Euro 2008

This year after soccer fan enjoyed the Barclay Premier League and UEFA Champions League, we have another big game -- Euro 2008. I know some soccer fans out there who have followed my blog for quite sometimes know that I love Manchester United, Brazil and Portugal. Some might simply accuse me for following Christiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro wherever he goes. You are wrong! I like Portugal since Nuno Gomes and Figo and if you know soccer well, at that time Ronaldo was not even in the squad yet. He was popular right after joining Manchester United, which I support Manchester United since Eric Cantona. So now ring a bell that I do not simply follow him wherever he goes? He is good, yes. Very talented and yes I like the way he dribble and netting goal. About many rumors cursing him as gay, I do not give a shit. His life, his problem. But as a soccer player, we should be proud to have him in the soccer arena. To have him in Manchester United and Portugal really is a bonus. Remember, he scored many goals this season and even won golden boot for BPL and UCL. What a player!

Alright, enough explanation about why I choose Portugal. So, stop cursing me!

Euro 2008 has been one of the best tournaments ever for Euro competition. It's hard to predict who will win the cup and who will walk home with empty hand. Too early to say anything as the ball is round and the competition has just begun. ESPN's favorite Holland and Germany might be right to be in the final as they played well for previous game but poor thing Germany lose to Croatia last night. Holland played well in all their games with many goals. They even won 4-1 over another giant -- France. I expected Holland will win big over France by 3-1, I was wrong. Love to see Robben in Holland as he was fast and good dribbling skill!

So, Portugal will face Germany if they manage to win the next game (yes I expected Germany to win!). This is a heart thumping moment of course as I can see Portugal is really missing Figo in the team. I hope Portugal can make a miracle by beating Germany. Lets pray!

For the team I predict will win Euro 2008 is Holland even though I never lose faith on Portugal based on Holland's performance beating two giants -- Italy and France. Go Portugal Go!

  19. axim - That was why he suggested Ronaldo to move from Manchester United to Chelsea? Grr!

    neomesuff - Very upset with Portugal's defenders that night. Fererra should be pointed out for the faults that he made twice! I assume Holland will win this Euro.
