Very Cristiano Ronaldo Euro 2012 moment for Samaras.

Begs the age old question - should you leave your best PK taker for #5?

Bryan Ruiz great leader and player... Very surprised by him this tournament... Didn't even know of him before this.

Also Navas and Bolanos excellent.

Costa Rica deserved for 2 reasons:

1. They play almost 1 hour with 1 man down.

2. In extra time, Greece went on a counter 5 vs 2 and wasted their chance. 5 vs 2 :fp:

:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

The greeks had chances. Sucks they had the game by their hands and let it slip, penalties were the only chance CR had IMO after having a man sent off and going 1-1, and they did it.

Very composed penalties, once again congrats.

Hard not to be impressed with both Costa Rica's moxie and Greece's completely inability to attack. Greece should be able to build on this match for 2018 and Costa Rica is going to likely slash the tires of the Dutch team bus.

Serious question... Why is c4m so popular in this forum? Because he is crazy for milan or because he was member since 2003 or both? :D

I think she(?) is a very knowledgeable and reasonable poster.

Even when we disagree she does not attack rather explains her(?) stance. That's just my opinion, i haven't been here as long as some of the older posters so I'm not sure if there are other reasons.

BTW C4M, if the Greeks send you a wooden horse as a gift for the victory, don't take it. Trust me.
