Anyway.. Neal... my comment!

Kommer På Denmark

A close hard fought win against a tough opponent, I am sure you can win your group and go far in the competition. :D

Pauker: Hey well Bergomi can speak Danish and Italian fluently :P

Walter: Thanks, and yay Danish xD


Having already sealed a spot in the knockout stages and against the "lesser" opposition of Ireland, Bergomi gave a few players a perhaps rare chance in the first team with Jakob Poulsen returning to the midfield and Nicklas Helenius given a start up top.

Ireland had managed a creditable draw against Ukraine to start their campaign but were thoroughly beaten by Croatia after and needed a victory against Denmark and the Croats to draw against Ukraine to move on.

It was not the start the Irish were looking for however, as Ajax left winger Viktor Fischer curled a delightful effort around the goalkeeper and into the bottom corner 2 minutes into the match to give the Danes a 1-0 lead.

Denmark continued to dominate the match with Jakob Poulsen smashing a volley off of the crossbar and Ove Kjeldgaard putting an easy chance wide to keep Ireland in the match. However, a late lapse in concentration from the Danes ended up costing them the 3 points.

Right back Daniel Wass failed to deal with a long ball into the box and striker Kevin Doyle did not need a second invitation, smashing the ball home with one touch to equalize in the 88th minute.

"It's very disappointing," said Denmark boss Giuseppe Bergomi. "We cannot afford to lose concentration so late on in matches like this, especially once we reach the knockout stage. However, we must take heart in that we have finished top of our group and we are ready to prepare for the bigger teams."

Thus, Denmark win the group with 7 points while Ukraine also qualify on 4 points. Croatia and Ireland have failed to qualify. The final Group D table is as follows:

Damn, no time to use my classy-but-cringeworthy VIKTOR-Y! pun this time round :P Unlucky, but congrats on qualifying and good luck in the next round!

Now, show me the pics.

Super unlucky with the draw, but you still won your group and progressed to the next round!! As for Kevin Doyle... he is such a @!#%^$%@! :( :/
Congratulations on winning the group Neal! The Danish are truly invading the euros! :P
What in the world's hell.. YOU DREW IRELAND?! How do you consider yourself a good manager now? *facepalms and slaps Bergomi*

Jesus.. he drew to Ireland..

What in the world's hell is that?
For once I am with Pauker, Walter, what the f¥@k is that. Congrats on topping your grop Neal, but maybe you should think a little bit harder about your actions. Drawing with Ireland, I'm in good mind to send you to the naughty corner.
Rablador: I really wanted to use it! And no :P

Walter: Haha all that matters is that we won the group!

The Madridista: I like that (ex-)title reference :P

Pauker: Well I put out a number of second players and we had already clinched the group :P

Walter: LOL

Pauker: I don't know ahahah

edu1878: Sorry :( I tried, I really did! If we win the Euros, will you forgive me? :P


After an exciting, goal-filled group stage, the European Championship has now reached it's most entertaining and most dramatic part; the knockout rounds. 16 nations, having finished 2nd or 1st (and in some cases 3rd) in their respective groups, will now fight for the crown of Europe.

Here's a quick overview of each of the final group tables:

There were no real shocks as all of the big names stayed consistent during the early stage of the tournament and qualified for the later rounds in simple fashion. Northern Ireland,, Finland, the Czech Republic, Ireland, Croatia, Scotland, Hungary, and Israel will disagree, though, having suffered the ignominious fate of being eliminated.

As is customary, upon the completion of the group stage, the remainder of the tournament tree has been created, and is as follows:

The biggest pairings by far are Cesare Prandelli's Italy taking on Paulo Bento's Portugal while host nation France take on football superpower Germany. Dark-horse side Denmark have been given a relatively easy draw in Slovakia. The highest ranked European side in the world, Spain (2nd), will play Poland.

The first knockout stage fixtures will begin on Saturday the 25th and go on for the next four days, two matches per day. We all hope to see a brilliant competition unfold before us!
Some good draws, which are mouth-watering. Aaaanywaayss.. #GOSLOVAKIA! ;) :P..

Pauker: We will destroy Slovakia, don't worry ;)

Walter: And yet, at first, your manual coding failed :))
