I would love to see that fantastic footballing icon Ronaldo crying myself. The ponce. I swear he kept looking at the big screen vs Wales to check he was on it and his hair was ok.
If only Graham Roberts had been playing the last decade or so. How sweet it would have been to see Robbo shunt that big wuss ten rows into the stand.

Whats going on in here with the German love fest?

Allez les bleus!
Fuck les bleus :D
I'll want the French to beat Portugal, anything to see Ronaldo and Nani to cry in dismay.
Also, i'm sick and tired of the fuckers going on strike every time some poxy streetsweeper breaks his broom, they close the ferries and we get traffic jams so bad it takes three hours just to go get a loaf of bread. ****s.

France and Portugal didn't play well in the group stages, but well that's what tournament knock-out rounds can do to fortunes of teams..

Still wish to see Belgium or Wales vs Germany as a final TBH... Sighz..

Well, that was very disappointing by Germany. They didn't turn up anywhere near as much as they did against Italy.

I think there were a lot of contributing factors going into that though. It was a gruelling match for them against us and we took them all the way up to penalties. It must've taken it's toll on the German legs. Also, from a mentality point of view they were relieved to squeeze past a tough draw, whereas France were riding high after spanking Iceland.

On top of that Germany missed some of the big players who made them tick. Hummels is the main man at the back, Khedira's been such a great engine for them, and Gomes is the focal point. They missed some of the spine.

Edit: Let's not forget this was a home match for France.

OK, it was nice seeing Iceland do it at the end of their match against us but everyone else appropriating their move is a bit cringe.

It's more a generic European thing... Apoel Nicosia have been doing it for years.

Wait 'til Liverpool do it next season after an heroic draw at home to West Brom.

Germany controlled the game, but it was also one of those matches where they could have played for another hour and not scored.
