    I am not gonna make any predictions but I think the favorites are clear; Belgium, England, Spain, Portugal and France followed by Netherlands and Italy.

    Huh, TIL. Apparently the only international tournament that doesn't.

    It's pretty new I think, one or two tournaments. But they're right, nobody cares about the third place. And honestly, I don't think any team wants to play for it, either. If you miss on the final, what else you got to play for?

    I have had a really difficult time guessing who wins it but our state news channel has a competition where you can put your guessed scorelines and you get points. The program calculates the knock out stage and from there it is was only to choose one nation per matchup and I ended up with France as the winner there so I'll go with that (and Portugal as runners up)!

    The Netherlands made it to the semifinal there, one can only dream... For the fellow Netherlands supporters, even though I'm from Finland I have cheered on the Netherlands since 2008 and support them with my whole heart! Well now I obviously got to cheer for Finland aswell but hopefully they don't meet

    Winners: France
    Runners up: Portugal
    Golden Boot: Depay
    Golden Glove: Do they have this and is it for most clean sheets? Ahh fuck it, Neuer even though Germany's defence is shite.
    Player of the Tournament: Frenkie De Jong

    I was thinking Fernandes too for golden boot, then realised Ronaldo is not gonna let him near pens or free kicks

    Nice offensive football byt Italy. Nothing I remember them as, at least not this level.
    Lovely
    Fox News Media is proud of our 2020 election coverage, which stands in the highest tradition of American journalism, and we will vigorously defend against this baseless lawsuit in court," the media company said in its response.
    Equally outrageously hilarious as sad

    Nice one, Italy!

    pretty easy for italy, they desperately need to practice set pieces. Those corners and free kicks were shockingly poor.

    Immobile over 1 shot, over 2.5 goals and italy to win! lets fucking go. now i can lose my profits on wales tommorow.

    Alright game, Switzerland should have won by a couple

    I might have to start watching in a language I don't understand if savage commentates a lot. It's like he's watching a badminton match. Surely they gave him a tryout and noticed how bad he is, it feels like he forgets every single football match he has ever seen before every game he's involved in

    This is truly scary shit. There was a close up on him seconds before and he just looked tired, then completely collapsed.

    Hoping the best for him, but this doesn't look good.

    They should turn the cameras off which are on the pitch and go to the studio. At least stop focusing on what was going on, the public didn't need to see the CPR efforts or distraught players and his wife.

    This is pretty horrifying to watch. I really bloody hope he is ok but that looks awful.

    Agreed, when the players started shielding him, whoever the film crew is for the tournament should take the hint and stop. Tell the national services you're cutting back to the studio in 30 seconds.
