Hungary would have benefited tonight from a history of colonialism. It’s always tough for the smaller nations to compete with the historical genocidal nations like France, England, Belgium etc. maybe if Scotland decided to bring proper supplies to their Panamanian colony instead of pianos they would be a world class footballing nation. Anyways as I said before the start of the euro. Format is awful- way too many nations and top four best third place team crap is bad. Quality of the games are awful for the most part.

Top half of the draw is crazy

Belgium v Portugal
Italy v Austria

France v Switzerland
Croatia v Spain

Bottom half is wide open:

Netherlands v Czech Republic
Wales v Denmark

England v Germany
Sweden v Ukraine

Whoever wins at Wembley will really fancy a run to the final. England-Wales semi is possible.

:lol: It’s possible but I think Denmark will comfortably beat us and Germany edge England. Hope I’m wrong obvs.

Was surprised Ukraine didn’t properly go for it against Austria even when losing but in hindsight, turned out well for them, assuming it went to GD, I believe one more goal conceded may have knocked them out as the next best 3rd team - and obviously Ukraine have a much easier path than Austria do too

Must be frustrating almost being punished for finishing higher up in the group!

Yep through on GD but would have needed to be 2 worse to go out as 1 worse would have seen them through on goals scored. 3pts and an OK GD is often enough, so Ukraine had to balance getting the point that would all but guarantee qualification against letting in a 2nd or 3rd and going out.

Similar to when we went down from the PL and Fulham stayed up - we let in late goals in both games chasing an equaliser, but if we hadn't done so, the swing in GD would have saved us.

He was fully dressed. He was more of a pitch-invader than a streaker.

Anyway, St Pauli, I am sure you have had to answer this question a million times, but are you more for England or more for Germany in the next round?

I really struggle to bother to watch later rounds of these competitions if I don't have a dog in the race, so was hoping they'd avoid each other first and foremost.

I'd say I'd rather Germany won, but that's not actually because I prefer one side or footballing nation over the other.

The main reason is that English fans, having had nothing to cheer about since 1966, and without ever a real genuine hope of winning an international tournament, need to find their little victories were they can. These appear to be against Germany.

Many a time I've been sent SM messages by England fans about the time they beat Germany 5:1. In the meantime Germany won a world cup, beat Brazil 7:1 in Brazil, and have made it far in international competitions.

I'd like Germany to win, not because I prefer them, but simply to avoid the inevitable jingoistic tabloid crowing and 'yeah but we beat you at Wembley in '21 and then crashed out to Sweden' whenever the question of who is the better country at football, Germany (4 world cups, 3 Euro championships) or England (1 world cup, 0 Euro championships).

And no, the same crowing will not take place in Germany if they win, because the Germans don't really see England as a rival, they're just another European team to the Germans. They hate the Dutch.

Every tournament you get a team who look great in the group stage and crash out early in the knock outs. I'm saying it will be Italy, losing to Belgium in the quarters. Peaked too soon.

It is a true rivalry on the pitch (off the pitch they quite like each other). Neither have much interest in the English. Could well be set up for a semi final showdown.
