I won't take sides here - may the more deserving team win.

Just drop by, man, you'll be most welcome - I hope you'll get to read this still; I'll PM you about it. My husband is Spanish, as I said so many times, so I'm sure he wouldn't mind at all. BTW, Gelsenkirchen is my place of birth and between one and two hours by train from Cologne :)

I suppose our team are willing to do anything to avoid this :lol:

Congrats to Portugal and to France - I must admit I wouldn't have thought they could get into semifinals. This Ricardo is great - almost as good as our keeper :lol:

It was a strange experience for me yesterday. First of all, as a big, big football fan I was disappointed that I would be missing some of the match as I was playing cricket (to our US and European friends, cricket is the sport of gods!).

So, I was fielding during the first half, and batting through the second half, extra time and penalties. And as I managed to score 106 runs, I wasn't that upset about England. So it was very surreal for me, I didn't have any of the tension as I wasn't watching it. Which I think is a good thing.

But, we didn't play well enough at the end of the day, and couldn't create enough chances.

I think whoever wins the Germany-Italy match will win the competition.

gluck zum Deutchland!

Thank you, I suppose our team will need more than just "a little luck". The Italians, even if they don't play well (they haven't exactly stood out lately), are extremely shrewd. Funny that just the Italian press should come up with this evidence that a player of the German team grossly misbehaved after the match with Argentina - which is not meant to excuse him at all, don't get me wrong - but this will surely entail some psychological chaos. I just hope "the Mister" (if this was England, he'd soon be "Sir Jürgen Klinsmann" :lol: ) will be able to keep the impact to a minimum.
