    Default Re: EURO 2016 - European Football Championship in France 10 JUNE - 10 JULY

    Wales - Slovakia, Italy - Belgium, Czech republic - Croatia, These were all pretty good, then some others with many opportunities, overall wasn't a bad tournament in my opinion.

    Sad, that Italy lost in the shootout, would have prefered a Portugal - Italy final tbh, but the end result was satisfactory to me, especially after Ronaldo was forced out of game. Do hope the injury is not too serious.

    John Motson in a BBC article, quite nicely sums up my own thoughts on the tournament. "Euro 2016 has been a tournament of great moments, but not great matches."

    Highlight for me was Buffon, proving at 38 that he's still one of the top keepers in the game, with an incredible reflex save from Mario Gomez's backheel.

    Overall, I was disappointed by the quality on offer. On what planet is Pogba (a decent player, no more) worth 100 million?

    I agree with you, particularly on Buffon, I would also put in a word for Tony Kroos and Aaron Ramsay who both shone in their creative roles. As for Pogba, he had a great opportunity to seize control of games and prove his worth, but did not, he was anonymous at the World Cup in Brazil too as I recall. It is his agent who has set the bar high and if the clubs who want him keep their heads, they will simply not play along with a figure of 100m which is insulting. Not even sure 20 million reflects his value. I think Griezmann is the only individual who can set his terms based on his performance, even if he did fail to score twice on Sunday.

    True, tho got to give credit to Rui Patricio, that header was very clever and not all keepers would have made that save.
