It's not like we were resting them, it's just that Podolski and Müller didn't really offer any offense. Reus had a great game, Schürrle certainly did better than Podolski and I don't think I have to mention that Klose was great throughout the whole game. Schweinsteiger was awful though.

What about Gomez? Eitherr way dude, its a pretty ridiculously talented team you guys have. Spain should win this but id dare say the next 2 competitions belong to the Germans. Too much strength in depth.

Gomez can't pass. He just can't. He's like a phantom, he only shows up to score and doesn't work defense at all. It was all good and nice when he scored against Portugal and Holland and he tried his best against Denmark but in my opinion he's just not suited for our style of play. We need our striker to be able to handle the ball and pass the ball like Klose can to engage our wingers. Just watch the Greece game, that's our kind of play.

I know we've won all the games so far, we've had probably the hardest path so far and I shouldn't complain.

Better than our forwards who can't pass or score! Nor our midfield for that matter! I think for a game as big as the semi you gotta go with Podolski over Reus. Also gotta go Klose over Gomez, the guy has an INSANE knockout stage goal scoring record. Would be nice to see him pass Muller as top all time goal scorer (I always like seeing players i've had the opportunity to watch live break records.)

Today's the day boys. I'm very nervous and for a good reason, Spain is never a team to sleep on. Such a talented squad. However, you guys can't say Ronaldo isn't having a dream tournament! Anything can happen today!

I like Spain, a lot. Just not as much as Portugal, let's go! Just got back from shop with some Sprite and Estrella chips.

I haven't even seen the thread, damn been posting in the Vbookie thread.

I've got about 80% of my matches right via 1st and 2nd place and goals per game. The Worst bust for me was Russia in Group A and Netherlands in Group B.

Fast forward to the semis.... Portugal needs to step up and control the tempo. They need to score first. Spain love to control the ball with a ridiculous amounts of passes, frustrating the opposition and creating small chances and converting.

I see Spain winning this one.

Germany/Italy... My countrymen are going to the finals to avenge Euro 2008 (Germany). Baring a small miracle, the Italians have been playing to inconsistent and have been known to sit back and defend with an early lead. I see Germany winning 2-0 or 2-1. Germany has too much talent and I believe it's their tourney to win.

They play great as a team and have the youth, speed and chemistry to derail Spain in the finals. I love how Low set the team up; each part is integral and can plug different players to roles which make them a scary force now and for 2-3 tournaments to come.

Great game so far. Portugal looks up to par. I have a hard time believing Ronaldo will play 90 minutes without scoring.

Why does every Euro 2012 game look like Bayern-Chelsea?

Spain seems to be suffering from Holland syndrome but with better defense...
