    I was able to catch half the game. This team seems very promising this time around, and exciting to watch.

    England vs Scotland, right now.

    I am having a nice glass of whiskey for Scotland. :)

    Unless I have skin in the game, I want to see the underdogs win.

    Two own goals for Portugal must have really been confidence destroying.

    Yes, definitely. They have to fix their defense because the next game is against France, not an easy opponent. I am really looking forward to Italy vs Wales in a few hours. I hope it is going to be interesting game even though Italy is already in the next round.

    Btw, yesterday people were celebrating the Victory in the streets of my City till midnight, feels like a normal summer like it was without Corona.

    Portugal's defense was extremely poor. They were just not trying, not getting to contested balls, too far off their man. That's not to take away from the Germans play. I am just not convinced yet. I am also not convinced by the Spanish either. The Italian team on the other hand has played very well so far.

    Italians are known as bad pendelty kickers

    Wasn't the case in the 2006 World Cup though.

    Right now its halftime with Italy vs Austria. Right now it is 0-0, but Italy has been playing strong. Good defense for Austria though.

    Italy has a difficult path Belgium, France and maybe Germany at the end. Italy has a good group but no really top quality to solve difficult matches. Imagine if Arnautovic gol was good.

    Can't underestimate any of those teams. Of course, I have faith in Italy, naturally.

    Portugal vs Belgium should be a good one.

    Every single one of those teams have been eliminated, except for Italy.

    Who is your pick in light of recent developments?

    Sorry to butt in, Jovialis, but I don't know if you've seen this analysis by professionals, a Frenchman and Brits, saying Italy has played brilliantly and consistently throughout the competition, and should be the favorite.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=REQuy4Kb3dc

    I would agree with that.

    However, anything can happen in this game, which is what makes every game a nail biter, so you never know, and I'm concerned about the loss of Spinazzola.

    Everybody has been talking about the great team spirit they have, and I think it's down to the relationship between the players and also to Mancini. Part of it is also, I think, that it's never a good idea to trash talk the Italian team before a game. Sometimes it makes them so angry that it turns into more determination. Anyway, what a difference from what seems to be going on among the French players. It's a pity, because they're a good team. Always a bad idea, imo, to have a family member manage you, but the coach should have been able to build a better sense in them that the team comes first.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PA8Ea0X7g50

    Btw, trivial, I know, but can we talk about the clothes??? Bespoke Armani suits at every game, although Mancini looked so tense every time that I hardly think he noticed what he was wearing! :)

    No pick it can go either way. As I said before no top quality to solve difficult matches. Yesterday Italy left it to fate, it was afraid to lose so did not go for the win in the field against newly build Spain.

    FWIW, historically, Italy usually can defeat Germany. Germany only seems to win in friendly matches:

    True, but this is history, things change. This Italy is an average team compared with the ones in the past. They have a good group but no top players. It might happened that they win it all but I don’t see it very probable.
