What also sucks is that they won lol.

I mean, playing bad and losing is one thing, but playing bad and winning just sucks for other teams. Cause they still get those 3 pts that may help them in the future of the qualifying round.

We played poorly, we didn't deserve to win and to be honest, they proved what I've been saying this entire time, they need a striker. Losing Dasilva was bigger than anyone thought.

Oh and Major, easy on the Croatia jabs We both know that Italy has been more than lucky in its history

Anyways, let's go Germany!

Germany is a hell of a team. It was tough here as the g/f is Polish and I was cheering for Germany. lol.

When Poland and Croatia meet, it's not gonna be pretty. lol.

wah wah.

Poland outclassed on the world stage yet again.

Oh well, not surprised at all as Poland are a midle of the pack type of team and Germany are one of the favorites of the whole tournament.

At least we're playing Austria next.

On to the French... i'm quite excited to see what Karim Benzema will do.
Allez Les Bleus!

The Germany Match was good but lets go to the premiers for a second

Manchester City might pick up Ronaldhino and some other brazilians that are unamed right now....

i never knew they had that much money...

personally i hate MC since i am a Man U fan but its still impressive if they will be able to get him even if it helps marginally

How do you figure? If by playing fundamental means their robots then I'll take that as compliment.

The Pols played well and had a couple good chances, but the Germans back line was next to impossible for the majority of the time for the Pols to penetrate. Helluva save by the Polish keeper on Ballack's one timer though. WOW

When I call them robots it actually has good and bad connotations.

Good - They are organized, strong, good defense, barely make mistakes.

Bad - Not a lot of creativity. Not a lot of flashy players, than can do something on their own.

They are good, and not making mistakes is definetly the ingredient of success in this tournaments.

I don't know, Klose can create alot on the front line with the strikers. Gomez is still wet behind the ears so he's still learning, but the mid-field I thought did alot to create on their own yesterday especially Podolski. I mean, before Schweinsteiger came in Fritz too did alot of good things to create opportunities with crosses for the Germans.

I don't think your giving the Germans enough credit Bel. Mistakes aside, the Germans could of had 4 or 5 goals instead of just the 2.

How many guys on that German team are Polish? Damn. I feel for my sister's fiancee because he's Polish. Good game by the Germans. They took care of business. Kloze was absolute money. Gomez sucks. That dude can't finish.

Oh yeah, forca Portugal!

I read that - don't think he'll end up at Man City. He'll end up at Chelsea.. or a team in Italy (re: Roma, Inter Milan). The reason: He only goes to big metropolitan clubs that have vibrant nightlife (PSG, Barcelona)...

I'll chalk that up to inexperience on the international circuit Hoops. The kid can play, just rusty yesterday. You'll see.

Your not missing much on today's first game. Romania and France has been a snorer so far.

Looking forward to the Dutch and Italians at 2:30 though. Ga Nederland.
