I enjoyed the Germany games. Pretty much every Germany game was entertaining and it was a shock to me because I've mostly always found them bland and boring.

Germany was great to watch in 2010. Prime Ozil breaking through for his NT.

Hang on was that the tournament when Barry made Ozil look like prime Ronaldo? Laughing

I vaguely remember it now, not very well though.

Vuvuzelas, Luis Suarez handball, Diego Forlan going HAM at old age, Ghana's quest to make history, Asamoah Gyan and the dance, first WC in Africa, Tshabalalaaaaaaaaa, Spain's uncrackable formula of possession football and stable defence.

I can barely remember what happened two years ago in Brazil besides Germany drubbing Brazil and Netherlands doing the same to Spain


As if 14 did not have any apart from 7-1 Laughing

Suarez biting Chiellini, Costa Rica topping group of death, Netherlands and Chile destroying Spain, Pepe headbutting Muller, Spain, England, Italy and Portugal all going out of the group stages, James's goal against Uruguay, the dramatic Brazil/Chile penalty shootout I could go on and on.

Matches were hella entertaining too. Group matches like Italy vs England, Brazil vs Mexico, Australia vs Netherlands, Switzerland vs Ecuador etc were amazing matches.

I'd go further, probably since WC 1998. Euro 08 was amazing though.

I liked it it.. a lot Cool

This Euro made me really happy and brought lots of good moments..

The game vs Portugal was the most exciting NT match I have seen in a long time, and I know all the neutrals enjoyed it, too.

Even after the last 16, I thought the tournament was good.

I think the problem is the number of teams and I dont mean too many teams, just the number. The World Cups with 24 teams didn't work, you have too many meaningless games, third place teams advancing, which cheapens the whole thing. This Euro was probably no worse then 04. I suspect we will see 32 teams within 8 years, probably four.
