Both teams had good opponents for the most part, some underperformed heavily (austria, swiss), some played better than expected (iceland, ireland), and croatia, poland, wales and germany games were hard as fuck for both teams.

Both deserve the final, hoping for a game like the one we saw today.

Imho this is going to be an easy win for France. I wouldn't mind being proven wrong in this case though.

Azul

If we, somehow, manage to win the Euro with this team itīll probably be a national holiday for at least a week.

Hoping for a 1-0 win with an Éder goal provided by an Eliseu assist in the 115ī. The football world would collapse.

I agree with Austria, but how did Switzerland underperformed heavily? They beat Albania, tied Romania, tied France, and then tied Poland and lost on penalties. If anything, I'd say they performed exactly at their level.

Portugal have lost last 10 matches to France... will it be 11th losses.

Talking about records Portugal is first host nation to lose in a European Championship final... will it be Frances turn to suffer humiliation on home turf... or will the curse of 2004 be haunting Portugal for years to come.

Viva Le France 3 - 1

When you say it like that, yeah, the results were good, but they played worse than I expected from them.

Why is sissoko playing instead of Kante? :chan:

thatdude
10 Jul 16, 20:14
Because they're using him as a withdrawn winger and he has the athleticism to do that, Kante does not.

He's actually been very good for France, looked a lot like his old self. He needs to get the hell out of Newcastle ASAP.

JJM
10 Jul 16, 20:17
Mario owned Pogba

Shit, feel sorry for Ronaldo.. knew that Payet tackle was worse that it initially looked. Portugal are fucked now

True, but Kante has also been good for France. He might not have the athleticism to be a winger but he does have it to burst up and down the middle. He's the destroyer that can spark a counter anytime, but with Matuidi in the middle, they can afford to play Sissoko I guess. I personally think they should have stayed with Kante.

IMO it should be Kante over Matuidi, who is the weakest link in that midfield.

Howl
10 Jul 16, 20:28
yeah Matuidi did better in the last game I think it was, but I expected him to have a better tournament.

Also I'm tempted to put money on Quaresma scoring the winner :lol:

Azul
10 Jul 16, 20:33
Very boring game so far, Portugal canīt do anything, the players are too nervous and missing passes even when not being under pressure.

Sissoko is being a beast.

Yeah it definitely dropped the level of the game. It seems like France has relaxed a little bit, and Portugal just don't look like they know what to do in the final third.

firmino
10 Jul 16, 21:03
france will win without even putting much effort. it was predictable before the match, it is even more obvious with ronaldo injured.

Azul

France was much superior in the midfield at first and was going through like nothing because Adrien was always against 2. With Ronaldo out we donīt play with 2 up front, mostly just Nani, Quaresma is on the right and Renato moved to the middle to reinforce our numbers.

Obviously with that we limited ourselves so much offensively and if we werenīt doing much then we arenīt doing anything now.

- - - Updated - - -

Lord Éder to the rescue!

Tbh he was actually quite good before 2 severe injuries.

Howl
10 Jul 16, 21:37
It's Joao Mario vs France

Also Deschamps is making some dodgy changes. Taking Payet off and now bringing Gignac on.

Deschamps is a moron playing Pogba so deep.

Brings another big lumbering oaf up front. Should have taken Gameiro.

Wasn't keen on Joao Mario before tonight but he's been immense.

Sissoko :pazzini:

One of the worst major tournament finals of recent time.
France need to show more urgency to win this. It's not like they have 500 minutes to score. Deschamps tactical setup mainly to blame.

Azul
10 Jul 16, 22:10
Éder actually is being a very influential player for our game, heīs gaining a lot of balls.

Deschamps.. No Kante, takes Payet, one of their best players off after 55minutes and then brings in Gignac in a Euro final.

thatdude
10 Jul 16, 22:22
Got to say Joao Mario has a fucking motor on him.

I actually really liked his game today, but I don't see how he helps us if he's coming to play as a right winger. He needs to play central as others have said. Looks way more comfortable there.

But France couldn't take their chances and fucked up, so well done to Portugal.. Wouldn't mind Joao Mario here if he keeps putting in performances like that, one of the best players in the final for me.

Portugal vs France 2016... Like Euro 2004 can go down as dull matches of the century

Portugal will be known as the team that drawed... and not won any matches in group stages to reach the final

Hungary vs Portugal 3-3 , Austria vs Portugal 0-0 , Iceland vs Portugal 1-1

10 Jul 16, 22:46
This is the garbage final UEFA deserved after expanding and diluting the field.

Yeah, it's UEFA's fault that Italy went from Del Piero and Vieri to Pelle and Eder, Spain from Villa and Torres prime to Morata, France has to rely on some kids instead of Zidane and Henry, and Germany's star forwards can't finish an ice cream cone.

Modern football is fucked. It has nothing to do with UEFA's formats. Any team that can defend semi-decently, no matter how crap they are, will pull this stuff off, because these modern "forwards" are disgracing the sport.

Joker
10 Jul 16, 22:55
feel bad for Griezmann..

KevinB
10 Jul 16, 22:57
Deschamps was very Wilmots'esque in his decisions. Gignac, Coman in for Giroud & Payet? Pogba constantly as defensive midfielder? Then Martial for Sissoko instead of Matiudi?

Weird game. Griezmann could've scored twice but instead a bomb of Eder decides it. Well, good for Ronaldo.

The reason why im happy that Portugal won is because France should also know how we feelt bad after that golden goal in year 2000.
