One of the BBC pundits tipped Germany, Portugal & Netherlands to make the semi-finals. The last 3 are in the same group :lol:

Anyway, no-one in England expects anything from this team.

I like both Germany and Netherlands so it will be kind of hard for me on June 13th... if they'll both make it to the final I'm dead!

France is a good team this year, one of the best contenders for the cup.

If they get it together, they could be tough to beat.

Apparently England don't fear France
http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/18354764

Well, it's a two way mindset then! :lol:

France's problem might be in attack; only one designated out-and-out striker in Benzema. It will be tough for them but I think they can do it.

Olivier Giroud is a great Striker, he scored 21 goals this season (9 assists) and was impressive in the friendly against Germany, where he scored his first international goal. He is better than Andy Carroll...
I can't see England winning this game.

I think it'll be a really drab game where France sneak a 1-0 win. Maybe even 0-0. Roy Hodgson is entering the tournament with a very defensive mindset. We won our last two friendlies 1-0.

England is currently not in the position to win tournaments and that's why I think 4-4-2 dinosaur Roy Hodgson isn't the right man for the job. The FA missed the chance to make fundemental changes in their system and build a team for the future with new approaches.
The German Football Association didn't miss that opportunity after 2004. Signing Klinsmann, Löw & Bierhoff (later they added Sammer as technical director) was the bravest and best decision the DFB ever made. Everything improved since then and there is an incredble amount of young talanted players in the country. The new structure really pays off.

Yeah, England is about ten years behind the other major countries. By the time we catch up, there'll be another system...

I'm confident that we can do something, but we're lacking Barry, Cahill, Lampard, Wilshere and, for the first two games, Rooney. Big losses.

Most of the games will be on Aljazeerasport +9 and +10. I only have the first 8 channels.

I don't want to pay like $60 for few games :(

You guys get it for free in Europe, right?

In the UK, the rights are shared between BBC and ITV. Half each I believe; the last matches of each group game are on at the same time so it'll be BBC1/BBC3 & ITV1/ITV4 for those games.

So yes, if you call the BBC free :O

I just called 3 shops. It's $75 for 3 months to get the Euro games :(

It'll be easier to download the games for free :lol:
