Austra 1 : 2 Croatia
About Poland - i can't say about their form etc. because now they can win with an advantage, and they can lose!
On match Poland - Portugal i didn't imagine that Poland could win!
so they can be big suprise!

Germany For sure :p i think they still have that semifinal lose to Italy in the World Cup in the back of their minds and want redemption, But Germany overall is a very good team, I would like to say that this Euro 2008 team is better then the 2006 World Cup team.

I reckon it will be Portugal v Germany (winners) in semi final 1, but the other side its too close: Group C has Holland, France, Italy and Group D has Greece and Spain, so anyone of those 5 can make the final i think- its too close

Yup, i remember those 2 matches, you were quite lucky with the draw at Portugal (2-2), but your team was playing really well and if they keep it that way they will have good results in the tournament. The usual teams will be there to win this, Germany, Italy, France, etc, th Euro is a world cup with out Brazil and Argentina, everything is really close.
BTW, welcome back iceman 1.

I'm not sold on Germany.Most of their goals in qualifying were against San Marino and I don't think they have enough world class players compared to Spain,Portugal etc.I fancy Croatia to get to the semi-finals and Portugal to win the whole thing.Also I think both hosts won't win a game between them

hmmm, yes they beat San Marino (13-0), but they are a very good team- they have Podolski, Klose and Ballack- their weakness is the goalkeeper Lehmann, so you could be right about them not being the best- especially in defence

LOL Phil, you MUST be really bored, or are you waiting for the Canadian gp ?
That`s a detailed prediction you got there, good job. Personnaly i don`t believe Poland will loose 3-0 against Germany, maybe a draw or 1-0 ,and Russia with Gus Hiddinck ( not sure if i wrote it well) will be a nice surprise too.

This Romania- France match is s***- 0-0 after 77 minutes. Nasri is coming on though and he is a superstar. I need France to score 1 for my prediction to be spot on!

Joost, best game of the tournament so far, if your team will play always like this the others have serious reasons to be concerned. 3-0 to ITALY ?!? In their very hard group it was the perfect score.
