OT: Euro 2021 Thread: Who Ya Got?

Recommended Posts

Looks like Spain gets the Italians. Italy won the last meeting at Eurocup (2016) 2-0. But Spain dominated in Euro 2012 finals 4-0. Hopefully a good game.

Spain looked a bit pedestrian today in their win over Switzerland. Their lack of a quality striker continues to bite them. Italy were solid against Belgium but look to have lost their best player in the tourney (Spinnazola) to injury.

Heartbreaking loss for the Swiss. Sommer stood on his head all game long, and then they stunk it up in penalties, DESPITE two more saves from Sommer and a post shot by a Spaniard. Just terrible. 

A Russian missile was fired after their radar picked up an unidentified object launched from within the stadium.

Ya lack of attacking force has been their story for several years now. Italy definitely looks like the better team.

Spain is nowhere near their 2008-2012 level, but Italy might be less of a favorite with an apparent injury to their stud Spinazola. Should be an excellent game. As long as someone beats England...

Semi matchups set with Italy-Spain and England-Denmark. England have a little bit of an advantage as they get to play any remaining games in London. The Three Lions displayed their depth with two players getting starts today (Mount and Sancho) and not playing their best player from the previous match (Jack Grealish).

I was digging Messi dishing off at the Copa.

Spain had their chances. Tying goal did look like Spain a decade back, but overall (lack of) finishing cost them.

I was happy with them making the semis. Never thought they would beat Italy so they actually surprised me by looking like the better team.

Fantastic match between Spain and Italy. Spain were very good and looked to have the impetus after tying the match 1-1 in the 80th minute. For some reason they played a bit more conservatively from then on. Ultimately it cost them because they lost on penalties. Dani Olmo was the best player on the pitch and he sent his penalty out of Wembley. Morata scored a beautiful goal to tie the match and then badly missed his penalty. Italy were deserved winners.

Definitely was a good one after the first half. Rooting for Italy to win, unless Denmark somehow beats England in London...

Denmark struck first, but England looks inspired. I’ll be shocked if England doesn’t win this in regular time

I'm not talking smack or complaining - I'm being 100% real with you - there should be an award for best flop pf the week every week and a special one for the cup.  It should be recognized by giving the winner a trophy that cannot stand upright and constantly lays on its side - like the reverse of a sippy cup.  Again, 100% serious,
