chuffed for spain too. they have done superwell yesterday.

i am glad russia is out i would feel a bit strange if they would have won the european cup.

let's see on sunday... germany did not play too well against turkye. so there may be some hope for the spaniards, they would certainly deserve to win the tournament (for once). but of course my loyalities are with germany.

Only just recovered from last night....we had a fair few drinks afterwards. First half we were okay, second half blew them away.

Now here's to blowing Germany away!

And G force mate that's the short and sweet summation on how your team disected the Russians, especially in the second half. I watched the second half (missed the 1st half due to a power cut at home) and i noticed that Russia were were beginning to tire after the first half. Because of the amount of pressing in defence.

But Spain upped the tempo second half and effectively exploited the spaces in midfield and on both flanks, the second & third goals were beautifully executed. A good team performance from them, Ramos played his best game in the tournament, Fabregas neat and always creative, Casillas alert when called upon. But for me it's Marcos Senna who had another great match, kept Arshavin very, very quiet. Imo Senna has been highly consistent & pivotal to Spain's progress and he was good in World Cup Germany 06 as well.

Even though Russia disappointed me in terms of their muted and very flat display. The youngest team in Euro 2008, just like Turkey have been good to watch and they have got some potential to build on their good showing.

Great summary. :)
 
bit late but...

Wealthy Russian socialite Pyotr Listerman has offered Russia's players two girls for every goal scored in tonight's Euro 2008 semi-final against Spain...

The Telegraph reports that Listerman, who regularly sets up fellow rich Russians with prospective wives, will offer any goal-scorer this evening two women as extra incentive for Russia to reach their first final since the Soviet Union disbanded.

“For each goal I’ll present two beautiful chicks. Watch the guys react,” said Listerman.

“There are a number of bachelors in our team,” said Arshavin. “This is a great incentive.”
Twats.
