Been watching this with interest, unfortunately England didn't qualify which was embarrasing to say the least. So far Holland and Spain look to be the ones to watch, i know Spain has a historyof chocking and haven't won anything of note since 1964 but they have some real talent on this team, and they have possibly the best strike partnership in Villa and Torres.
Two things are for sure though, one I'm absolutely delighted that France got knocked out and two...... i can't wait for the quarter final between Portugal and Germany, that should be one hell of a game.
I tip Spain for the championship though........
im tipping Holland but i agree with everything else u posted.
