You must understand something about Greece.
Whe know our players are not as good as other countries
so we have to play defense and hope for a lucky shot
at the opponent.
You can't realy blame our tactic.
If we'd open up the game and go full offense
most likely the opponent will score 3-4 goals.
It makes for a poor game though and thats sad.
Believe it or not we still can't figure out how the hell
we managed to conquer the 2004 EURO ...hehehe...

I have to agree totally.

That is how Rehagel does it, the team lacks those over the top players other teams have, so they have to find a way to make up for that.
It really isn´t nice to watch, but it often is effective. If it wasn´t for Ibrahimovitch Sweden wouldn´t have been succesful.
In 2004 exactely that tactic has allready been succesful, so why should they change it?

It's not as much as greece's boring playstyle, but their foul playing that bothered me the most.

One greek kicked zlatan in the nads while he (greek) was lying on the grass "oops", later someone kicked wilhelmsson in his lower back while he (wilhelmsson) was lying on the grass.
Lets not mention how Ljungberg got mangled in the air when two greeks jumped on him from 2 different directions.

And lets not forget all the sneaky stamps that the greeks did when the judge was looking in another direction. :roll:
Sorry, but thats playground football, and has no place on a Euro championship.

As for me I say "Go Holland/Portugal!" 2 Nations that play both good and friendly football at the same time.

So much fir Czech VS Portugal... 1-3. No defense in the last 3 added minutes = easy goal.

At least Ronaldo only got 1...

I'd like to see a tie actually... Czechs played well and just got a little bit outlucked and outtricked if ya know what I mean. Anything that can help Czechs past the group phase would make me happy. Of course I want a 3-3 tie, not a nil-nil tie!

Damn it! Tried to get out of work as soon as I could ( had to stay much longer today - the interpreter is always the last to go home :) ) but I still missed the matches... Where they worth watching? The 1-3 score looks impressive.

The fact that Turkey beat Switzerland may make the last round more interesting - both the Czechs and the Turks will fight like hell in that last match in group A.

It´s so sad to see Switzerland out of the Euro. I never had much hope they would make it far, but i was hoping for at least one victory for them because i live just right at the border and the atmosphere in Basel would have been way better.
So sad.

The first game with the czechs was semi interesting with Ronaldo getting all the credit for Portugal (theres a surprise, hes the perennial golden boy for ESPN at least)

The second game with Swiss VS Turkey was apparently a great game with the Swiss scoring early and holding it till half. Then Turkey manges to sneak a goal in and in the extra time at the end (4 minutes... maybe 5) Turkey managed to get another goal to get the win over the Swiss and therefore knocking them out of the tournament. I missed the second game unfortunately due to a final but oh well, FINALLY DONE!

Swiss have been a bit unlucky to lose both their matches. Greece and Romania play anti-football, Portugal are just too damn divey.

I have to agree there. Romania won't make it far on pure draws and Greece plays the most boring football I have ever watched... including Football Americano which is extremely boring, trust me.

As for Portugal I was pleasantly surprised in the lack of diving that they did. Of course I was studying so I may have missed a few.

Interesting to see that Chelsea have decided now is the time to announce Scolari is their new manager.
He'd said he wouldn't make an announcement until after the tournament
