I wanted Holland to win but Russia did deserve it. Hard to think out of our group that they're the ones still going, but fair play to them.

I love penalty shoot-outs when I don't support either side. :D

Spain go through, Italy are out.

Penalties are great for neutrals. Italy are worse than us I think!

Glad Spain are through. Think them and Russia should be a pretty good game. Do fancy them to win it now.

Hell of a dull game, Spain deserved to go through, Italy seemed to play for penalties from the 1st minute, but thats to be expected from an italian side in knock out stages of a tournament, just my opinion.

Buffons fumble onto the post was pretty funny :lol:

When I was in A'dam, holland played and won, when I was in germany, they played and won. They are very like us, big on the footy and it really brings out the patriotism, stupid behaviour and places serving alcohol are packed and merry. Wanted Holland to go through... and Germany. Would have followed the game if I enjoyed it.

Apparently the Germans are as bad as us for getting the flags and waving them about when the football is on, then vanishing when they get knocked out (if usually later than us)

Hell yes. The cars beeped long and loud through the night on Friday, got no sleep at all. Couple that and the lewd remarks I got with slurred English in a variety of accents, and I felt right at home. :wink:

Well least not there now. Turkey versus Germany could well cause some problems over there.

I like how, after Turkey's captain finished his racism statement, they showed Michel Platini in the stand.

Feels a bit ironic to me.

Why's that? Missed the start so missed the statement too.

Turkey are going for it so far to give them credit.

Holy shit! 1-0 to Turkey! :shock:

Michel Platini's behaviour towards England practically borders on racism. It's only a matter of time before he calls us "rosbifs a la merde." or something like that.

Ah right. He's not our biggest fan, true. Mind you, a lot of people in power within sport don't seem to be. :evil:

Love that goal! Lehman's on his arse! :lol:

Oh bollocks. Germany equalised.

Wishful thinking. I get the feeling they can step up a couple of gears when they need to. Think Turkey will give their all and lose to some jammy shot.
