    That England game encapsulated why the English League is the most entertaining (definitely not the bets though!).

    Both teams couldn't defend and had no intention of playing tika-taka esque football; they just wanted to bomb forward, put crosses in from the flanks or get a head on a delivery from a set piece.

    It was proper end to end action.

    The slow motion replays for Big Lad's header were beautiful as THAT is how you should meet an inviting cross.

    I completely disagree. Most European teams utilize a defend and counter strategy that gets pretty boring. This game was exceptional and broke that mold.

    I think you guys are saying the same thing...

    (Also, great defense on spam this morning, Parker.)

    Yup, we are.

    People around the world like watching our league because the playing style is one of constant attack. While we'd like to think of ourselves as connoisseurs of football, we just love tackles flying in, shots on target and crosses being stood up in the mixer so the big man can give it the full eyebrows.

    Yes, I used a very English sentence there.

    But as many England games show, we are unable to play pass and move football. We may be able to pass, but just watch how static players are and then compare that to spain, italy, france and even denmark. Players in those teams once they pass the ball, they immediately look to make themselves available to get the ball back again.

    As a proud Greek, I will say that I am not proud they've won themselves a one-way ticket to be embarrassed on an even bigger stage.

    That was one of the most entertaining games i've ever seen. The reaction down the pub wa simmense to a game that was spiralling out of the referee's control.

    few minutes left in POR-NED.

    hahah, porned.

    very open game and portugal have taken full advantage of it. while it's 2-1 it could easily have been 4 or 5 to the portuguese.

    nani and ronaldo have been given so much space and have destroyed the dutch.

     public viewing. last 20 minutes were nervous but that goal was awesome! germany's in the quarter finals, whoop whoop!!!

    germany - greece.. interesting game (politically)

    too bad portugal - netherlands were on at the same time. would have been an interesting game to watch

    This is less than ideal for me. I'm pulling for Germany because I'm a bigger fan of them than I am the Greeks. If Greece won, I wouldn't be too upset though.

    I won't have to worry about that though since Germany will win by 12.

    Glad to see Sweden put up a good showing and can bow out gracefully. France really screwed the pooch on that one now that they have to face Spain.
