euro 2008...

Usually around this time we would be suffering from football withdrawal syndrome as the EPL season is over and it won't start again till August. Thankfully this year we have Euro 2008 which gives us a packed schedule throughout June.

This round the tournament is being jointly hosted by Switzerland and Austria. We are almost towards the end of Round 1 where the Oranje opened a can of whoop ass on the Azzurris, Podolski slammed 2 in for Germany to give them the win and France played the dullest game so far against Romania.

Overall the biggest surprise has to be the Dutch team who shocked Italy with a 3 nil scoreline. Been awhile since I've seen them play with such speed and flair. They were all over the Italians who are actually number 2 favourites to lift the cup.

I still feel that Germany will win it but Portugal and Holland have shown that they aren't letting it go without a fight. It looks to be an interesting tournament. Can't wait for the next game. Will Spain win against Russia? Will Greece rise to the occasion? Lets wait and see. ;)
