Germany shouldn't be allowed to compete with so many non-Germans on their squad.

Which also add to my next point. Poland would have an awesome team if all their good players didn't run to Germany.

Two titans in the football world are about to clash, buckle up boys! A lot of people are sleeping on Italy, they could really do damage to Spain with the patented italian defense and the mad genius Cassano is lethal on the counter. Roumors are Spain are playing with Fabregas upfront, surely as a false nine, but that's very, very interesting.

For a fotball fan it's pure joy having Pirlo and Iniesta on the same pitch. Two of the sexiest players in all of fotball. Not at all surprised Italy are doing so well, they have a very good, balanced team. I hope Di Natale will get time today, he is such a fox in the box.

As for Spain, they haven't been as shrude in regaining possesion like they are at their best. They still have tons of quality on the pitch, and have a great chance of getting goals. Maybe Llorente in the second half?

This game isn't proving much except for the fact that Spain have a horrid plan. Why are play playing with no striker?

Well their thinking is having Cesc as a false nine, dropping down between midfield and defense, swapping places with Iniesta and Silva and confusing the italian centre backs. But that is in theory, and the italian defence just seems to focused and disiplined to get fooled by this. I agree that having a pure striker on the pitch, preferably Llorente, would be the way yo go.

Haven't watched a EURO 2012 game yet because I haven't had much time, but I'm definitely gonna check out the France-England game tomorrow, always been a fan of France and at least this year they have a pretty good line-up and a damn fine coach.

Several sources claim England will be playing this line-up tonight:

Joe Hart
Glen Johnson - John Terry - Joleon Lescott - Ashley Cole
James Milner - Steven Gerrard - Scott Parker - Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
Ashley Young - Danny Welbeck

Excited to see Oxlade-Chamberlain from the start. That's a brave pick from Hodgson if true. That kid is really something. Still think this England team is a step below the french, and they should be happy with a draw. If Karim Benzema till have gas in the tank after a long season in Spain, he could tear shit up tonight.

Prediction: 2-0 France.

Good sources, that was exactly the lineup for the game.

It was a good result for us, but would of liked Carroll instead of Welbeck. We had no real attacking threat apart from set pieces. I think Carroll could of held the ball up and let more players join him for an attack.
The French did out play us England attacking wise and were unlucky I got to admit. Our defence is still one the best and with luck/determination, England can reach the later stages.

Great match between Ukraine-Sweden, enjoyed that match and nice to see an old legend Shevchenko display a world class performance. His second goal was incredible!!

Franklin,Gouveia,Maia,Kharitonov,Hunt,Liddell,Pari syan,Hardy,Shlemenko,Machida,Gomi,Bustamante,Evans ,Edgar,Hathaway,Bonnar,Murray,S.Carter,Ludwig,Pett is,K.Gill,Sobral,Mousasi,D.Cruz,Arona,Nogueiras,Co te,Ole Laursen,Kawajiri,Sakuraba & K1 Lebanner!

What a thriller Denmark-Portugal was. Thank god Portugal won, C. Rondaldo missed 2 1-1 opportunities.

Germany are trashing Holland right now. My Germany title, Gomez top scorer parlay is looking good to say the least.
