    Belgium should win this easily, but considering what's happened in this Euro so far I'm too scared to make any predictions :laugh:

    They don't even have to win, Sweden MUST win.
    Italy and Belgium for me, the both other team are going home.

    Hmmm my least favourite thing abotu this Euro is how difficult it is to figure out who's gonna go through in the group stage compared to the past ones where you could just do it all in your head without having to read it.

    That and the ****** pitches.

    Sweden looks half decent in this game. Not much worse than Belgium, though the technical ability of the neighbours should make the difference in the end.

    This Italy-Ireland match is something like a League 1 relegation scrap, fouls galore, awful pitch, ball constantly in the air

    Germany-Slovakia is going to be on this terrible pitch. Could disrupt Germany's passing game a LOT.

    Swedish commentators said they will put new grass there after this game.

    And Insigne still can't get a shot. Meanwhile we're treated to 90 minutes of Ciro ****ing Immobile.

    I liked Bernardeschi tonight but I've been watching a bit distractedly.

    What a joke. That's a dangerous play? Alderweireld had his head stuck in the grass

    3 minutes on and Insigne has already created more than Immobile did in 73. Nice Conte.

    Insigne does more with his first touch than anyone else in the whole game.

    I kind of laugh when I see Immobile playing just because of the name wo an Italian annunciation.

    Even that pitch somehow would manage to be better than the one those sides played each other last on. :laugh:

    It's funny because running is one of the few things he does well. "Offside" would be a more fitting surname.
