Some underwhelming performances across the board.
Belgium need a decent manager, with the players at their disposal they should have done much better. Italy, did well given their aging and sub-par squad compared to recent years. Germany just look a little broken now, they should have won the thing looking at the team on paper. France.. a good team when they turn up, but last night they didn't really. Pogba was MIA for most of the game.
I enjoyed the tournament very much. Apart from England of course. I didn't mind at all that Portugal won. I didn't really mind who would win before the match. Possibly wanted France to win slightly more, because of everything they've been through. But, I found myself pleased that Portugal had won in the the end. They were far from the greatest Portugal team ever, and indeed far from being a great team, but as a footballing nation Portugal have always punched above their weight, and I think as a footballing nation they deserve a big trophy.
I was the one who let you know, I was your sorry ever after, '84, '85. Give me new toys and I'll decide, but I'm really only after, '84, '85.
I have a dislike of Portugal's national team as they seem to appeal at every opportunity and do childish things like throw/kick the ball away from throw in spots. Ball goes out, Portugal want the throw in, man falls over, free kick/penalty please, card given, gesture or get in ref's face, offside, look at linesman. They've been like this for years and Ronaldo is one of the worst offenders.

Well, ROoney finally dropped from England's starting eleven - and not before time.
Scotland have made a pigs ear of it thanks to Strachan who selected the wrong team at home to a team we aimed to beat and we paid the price. Sadly it needs us to wash out of the qualifiers before he leaves. Which I think will happen given his track record of walking away when things get tough.
Not my favourite weekend of sport, Hull and Liverpool crushed 5-0 a piece. The Hull game was ridiculous, they deserved to win even though they werent that much better, but not 5-0, every shot of theirs seemed to go in.
I slept through the Liverpool game thankfully.
Even my fantasy team let me down. Or I let it down as I took Kanes captaincy and gave it to Mr "One Point" Saleh.
