What a frustrating day. Didn't really like any of the games, however I am glad that Czech Rep. won.

How did Portugal do? I've been working all day so I missed the UFC and both of these games today.

They weren't their usual selves for most of the game. Ronaldo did shit all. They had a few good spurts of attack but other than that, Turkey did a fine job of keeping them at bay. And I think if Turkey weren't their own enemy today, they could have scored a couple of goals. They had so many counter-attack chances only for them to screw it up every single time.

That sucks they didn't play well. It sounds like it wasn't a good day for both of the games. Too bad they both didn't play better so that it was a more entertaining game.

The Swiss/Czech game went exactly how i expected, It wasn't to bad.

I hope Frei's injury isn't bad enough to end his Euro 2008, He looked dangerous in that match.

I don't know why the Swiss didn't put Pascal Zuberbuhler in goals.

It sounds like i didn't miss that much in the other game.

I really enjoyed those games man. What a shame with that penalty kick in the Croatia/Austria game.

Today's games are gonna be insane (hopefully). I hope Italy doesn't play their usual negative football and challenges Holland.

Told you . Looking forward to the Italy-Netherlands match, right now I'm bored as ****. How is France doing?

Edit: Wow France only got a draw against Romania, I don't like their chances.

This ******* sucks. Like you said, France just got a Draw against Romania. And yes, if they're gonna keep playing as shit as they did in that match, they might as well bow down and beg Italy for mercy. But I've still got faith in them. Henry wasn't in it, and he could provide a very strong link in the tougher games. Something's up with his back though, so that's kinda worrying.

Anyway...just about to go watch Italy - Netherlands now.
I've got 0:1 to the Netherlands, just because I can't stand watching Italy win again. They really got on my last nerves in the world cup with their friggin' defensive play right after scoring a goal, and they somehow always managed to claw in the win in the last few minutes of the match. We'll see what happens tonight though. My mind says they're gonna win, but I'm praying Holland beat them.
