So lets see everyones picks for the end stage of the euro cup.
Germany vs. Turkey
Spain vs. Russia

The spain vs. russia game is on tonight so make your picks soon if you can.

I'm picking spain over russia and then germany over turkey.

The turks have had a nice run but they have too many people missing now.

In the finals I have Germany winning over Spain.

oh damn, I wish America cared more about soccer so it would be easier to find out when the hell these games are. There is no advertising it at all. Atleast I "predicted" it correctly.

I know they are on tv, i've watched several as well. But there isn't much advertising saying don't forget to watch as there are for other sports like baseball and football and whatever else.

Well not only is it soccer, it doesn't even involve America. So I'm sure they didn't expect much of a fanbase.

I understand, I'm just saying I wish it wasn't that way. And if they are playing it on their station it would only help them get more viewers if they mentioned it more often.

Well, well. We're in the final, and playing some of the best football in the tournament to boot. But even though Germany has been relatively shitty, they're still more likely to win, if only because of tradition.

I've managed to watch most of the games and enjoyed most of it.

I was hoping to see Russia or the Dutch in the finals, though.

cool thanks. I think it will be a pretty exciting game. Spain has been brilliant this tournament but have shown they can be shut down like in the Italy game. Germany have been iffy but have shown that even in a bad game they can have flashes of brilliance and be efficient with their chances which seems comically stereotypical. So if both teams show up to play I look forward to a tight match that will be won with a great play.

This German teams lack of organization and defensive skills is an embarrassment.

I would much rather have watched them win 1-0 or on penalties after 0-0 than the two half-assed 3-2 wins they've gotten.

Germany hasn't shown itself to be the best team all-around, but they have taken full advantage of the opportunities given to them. Watching their place kicks against Portugal was something pretty special (although you could see some pushing and obstruction - but that's every team).

That was pathetic portugese defending + goalkeeping.

Of course Spain aren't the greatest at defending set-pieces either, so maybe it could work out.

Yeah, our defense has been playing better than they should, they actually kind of suck but are doing surprisingly good in this tournament, so there's always the possibility that they'll go back to normal today.

It really shouldn't suck because it's full of world class players, except Marchena, and Capdevila might not be quite world class but at least he's much better than Arne Friedrich.

But Marchena does suck a lot and Puyol was in alarming bad shape before the tournament.

Germany 1-0 even without Ballack if they decide he can't play.

I hope Germany wins because I think if Spain wins they'll noise up the city with their honking.

I predicted a 1-1 draw with Spain winning in the extra time, because I like wishful thinking.

Go Spain. Not the most exciting of games, but at least there wasn't too much diving.
