    Quite the week in England and I'm sure a few heads will be taken to the Tower of London for a chopping

    Well yeah with the 3rd place teams but this is the first time they expanded it from 16 teams so i suppose there are going to be a few learning curves here and there.

    Wales about to go through to the semis! What an upset, Belgium was heavily favored.

    Can Wales or Iceland be the 2016 version of that 2004 Greece team?

    Belgium was heavily overhyped too.

    But certainly a great game by Wales. Too bad Ramsey will be suspended for the semis, I'd rather not see Portugal win.

    Yea I think people were really struggling to put them up their with Germany, France, Italy, and I'm like whoa lets take it easy here.

    Yea that could be an issue with Ramsey out, but even with Ronaldo Portugal never scares me

    I think it's mainly due to those worthless FIFA World-Rankings placing them 1st for a while (and currently 2nd).
    No point in following these Rankings, since they don't take into account against which country you play. So garbage wins against Micronations count as much as beating Argentina or Germany.

    Belgium certainly has talented players, they struggle to be a team though. Of course missing most of the Defense didn't help them today.

    So we beat Italy for the first time ever at a tournament, after a Shootout that would make England proud of all those embarassing misses early on lol

    Onwards to the semis and (most likely) France.

    If Belgium doesn't have as many injuries, they go on and make the final. Their best defensemen were all either out or playing in a different position than with their club teams. Imagine this team, but with Kompany to lead them. Different story.

    In the end, a weak champion, for an overall weak tournament.
    Way too many boring games. Not even really the fault of the bloated competition, but style of play is just too boring.
    Teams played one of two styles: "Park the Bus" or "Controll the ball"
    Both not very exciting.

    Arsenal is so much fun to watch when they are playing well. Three beautiful goals yesterday

    I'm going to miss Arsene Wenger when he's gone from Arsenal. Shame the club is trending poorly right now.

    Its depressing to watch it go down like this. It's ll getting thrown on Wenger but the players have no balls and the owner doesn't care about winning
