Great afternoon yesterday Cool

F was already a tough group, but with this Hungary it's even worse. Will be interesting to see who will qualify and what positions will be.

Spain vs Poland was awful imo, both teams play very bad football

England may not be great, but at least we aren’t Spain. They are painfully boring to watch.

Fair results yesterday

Italy deserved to win both match and group, Wales definitely second best team, Swiss decent third, with good chances to qualify as one of the best 4. Turkey fourth and by far the worst team in the competion considering players and potential (8 goals conceded in 3 matches and just 1 scored)

I was very skeptical, many teams were on paper overall stronger than us in terms of single players, but we are definitley one of the few teams that play as a team, and this could offset a technical gap. Top players could decide a match any time though, will be interesting to see how we will play more difficult matches from now on

I'm sure England will play out a draw with Czech on Tuesday.

Southgate instinctively doesn't take risks with his job, I find it hard to believe given he has some level of control over England's destiny, that he would choose a route of France, Portugal Germany etc over Sweden (sorry Swede) to get to the final…

Well, Scotland were outplayed tonight. No complaints.

The atmosphere at Hampden was a bit shit as well. Would have been class full but wasn't to be.

Missed opportunity in the game vs Czechs, who aren't great anymore.

We only played well vs England. Was nice to qualify for the first time in 20 odd years though. Laughing out loud

Definitely a missed opportunity for Scotland against Czech Rep, but the first game is always a trick one, especially if it's the first in 20 years.

Overall another group with no particular surprises

Sweden playing Ukraine at Hampden. Would be tempted to go as my wife is Swedish (not paying 185 Euro though).

Some good matches in the knockouts….

This is where the fun starts and anything can happen, form goes out the window and it's as open as Hanto's wallet at a custom order Visvim scoop neck sweater party.

Italy have been great but not really tested…fancy them to choke on a big penis when asked to..

Belgium v Portugal could be the big hitter Disco v Hanto Vis Off ….each has the potential to top the other but both could equally disappoint with too many red hoodies or all beige outfits.

England v Germany will almost certainly be hyped more than Orslow New Yorkers, to the point where those without will question 'Why do I not own Orslow New Yorkers?' then feel inadequate by not owning such carrot fitted treasures and subsequently buy into the hype, purchase and comment….'New Yorkers are sooo good best trousers ever!!!!' ….

Dutch and French will get the job done, Sweden will underestimate the Ukraine and have their pants pulled down…..Croatia and Spain will be in a private competition of who can pass it backwards more….with Spain winning but Croatia actually winning the real game.

The Welsh will beat the Danes who are more knackered than GG trying to reboot the Littlewoods catalogue home counties double denim special edition.
