should be fun now.
Germany and Italy are teams that traditionally have a lot in common, not only they have the most titles amongst european teams, but they are known for a very strict football, where getting the victory is really what matters, it will be a very closed match, i think, not much spaces given by both teams, and i think that in the end it will go to the germans, but with italy you just cant risk anything.
portugal - france, well, unlike against the netherlands and england the stats dont work in our favour, but we have a score to settle with them. two times they have eliminated us from the european championships semi finals, will that happen again, or can we do something about it this time?
it will be very hard for portugal, thats for sure, hopefully the resting that Deco and Costinha had can pay off, but at the same time, we had a very exhausting overtime against england.
one thing is for sure, if we give the same space to zizou that brazil gave we are doomed, and i cant see how nuno valente can stop ribery, he was owned by Van Persie and now by Lennon, what chances does he have?
we need a superb exhibition against France to keep the dream alive, but we cant really claim more from the players than what they have already done, being the only team in the tournament that havent won it ever.
