UEFA EURO 2012

Hello football (soccer) fans! ;D



Welcome to my Euro 2012 thread. Feel free to post here, about your favourite teams, players, results, the games, who you think will win, and so on. I made a similar thread for the World Cup, and it was great fun.

Have fun! ;D

I'm watching Roland Garros semis, kinda find tennis more entertaining than football, but I might watch the Czechs, although I have a bad feeling that their participation will turn into a fiasco. :-\ They were all oh-so-confident that I really think we won't make it out of the initial group. ;D

Not sure yet whom I'll root for, besides us... maybe England, when I saw the long row of injuries. ;D

I'm usually not into football, but it's hard not to get interested this time, as I'm living in one of the host cities and all that  ;D

Also, I'm curious of how Poland will do this time around. I... don't have too big expectations  ;D

XD Neither do I, but that seems to be in sharp contrast with everyone else's expectations of our team. Just one of the newspaper headlines: "We're not outsider and I believe we will prove it."

We lost to Hungary in the last prepare match. ::)

Given how far my country managed to get (runner-up) in the World Cup, I doubt I'm gonna be able to escape the football craze :-\  Hell, "we" aren't even playing tonight, yet a lot of channels have coverage of..whatever match is on tonight (Russia?)

*flails*

I'm with jouzi on this one, Roland Garros > Euro 2012.

Poland vs. Greece and, later, Czechs vs Russia.

And, speaking of the first one, which is currently going...

... Robert Lewandowski scooooores!!!!  ;D

The first goal is ours!  :D

Do I sense some national humour here?  ;)

Anyway, regarding the ongoing game: I must say I'm surprised. Because our Polish guys are actually kind of... good?

Still, they managed to lose one goal... in a stupid way, IMHO.  :-(

Alright, that's it for this match: 1:1. Could've been better, could've been worse, I guess...

Yay! I'm so happy there's a Euro thread!

I run the Euro pool for my work. It's kind of depressing when people who have very little interest in soccer pick outlandish results and still manages to win the damn thing. Oh well, I think it's fun. :O

Poland was better in the first half.

Okay, off to watch the next game.

Did anyone see the Russia v. Czech Republic game?  I'm curious to see whether they will be any good, both for UEFA and for World Cup in 2014. 

Germany v. Portugal should be interesting, as should Netherlands v. Denmark.  Group of Death!

Also, if anyone cares, USA's first semifinal qualifying match was against Antigua & Barbuda today.  They won 3-1, although they looked sloppy and sluggish doing so. :\

My bet goes to... The Neatherlands. And then, hopefully, Germany! ~cheers~

So is this one right now. Any grinning Danish Elliquians out there? RVP needs to get his act together  or be subbed. Holland could suffer a very English experience this tournament if they don't turn this around in 10 minutes.
