Dark horse pick is Turkey, could we see them in the Final? 

Germany: Low has been in charge too long
France: Deschamps and his exceedling large head, again can he get another tune out of them? Don't think so
Spain: Haven't been great of late
England. Defence seems weak and their keeper is a bird brain
Belgium. If De Bruyne is fine they'll be hard to stop
Holland. Nah

Switzerland and  Denmark are teams that could go far. It's a very open tournament 

Turkey for the Final anyone LOL. Other than that it was decent enough predictions. 

Pickford having a great tournament was the biggest surprise

Definitely wide open. 

Portugal is my prediction. 

It was wide open alright. Great tournament. And great to see a winner who hadn't won it in the last 50 years. 

Italy deserved it, most exciting and consistent performances in the tournament.

Fair play for those who picked Italy ..

Anybody have any big bets? 
Yeah, lost them all. Spain to win and Lukaku top scorer being the main ones. 

Had a few as the tournament wore on but like you, i opened with France to win and Lukaku top scorer.

Put 10 bob on Italy to win on pens last night, so ended well.

Which of the Euro managers do you rate the highest? If I was a top European club Mancini would be one, possibly Luis Enrique (based on his treble with Barca) maybe you'd give Deschamps a shot but Southgate, Martinez, Loew, De Boer and Santos less so. 

Italy are playing like they are the best coached team.

Yes the Germans were exposed at the back, could have been 4-4 that game. Still sticking with France.

Spain, Portugal and England don't look good enough. All a bit similar in that they've got big stars/regular starters not performing, but strong looking squads and its time for some others to get a chance now. 

Italy have been the most impressive side so far but you'd have to take into consideration their opponents in the two games. 

Belgium's first half v Denmark and their defence on paper would have me worried. Lukaku and De Bruyne are going to have to be on fire for them to win it you'd think. 

Yeah I’m looking forward to the knock outs as that’s when the tournament really begins. With 3 teams qualifying from most groups it takes away the excitement from a lot of the group games. I’ve only watched about 3/4 matches so far. 

Still think France are the team to beat but Italy could do it.

Don't think France were that bad yesterday apart from their finishing, they missed some good chances.

If Germany don't win it, it'll be down to their defence and lack of protection from midfield. Rudiger is brainless at times and showed that last night. They were left exposed a few times by their midfield, even when they were 2-1 up.

Portugal's midfield that currently starts are creative enough. They look better with Moutinho and Sanches playing but I don't see them playing against France.

Belgium were brilliant in the second half against Denmark. I’d love to see them win it. Probably the last chance for this generation and they play such good football. I really hope France don’t win it. They’ve so many good players but the way Deschamps sets them up, they’re so boring to watch. Like Baguio I’ve been very impressed with Italy but don’t think they’ve been up against much yet.
