    Lewandowski to fire the Poles to victory tonight. Think the Germans will win the tournament although since it was just a small bet I put on I've backed the French at 11/1. Expecting Huntelaar to continue his form into the championships and wouldn't be surprised to see Reus force his way into the starting line up for Germany.
    Should be a good month.

    Entertaining first game. Poland let up and never could get the momentum back. In the end, they were lucky they didn't blow it and lose.

    I can't believe Poland blew that game. Never seen a team come out so flat after dominating in the first half.



    Not a surprise pick, but GERMANY is the team to beat. Not sure if anyone has the firepower to stay with them

    I'm excited for the group of death games tomorrow.

    Russia looked strong. The back line for the Czech Republic looked horrible and the Russians took advantage.

    Was an old adage years ago.

    If you were asked to define soccer/football, you answered

    "It's a game where 22 men run around a field for 90 minutes and at the end, Germany wins".

    It is NEVER a bad bet to pick Germany.

    That saying is still very much in use, but you missed the most important part

    Agree. That was some putrid defense from the Czechs.

    You have both misquoted, so I have corrected it for you. ;)


    I think there are probably four teams with a good shot at winning, and then another four that have an outside chance. For me the winners will come from Group B or C as none of the teams in groups A & D are close to the top teams in there.

    However, there is often one team that over achieves, (Turkey made the semi finals in 2008, Greece won in 2004, Czechs made the Final in 1996 & Denmark won in 1992).


    Can't see it happening, but would like to see England perform well even if they don't make the Final.
