Portugal wins Euro 2008

same I'm not really cheering for them, it's more Ronaldo! He's champion!

I hope you guys are right.

As do I, crappy loss in '04 but hopefully we can get this one.

A fellow portuguese? :P

Yah I remember thinking that would be the first time I saw my team win a championship, oh well. I wish that soccer players didn't retire so much earlier from international games before they retire for their respected clubs. For example I know Rui Costa who retired from international play at the end of the 2004 Euro Cup, but played his last game for Benfica a few weeks ago. Also Figo apparently played his last international game against France at the last World Cup.

Let's go Portugal!! (dance)

For those who are counting 16 more days
I'm actually debating running a pool for it - as a test run for World Cup 2010.

Is it just me, or does Spain usually luck out and get placed in a relatively weak group when it comes to international/European tournaments?

Dude i'd be down

It would be pretty awesome

Yeah it seems like that 04 they were in an alright group but 2000 was pretty easy

Yep, half. Ronaldo is listed as a forward on the website. Scored 8 goals in qualifying so I hope it works in the tournament too.

Well I hope your right up until the finals, but Portugal has had Holland's number the last two times they've played, I don't know as much before that.

Is Nistelrooy (Sp.?) still playing.

Yep

Most of the team is back from Germany 06 and Portugal 04

and van der Sar is playing great it could be a great final if it's the Netherlands and Portugal

No doubt about it, I have quite a few dutch buddies so the boys in orange have become somewhat of a second team for me. Let's hope none of the bad blood from that game, where yellows and reds were being thrown all over the place. :P

That's what I want to see a return to. That style of football is what brought them to prominence in Europe in the first place. Just a great style of football, IMO.

And yeah, I'm hoping that they can get over that Portugal Hump if they end up meeting. Certainly don't wanna see a redux of that ugly match in 06.

Not at all. Sweden, Greece, and Spain sounds like a pretty hard group to me. I haven't heard anything about the Russians though. Also Spain didn't do that hot in qualifying, if I remember correctly. Sweden is a much better team then Spain so it doesn't matter.

Predictions

Group A

Portugal

Switzerland

Group B

Croatia

Germany

Group C

Netherlands

I set up an automated Pool if anyone wants to make picks for all of the games through to the finals. It will tabulate the points based on:

1pt for each opening round game you get right.

2pts for each team that gets to the quarterfinals.

3pts for each team to get to the semifinals

5pts for each team in the finals

10 pts for getting the winner right

10 pts for accurately picking the player who scores the most goals.

This is just for fun, but feel free to sign up as often as you want. Basically I just set this up as a tool to do the scoring system and as a schedule.
