Was at the Belgium/Hungary game today. Great game, I was in with the Belgies and it was a fabulous atmosphere, didn't stop all game.

As for the game, my perspective wasn't helped by sitting quite low down at one end, but I can't help feeling some sympathy for the Hungarians, considering the enormous gulf in individual talent between these two teams I thought they gave a very plucky account of themselves for a big chunk of the game and although Belgium seem to have more purpose about them tonight than I've ever seen them have under Wilmots, and you could see there were more goals in it for them throughout, until that second goal went in Hungary were trying hard to play football, they just could not match the quality that Belgium had and in the end it told massively as Belgium tore them apart.

Nice to be there to see the first Spurs player score at these Euros.

France impressed me too earlier today, the french press have been a bit critical on their side this tournament so far but I think they've been very harsh, they lost a couple of important players before the tournament started and they definitely haven't quite find the ideal balanced 11 yet, and players like Rami, Pogba, Kante, Payet, are all on a bit of learning curve still, but they have kept playing, generally dominated games and found a way to break the bus parkers they have encountered.
