Football - Underhill

Germany - Austria / Croatia - Poland

Watched the Germany vs Austria match this evening. If the Austrians could play football they would have torn Germany apart. Mind you if the Germans could play football they'd have also torn the Austrians apart. Final score 1-0 to Germany so the Germans get through to the Quarter Finals where they meet Portugal. Croatia on the other hand pretty much played their reserve team against Poland, looked comfortable and still won 1-0. They play Turkey in the Quarters (which I'd imagine will be a lot harder match than the Portugal-Germany one).

The Germans are generally pretty bad but always seem to somehow 'get lucky' and progress through to the next round. Saying that this is the first time since 1996 that they've gotten out of the group stages in the European Cup so maybe they're just flukey in my mind...
