Hell yeah! Go Russia Go!
Congrats! I guess Guus Hididink and the team learned from that terrible play against Spain. The Netherlands at the other hand...Beaten the world champion and the runner up with a 3 goal difference. 7 goals for, 1 against. Call me an optimist but I could see this as an European championship team!
You may well be, Portugal are the best team so far.
Last time Holland won it was in 1988, 20 years ago... Van Basten, Gullit, Rijkaard, Koeman brothers, Van Breukelen, what a team that was! Probably the best football team ever to play football in my age!
It's 20 years anniversary of that great team, with Van Basten as coach, I always liked dutch football, I hope they do it, although I sense Portugal to do well, just to put a cherry on Ronaldo's season.
HELL YEAH! its Turkeys year baby!
If Holland keep playing that way nobody will be able to stop them. It may be sort of a blasphemy, but I agree with eclap. It is definitely Total Football ( 1974 Holland ) all over again so far and it sure reminds everyone of the 1988 Holland too
Pressure everywhere, extremely effective counterattacks, they know what to do with the ball, stunning performances so far.
P.S I'm Greek and we've been the biggest let-down in this tourney. By far the worst team of the 16. Not even 1% of the Euro 2004 performance. And definitely no luck at all this time judging by the 2 ridiculous goals we conceided (2nd by Sweden + tonight's goal by Russia )
Watched that live and while it was a close call it was obvious that that goal was made out of play...v
i understand your happyness but you should've posted this in the official Euro2008 thread imo that's why it exists, if everyone made a thread like this the pub would've ended up just like the gaming thread with people creating new threads over and over, official threads exist for a reason.
