In the spirit of all things Euro, I’ve found this clip of the top 5 goals of the tournament thus far and with a host of rockets to choose from I thought it displayed a descent show-case. Kudos to the editor. Other Euro top lists:UEFA’s Top 10 listSBS TWG Top five Euro 2008 goalsSBS TWG [...]

It’s been a week to the day since we last saw Ronaldo take the field with his green Nike Mercurial Vapor’s and it got me wondering if Nike were going to give anyone else a pair of coloured weapons to promote for the finals? I don’t know the answer to that and only time will [...]

He makes about 4 million dollars a year plying his trade in Russia for Zenit St.Petersburg, yet he has been a revelation in this tournament and now there are a number of clubs wanting his services no matter what the price. Rumours have it that he’ll be joining every big team around England and Spain, [...]

Such is a players ego sometimes, that it causes those watching to say “What the f#*k was he thinking!?”… this was one of those moments and it’s a little segment that I’ll be looking out for more regularly in the future.While conducting a post match interview, Colin Kazim-Richards, also known as Colin Kâzım or Kâzım [...]

This match is being built up in the media like it’s a final in itself. Both teams are itching to taste European glory for the first time in decades and it’s only a matter of time before we find out who will take on ze Germans in the final. Spain were the last team to [...]

Philipp Lahm rifled home a superb winner in the 90th minute to finally put away the Turks, who threatened to take the match into extra time when Semih Senturk made it 2-2 with four minutes left on the clock. A relieved Joachim Loew said: In the closing minutes, we were trembling and Turkey never gave [...]

Predicting the outcome of the previous matches has been tougher than watching Donadoni make a coaching decision that didn’t work against him… surely there are more talented Ities out there capable of coaching the team!?Anyway, looking at the game at hand the Turks are very, very, very under strength at the moment and will be [...]

IMITATION ALERT! IMITATION ALERT! The Russians, banded by a supreme tactician Guus Hiddink will be put to the ultimate test tonight and I think everyone in the world will be eager to see the results. Like an enhancing micro-chip in new car, Hiddink has instilled a Dutch belief into his young energetic team and worked [...]

It was an all out offensive in the opening 30 minutes by ze Germans, a Blitzkrieg if you must and it caught the Portuguese defense at sixes and sevens. I honestly thought that Portugal had the goods to make the finals this year, but ze Germans stepped up when it mattered most and uncharacteristically threw [...]

These two teams came into the tournament as bookies favourites and tonight one of them goes home. I’m backing Portugal to progress, mainly because they’ve played more consistently throughout the group phase and have more experience in their team. Germany on the other hand have played well in patches, but their opponents were no where [...]

The Russians turned on their thrusters overnight and absolutely blew Sweden away. Just like wave after wave of MiG attacks the Russians kept pounding the Swedish goals and the score could have easily blown out to 5-0. Andrei Arshavin and Yuri Zhirkov were absolutely unstoppable in orchestrating play from the middle, while overall the Russians [...]

Group leaders Spain left it late again to pinch 3 points from the grasp of the Greeks and round up what was a dismal tournament by the defending champs. Both teams exchanged blows early on, but never really capitalised till Greece’s ’04 Golden-boy Angelos Charisteas popped his head up just before half time and buried [...]

They lie, they cheat, they dive and make a theatre production out of every foul against them… and now they’re through to the quarter finals. As much as I hate to admit it, the Ities are great at tournament football. They’re naturally slow starters and just scrapped through the group on 4 points. Their experience [...]

Following the popular trend of ‘teams that have already qualified going into the final group match’ or ‘TTHAQGITFGM’ as it’s more commonly known, the Dutch, as expected, fielded a make-shift “second team” against Romania… which brought on the sad realisation that if Romania’s first team couldn’t beat the Netherlands “second team”, well then they didn’t [...]

The Dutch have had the most potent attack in the tournament so far, scoring 7 goals in two matches and conceding only 1. Romania on the other hand have struggled to come about goals and have also only conceded 1 goal… well 2 if you count the offside goal that Luca Toni scored, which on [...]
