European Championship 2020. Semi Final Previews.

The quarter finals of the European Championship 2020, were mostly good matches of a high standard. Italy beat Belgium 2-1 in the quarter final in a great match of football. Italy scored two fantastic first half goals from Nicol√≥ Barella and Lorenzo Insigne. Belgium managed to find a way back into it, through a penaltyContinue reading “European Championship 2020.

European Championship 2020 Quarter Finals. Previews.

First of all, what a week of knockout soccer it was. Monday 28th June 2021 has to go down as the greatest single day in the history of knockout soccer. Two epic matches of exciting attacking play, drama and tension, with a shock as well. Switzerland, who are in their own right, a very goodContinue reading “European Championship 2020 Quarter Finals. Previews.”

Euro 2020 Predictions for 21st June 2021.

Netherlands versus North Macedonia. Group C. Johan Cruyff Arena, Amsterdam. 5:00 pm. The Netherlands have had a good tournament so far, beating both Ukraine and Austria.

Denzel Drumfries has being the best attacking wing back of theContinue reading “Euro 2020 Predictions for 21st June 2021.”

Euro 2020. Predictions for 20th June 2021.

Italy versus Wales. Stadio Olimpico, Rome. 5:00 pm. Italy have been among the most impressive teams in the tournament, with a great style of football with everyone passing and moving quickly off the ball. Italy have stuffed both Turkey and Switzerland in their opening matches. Italy have looked excellent so far, but there must beContinue reading “Euro 2020. Predictions for 20th June 2021.”

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.”

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.”
