What's the matter with German head coach Joachim Löw? He used to eat his own snot but now he's down to this: [www.youtube.com]

He he, the norwegian papers had a nice headline back then: «digging for gold» grinning smiley

Not many goals so far, but some real great ones.
Moldric (Croatia) against Turkey is my favorite so far, though Payet's goal was a
of great beauty too.
And congratulations to Torres, who is ahead in our prediction game after 7 matches.

Indeed, Torres has done well thumbs up

Schweinsteiger's goal was a beauty, too.

(sssst! I think that as well, but ever since 1974 it is forbidden in my country to say
anything positive about German football).

Now the tournament starts for real for us Swedes. If we're going to win one game in the group stage - this must be it. We're facing Irland. One minute to go! Go sweden!

Half time. I'm afraid Irland is the better team so far. By a margin. One in the crossbar. I hope things will change for the better in the second half. Otherwise a draw is the best we can hope for...

Ireland is the more dangerous team. Sweden must get their game up a few notches.

1-1. An own goal saved Sweden from a loss. Ireland the better team overall. A better second half by the Swedes at least.

By the way, the Irish goal was a real beauty. Textbook football with a clean cut finish!

Belgium needs to tighten up their defense. Italy, as always, are lethal when they get the chance...

Ah, thank you Marco! Unfortunately I got caught already by a whole bunch of competitors... Feels like those early sprinters in cycling that are passed by the whole squad after a while. A good moment of glory, though! Best of luck to you and all who are in the game.

Old generations had Pelê, afterwards had Maradona...today we have Iniesta.
No one, ever, has passed the ball as he has done today. A master class.

Wow, thanks guys! I've been very lucky so far, especially considering my general knowledge of football. Anyway, things can change quickly once someone gets the the 5 points bonus.

I think I'll miss tomorrow in my country Portugal vs Iceland...

we could expect more from Belgium, it's a bit disapointing.
but Italy is always good during international competition so no big surprise they won yesterday.
They can beat any team. I see them in final.
Eternal Italy !

I agree, Jean-Gab. They looked very strong indeed.

Italy and Germany have impressed me the most so far. Spain and France will move up a gear. England have a big job on their hands against Wales.

I'm not a fan of the Italian way of playing football, but man, is it effective!
Belgium was nervous, I guess. Seemed like a lot of unnecesary wrong passes and missed
chances.
The Czechs played even more defensive than Italy. Hard to be entertained by a team that
plays like that.

IMO, Italy just has a different way of attacking, compared to Spain, Belgium and other teams. Quicker, and with higher tempo. Great combinations and counter-attacks.

Their defensive and attacking game is neatly tied together.

Of course it's more effective! Everything is done when the other team is off balance. That's when it hurts the most smiling smiley

The czech republic just parked the bus in their own box. A different game, imo. Italy had an attacking plan as well. A damn good one, methinks.

They will be hard to beat..

Yeah, I didn't mean to disqualify Italy, because I am impressed by both goals.
Really well played.
It takes a lot of nerves to finish an attack like these so brilliantly.

It's just that it seems a bit unfair. Belgium worked really hard trying to find a way
in the box. I would have appreciated if all this effort was awarded. Belgium was really
close a couple of times to make it a 1-1. But their attackers lacked the "coolness"
the Italians had.

Origi should have shaved his head smiling smiley It was close indeed.

PS: Hazard's gesture when his team mate lost the ball in the end there was NOT a nice one – and not worthy of a captain...

There is heavy critisism over the Swedish team's performance yesterday in Swedish media. I tend to agree. We used to have a team and Zlatan. Now it seems like we have Zlatan and a team. So to speak...

I'll tell you, Ireland is always a more difficult team to meet than one might think. Ask Germany..

You guys did fine, but Sweden needs to know its limitations, imo. They just can't outplay these teams. When they played direct was when they created chances against Ireland.

Just my two cents.




PS: And I'm 1/8th swedish, so I'm secretly cheering for you guys...
