    My predictions:

    Germany to beat Portugal
    Turkey to beat Croatia
    Netherlands to spank the Russians
    and Spain to beat Italy, who's without Gattuso and Pirlo
    Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups

    4 Reasons why Germany will win:

    1) They're more matured and experienced. They can take the pressure, with a couple of players that can change the game in an instant. (What pressure?)
    2) Portugal does not have a striker. (Nuno who? Did you knew this Euro 08 and its qualifying period, Portugal has had 0 penalty given in regular play, simply because they don't quite attack en masse into the opponent's penalty box. That's why. They rely on quick 1-2s which the Germans will be extremely comfortable with.)
    3) Paulo Ferreira is playing. (With Lahm attacking his side, he will be exploited and bearing a yellow card, i doubt Ferreira will be thinking of going into challenges at 100%.)
    4) Paulo Ferreira is playing.

    My take. Germany 1 to nil.

    The Germans and Italians are big match teams. They revel on the big occasions and up their ante at the right time unlike Spain and Portugal who never do justice to their talent. Holland, Spain and Portugal always flatter to deceive.

    For tonight, I'll be changing my name to something Russian-esque, which I've yet to finalise.

    I'll even wear my Russian cap, as a token of support to the enthralling Russian Team.

    Russian 2 - Oranjes 1. Hah!

    The Russians have no chance. In fact - so confident am I in us kicking Russia out, would you care for a wager Googooboyy?

    If Russia win - I will buy you something Russian. How about this: http://shop.itroika.com/matrioshka-t..._267-2729.html
    And if Holland win - you've to buy me... uh... quick google search... the dutch chicken hat on this page: http://www.typicaldutchstuff.com/oranje.shtml

    Both are about 30 euros if you include shipping (assuming you live in UK or EU).

    If you want to bet confirm before the match starts

    Holland vs Russia tonight. I think both of them are capable of winning the entire championship. Russia, as an underdog, really impressed me in their last match against Sweden!

    Holland is out of the championship! They've played great, but Russia was just much better today. They were so fast and had so many good shots! With just a little more accuracy, we could have seen some even greater goals as well! The goals were really nice though! Looking forward to Spain - Italy tomorrow

    Oooh, I saw that post about wager too late I guess? Thanks anyway. Lol.

    I'm actually impressed by the calmness that the Russians spread the ball around, as well as the speed that they ambush the Dutch's penalty box. I'm starting to think they'll win it (Euros), this time, if they can get past the Italians.

    Oh, I'm changing stance now, cos Spain will bow out to Italy. My head getting the better of my heart here. Good luck Spain.

    Aww, really disappointed in Holland going out but I have no complaints. Russia played a good game and were overall the better team on the day.

    Glad you missed on the bet!

    Italy - Spain wasn't a very exciting match. To share some worthless trivia: Spain have been knocked out from championships three times on this day (the 22nd of June): in 1986, 1996 and 2002. Luckily for them, they broke the curse.

    Ahh, Spain couldn't score (nromal time). And Luca Toni proved he's not up for the big games. So Spain VS Russia it is. No guessing which side my bet's on.

    Chris you think you can win a Spain Hat this time? ; )
