So after ten long years we finally made it to a major international tournament. Lets hope that we can forget the state the country is in for two weeks.
We've been drawn in a very tough group with Spain, Italy and Croatia.
Schedule is as folllows.
June 8th - Opening ceremony, followed by Poland V Greece KO @ 17:00
Czech Rep v Russia @ 19:45
We kick off our campaign on Sunday 10th against Croatia. KO @ 19:45.
Next game is against current World and European champions Spain on Thurdsay the 14th @ 19:45.
Final group game sees us take on Trap's homeland Italy on Monday the 18th, also kicking off at 19:45.
Full schedule can be found on http://www.uefa.com/uefaeuro/index.html.
This thread is for a light hearted outlook on the finals. Serious discussion on the matches/players etc can be had over on the soccer forum. The usual After Hours rules apply for everything else.
Heres hoping we can make it out of the group stages and we can have a couple of evenings where the country goes a bit mad. I'll most likely watch most of the games at home with a slab of cans(€24 in Tesco) I hate watching football in pubs.
I'll also be looking forward to Uncle Woy getting the sack after Engerland get dumped out at the group stages and Fernando "Ladyboy" Torres failing to kick the ball in a straight line for the entire tournament.
Will you be watching?
Do you care?
Will Dunphy lose it on live tv again?
The women won't like the soaps being all over the place for two weeks.
