Still Hoping For A Surprise

Conroy Maddox

Last night we were switching occasionally between two games, one channel was showing Italy versus Republic of Ireland.

While the other side had the game between Croatia versus Spain, I so wanted Croatia to beat Spain.

Croatia had many chances, as well as many shots on goal sadly they did not manage to get one.

Spain on the other hand got two goals; one was scored by Fernando Torres while the other one was scored by Ces Fabregas, both good goals.

It was very frustrating watching Croatia's wonderful Luka Moderic trying everything to get a goal, and then we took a brief look at the other game.

Italy had got one goal while Ireland had not managed one, then we went back to watch the Spain versus Croatia game.

It was in the second half that it was announced that Italy had got another goal; it was scored by Mario Ballotelli.

It was in the second half that Spain also got their second goal; Croatia had quite a few chances again and sadly missed them all.

Right at the end they had two good last chances that they should have nailed, both times the ball sailed past the goal.

Then they ran out of time and at the end of both games the scores were,
Italy 2-Republic of Ireland 0.     

In the other game it was Spain 2- Croatia 0, which meant that both Croatia as well as the Republic of Ireland were leaving the tournament and going home.

What a shame that teams like Poland and Croatia have left the competition, we are now left with all the usual suspects.

I'm still hoping for a surprise, it would be absolutely wonderful if Greece were to go all the way to the final and maybe even win again.

Well they have nothing to lose and everything to win, nobody thought that Chelsea would win the Champions League but they did.

Come on Greece surprise everybody and win the Euro Football Tournament 2012.

I agree, would be very cool for Greece to win. It may very well happen... Cinderella stories like that happen all the time. They have a lot of passion to fight!
