Yeah, that was a pretty boring game. Czech Rep. defended admirably but 1-0 to Spain is a fair result.

Up there with Northern Ireland/Poland as most boring game so far. 

I recorded the Poland- N. Ireland game. A total sleeping pill. I've yet to put myself through the boredom of its second half. This game was pretty exciting, right up until it was apparent that the Czechs were going to do nothing throughout the second half but defend like a fifty foot wall of concrete, and then it got tiresome quite fast.

Forgive me Azzurri fans, but really want to see Belgian national team's victory. It's their time to show class on the European arena.

I love the Swedish national anthem. It would be a good fit when we reunite as the Kingdom of Scandinavia. They're playing it uncomfortably fast, though.

I am really liking this scrappy Irish team. I really thought that they were going to be outclassed, but it looks like they have some fight. It is nice seeing an underdog play to win rather than holding back for the tie

It would be nice if anyone looked remotely likely to score.

Why were so many people apparently under the impression that Sweden were going to be overwhelming favourites in this game? Zlatan aside, I can't see a great deal of difference and might edge towards Ireland for quality. They put up a good scrap with us and Germany in our group.

Wild. He had all the time he needed there to control and guide the ball.

Sweden's toothless corners have been consistently terrible.

Never thought I'd say it, but against the run of play. I'd been thinking ibrahimovich may have been kidnapped and replaced by a Frank Zappa lookalike.

Sweden only really tried to attack after they conceded.  Should be a good finish now as they both chase a win.

Why would a defender do that? How hard is it to not hit the ball with velocity into your own goal?
