player at all, but you can't deny his ability.

Van Bommel needs to be the first to go, followed closely by robben.

Italy looked better last night and Balotelli scored a great goal. Spain did just enough to go through, they look as if they will be difficult to beat even if they are not scoring many.

I think France will go through and I would expect England to do enough against Ukraine to join them.

Agreed. But you could just tell after the goal he wanted to say something towards the team for not starting him. He looked mighty pissed for someone that just scored a goal. Not sure who it was that came over to him and out their hand over his mouth but that was a pretty smart move. It seems like the whole team knows he is a big child and they all just tried to stop him from doing something stupid.

I wonder if they'll riot over there in Ukraine if/when they get eliminated in group play.

I'm way too excited for this game. Watch England lay a turd and disappoint all of their fans.
There's something so satisfying about hearing a Doctor use the expression "lay a turd".

Love it!

England looks so passive I'm not sure they're even laying a turd - it's more like they're constipated.

perhaps taking the metaphor too far...

It's worked its way into my vocabulary thanks to you. Trust me, pediatricians need to have a lot of different words for poop other than "s---", that doesn't work so well around kids.

England is so funny to me, their fans think that their team is so freaking good, and they consistently disappoint them.
