I had the pleasure of being in Northern Ireland last night. I tried to text my friend after we (Estonia) went 1:2 up, but I couldn't, because my hands were shaking that much. What. A. Feeling. Please, please Slovenia, don't let Serbia win!

Cristiano Ronaldo who? :p


Great game by Denmark, really a pleasure to watch them at the moment! A win against Portugal wasn't really expected, but we Denmark was the better team on the day! Awesome to get direct qualification!

BBC Sport - Rooney sideshow the last thing Capello needs

BBC Sport said:
Fabio Capello was at home in Italy when Uefa's decision to rule Wayne Rooney out of England's Euro 2012 group games was delivered to him by the Football Association.

At that moment Capello knew his plans for the tournament in Poland and Ukraine would have to be divided into two phases. He must devise a strategy to ensure England safely navigate their way into the knockout stage, then make sure their finest player is in the right mental and physical shape to enter Euro 2012 at the sharp end.

A stupid and unecessary challenge was the cause of the ban. Seems a bit harsh, but he has got previous and maybe he will be more careful in future.

:rolleyes:

Didn't expect Croatia to win that comfortably in Turkey. I guess Hiddink doesn't do magic after all.

Croatia and Ireland look pretty well set to qualify with big away wins in leg one, and the Czech Republic are looking good too.

:cool:

I think England are getting better but no where near there as yet.

They'll have a strong team on paper and get hyped up by the media as usual, then fall short of their expectations, like it always goes.

Germany and Spain are my big favourites. But as always with these kinds of things, nothing is probably going to go down the way you expect it to.. :p

Denmark has been doing pretty well recently, I'm certainly hoping for a strong showing :) Don't think we can pull off another '92, but you can always dream :D

Err, too late for a '92 repeat.

You needed to have NOT qualified, but have been next best team, be on the beach on your holidays and then have a nasty civil war start in one of the teams who had qualified.

Then Denmark WIN the Euro championship. :lol:
