There has been a debate over men's fashion here. There seems to be a fashion among experts/journalist/commentators in the tv-studios to wear white sneakers with suits and tie.
Some say it is more casual and therefore a good thing. Some have reacted badly to it though and called it a breach of etiquette. I don't know what to think really. What do you think?

You don't wear trainers to a suit, end of. If they want to have summat comfy on their feet they oughta have YSL loafers with inlays or the best, Clarks' Wallabees. I always use the Wallabees to my suits, they look sharp and are very comfy.

If you’ve got a great sense of style you can pull it off.
Unfortunately for most people they don’t.

To wear trainers with a suit? Then one doesn't have a sense of style to start off with!winking smiley

So no draws mate? I bet Sweden and Croatia to draw, England will probably get the better of the Scotsmen.

Think it’s getting to the point now where teams have to go for it to qualify. Also fun fact - 6 days in and only been two draws so far :-)

Swedes were a bit lucky against Slovakia. 1-0 on penalty in the second half. There was a VAR situation (against Sweden, hands) in the last minute of the game
but the referee decided to ignore it. Sweden is, most probably, through to the round of 16 now (4 points in 2 games).

The second 0-0 game so far, England-Scotland, in the rain. Czechia and Croatia also drew, 1-1. Which means Scotland has to win
against Croatia in their third game in order to make it to the round of 16. A more than difficult task...

How embarrassing for Blighty that even on home turf at Wembley they couldn’t beat a team ranked 937th in the world.

Watching two more than disappointing matches by Croatia it might be difficult but not impossible for Scotland to beat them...

England v Scotland at Wembley was a good game even though no goals were scored.

Scotland should be quite happy with the way the team performed. thumbs up

England on the other hand, had better play a lot better if they are going to get through the next round of matches.

I really do hope Scotland will beat Croatia and make it through.thumbs up

France only managed a draw against Hungary in the group of death, 1-1. 1-1 now between Portugal and Germany - Ronaldo scored of course - in the same group.

There have been some other memorable moments also: The biting gate; German player Rüdiger bit French player Pogba in the shoulder. Uefa decided not to punish him however;
and the Coca-Cola gate - Ronaldo removed some Coke bottles during a press conference claiming people should drink water instead.
Apparently the Coca-Cola stocks dropped significantly on the stock market due to that.

Yeah France played very so-so today, from memory , I've never seen so much fighting spirit at the beginning of a game from the hungarian team.

I just wonder how much these great players actually have been playing together as a team. I mean, Mbappe and Pogba, or Fernandes and Ronaldo, or Kane with all the other great England players, they all perform great in their own teams, but when they appear on their national teams, they do not work as a clockwork at all. Blame it on the corona pandemic? I don't know. It is easier to play defensive than offensive.

I think they have less chance to play together as a team. Very disappointed as an Englishman with the game. Scotland are obviously very pleased. England must do better or may return home!!

It is easier for the big stars to perform in their club teams because everything is centered around them there and their clubs always resides in the top of the league. A big star like Ronaldo, of course,
always delivers in his national team also. But he doesn't have the back up of his club team so even if he delivers Portugal may still lose. Like they did today against Germany.
They are still the reigning champions though. Nothing can take that away from them.

Because the premiership is a well renowned football league and have many international fans, like in Norway, many believes that England should dominate the UEFA/FIFA WC or EC as well.
I'm afraid that is seldom the case. England won the WC in 1966. That's about it. Still they are, kind of, being portrayed as a top candidate to win before every international tournament.
They are still a good team though. It's just the fact that it's far in between actually winning something...

I'm not saying all of us should support them , but I've always supported England,Scotland,Wales,Northern Ireland and Ireland in international competition ............whoever they play.

Ideal semi finals for me would be all the four nations in the U.K. and England winning the semi, and the final.................. and thrashing whoever they play against. smileys with beer

Big effort by the Poles, 1-1 against Spain. Which keeps them in the tournament. Spain, with only two draws so far, has to win against Slovakia in their last game to qualify for the next round.
Germany - Portugal, 4-2, by far the best game this day.

Indeed a great game by Germany - Portugal for me the most enjoyably game so far.....

Maybe. But the German team has the same weaknesses it has had under Löw for 15 years. The instability of the defence repeatedly causes grotesque goals against. A goal conceded after a corner of their own should mean elimination in the knockout round against strong opponents like Italy, France or Belgium. The fact that Germany became world champions under Löw had little to do with the coach. His colleague at the time was Hans Flick, who is now his successor and won everything that could be won with Bayern Munich in the 19/20 season (6 titles).

For the moment, to me Italy is a serious outsider, then comes Belgium...

I long for the game Portugal vs France, both of them are legitimately the favorites of the competition.

France was very good against Germany and disappointing against Hungary.

Portugal cracked up against Germany so it's difficult to say if they will be able to scale up their game level...They will have to if they want to go further.

Okay, Italy won their group. 7-0 and 9 points. Not bad. Wales through on second place. Switzerland stand a good chance to qualify with 4 points on third place in the group.
Turkey out after 3 straight losses. I wonder what Dictator Erdogan will say about that?

Some interesting games today: Finland probably needs one point against Belgium in order to secure qualification and Denmark must win against Russia.
Denmark on home turf though, maybe an advantage?
