Euro 2012

The European Championship starts tomorrow, being hosted by Poland and Ukraine. Anyone else going to watch this? Any team(s) you're rooting for? Being of Polish heritage, I'm hoping Poland will at least do well.

Definitely watching it. I guess I should be rooting for my own guys (Croatia), but seeing that our coach is a complete plonker and the atmosphere in the team is rock-bottom, not to mention they play both Spain and Italy, so their chances of passing the group stage are slim to none.

Also, I have money on Poland and Russia today, so fingers crossed.

Never been really into the Euro championships and yes, that's because Belgium hasn't been in it since they organized the stupid thing. Don't really have a favorite team, but I'll be rooting for the underdogs all the way to the end. But if one of the big teams has to win it, then Spain can have it once more.

I'm generally not a massive fan of sports unless they involve horses, and I apologise if I end up taking this thread off topic a little, but I'll be watching because I'm curious to see if any teams will actually carry out their threats to either walk off or not play if faced with racist abuse.

Saying that, it's ridiculous that the FA should also make that promise while one of the players selected for England is currently awaiting trial for racist abuse - FIFA, UEFA and the FA have long accepted a ridiculous double standard concerning racism in the sport, and it's about time they actually did something to stamp it out instead of condemning it with empty words.

As for my own team preference, Deutschland über alles.

I have no idea why Poland decided to sit back instead of go for the second goal. That penalty save by Tyton was pretty epic, though.

As far as I know my ancestry is English as far back as the Roman occupation, so I cant escape the hatred and claim some random euro-heritage... Go England?

I'm going to go with my heritage and root for Germany and Portugal, who coincidently play each other on Saturday.

Additionally, I'll be keeping an eye on Spain....but that's just because of my favorite Chelsea player, Juan Mata.

Haha, if I went by my heritage I'd end up rooting for half of Europe. I suppose Belgium and Portugal are the closest, but Belgium is not in and I'm not really in the mood to cheer CR7, so...

One would assume I would root for Portugal, but they don't deserve my support right now. I think I'll go for England...

Neither did I. Somehow, my younger brother predicted the Danes would win before the match started. I seriously do not know what compelled him to say that, but somehow, he got it right.

As sad as I am to see the Netherlands lose their first game, they didn't really seem to be trying all that hard for what little of the game I managed to see on my lunch break. I'm happy Portugal didn't win their game today though. I've never liked the Portuguese team's play style, and I think it would be somewhat amusing to see how far Germany can go in a Polish-set Euro competition. XP

I always root against the Dutch, so I guess it's been a pleasant surprise seeing Denmark win (Also, Zimling plays in Bruges so of course I'm gonna root for him). And then of course, typical Germany. Not that I'm a fan of Portugal, but yeah, I always root against Germany as well.

Naturally supporting the ever-dark horses, the Russians.

There's some real talent in that side that isn't overly well known throughout Europe.

Yeah, I really didn't think he would have such a big impact on Ukraine's games, but in the end he scored two great goals and was the best player on the pitch. No mean feat for a man in the twilight years of his career.

As for England and France, the less said about that game, the better.

Yeah our national team doesn't do well there it's a shame we've got really good individual talents right now for our squad: Kompany, Vermaelen, Hazard, Fellaini, etc etc. But no decent coach to bring it all together since Dick Advocaat betrayed us...

The Russia-Poland game was really entertaining. I would have been happy with Poland winning, but I'll take the draw.

Sooo the Czechs and Greeks go through and the Russians drop out. I... I really don't know what to think about that. Didn't watch the Greece - Russia game, but still I find it hard to believe that the Greeks managed to edge out the Russians.

Well, guess you can never rule out the Greeks. What a surprise. Was watching the Poland-Czech game which I thought would be quite a match because both had to win, but bah, that was awful. Don't know what's up with that Poland team to collapse after just 20 minutes.

To me this seems like quite the present for the teams in Group B, playing Greece and Czech Republic. Obviously anything can happen, but Czech doesn't impress me one bit and Greece is still an easier opponent that Russia, in my opinion (and in no way do I see them winning against Germany, which is probably going to be their opponent).

Yeah, the teams advancing out of the Group of Death got a real present right there. I couldn't believe Russia didn't advance; I thought they were a lock for the knockout rounds.

I'm almost completely sure that Germany are going to advance. I'm kind of hoping Denmark also get out of the group, since they've been one of the most entertaining teams for me thus far, but I don't think that's going to happen, unless they get really lucky.

The Irish fans were awesome. You don't see that a lot. But you couldn't have asked more from the Irish players. They lack the quality for a tournament like this, but they fought bravely.

@LDR: Austria never qualified.
@Ping: Yeah, also hoping Denmark will go through, but it's not going to be easy. Then again, if they can hold the Germans at bay for some time, the Germans could hold back later in the game. A draw wouldn't be a bad result for them and then it depends on what Holland does against Portugal.

The game between England and Ukraine is a prime example why goal-line tech is needed. I mean yeah, Ukraine was off-side, but if an official who is right there made a mistake, then it pretty much proved that FIFA is being too stubborn.
