Anyone watching it this time round since none of the British teams are there?
Backing anyone? Who do you think is going to win it?

Being Portuguese I am backing my home country Portugal, although we are always one of the favourites we always seem to disapoint, but the last 3 Euros we didn't do to bad, Enlgand 96 we reached the quarters, Holland/Belgium in 2000 we reached the semis and in Portugal in 2004 we made the final, lets hope we can go one better this time round ;)

GO GO PORTUGAL!!!!!

Spain all the way, and Torres as top scorer.
They never really win anything or do very well in international competitions, and they are always favourites! :rolleyes:

a bit like England, i think I'd still support Spain in Euro 08 even if England had qualified! Being a Liverpool supporter, backing Spain is a no brainer and the kits a pretty similar. Also I'll be in Ibiza during the tournament so look forward to watching and celebrating with the locals.

Portugal wins the first game! 2-0 against the Turks, could have been more since we hit the woodwork 3 times and had a goal ruled out for offside. Next the Czech Republic ;)

My monies on Russia, a powerful side, fantastic manager, In my eyes I think they're going to be the real dark horses of the tournament.

It's all boring because there are no british teams there, not just England. I'd even support Scotland if they were there. I just can't get excited about it. I just hope portugal don't win - I'm a Ronaldo anti-fan!

I don't like that idiot too, but I have to support my own country ;)
Shame England not there really, so that we could kick them out once again :p

It's odd isn't it? Most people like good footballers, and you can't ignore the fact that Ronaldo is the best player on the planet at the moment. But no one likes him. Most Man U fans don't even like him. I say "Ronaldo, NO! Bugger off to Madrid so we don't 'ave to watch you prancin' abart and fallin' over all the time". Nuff said I think.

Yep he is good, but getting a little big headed and the falling over too easy doesn't help his case. I don't think he is suited for Spanish football, I hope he goes there to prove me wrong, I want him to do well at national level and maybe Portugal can one day win something.

Couldn't agree more. Amazing goals but I hope he goes to Milan or wherever it is. In fact anywhere away from here will do. If he could take all the other 'girls' who fall over at the drop of a hat too then that'd be great...

In the spirit of the game and since Portugal made it to the quarter finals as the group winner already with one game to go, here is a photo of Pixie how we go out after each game to celebrate in the street :) (There is a big Portuguese community here where I live, last game there were a couple of thousand people celebrating in the street I live on)





If you wondering I made the outfit from one of those car flags lol :)

GO GO PORTUGAL!
