A good win by Croatia over Turkey. Should have been more than 1-0 though. The Turks looked really poor and the Croats should’ve scored at least twice.
A disappointing Poland - Northern Ireland so far (half time). I guess Poland will score a winner in the second half, they are clearly the better team. It’s probably nice for countries like Northern Ireland, Albania, etc. to be present on a large tournament, but they don’t add much to international football, imo. Luckily Wales showed something as a newcomer yesterday. But then again, they have Bale, an abolute top class player. I didn’t see a player like bale in the Turkish, Albanian or Northern-irish team.
Looking forward to the match of the day, tonight at 21 h :
UKRAINE - GERMANY
I’m curious to see how strong Germany is at the moment. They were strugling a little during the qualifications, but that might have been a matter of concentration. They knew they would qualify no matter what.
I don’t know much about the Ukrainian team, but somebody who knows Eastern European football well, told me he didn’t expect much from this team, so I predict a rather comfortable win for Germany.
