Spain are deserved favourites, Italians if they get out of the group will be dangerous as always. Germans despite loss to Austria are always tough to beat and if they get a game to Penalties they will win, they just have that mental toughness. Dutch play great football, but in the clutch games they lack the composure.

Would be surprised if anyone else is in the Semi Finals, forget England. Despite the SKY hype the key players in the Premiership are all foreign not English...

We'll be tough to beat, but Trapp is like Jack Charlton before him he will just send out his team set up to not embarrass him. So am not expecting any performances to set the heart racing. If we beat Croatia we have an outside chance of getting out of the group, anything less and we can forget it. You have to get something out of every game to survive.


Was in Portugal for the last two weeks so not much time spent online, happy enough with my predictions.

The Portuguese will be dissapointed but with an attacking line of Ronaldo and only Ronaldo their failure wasn't a surprise. Postiger - hello, his club record is terible for a top class striker (a goal evey five games)and Hugo Almeida another spoofer. Don't get me on to Ronnie Light (Nani), all show and no go. As much as a d*ck Ronalado can be I actually felt sorry for the guy having to carry the whole Portuguese attack and the hopes of the Portuguese nation and very nearly getting them to a final if only Nani and Alves hadn't messed up the Penno lineup, they should have won in normal time they had Spain in their pocket and the Spaniards only improved in extra time once they realised they might get out of jail....

Felt sorry for the Italians, a team that prides itself on defense losing Balzaretti early hurt them badly and was very disruptive never mind the injury to Motta that forced them down to 10 me when two goals down and 25 minutes to play.

Spain were clinical with the ball, first two goals were absolute class. Jordi Alba's pass run and shot were absoutely top drawer and make a mockery of the 14€m Barca are paying Valencia (and of course dozens of Premier League transfer prices, name one PL left back capable of scoring that goal)......

Not a chance Cole would make the run into the box, never was his game. He was quick alright but likes to stay wide and put the ball inathe box...
