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...

Good news for me, I have Germany in the sweep-stake at work....but I doubt I'll win anything.

Im surprised that the turks beat the Czechs and also that Sweden look likely to go out against the Russians. Germany and Italy do start slowly and then gather momentum so don't write them off. My tip for the semis is Italy Germany Croatia and Holland. Im not sure of the draw yet but if it goes to form I am still predicting a Holland Croatia final, although I am less sure about Croatia being the surprise winners. The Dutch look like they are out to destrpy anyone they encounter. If Croatia are likely to meet Holland in the semis then I think it will be an italy Holland final with the Dutch winning the tournament.

The Dutch would meet either Spain or Italy in the Semi's if they beat Russia on Saturday.

Croatia would meet Portugal or germany in the other Semi if they beat Turkey on Friday.
