Finally some open games. This is the championship I've been waiting for. Glad Iceland progressed too! Now they're up against England, which should be a decent game.

Also, go Sweden. This is our last shot at progressing in a major tournament for the coming 50 years, since Zlatan will retire :(

Fucking mental! Best game of the tournament. Unfortunately that means the mighty Iceland are now playing the mighty England. I might have to ditch Gylfi and the boys and go back to my real team.

I'd stick with Iceland, you'll get to support them for longer.

Based on how poorly Portugal have played and how impressive Croatia have looked, that one could become embarrassing for Portugal.

Hungary vs Portugal
The most interesting match yet?
 

Definitely the most entertaining one. Interesting is kind of the wrong word, since neither of the teams really had to win.

Group F being a complete trainwreck has definitely been the most fun part about this Euro.

Missed the Portugal/Hungary game, as I was out getting my messages. Recorded it. Will watch it later. I caught a glimpse of it when I got back and it looked a really good match, at 3-3. Am looking forward to watching a really good match, or at least a fun one, with lots of goals for a change. Tonight, I'm watching Ireland get beat 2-1 by Italy.

Ireland decent so far - hope they can get that goal. Brady's deliveries are exceptional 

This ref is a bit of an idiot.

That was never a penalty, IMO. Incidental minor contact. And he threw himself along the ground like a sack of bricks.

Looked like he was about to take a shot. Absolutely no reason to go down. 

The ref is either incompetent, craven or corrupt.

Have the Russian fans kidnapped the Italian team and replaced them with the Russian side? They have been absolutely terrible.

Making nine changes to the starting XI might have something to do with that.

It's not that much of a shock. They got their 6 points, why would they care about winning this match? They could lose 31-0 and would still be guaranteed to win the group.

To be honest, both sides have been a bit terrible. This is a dull game. It's just that Italy aren't bothering to play.

Well, the Swedish have done quite good since the beginning of the second half... I doubt it will last long, but nice 5/10 minutes effort.

Gonna take a look at Ireland / Italy... c'mon Ireland, crush'em !
