Well, the two games today were good. Now we know who's playing in half of the quarterfinal games. To be honest I don't think at this point you can put any team over the other. A lot of teams played good, but none outstanding, except for the czechs. At this point England can win it as much as France can win it, and who knows, maybe even the greeks pull of a surprise. If someone is betting, I don't think he'd be very confident with any team he chose at the moment.
On the same issue, I always love listening to people who don't really watch much football but still give out grand claims. For example, I was watching the England-Switzerland and the France-Croatia game (yes it was a long lazy day), and there was a girl in the room who decided to declare some comments on the players. Now, I am completely for girls being into watching and playing football, but this girl probably was watching the game for the first time in her life.
Her: Who is that? Is that Owen?
Her: He's not that good is he?
Me: He's alright...
Her: I prefer that other guy, what's his name?
H: Nooo.. obviously Rooney is better than Owen. No the other guy.
Me: Darius Vassel?
H: Is that his name?
Me: I don't know.. is it?
H: Yeah, it sounds familiar. The black guy right?
H: Yeah he's much better than Owen. I think that Owen is overrated.
Me: You obviously follow football really closely.
H: Yeah. I like it, I always watch it, specially when Manchester United are playing.
