#365 - Chris: "This match reminded me of Spain-Germany in the 2010 World Cup semifinal. Germany looked just as poor as France did today (even after destroying England and Argentina). That's what Spain does to everybody now. It seems that nobody wants to open up and attack them... I fully expect Portugal to sit deep, park the bus and hope for a lucky goal too. Spain matches would be more exciting to watch if other teams dared attacking them, instead of playing like cowards." THIS.
If Ben arfa didn't act like a brat he could've played a key role in this French team. This team still has potential but could've done better at this tournament. France will be one to watch out for in the next world cup as I don't see their team changing much and they will only get better. They should go with a 4-2-3-1 formation and stick with it in my opinion, they have more than enough flair players in their attacking roles to cause teams problems.
WOODAT: Getting your information from Maradona is like getting it from Wikipedia. If you want to know what real footballers views are, ask Pele (a pedigree in football), a man who works hard to earned his reputation not someone that relied on coke to see him through 90mins of football.
What makes you think all the winnings portuguese has been getting, they've not been getting help from ref inorder to protect Ronaldo's position as 2nd best in the world? Get over it....I dare Porugal to come out and play against Spain and see if they won't go home 6-0 or more. If they sit down and park the bus, that will also force Spain to keep falling. You can't eat your cake and have it. It's high time FIFA/UEFA starts kicking teams out of tournament for parking the bus. That will bring legitamacy into the game in regards to being a champ.
IF THE REFEREE LETS THE GAME FLOW FREELY, PORTUGAL, C.RONALDO AND CO WILL EAT THE SPANISH ALIVE. Those little useless pointless spanish passes mean nothing to an attacking Portugal !!! UNLESS OF COURSE THE REFEREE... "BLOWS THE WHISTLE EVERY TIME PORTUGAL IS ATTACKING...." UNLESS OF COURSE THE "...REFEREE'S DECISIONS ARE ALL IN FAVOUR OF THE SPANISH" UNLESS THE REFEREE PULLS OUT YELLOW AND RED CARDS EVERY TIME A PORTUGUESE LAYER SNEEZES, LOL unless the referee has been instructed to help Spain... If that does not happen and the referee is UNbiased Portugal will eat Spain alive. ---BY THE WAY those quote above were Maradonas's right after the Portugal Spain match in the WC 2010. There is a video of that press conference in You Tube entitles "Maradona comments Spain vs Portugal [WC 2010] and talks about Cristiano Ronaldo" -- Just copy and paste and yoiu will see that more and more people including Maradonna believe fixing goes on in football. LET THE GAME FLOW NATURALLY, UEFA, AND PORTUGAL WILL MUNCH SPAIN 5-0 !!
The second spanish goal was absolute genius... scored by the referee ! Let's see Spain play Portugal.... LET'S HOPE UEFA's REFEREE DOES NOT INTERFERE because this time the world is watching and the world will SEE it. UEFA CANNOT FIX EVERYTIME AND GET AWAY WITH IT EVERY TIME.. It is easy to look good when the referee is behind you, LOL
The Spanish players ability with the ball is what wins them games, they are light years ahead in comparison to England in ball skills , or any other euroean team for that matter . they are so confident that they even pass the ball to team mates who have an opponant stading beside them, you will never in a million years see an England player doing that, its just booted up the park.
yyyyyyyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy viva espana alonso double to score the winning goal win this spain XD
cool this is stupid
Fantastic performance by France reminded me the the disaster of modern football played by Chelsea. But this time justice was made and the weak blue team sent packing.

France midfield is totally outplay by Spain. Blanc has wrong game plan, he should starts with Nasri and Ben Harfa, drop Benzema and Mvila. They should be more compact in midfield like Spain. Short player vs Short player. I think Blanc should start with Koscielny from the previous games ahead of Mexes as Koscielny is is best performer against Spain. France should have beaten Swenden to avoid Spain.
If Evra play it might be 4-0... hahahaha !!
Spain rule the world
Xabi Alonso seen in the picture above is making a sign of Wolfpack, which is a sign used by NWO. He 's a wrestling fan for sure.
I missed this game as I was busy having tantric sex.
LEGENDARY, So who are you actually supporting? What point are you trying to make??
I would rather lie naked in a bath of acid run over hot coals boil my head than watch france play they are sooooo fookin shyte it beggars belief thank god they are out although boring pass pass pass pass pass spain made hard work of it.

Scored twice to win the game and controlled midfield with a performance of real authority.
