A weekend of justification in Euro 2008

Well, I’m quite glad I backed the Russians to win Euro 2008 at 22/1.  They’ve been spectacular in their last two matches and Arshavin has been the revelation of the tournament.  Here’s hoping there’s more to come from him.  It was a splendid game and a great performance all round (51 shots on goal) and was what footie should all be about.

Then there was the Italians.

Utter cynicism.

Toni finished the tournament without even looking like scoring.

A terrible game ‘dominated’ by Spain but ruined by Italy.  Oh how we cheered when they lost on penalties.  But it begs the question; are the Spanish good enough to win the tournament?  I don’t think so.

In terms of my predictions; well I thought Russia and Germany would be in the semis, and they are; and that Italy would beat Spain in the other quarter final.  Well, I got the teams right but not the result.

I honestly think Russia can do it.  My bank manager hopes so to.

Come on folks. Don't just sit there gawping. Say something. Get involved.
