Euro 2020. Predictions for 18th June 2021.

Sweden versus Slovakia. Krestovsky Stadium, St. Petersburg. 2:00 pm. Sweden gave a decent account of themselves against Spain, in an organised, and disciplined performance where they could stolen the game, if Berg hadn’t missed a sitter after a set-up from Isak. Sweden will have to show more on the ball against Slovakia today and IContinue reading “Euro 2020. Predictions for 18th June 2021.”

Denmark 1 Belgium 2. Group C. 17th June 2021

Belgium beat Denmark 2-1 at the Parken Stadium, Copenhagen today in the European Championship 2020 match. Denmark scored after two minutes from a well taken finish from Yussuf Poulsen. Denmark took the game to Belgium with a very good first half full of pace and intensity, restricting Belgium to no shots on goal in theContinue reading “Denmark 1 Belgium 2. Group C. 17th June 2021”

Euro 2020. Predictions for 17th June 2021.

Ukraine versus North Macedonia. Group C Arena Nationala, Bucharest. 2:00 pm. Ukraine, while beaten by the Netherlands still scored two goals and still looked like a team that will probably make the second round of this tournament. Their defence did not look good against the Netherlands, and it should have been a more comfortable victoryContinue reading “Euro 2020. Predictions for 17th June 2021.”

Euro 2020. Predictions for 16th June 2021.

Russia versus Finland Group B Krestovsky Stadium, St. Petersburg. 2:00 pm. Russia were very poor against Belgium last Saturday, barely asserting themselves on the ball, and conceding two soft goals in the first half. Russia even with two home games, won’t get out of the group in my opinion. Finland won their first match everContinue reading “Euro 2020. Predictions for 16th June 2021.”

Euro 2020. Predictions for June 15th 2021.

Hungary versus Portugal. Group F Puskas Arena, Budapest. 5:00 pm. Reigning Champions of Europe, Portugal are one of the favourites for the competition with possibly a stronger squad on paper(matches are still not won on paper), then the team that won the competition in 2016. Portugal have excellent players in almost every position on theContinue reading “Euro 2020. Predictions for June 15th 2021.”

Euro 2020. Predictions for 14th June 2021.

Scotland versus Czech Republic Group D Hampden Park, Glasgow. 2:00 pm. I fancy Scotland this year to get out of their group (either 2nd or a good 3rd place) with home advantage, and a useful team with good players such as Andy Robertson, Kieran Tierney and Scott McTominay. Verdict. Home advantage to swing for Scotland.Continue reading “Euro 2020. Predictions for 14th June 2021.”

Hungary 0 Republic of Ireland 0

A creditable performance and result from the Republic of Ireland soccer team tonight against Hungary. The first half was a solid defensive performance from Ireland, but Ireland were still lacking a bit of a threat upfront. Ireland hit the woodwork early from a Shane Duffy header from a set-piece. Hungary had a header from AdamContinue reading “Hungary 0 Republic of Ireland 0”

Hungary Versus Republic of Ireland. International Friendly.

Ireland are playing away to Hungary in the Szusza Ferenc Stadium in Budapest, tonight at 8:00 pm. Ireland have had a poor 2020s so far.
