Football (Soccer)

Wow, the Czechs take the lead! Half an hour to go.
 
Great finish from Provod, it looked like it went in, in slow motion.

I've no idea how Czech Republic are winning, it seems like they've hardly had a touch of the ball, let alone a shot, I actually think that was their first shot on goal. Portugal have looked good, just lacking the most important thing, a goal.
 
Oh Portugal equalise with an own goal.
 
2-1 Portugal, sub comes on and nicks the winner it looks like for them. They have been dominant if not quite flowing.
 
By the way how many long range beauties have we had so far already. Goal of the tournament is going to be a tough competition itself.
 
Poor Czechs, so close to a very valuable point. Portugal looked good but it shows how important luck is in football that they needed an own goal to win and then a 92nd minute goal to take 3 points.
 
The youngsters are showing up at this Euros. Wirtz, Musiala, Bellingham and Arda Guler all have goals in their first game and Yamal has an assist.
 
Really does feel like a changing of the guard moment in terms of older established players now fading out and a whole host of young talent coming through and making their name.

Also we have had loads of goals in the first round but no single player has scored more than 1 so far which is another crazy stat. It seems out and out strikers are a dying breed these days but goals can come from anywhere.
 
Oh no Croatia in real trouble losing 1-0 to Albania. They certainly can’t afford to lose after already taking a 3-0 loss and with Italy to come.
 
Kramaric gets an equaliser after Croatia domination since the start of the second half.
 
And another, turnaround! 2-1 Croatia.
 
Wow, Albania get an equaliser in the 95th minute! This tournament is crazy!
 
Final score 2-2, absolutely crazy end there with chances at both ends. Croatia have it all to do now in the final game against Italy. Probably need a win as 2 points is unlikely to be enough for a top 4 3rd place with a 3-0 loss already on the books.
 
Musiala, what a player. 2 in 2 for the kid as Germany take the lead against Hungary.
 
Sounds like another crazy game missed with the Albanians grabbing a point in the 95th minute to make it 2-2. The guy who scored the OG to put Croatia in the lead getting the equalizer to redeem himself. More mad stuff, this tourne is delivering in spades, the goals are flowing in every game it seems at the moment.

Knockouts might get a bit cagier but thats usually the way.

Also finally someone with more than 1 goal now, Musiala is really delivering for Germany, early contender for player of the tournament it seems.
 
Germany looking very good. They’re the first team to sort out their place in the knockout stages. Hungary are going to need to beat Scotland in the last game.

Yeah good result for Scotland this as if they were to lose tonight it literally turns that game into a straight knockout, all be it having to wait for other results. Germany have played well without needing to go crazy, job done and resting their main players now.
 
1-1 Shaqiri with another long range belter. Error at the back by Scotland and they have made a few this game get punished this time.

Cracking game this is to be fair.
 
Scotland putting up a fight today! A draw would be ok for Switzerland who should still finish second with it, given Scotland’s goal difference. Much better from Scotland than last time out. Can finally get some pride back and restart the party lol.

It's so nice to see Die Mannschaft back to themselves. The last decade was very dark for us fans. It's like they completely started to fall apart after their World Cup victory in 2014.
 
Scotland survive to the last game. Brave performance and strong comeback after the 5-1 drubbing. Will be a huge match between them and Hungary in the final round. I expect a draw would put both teams out so it’s going to be all or nothing for both teams, as high stakes as it gets!

It looks like things are really coming together and just in time for a home tournament. Outside of England, Germany are one of the teams I’m supporting, and they have absolutely top quality young attacking players in Wirtz and Musiala. Add to that the experience of Gundogan and Kroos and Rudiger at the back and they are going to be very hard to beat with home support and already strong momentum.
 
Vital point for Scotland and now have a fair chance of getting through in a one off game against Hungary now, they would have taken that after the disaster of the opening game against a decent Switzerland side. It wont be easy but Hungary are beatable for Scotland more than their first two games and they will go in with a lot more confidence as well after tonight. Sets up Sunday nicely.
