Lucky ol' Portugal! Kept at bay until the 85th minute then a spawny own goal, then a penalty, which was, then a goal from CR7 that looked offside to me.

At least they won't now have to beat France and Germany to be sure of going through.

Spain looked poor, not managing hardly a shot on goal despite having 85% of the ball. France were not that impressive either, missing several good chances.

My outside bet - Belgium.

Depends on where you are, but the sports bar beside the 3 Marias restaurant just on from Balaia Golf usually has a good number of young locals there, might well be packed though.

So far, early days, Italy for me, they can play, they can defend and they can score.

Italy usually tight defensive but the 2 games attacking scoring goals defending well. Deff a strong Semi final team. Portugal got a lucky rub of the green. France great against Germany.Belgium impressive. England average slow start semi finals.Thought the Euros being displaced across Europe I would struggle to get excited but its been great so far.
Going for Portugal heart says but Italy going to be very hard to beat.

As summed up by the BBC

"

France will finish first if they win, or if they draw and Germany do not beat Hungary. If France lose and Hungary win, second place will be decided on overall goal difference.

Germany will go through if they win, or if they draw and France do not lose. Germany will finish first if they win and France do not. Germany will finish third if they draw and France lose, or if both Germany and Portugal lose.

Portugal qualify if they win, or if they draw and Germany lose. Portugal will finish first if they win and Germany do not. Portugal will finish fourth if they lose and Germany also lose.

Hungary will go through in second place if they win and Portugal lose. If they win and France lose, second place will be decided on overall goal difference. Hungary will finish third if they win and the other game is drawn."

Simple, just like the rules of cricket! Thumbs Up
The Rules of Cricket
as Explained to a Foreign Visitor

You have two sides, one out in the field and one in.

Each man that's in the side that's in, goes out, and when he's out, he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out.

When they are all out the side that's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in out.

Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

When both sides have been in and out including the not-outs, that's the end of the game.

Thank god I'm not a football fan.  The offside rule is bad enough.  Fortunately I have plenty of other TV options to avoid the EUROs.

Half time and France are looking in all sorts of trouble against the Swiss. If I don`t watch the second half,  will I still be right to say I can`t see anyone beating France   LOL

Well, out go France. Poor defending, Good game for the neutrals. So that's three of the likely front runners out. My money is on Belgium. Spain's defence also looks suspect, trying too much to play out from the back with short passes while surrounded.

And what about the disgraceful scenes at both yesterday's games? Tens of thousands of people enjoying a game of football, drinking beer and shouting for their teams. Shouldn't be allowed. Wink

Now for this afternoon's feast of exciting thrill packed sport. 1-1 after extra time and England lose on penalties.
