Yeah agree.
Poland are capable of much more than they showed.

Absolutely. Where is that Poland who shot more than 30 goals in the qualifyers? The first 45 minutes belonged clearly to Poland and I even wrote a page ago deserved lead for them. But after that first half, as Pollo said, they just sit back and waited for the penalty. Concerning statistics they even ran less than Switzerland but nevertheless they seemed finished as fuck after 90 minutes. If they hadn't a gk with two miracle saves (one against RR's fk and another against Derdyiok's header) the game would have been over way sooner.

Not saying Switzerland played like 2012 Spain but well, it was obvious which team tried to win the game in 120 minutes and which team was only waiting for the penalties

Btw Shaqiri got rewarded as MotM. Well deserved imo although it took a long time for him to shine. After his goal he seemed like a new player. Beautyfull cross to Derdyiok which should have been a deserved assist, unfortunately for Switzerland the gk did a miracle by holding Poland in the game.

And the penalties Seems like we are becoming a new Netherlands. Very pitty for Xhaka to miss that pen since he played a very good tournament.

On another note fuck me, why is this Schär not playing for a better team? In all 4 games he played absolutely fantastic and his call into the team of the group stages by l'Équipe has been absolutely deserved.

Well, now at least I still have Italy to root for.

I hate teams that play like that. Score a goal and sit back. Also what ever happened to lewandowski. Somehow playing like matri.

Yeah Shaqiri was really good. But I feel sorry for xhaka, he played a good match. Looks like the arsenal in him showed up .

Schar-romagnoli maybe?

-----

But i feel you bro. Losing a match where you kinda dominated is heartbreaking. Remember juve vs milan in the copa italia final hahha, that shit was depressing. Not that we lost, but they way we lost.

It looks like it's not the Europeans of the stars, but much more the Europeans of the collective of a team. Müller, Lewa, Ibra… lot of stars are very disappointing so far.

Man how I'd love to see Schär-Roma. Both able to build-up a play from the defense, both able to carry the ball from the defence into the attacking third if necessary. Both very strong in aerial duels. Schär moreover very dangerous in every set piece with his headers. Yeah I definitely liked to see that combo.

Thanks for your words . Man the most disappointing loss for me without doubts was 2005 final in Istanbul. I couldn't eatch any football game for weeks and I felt so depressed for at least a week even in my daily life. They way we lost that final to Liverpool... Man... Still hurts

At the end of the day everything was on the hands of both teams best players; one scored his PK, the other did not. The trickiest game from the round of 16 because I did not if either team was going to bring their A game but from what I heard Switzerland was much better than Poland.

Lewandoski? Like many CFs now, they all try to be Zlatan now however they cannot do it at all.

Actually it says a lot about the qualities in top clubs compared to the national teams.

I wanted schar at milan before he moved to the bundesliga. Didn't heard about him since then until now. Did he have a good season?

Istanbul you say, well i was young at that time so it didn't affect me that much emotionally. But if it was today, i would be depressed for days

Schär had a very Xhaka-esque start in the BL. Didn't adapt to the BL as fast as expected and then had some injury issues as well. However by the end of the season he got more and more minutes and it seems like he slowly is getting his shit together.

Man you've got to rewatch the highlights of this match. It was insane. First 45 minutes we banged Liverpool like they were an amateur club from Serie C - only difference it was a CL final and we lead 3:0 after 45 minutes. Then in the second half we stoped playing football for something like 6 minutes, and Liverpool scored three times within those 6 minutes. I mean wtf!? From the equaliser on until the end of the game after 120 minutes it was again the same like before, we outplaying Liverpool like crazy and getting chances over chances. But it was like someone put a spell on Dudeks goal. None of our chances went in. Unexplainable. And then in the penalties. We failed hard while Dudek was distracting our players with weird dances on the line. Never seen that dances before and never seen it again after.

However, we were by far the best team in Europe and Liverpool an outsider. When you hear players from Milan talk about that game you see how they struggle even today with that memories. Pirlo actually seriously considered to end his career as football player - that's how destroying it was.

Man that night. I will never forget that bitterness

Good to hear. We should try to sign him then.

- I watched the first half. Irc maldini scored the first goal.. And then crespo two goals? One of them from kakas assist (best assist of all time imo).
But I grew up in a religious family, so when it was time to pray we had to turn off the tv and read quran afterwards for 30min or so.
I remember like it was yesterday, we turned on the tv. It was penalty shootout, serginho's turn. And the rest you know.

But it didn't effect me, like it would have done had it happened today.

Fuck it we got our revenge and a ballon d'or for our golden boy kaka.

If I hear ghose Lacroix rumours it makes me want to puke. Please no fodder from FC Sion, get us Schär

Yeah fortunately we got our revenche 2 years later, it's the only reason why I can rewatch 2005 finale (knowing two years later we were the outsiders in the final nevertheless we won, just like they did two years before). But those two years in between I couldn't rewatch it. Everyone just spoke about the hreatestfinal this CL competition has ever seen and I was like OK I'm going to kill myself

Maaaan that assist from Kaka to Crespo. Mother of all passes. Would like to see that scene but with the audio file from the commentator of Island flipping out
