    Hungary have been a lot better than anyone was expecting. I don't think this is easy passage for Belgium.

    I could see Belgium screwing this up, no problem.

    Hungary have been playing real well - and I picked them as my dark house to win, and after winning the group, I'm not backing down now.

    Will Hungary benefit from deflections ?

    Oh Belgium are more than capable of ****ing this up. People were saying Belgium were back but it was against Ireland. Lukaku shows up one out of the 3 games. The rest he looks pathetic. Just a lack of cohesion and game plan, it doesn't take an expert to see it.

    Belgium will have to make it to the semis on talent alone, because at this point they are managerless.

    Why on Earth has Wilmots not been fired yet?

    Belgium should win but Hungary will certainly cause them problems with their organized play and counter attacking. Hungary for me have been the biggest surprise because all we heard is how they can't score yet they did 6 times in group play and some nice ones as well.

    If Belgium can score early then this will be easy, the longer Hungary stays in it the more tense it gets. I predict Belgium win, 2:0

    Would like to see Hungary's run continue, even though Belgium looks like they've woken up after a shaky start.

    Lukaku scores within 10 minutes. Hazard scores late. 2-0 Belgium.

    Even though I named my cat after Fellaini (Meowouane Felini), I think that I will be pulling for the Hungarians in this one.

    I will have you know that I have trained him to just randomly go walk about in, or around midfield, without any clear or concise direction as to what it is he is actually supposed to be doing :sarcasm:

    What do you mean? They just qualified? What more could you wish for? :amazed:

    :sarcasm:

    Because the Belgian FA are a bunch of cowards.

    Wilmots is doing a better job being a politician (something he actually used to do before rejoining the coaching staff of the NT and sucked at too) than an actual coach with the way does interviews.

    Are Hungary favorites for this? They seem a team very likely to take advantage of Wilmots.

    I want to see Belgium win, but wouldn't be surprised if they fall to Hungary. Dzsudzsák will probably be good for at least one free kick goal.

    I laughed too hard at this chain of posts.:biglaugh::biglaugh:

    Go Belgium. Even if i'll have a hard time cheering against them in the QF, should they win.

    I'm hoping to see a goal by Hungary just to see them celebrating with crowd.

    I'm torn here. I really pull for the underdog here, would love to see Hungary through.
    At the same time, I don't have anything against Belgium and I love Hazard's game.

    Games today have been at a much higher standard than yesterday's.
