Yesterday was a big day for 2 reasons:
1 - My Grandma's Birthday
2 - The European Championship has started.
Kicked of with the game between Poland (one of the hosts) and Greece, and although in the first half I wanted Poland to win, because, honestly they played better, after the ref completely destroyed Greece with a bunch of STUPID decisions, I changed my mind in the second half and wanted Greece to win. It was a draw at the end, which, I guess did and didn't help any of the teams, depending on how you look at it.
The second match of the group was between Rusia and Czech Republic, and Rusia practically humiliated the Czechs. 4-1 final score, and the russians take the lead in a group they were already considered favorites in.
Anyway tonight is a match I really was looking forward to. One of my favorites to the trophy, Portugal is playing Germany. Gonna be an exciting match between a spectaculous team with incredibly technical players like Portugal, and a pragmatic team, a well oiled machine like Germany.
Another interesting match will be the day after tomorrow.My other favorite for the trophy, Spain is playing Italy. A match between two of the strongest teams in Europe and the world. It's gonna be excited, Spain never won against Italy in an official game, but they're defending champions. Can't wait for tonight.
I feel like I should say my favorites for the trophy are Spain, Portugal and The Netherlands. (in this order)
