    2-1 Spain....Hiddink will be much more cautious I reckon but I think with Torres, Villa and Guiza we have too much for their defence. Senna will be key for us if he can track Asharvin and keep him quiet it will be easier.

    Wonder if Aragones will start with Cesc or keep him on the bench again? I'd be tempted to stick him in alongside Iniesta

    Hope so, been a bit rubbish so far with regardto mass brawls and sending offs. :( Croatia v Turkey was very disapointing in that respect. I had visions of 'passionate' footballers clutching the badge on their shirts whilst screaming bloody oaths at the opposition.

    Spain were better than italy, but not exactly by very much ...

    the upside would be a good spanking by germany in the final

    I was very impressed with Senna against Italy, probably Spain's best player.

    In terms of Xavi or Fabregas, I think Aragones will stick with what he's been doing, starting with Xavi to build a foundation of solidity, before bringing the slightly more advanced Fabregas if goals are needed.

    They're not even Europeans ffs.

    JHE .

    Spain will win!

    Well.... either that or I'll be a bit disappointed.

    Perhaps you football aficionados can explain something to me. Spain beat Russia very convincingly earlier in the tournament - but I gather from one of the Beeb commentators of the Sunday match that Russia was missing some star player who will be back in the team for the next match against Spain. Who is this superman? How big a difference will he make?

    He's a very fine player, but i think the world has got a bit carried away with the Russians.
    They played superbly against the Dutch, but then the dutch themselves did struggle to find their rhythm and looked well off the pace - with Robbens adsence especially noticable.
    Its not actually a particularly great Russian side, and i think Spain will win, though it will be close.

    SPAIN to win!

    I think there will be lots of goals too..... mainly because the Russians won't be able to defend effectively against the Spanish forwards.

    Much as I would like to see Spain win I strongly suspect a total Russian whitewash. Could well be game of the tournament.

    5 -1 to Russia.

    It's about time Spain won something, and they might finally have the team to do it. But it's also about time Hiddink won something too, and he might finally have the team to do it.

    I'd prefer Spain, but I fancy Russia.
  22. what exactly is that based on?
    or is it one of those incredibly negative predictions so that when you're fancied team doesn't do anything you can point and say "told you so"?

    i reckon 1-1 with going to extra time.

    then spain to win :)
  28. according to AS Aragones is considering resting Senna and Villa, playing Alonso and Cesc instead. Interesting.
