About as close as Total Football as you'll find in this day and age. Purely orgasmic watching these two teams play. The Dutch will probably win but I'm still looking forward to it.

This gonna be a great match, both teams play a nice football but i think that rusia team is too young for this level and netherlands have in all lines a best team vs rusia team.

Netherlands-Russia-> Netherlands

How is there no discussion about this game? Is everyone fucked up on heroin or something? To picture-quote our new coach, this is how this game makes me feel:

Should be a highscoring game.

Both are attacking teams with defensive lacks.

Im guessing 3-1 or even 4-2 to the dutch.

My bet goes to Russia.

Portugal, Holland, and Spain out in quarters!

Why not !!!

What a turn of events that would be. All the teams that were on top in the press after the group stages, would get eliminated, while "boring" Germany and Italy faves to go to the final. Haha, what a jinx that would be :>

Russia played the better first half, but it's an even open game, and even though it's 0-0 there's lovely play. Both teams are playing fast technical football as expected. Man I wish we could of gotten Hiddink instead of Mourinho. That guy's a true genius. Not only does he get max potential out of his players he makes them play great attacking football.


Haha, Russia score. Pavlyuchenko. Great finish.

I want Holland to win though.

Exciting game, not the highscoring game i predicted, but the chances have certainly been there.

Shame holland equalised, they didnt deserve it, they have been playing like shit like they usualy do when it truely matters. Even Inter a bad day doesnt play this uninspiring football as the dutch have this evening.

Russia have played amazing football, only thing they lack is being more clinical infront of goal.

Arshavin easily MOM, what a great player. There will be a massive clash between european top clubs for his signature after this tournament for sure.

Russia looks a lot weaker in the end. It looks it will be very hard for them in the extra time.

But I won't change my bet :D

I would never change our pick. Despite him being a great coach, his personality is perfect for environment at Inter. Simply because of the pressure, and because of the press being against us.

No argument Hidding is class, though.

What an amazing duo that is. Pavluchenko and Arshavin.

Pavluchenko, incredibly fast and agile, despite him being that tall. Great technique, vision. He only needs to improve finishing.
(LOL at Bologna roumors).

And Arshavin, just incredible player. If Arshavin could provide as much shirt-money as Ronaldo, I would take the latter if I were Real. Ronaldo couldn't do half of this at the big stage.

God, Dutch girls are so nice. I don't know what it is but they have that slutty look in their eye.

Anyways, good point Luka, but for me Hiddink's positives outweight Mourinho's.

Agree, they've been playing phenomenal football. Fully deserved the second goal. 3-1 Arshavin goal.

You mean Arshavin? Good player, he's playing fantastic at the moment but I doubt he would be that good in Inter. I wouldn't mind getting him but I'd rather get Zhirkov.

What do you know. I was right again with my bet LOL :p

So it's 2 for 3. Tommorow Spain, and I'll get my 3/3 score LOL :p

Breathtaking performance by Russia in Extra Time.

With this game, I'm more scared for Italy to play against Russia, than Spain. I'm not kidding here.

No slight doubt they deserved this win. Amazing performance, and just thanks to Van Der Saar the score was only 3-1.

Arshavin, Pavluchenko, Zhirkov, Semak. What a game from this quartet.

And this is no doubt the best team performance on the Euro yet. Lets not forget Russia beat the same team, that have beaten France and Italy LOL. Really, I would be shitting my pants right now if I were either spanish/italian.

Arshavin can pack his russian bags after this game. Same with Pavluchenko.

You mean Arshavin? Good player, he's playing fantastic at the moment but I doubt he would be that good in Inter. I wouldn't mind getting him but I'd rather get Zhirkov.
;) I wasn't very serious. I was just trying in other way to show how I was impressed today with his performance ;)
