Euro2004 - The Opening Weekend Predictions
With the first 4 games in the tournament completed let's see how right my predictions were:
Portugal vs. Greece
My prediction = 2-0 - Actual Score = 1-2
Hmmm, an inauspicious start there. I misjudged the organisational skills of Greece and totally forgot about how shite Portugal's defence is. Still, at least one-trick-pony-Ronaldo was to blame for the penalty...ha,ha,ha
Spain vs. Russia
My prediction = 0-0 - Actual Score = 1-0
For 60 minutes I was dead right...then the Spanish manager makes a double substitution and Spain score. Bugger.
Switzerland vs. Croatia
My prediction = 0-1 - Actual Score = 0-0
Oohh, I was so close. Dire game with Croatia just on top. The Swiss get a man sent off and surely Croatia will score a goal...they don't.
France vs. England
My prediction = 1-1 - Actual Score = 2-1
Another very close one. Becks misses a penalty to keep England ahead by one goal, Zidane knocks in a freekick...there were go. But what's this dodgy back-pass final minute French winner? Ahhhh crap.
Will I ever be right? - Come and see how I get on tomorrow!
