I love having the summer off to be able to watch all of these games. Today was the so called group of death.

 

France 0 Romania 0

 

Extremely disappointing performance from the French. No creativity whatsoever and Anelka simply looked old.

 

Netherlands 3 Italy 0

 

This has been the best game so far. Holland were spectacular and their 2nd goal was the goal of the tournament so far for me. Italy just did not click into gear. They are far more adept at getting the lead and sitting on it. They are not a come from behind team. They let in more goals today than they did in the whole of the 2006 World Cup.

I have watched most of the matches and did not expect the Netherlands to win, much less handily.My son-in-law was watching in an Italian bar in Germany. I bet it got quiet there fast.

Spain 4 Russia 1

 

Spain looked really good, however, they do have a long long history of choking. Russia did create a lot of chances and were unfortunate not to tie it up earlier on. The Spanish defense is still a little suspect and I did not think Puyol had a good game. They usually go for a strong midfield but their decision to use two strikers payed off.

 

Sweden 2 Greece 0

 

This score has really thrilled me. Greece won the whole thing 4 years ago by playing boring and frustrating and totally defensive soccer and only scored on set pieces. They started today with the same mindset and had 5 at the back. As soon as Sweden scored their plans had to change and the game became interesting. Hopefully Greece will go out early.

I agree. I think Portugal should win this one on paper but they are two totally different styles of soccer. Czech Republic play a very physical game which may rattle a few of the Portugal players a little. That being said, Ronaldo, Nani and Carvalho are used to the EPL now so should not be overly distracted.

 

 

Czech Republic-Portugal could be an interesting match today.
