Live - Euro 2008 day three

Euro 2008
comment on the article

Hi. Welcome to day three of the second greatest football tournament on earth.

I'm guessing you've tuned in for the Group of Death - that'll be Romania, France, Netherlands and Italy - yeah?

I trust you've warmed up over the weekend, so let the banter commence. It's a pleasure to be with you.

I listened to you and their is nothing stereotypical about anything I said.

I gave examples but it all comes down to this:

Every country has bad moments, just not as consistently or frequently as Italy.

I'm one the least xenophobic people you'll find. My kids, myself and my entire extended family all have multiple passports. I've lived a lot of places over the years. And I like Italians. Fantastic food and culture is a bonus too.

You just don't like the fact that I rate the side you like dead last. Sorry, but it's how I see it and I'm not alone on this.

//Although Portugal are probably second worst overall IMO.//
We're not worse than Turkey, Argentina and other hispanic countries and also several African countries....

Avellino, the infused science in football.. He knew his father very young and taught him biking. This fellow must a sports journalist. He knows every subjects by heart about football. But, he always feels aimed and attacked whatever you say about Italy. I know I don't speak English fluently, I don't care..This most important thing for me is that people understand. I think I manage quite well depsite I need practice. Avellino, of course, would reply, he could speak 5 foreign languages as he was only 3 years old. One think I noticed avellino, although you treat me very badly, try to translate this one : Une mle de rugby, il croit que l'on parle sur lui. It looks like you, I'm sorry. I never denied the fact Italy had four stars despite whatever you say. I only told you that France was the better side in the last world cup. So, for me and for most of the people in the world, France were the real champions.

'if you actually analyse' words from Avellino..you know.., football is real science for him ! He could possibly be awarded of the next football Nobel prize . ;-)
He only write 'dodgy' when italians made fouls, the others are only 'divers', he 'analyses' football that way. Italians got four stars cause because italian football is alchemy. Only Avellinno can teach you.

Good to see a game unlike the last one with all of the theatrics of diving by the blue team.

From a neutral's and football lover's point of view I hope Holland can reproduce their early form and beat Russia, though I think Arshavin's (Man. City sign him please !) a great player and may the best team win. Some of the football at Euro 2008 has been stunning and as an Englishman I hope it whets our players' appetites watching such glorious stuff. If it can't be Holland I'd like it to be Germany, because their record as the best team in Europe was overtaken by Italy when Italy won the 2006 WC, and I think Germany are worthier over time than Italy of the title of European Champions, BUT not if the Dutch produce their best when it matters - because the Dutch at their best are the best
. Spain might be the dark horses - if they can believe in themselves. It's a shame England aren't involved but we've shown a few times that when we cast off our shackles we can compete with the best in the world.
