Great strike by Bale!
going to be the star of the tournament
My boy Bale is so special.
Great strike by Bale? How about no? That was horrible goalkeeping, he cheated and got burned.
He can shoot
Goalie made a big mistake tho
No doubt goalie made a huge mistake (so did the wall really) but he still got it up and down in a hurry.
it did have some effect on it and did curve, but I agree the goalie committed too much to his left he should've done better there.
can someone explain to me this "next stage qualification play off"...so the 3rd place teams of each group will play an extra game to make it to the 2nd round?
Ramsey's bleached hair is a crime against humanity.
He probably thinks it is 1998.
The 4 best 3rd place teams qualify for the next round. No extra games.
Joe Allen is very nice.
In addition, Kampl and Griezmann have already exhausted the novelty of that style. Being late and an imitator adds to the severity of his crime.
There's 6 groups. Top 2 from each group automatically advance to the knockout round (12 teams). The 4 highest ranking 3rd place teams also move into the knockout phase.
The winners of groups A, B, C, and D will face these 3rd place teams in the first knockout round.
Based on the way the bracket is set up, the earliest a 3rd place team could play another is the semis.
Wow Skrtel lucky he didn't get a red there
Ref has lost the plot, lots of ugly stuff.
Yea, he's not had a good opening 30 minutes.
Several fouls he's let go that should have been obvious free kicks, and the card he showed was for a tackle that wasn't any worse (probably was better) than one he didn't even call a foul on 5 minutes prior.
Skrtel's legs are completely gone. Stuff like that is all he has left on the pitch.
And he can hit a ball and put no spin on it
ahh I see, I just thought was some sort of new format for the 3rd placed team of each group.
Joe Allen and Bale <3
Allen is pretty underrated.
Yup. Kozacik is usually reliable but he made a mistake there. Not a good first half for us.
Apart from the freekick, Bale has been very average.
Ramsey is a mess just like his hair.
