new favourites...

Looks like Euro 2008 isn't really going as how most predicted. Quite a handful of upsets and now 2 new favourites have emerged. Both Portugal and Netherlands have run riot over their competitors. The Dutch being the most entertaining by thrashing Italy in their 1st game and only moments ago humilating Les Blues.

Netherlands used to be my favourite team but somehow with all their talents they had teamwork issues. Ego and racism were rife and that hampered their glory. Gotta give it to Marco Van Basten for putting things in order. If they keep this up, they look to be unstoppable!

Portugal on the other hand were always a threat. This time around with red-hot Ronaldo and the others vying for new clubs, they are bound to be on fire. With the leadership of Scolari (soon to be Chelsea's new manager) I can't see them missing out on the finals unless of course another upset occurs. ;)

My vote is still on the Germans. Hope they bounce back against Austria. Sadly without Podolski but am sure Klose and Ballack will rise to the occasion.

Alrighty time to hit the sack. Yaaawwn. Gd'nite folks!
