The first fixture in the Euros finished Turkey 0 Italy 3 with all 3 goals coming in the second half... the stats show Italy worthy winners.

Next up Wales v the Swiss later today.

All this as Raheem Sterling and Jordan Henderson receive MBE from in the Queens .honours list UCMTSU .. ridiculous just how such young footballers qualify is head shaking.. Roy Hodgson gets one more understandably .
also the supposed non political knee taking is now being made political with Gordon Brown (the former Labour PM not an obscure jock football manager) saying Boris should show his support for this knee taking BS.

Pleease lets just stick to the footy .

Camorn the 3 Lions and good luck to Wales today.

I couldn't stay awake to watch the Eyeties as I had watched a disciplined Vietnam team beating a desperate Malaysia in their WC qualifier earlier. Vietnam leads Group G by miles so will qualify for the next stage along with hosts UAE. The Malaysians collected 7 yellow cards in their 62% of possession versus none for Vietnam during their 38% on the ball. Malaysia's loss means they are tied with Thailand on 9 points and both miss out on WC 3rd round qualification but Thailand qualifies for the Asian Cup on goal difference whereas Malaysia's involvement in the latter depends on the final group game v. Thailand next Tuesday.

And now back to our regular programming...

I was going to post earlier about Scotland's captain saying the lads are all agreed that they will be standing instead of kneeling as it sends the same message of solidarity better. However, I just read that for their game at Wembilee, they will be taking the knee so as not to show up the wokey sassenachs.

Scotland WILL take knee with England as Steve Clarke slams those who 'misrepresent' national team position

Clarke and captain Andy Robertson have both confirmed they will take part in the gesture with England but will not in their other Euro 2020 games.

If I tried to take a knee nowadays I,d need someone to help me up :D
All lives matter, including black lives and farang lives, including black farang lives.
Nearby Cambodia suffered World Cup qualifying disappointment as they lost 0-10 at home to Iran.

Back to the Euros.... Italy looked very impressive.
Wales need to beat Switzerland tonight (or at least not lose) otherwise they will find it difficult to get out of the group stage... Kick off 8pm Thai

THANKS MATE Marvelous gesture.

Good coverage of the footy on NBT ch 2 =D> .. they had to wait for the feed but included the national anthems and excellent picture quality .. well worth 300mil =D> .. oh only downside as its the national broadcaster channel advertising of Aerosoft products (very kind tv rights sponsors company) and images of the PM..

latest results

Wales 1 Swiss 1 a fair result and one i predicted
Danes 0 Finns 1 :shock: in front of what looked like a pretty full stadium in Copenhagen
Belg 3 Ruskies 0 my favs for the tournament eased past Russia .. Lakaku netting twice.

England v Croatia ko 8pm tonight ... i predicted a draw but England may just nick it

Sadly the football last night was overshadowed by Danish midfielder, Christian Eriksen, collapsing on the pitch and having to be resuscitated and rushed to hospital where he is said to be in a stable condition.
Eriksen, who now plays for Inter Milan, played for Spurs for several seasons making over 300 appearances for them.
I am sure we all wish him a speedy recovery.

I thought Wales were lucky last night but are in with a chance of progressing from the group if they beat Turkey and hope the Turk's do the same to the Swiss.

Matches on Sunday, Thai time...
England v Croatia 8pm
Austria v North Macedonia 11pm....I fancy North Macedonia to at least avoid defeat here..... watch them get tonked 6-0 now. :D

Yes, the picture quality was very good on NBT last night watching the Wales game.

Not sure i liked Southgates chosen 11 to start.... surprised not to see Grealish

Yes sneaked a win .. its wasnt pretty ..

3 adjectives sprung to mind

Predictable
Tedious
Unconvincing

Oh and Pickford needs kicking prractice .. playing iut from.the back.will lead to him conceding at some point.

On this performance the likes of France n Portugal Belgium Italy etc would beat England without breaking sweat .

Talking of sweat .... we gonna stuff the Jocks but football.isnt coming home on that performance

Talk about tight (in the end). At the 25' mark, England were on 73% possession. Great pressing game from the best player on the day, Kalvin Phillips. I guess Kane got worn out trying to keep up!

At least we were saved the predictable/Unconvincing/Tediousness of having to watch Grealish "hit the dirt" every time the opposition got within 2 foot of him :evil:

Watching Engerlund is quite like watching Newcastle really .......... start each half knowing what they are doing and looking good for the first 10 - 15 mins (depending on opposition) then opposition coach tweaks his formation to nullify our tactics and we are shafted coz our coach hasn't got a clue how to change anything on the fly

When he warmed up Grealish but suddenly stuck on 'kid' Bellingham instead, you knew they were going to park a bus.

They reckon Stones had words with Pickford for NOT playing it out from the back towards the end of first half. He kept blasting it upfield only for the Croats to win most of those longballs and start heading straight back at 'em.

On this performance 0-1 for Scotland.
