Well, a pretty bad day for my bets =(.

I'm glad to see that both Italy and England are playing well tough.

Tomorrow bets:
1x0 Greece -> Pretty hard one to predict.
3x1 Russia -> Since they are playing home and drawed their first game, I expect Poland to play more offensively and score at least once.

Edit: I can't change my bets, but I now believe in and cheer for a Polish win, Russian fans are always causing trouble.

The best thing about that Greece v Czech game was the ref being shoved out of the way and falling over.

Day. Made.

If there's any match that I'm eagerly anticipating the anthems, it's the Poland - Russia match coming up.

This match could very well get ugly if the ref makes a stupid or blown call, hopefully it won't come to that.

I'm already satisfied with this Euro. Everyone I talked to before the game was saying something along the lines of "We'll be humiliated by Germany" and they played well so i'm satisfied, they can come home with their heads held high now. Personally i'd say a tie would've been the fairest result but as always that's debatable. Now as long as they don't make fools of themselves against Denmark or Holland, it's fine.

80% of the Portuguese population had already given up on this Euro before it started after we lost 3-1 to Turkey on a private game one week before the game with Germany. Actually managing to give Germany a tough time is good enough considering that.

My predictions for the winner are obviously with Spain, but I'm not so certain since they don't have Villa and the team seemed weaker than that of 2 and 4 years ago. But I'd still bet on them. Nuestros Hermanos (a friendly way we refer to Spanish people in Portugal) all the way... I guess...

Russia playing home? What does that mean? Because I understood that they're playing at home, and they didn't drawned, they won first game (and quite spectacularly)

I just cant wait netherlands v germany game

It was rather shocking how netherlands dominated the ball possession but couldnt even shoot the ball to the net , they just need a good playmaker ... not van persie , but huntelaar

since its the germans v dutch , i guess its ok to lose other games , but definitely not this game

3x1 Russia -> Since they are playing home and drew* their first game >>,<< I expect Poland to play more offensively and score at least once.

I didn't watch Greece's game but I think they are doomed, they don't have the offensive power to defeat Russia.

Poland surprised even I, who believed in a Polish win. I was expecting a more even game, but Poland, opposed to it's last game, came stronger on the second half and almost did it.

Tomorrow bets:
3x1 Netherlands -> With both teams with so much potential, there are very few things to base your prediction on, I will be cheering for Germany, but I think Netherlands powerful offense would make it win this match 6 out of 10 times.
2x1 Portugal -> It all depends on how Portugal will use C. Ronaldo. If they treat him like an coadjuvant, as they did last game, they may not be able to break Denmarks defense as many times as they need, when you have a player like him, you must make him the center of your offense..... but there is still the fact that CR7 tends to disappear on important matches...

I can't remember the last time I shouted so much xD
Even if Poland didn't won, they still did a good job and got a draw.
Cheers to fellow fans from around Spodek ;DD

Now I'm waiting for Italy - Croatia and really hope for a Squadra Azzurra win ^^

I really hope that Germany will go against Spain. That's a match really worth seeing. All the other teams aren't as good compared, but the Euro Cup is harder than FIFA, so it is better? GERMANYvs.SPAIN is still my ideal match. Spain has a lot of good players, but they're out on injuries. Germany has a younger team. Germany builds up momentum as it goes along-they like playing it slow.

Today is do or die for Portugal.
We did ok, more or less, against Germany, but if we don't win against Denmark then it's over. I'm still hopeful and say we win 2-0, but with our team you just never know.
So we either wake up and play like we should, or we go home and make the players and the federation pay.
All that drama, all that party, all the expectations... Why do we have to rely on that? The league should enforce more rules, there are teams with 9 or 10 foreigners in the starting lineup. Maybe if we invested more in our guys, portuguese players, we could have better outings in international competitions. But these are my 2 cents.

Cristiano Ronaldo saved by Varela. And I'm sad for Denmark's defeat, that is one of the downsides of my betting, I want to win the prize, but sometimes it means I have to cheer against...Well, the team i'm cheering for, if you know what I mean.

Germany tactically superior to Netherlands, great game from Schweinsteiger.
Van Bommel can't be on the first team anymore, he is not the player he once was, Van Der Vaart should play instead. Affelay also should start on the bench, I have never seen him playing well for Netherlands.

I just noticed that there is still a possibility for Germany not to qualify, as there is still a way for Netherlands to go. Next round will be insteresting.

Tomorrow Bets:
2x0 Italy -> And hopefully another great game from Danielino
4x1 Spain -> Ireland sucked last game

Wow... I guess I've learnt (or probably forgotten) today to never count out the Greeks, no matter what the circumstances be.

Must be something in their culture that makes them so resilient and strong.

Gutted for Poland and Russia. Just wasn't the Russkies' day in the end. They had their chances, but couldn't convert on any of them.

Poland just forgot to show up for the second half, kinda like they were against Greece imo.

The way things are going I wouldn't be too surprised if you faced Denmark.

I stopped betting, it was taking out some of the fun.

Cheering for Netherlands and Denmark. If Netherlands can get their finishing/last passes right they will be contenders, Denmark will hardly do it, but they are a capable team and are strong willed.
