you damn europeans, watching these matches live. i posted earlier that i could watch them via premium cable, but the station only shows a few matches (so far just denmark-italy, i think) and they're tape-delayed for the most part. i follow online at BBC news mostly.

GREECE-SPAIN 1-1

Congratulations to Greece for being the first team to qualify for the second round. EDIT - Sorry meant to say virtually guaranteed. Unless Portugal beat Spain by less goals than Russia beat Greece. Otherwise Greece are through.

Can't wait to see the Spain v Portugal game on Saturday. I'm favouring Portugal to win and qualify for the second round.

i am with portugal for the Spain vs Portugal. I think the Portuguese need that rather than another dissapointment. It will be awful to host the EURO championship and have your team disqualified...

Maybe it is because people in the US are not interested (unlike EUROPEANS) in football (soccer for you).

When the Pistons got the NBA championship we just heard it on the news. We didnt watch the game or anything. Do you watch the Mundial games in the US?

The England v Switzerland match is about to kick off and my prediction:

England 2 Switzerland 1 in a very tight game.

I see a big game for Scholes in the swiss game.
he's fit, he's probably hungry and the whole team knows they need a big win.

Scholes will nab a goal imo!


but OH MAN, Zizi really showed you Brits who's boss. Sorry guys, but he's in a class by himself.

Oh man,
England-Switzerland 3-0
Croatia-France 2-2

These should be good games, unfortunately I can't see them.

I think the England team looked undisciplined, unfit and uncoordinated today and if they want to beat Croatia they'll have to really shape up or hope it rains. "Heat" is no excuse for that abysmal display, they just looked liked a bunch of amatuers playing sunday football "after" a session in the pub.

Croatia looked like a very coordinated pacey team against France and I really think England have their work cut out against them. If they bin Michael Owen and bring on Vassels from the beginning they may have the injection of pace needed to conquer the croatian defence.

If that same team walks out on the field against croatia ("walk" being the definitive term) then I fear they will end up crawling out of the tournament on their knees after the match.

Come on Sven! get some discipline into that mottley bunch and kick their arses into shape!

the France-Croatia match was kind of sloppy. some fine skill from Zidane, as always. it was his free kick that brought the first goal, off a Croatian player's foot, and not long after he made an outrageous flick pass with the outside of his boot that should have been a goal, only his teammate missed the resulting header. Desailly and Silvestre proved that they're too old and too pedestrian, respectively, to play with the French and were responsible for the penalty and the second Croatian goal. And yet another defensive error let France draw equal, this time a lazy backpass that David Trezeguet intercepted and tapped into an empty net.
