No Turkey vs Russia 3rd/4th place playoff?

  1. No?

    Am I being dim? Is it on TV? Is it happening?

    I thought there was always a playoff for 3rd and 4th.

    Please put me right

    Such game does not exist I'm afraid.

    It's only the World Cup that stages a 3rd/4th place game. The Euros don't bother with it.

    That's right, the last was 1980.

    I've never seen the point of them tbh.

    Imagine if Turkey v Russia had been the final, it would have been a sad day for maps :(

    Usually I don't bother with the 3rd/4th place bobbins but what with this being such a brilliant tournament, I feel a little bit cheated.

    I don't want this tournament to end, because I'll have to fall back on watching the MLS on tv until the football season starts again in Britain.:eek:

    I know Euro 96 didn't have one, which would've been England-France.

    I bet it would have been a better match to watch than the final...

    The only consitently good England team I can remember vs the foundations of the 98 World Cup winners. I would definitely have been up that.
