Croatia will win this tourney.
What I expect to see in the semifinals:
Croatia-Hungary
Germany-France
Italy to go out against Germany.

Hope to be completely wrong and see Italy lifting the trophy.

I have Italy winning it, but honestly, these games are basically anyone's guess. The top teams have shown that they're able to be frustrated and the "lesser" teams have shown that they can play with anyone. When choosing who I think is going to win, I ended up just going with my split-second gut decision.

This said, Zlatan scored just one more goal than Wilmots on international tournaments apparently. It was a close contest! ;-p

Zlatan, Ronaldo, Messi to an extent, all these "superstars" are the anti-international tournaments. Which is why I love these tournaments, to an extent more than club football, where good team spirit comes before anything else, and it rewarded as such.
Then again, the fact that I was introduced to football as a whole during one of these might play a part in it as well.

Agree. I'm impressed with Hungary, never would have thought they could be this good. And Iceland as well, love to see teams like these fight tooth and nail for a win or draw.
About Italy winning it; it would be well bloody time, last time we won one of this was back in '68.

The person who came up with this dumb format need to get fired.  Group stage is a joke.  You get through being 3rd place. And it should be if you are the best team in the tournament you get to face the 3rd place not, not if the "best"  3rd place just happen to be in right group you get to face them.

I don't quite get what you mean in the second part. Most of the first place teams are playing third place teams, but there's only 4, so the other 2 first place teams are playing second placed teams.

This was always going to happen with 24 teams in the tournament. Just get it over with, expand it to 32 teams and have 8 groups of 4. They'll never go back to having 16 teams after the money they've generated this year.

I don't agree. The group stage was great, there were many great games and there were no ridiculously shit teams like in the world cup.

Last world Cup was fine the group stage was good.  Teams are trying to attack not playing defensive and counter.

I really hate the idea of 3rd place going through because you reward losing/drawing. 

Teams will be more inclined to play really defensive, if both teams play that way the match is going to super ugly

Incredible Ryan Giggs is considered an acceptable TV pundit after all those years of fucking his brothers wife behind his wifes and brothers back..

What next 'Family liaison Officer' job at OT ?

Obviously its Chelseas fault, if we hadn't sacked Jose he'd still be at United
