    Things to look out for

    You get points for spotting each of these incidents at some point:


    - Italian player making a praying gesture after committing a foul or being fouled.

    - A fight between fans of any 2 countries in Group B.

    - A Portuguese move involving over 10 passes resulting in a glorious opportunity which is missed.

    - Germany playing shit and winning.

    - England's absence

    The following for English members really:

    Tabloid headlines such as:

    - 'Swiss on a roll/Swiss roll on'

    - 'Czechmate!'

    - 'Germany Annex Group B' (or something similar)

    - Some pun on the word 'Dutchman'

    - 'Greece lightning'

    And the following pieces of commentary:

    - 'And despite everything that has been said in the past, from what we've seen today this could well be Spain's year!'

    - 'You just feel this tournament is lacking something...' 'Wayne Rooney?' '*much laughter*'

    - 'You can never write off the Germans.'

    - 'You have to say, that old statistic about the hosts always getting through appears to be in danger this time around'

    - 'Well, you just feel that referees have no choice but to give the benefit of the doubt to the defender when Ronaldo goes down, because of his past...'

    - 'Andreas Ivanschitz!!! Remember that name!!!'

    - Martin Jol growling excitedly as Arjen Robben does ANYTHING positive.

    - A 'big foreign name' (someone like Ruud Gullitt or Leonardo) talking at length about how England's absence is of great detriment to the tournament.

    - 'Can Greece prove to everyone that 2004 was no fluke?'

    - 'We can expect a real battle of wits/tactical game of chess tonight!'

    - 'I'm not sure about this keeper, John, his handling on crosses has been very very patchy...'

    - 'Polish fans out in force tonight...'

    - 'The Czechs, of course, everybody's dark horse for this tournament...'
