I see nothing controversial or provocative in my comment. 
This is a thread about the Euros, it’s a relevant point to make. 

Ok... Triggered:

 

No, it is not. What "Euros", games, championships, competition has to do with "problems" in US?

Not even to mention that sport shall be totally free from policy and any ways of public showing of personal "beliefs" .

Do you know that during Romanian empire even the wars were stopped during the time of Olympics?

 

And pls... Shhh... Do not answer. I have enough warnings ;).

But if you will, I can bet that this topic will not stay long (or at least "some" comments). 

 

Stay focus on the topic.

Decent start to the tournament and Italy never really got out of 2nd gear. Some good goals from Immobile and Insigne and Turkey tbh looked knackered and well off the pace.

 

They'll have tougher games i'm sure (Italy), but typically looked steady and pretty solid. 

 

Fantastic effort from Andrea Bocelli singing 'Nessun Dorma' at the start gave me insta chills straight off the bat. Roll on tomorrow's games!!

How can you tell me to focus on the topic, when you have gone off on a complete tangent and started talking about the US 😄

 

I made a point about England, and some off-field issues that may damage their performance in this tournament. 

I think you need to focus my dear. 
 

Anyway, you’re Polish right?

Are you worried your entire teams philosophy will be based around “give the ball to Lewa”?

Regarding the Polish team, you are totally right, the whole strategy is "pass the ball to LewY, he will do a miracle with it", that's why,  as I mentioned earlier, I am not supporting them at all.

1 guy will not make a miracle with 10 wooden figures around him with no strategy and idea for a game.

 

As for the other part of your message, I find it irrelevant and will simply EOT here.
(OK, I have to: why I shouldn't mention US since all this ... let's call it... IDEA of kneeing came from there? Did it ever happened before?...

Anyway, EOT from my side, unfollow.

Some of the other players may surprise you. Zielinski is a very good player, Szczency is a solid goalkeeper and Glik and Krychowiak have been very good players in the past, despite age and inconsistent form these players can sometimes have an excellent tournament. I think Poland could get through to the knockout stages if they play well!

Im pretty sure France is the favourite. With the return of Benzema, Deschamps is literally playing on easy mode.

Just happy to be there (Wales).

 

My pick as a slight outsider is Portugal.

I have money on Italy to win, and Lewandowski to get the golden boot. 

 

Surprises? I think Belgium to struggle. They start against Russia... in Russia, their second game against Denmark... in Denmark, and then they finish (Finish) against Finland all the way back in Russia. I think they’ll end 2nd or 3rd, but then go out in the first knock out stage...very tired from the travel. 

 

I also predict France to repeat the 2002 World Cup. Enter as faves and crash out in the groups. The 3rd place rule may save them though, but the first big team they face in the knockouts will take them. 

 

Spain to go far, Ronaldo not to score a goal. England to lose on pens in the 1/4s. 

 

Dark horses...Russia. Though, I’d love Ukraine to do well.

My national team - no comment :D.

"We" are laughing over "Polish Internet" that we are always playing three games:

 

1st - An opening game

2nd - An "all in-game" (last chance match)

3rd - Just last game to save some honour and go home
 

yeah, i feel this :D

I am from Croatia and cant wait tomorrow against England. Let the better win. As for predictions i think Italy is making good progress, as i saw yesterday against Turkey they were pretty dominating in all aspects, and that 3rd goal was very good teamwork. Italy can go far, so as France. One team especially that i like is Belgium. They could beat France in that semi finals 2018 if they had more luck.

Looks like he is recovering, has stable conditions and is breathing on his own.

 

I am an Inter Milan fan and when I heard what happened, I was shocked, I was literally going to cry, you never expect to hear such bad things all of a sudden. I knew Eriksen when he scored against Inter twice while playing for Tottenham, and since he joined my team back in 2020, he became one of my favourite players. I also share the name Christian with him, so I always felt some sort of affection for him :) And his late free kick goal against AC Milan in Coppa Italia is one of my favourite goals. He has been playing for Inter since just one year and was rarely a starter, but he is one of the most loved players by Inter fans.

 

I doubt he will ever play football again should he fully recover, but I am so glad that he is okay for now. Praying for him. 🖤💙

I’m still a little in shock, but he is in hospital and stabilised now. 
What a harrowing thing to see, I had flashbacks to Fabrice Muamba against Spurs. 
 

Wishing Christian, his family and all the Danes the very best 🇩🇰 💙

Apparently Kjaer was the first who helped him, I loved this

Incredible couple of hours in football! 

 

Such a surreal thing to witness Eriksen stumbling and looking vacant on the floor, to CPR, tears, doubt and everything else that naturally comes and is felt in a situation like that, to then watching it being continued at the players wishes.

 

Football when it unites is remarkable!

 

Fingers crossed he makes a full and fast recovery and great to hear he's alive and stable. Amazing really. There are genuine superheroes in the world.

 

The only thing I'd say is that showing the CPR and the whole 10mins after he collapsed unveil I think wasnt necessary given how quick they are to take the cameras off when a steaker appears. Just didnt sit right with me tbh.

Sorry but, the cameraman was a total jerk, you cant record a unconscious person in the floor during 10 minutes, knowing there is a lot of people watching the match. It was a disrespectful behaviour on part of the cameraman and the broadcast. Wishing the best to Eriksen and his family

Glad to see Eriksen is stable. He has sent greetings to his team mates which is a good sign. Massive credit to the medics, players, refs and fans who did a fantastic job with dealing with the situation. Kjaer and Schmeichel in particular from the players side!

Here in Italy Schick is laughed at due to his poor time with Roma and because he was bought by Juventus, but he didn't pass the medical tests and so the deal wasn't made. This goal broke the internet here. 😂

 

Amazing goal through.

I’m from France, so I hope we will win this year after 2016. We have all our chances, our group is solid, with the return of Benzema in add, we can do something. I can’t wait to see Benzema, Mbappe and Griezmann together in a tournament !

You won 98 the World cup 2000 and 2018 again World Cup and now 2020 Euro
