While the quarter finals of the Euro 2012 competition officially kicked off yesterday when we saw Portugal send the Czechs packing, I would argue that the real action begins today with Germany taking on Greece in a very politically charged match up (re: Germany-Greece bailouts). There should be a lot of political tension throughout this game.
But that's not all:
- Tomorrow sees Spain take on France
- Sunday is England vs. Italy
All very exciting games.
Of course, nobody would blame you if you were a little preoccupied with a more local version of soccer given the Cascadia Cup game on Sunday. Still, there's nothing that says that you can't enjoy both. Well, actually that Sunday game might be a little difficult considering the England-Italy match backs right up against the Portland Timbers
-Seattle Sounders match.
With that said, though, anybody want to make some predictions about the upcoming Euro match?
I've got Germany beating Greece, France beating Spain, and England beating Italy.
