UEFA Euro 2016 Preliminary Round

Bildergebnis für euro 2016

When the championship started last Friday me and my mates watched most of the games so far. We discussed lot about the destructive play of many teams at their first games. In my opinion it is more the fear of losing the game than to play offensive and get your chance to win. We didn't see great games so far and there were less games to remember. What impressed us much was Ireland with a great attacks toward the goal, England with a great advantage in the game but less successful at the end of the game. Italy with these old guys playing an detached game with a lot of effectiveness. Wales with a formidable game and three points. While I was typing these words France won against Albania and I think they were hot for the victory the competition. Looking forward to the second round especially Germany against Poland and Wales against England. Let's see what will come up in the next games.

Wales v England is huuuuuuge here in Cardiff, as you can imagine. The roads are very quiet, work is very quiet, the streets in general are very quiet. By 2pm this afternoon, all eyes will be on the TV, even those who don't like football. Wales v England is always a massive fixture in any sport.

As for the negative tactics you mention - I'm firmly of the belief that each team has to play to their strengths and do what they can to get through a game. I love that Iceland got a result against Portugal. There is no way Iceland would have won that game by playing attacking football - they would have been annihilated. Ronaldo is a sore loser with his remarks making me hate him even more than I already did.

I'm afraid that being German, you'll have to get used to teams playing defensively against you. Your team is far too good for the smaller teams, so they have to use different tactics against you. It is frustrating and not particularly entertaining, but if it works for them, I applaud it. You have to be good enough to break them down.

You're Germany - you usually win so don't let it bother you too much!

COME ON WALES!!!

If Wales beat England later today, I'll open a bottle of Champagne, promised. I mean, I'll still be at the office then, but that won't hinder me!!!

I'm with Dirk If Wales beat England I'll have a few beers to Salute you. I will be at Office as well but there is a live ticker running in the back.

Fuck it, that second goal was unnecessary! Then again I don't think England will win against Slovakia and then they can go home or, if you'd rather, the bloody idiots will tear the town down later today and then they'll be sent home as well .... either way the chances for Wales are still high!

God damn right Dirk but both teams have a big chance as number 3 to get to the next round. Think the same way about these idiots Dirk

The worst thing about losing to England in any sport is the gloating. The English love to gloat about winning. Had they lost however, it would have been doom and gloom and sack the manager. The media as well are England-obsessed. The BBC (BRITISH Broadcasting Corporation) talk incessently about England. If they win, it's about everything England did well. If they lose, it's about everything England did wrong. Nothing about the opposition ever.

Wales take it on the chin. To be fair, England deserved to win. Wales have to learn to be confident and not defend for 48 minutes. You don't win games that way, and they could have won, they really could have won.

Hopefully they'll beat Russia and the biggest idots in Europe will go home. And good riddance to them. Shame that's where the next World Cup will be held. That's what corruption buys you.

Wise words, Robsters, not entirely an English invention this media behaviour, though .... and indeed I do hope those Russian morons have to go home soon!!

Walter hat gesagt…

Agree to all of your words. Let's send them home to Russia.
