England have the better players, but haven't as yet played as a team, if they don't put that right this evening I think Germany will take the spoils.

We were suitably enthused at the end of the game.

Now to find somewhere to watch Saturday's game as a group as all the bars in Albufeira msut close at 3.30pm. Furtively slipping over the border into Silves borough area seems possible.

Only thing to stop England getting to final is complacency after beating Germany. In a strange way they need to partially forget about it regroup refocus on next match. Every game is sudden death knockout. On paper an easier route to final but this championship thrown the paper in the bin with some upsets

All this about "it's been 55 years" well yes in the knockout stages, but we have beaten them in group stages.

Great result for England, in with a good shout for a place in the semi finals now and as good a chance as anyone from there to go all the way.

I'd like to see Harry win something, his form over the last few years deserves some reward.

Their last competitive win over the Germans came in 2001 when Michael Owen scored a hat-trick in a 5-1 thrashing in World Cup qualifying. England have won only two of the two nations' seven World Cup or World Cup qualifier meetings, and only one of their four European Championship showdowns

Not exactly a good record.

Italy still seem the team to beat.

They won't have it easy against Spain, particularly without their outstanding left back, but on form you'd think they should still have enough.

Italy v England final?
At this stage on form I think that would be the best final to look forward to, top quality football and with a very partisan crowd, atmosphere would be something special.

Bookings picked up in the semi finals could well play a part, which would be a pity, but all things being equal, how would that game go?

Well, after a suitably joyous night, we must make sure England find a way to beat Denmark. It won't be easy on Wednesday night.

Letf's hope it doesn't go to penalties, as we shall be chucked out of the pub just as they start!

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.  


Thanks for that.

We are however located out near Sao Rafael so it was a bit far. Got talking to a Portuguese local and he informed us that casa Benfica hadn't completely closed they had moved near montochoro near the hospital. We ended up there but with Germany beating Portugal the atmosphere was a bit subdued. Definitely a nice location though and at €1.10 a pint we will surely return. We had also considered a football club in the centre of Guia. Has anyone ever watched football there. Anytime we pass it always seems busy.

Thanks again

"We had also considered a football club in the centre of Guia"

The football club social club bar in Guia is usually fairly busy. I have been there a few times, but got for a while now as my lot (Imortal Albufeira) have been in a different division. The actual football ground is about half a mile away, just off the Algoz road.

I do remember the food service being extremely slow!

I had the opportunity to purchase a ticket for the final last week, but at 945euros I resisted the temptation. I know I will probably never get another chance but that price is just too much. I will watch on TV along with the many other millions of fans.
