  1. this is what racist ukraine deserve

    From gurjeevan, on Wed 6 Jun 15:21
  2. Turkey should go to Euro 2012.

    From Yudho, on Wed 6 Jun 3:20
  3. Want Ukraine and Poland lose all the group games in the­ Euro - will shut up all the racist football fans in­ their country. Cannot see them winning one game both­ Poland/Ukraine.

    From V, on Wed 6 Jun 1:06
  4. @Dizzy, on recent performances, yes you are absolutely­ correct, but i have a lot of experience with Ukrainian­ club and international football and one thing­ that's for sure is that they themselves, the staff­ and the home fans will just not allow them to play at­ this level when it matters - thats just the way this­ national team is, they do their best to show how­ useless they are at the best of times and then punch­ above their weight when it matters. Take into account­ they have beaten England in the past few years, and the­ recent 3-3 draw with Germany when they used their­ counter attacking style which they need to use to­ perfection and were unlucky not to lose, once the full­ team is out there with the correct formation and­ players, they can definitely beat Sweden and further on­ it's impossible to predict. Tournament football­ always has some surprises and even the Portugal side­ with Ronaldo have been on a bad patch of form but you­ wont expect that to continue. Surprises will happen in­ this euro tournament so I would not suggest any­ pre-conceived predictions. Lets just wait and see.

  5. Terrible performance from Ukraine and as I said, if­ they didn't play well they would be defeated and so­ it proved. Anyone's guess why the coach makes 8­ changes per friendly and left out 2 of the best players­ in the team tonight. Morale will be very low now and­ the Euro group will be very tough with performances­ like this but you never know what will happen on the­ day. We will all just have to wait and see...

    From J, on Tue 5 Jun 21:00
  6. Tough one to call - Ukrainians are unpredictable and­ ravaged by injuries in defence and goalkeeper but if­ they play their best XI and play well they should win­ in a tight game, I would say 2-1. They will be fired up­ after losing the last friendly to end their unbeaten­ run so they will want their last game before the euros­ to give them confidence. The Turks are coming off a­ morale-boosting win v a poor Portugal but will provide­ tough opposition and will win if Ukraine don't play­ well. But it should be a good match...
