I always liked Romanian football. Ion Timofte, the bomber, played for my club FC Porto. As well as that god-awful Nica Panduru
But I loved Hagi, Popescu, Raducioiu, and that '94 squad. Adrian Ilie was magnificent, too.
England r better then half the sides in Euro 2008, to say its logical that they r not there shows either A) u dislike England immensley or B) you know nothing about Football.
I cannot wait to see Ronaldo cry yet again when they r knocked out in the quarters or semis lol.
ok, so we have the first team to be knocked off the group stage. very big game last night, a draw would have been fair but as turkey played in the second quarter they deserved the win. especially since they scored the second goal with one man down. austria will probably follow them today unless they get help from germany
@pricey. i'll have to see that play again but from what i remember it van nisterlooy was clearly in offside. doesn't change anything, holland deserved the win, no doubt about it
I said it's logical they're not there, because the squad that eliminated them (Croatia) is better. No shame there, they have a nice generation of players coming along. But again: England is grossly overrated.
Croatia better? im not sure about that. They beat England 3-2 in the last game of qualifying but England in the 2nd half domainated and should have qualified. yet another goal keeping howler got us knocked out, not sure what it is with England and goal keepers making errors.
England arent overated, i dont think they r a top 10 national team at all but they have the players to be one of the best in the world.
England r def better then Russia who got in ahead of them. England were very unfortunate to have half their team missing for their last 2 games of qualifying. No Rio, Terry, Rooney, Owen, Lampard, Hargreaves. U rip a national teams 2 centre backs out and the defence of any country becomes weakened.
Good luck to Portugal though, have some great players and they will go deep.
Im just happy Germany lost. OH YEAH!
So Austria is still in the books huh.. nice game from Poland they would have deserved the win, that penalty kick came very easy. Most likely this game left the two teams with theoretical chances of advancing. Croatia is already qualified and Germany needs the win if they don't want to depend on the other game.
As for today's game, we're ready!!!
Schweinstiger is a massive loss for Germany's next match as well.
Robben passed fit to play aganst France, Robben vs Ribery would be awesome to watch it the coaches do the right thing and play them on eachother.
Gotta get up at 1am for the Italy vs Romania game, have money on it and Luca Toni and Buffon r in my fantasy side and then Holland vs France!!! AWESOME WEEKEND OF SPORT COMING UP.
England is very talented and it's a shame that they did not make it to the Euro Cup. England is the founder of the sport and will always have respect in my books.
Portugal and Spain were my choices before the tourney started and I am sticking with them. Holland is playing magnificent futbol. Italy is still alive, Germany has 2 great strikers in Lucas and Khlose, France a big dissapointment thus far. Great Cup!!
My team Colombia will be playing a world cup qualifier this weekend!!If Colombia qualifies for the world cup, I am going to south africa!!

Man, wasn't Holland vs France one of the greatest matches in recent memory?
Wonderful display of attacking football. Unbelievable.
Holland has me convinced now. Damn. An absolute offensive machine, surely the best attacking team in the tournament.
Oh, and France sucks.
Well, they don't REALLY suck, (they actually played well, despite conceding 4 goals) but being Portuguese, France will always suck in my book.
Romania has actually a good chance, since they'll play against Holland's second-tier squad. That would be a great feat, leaving both World Cup finalists behind.
my italian brothers have to step it the hell up. if it wasnt for our goalie BUFFON we'd be out of this **** right now. Italy get off ur ass stop missing easy shot oppurtunities and blow out the next **** team u face...F holland and romania they can suck my nuts
