Nothing wrong with being confident as you are, but you need to be realistic for a minute. Turkey is an average team and they will be good but in a few years out. Turkey will not beat Czech Republic this Sunday, let alone Croatia or Germany.

Although Croatia or Germany is pretty stronger, I am pretty much confident we will beat Czech on Sunday.

I agree with you.

I can understand one rooting for his/her home team, but that doesn't mean Turkey is playing an amazing game of football. Swiss was bad today, so was Turkey. It was an awful match. The reason why Turkey came back with 2-1, was partly luck, and part because they were just a tad stronger than Swiss. It doesn't prove Turkey to be an excellent team.

At this moment I think it's too early to call a winner. Whatever the result of this tournament will be, I'm pretty sure the winner will have deserved it. You can't win a championship with luck and poor play. (only Germany can do that.. j/k :laugh:)

that turkey vs swiss game was unbeleivable. Also portugal keeps winning and that makes me happy. Now my french boys better get their heads out of their asses and win next game and i'll be happy. Also el nino and spain are doing well so that is cool to.

the fact that england isn't there is also awesome...

I am rooting for any team that rajputwarrior is against (Its a tradition!). I'll take the Germans or the Dutch.

p.s - Portugal and France... lawl! Although my blues have quite a few on the frenchy roster.

Netherlands is going to take it all the way. Their team is stacked with one of the top three goalkeepers, top three strikers and a solid midfield.

Italy is playing poor, Greece have underperformed.

Germany, Spain, Netherlands, Portugal are the strongest candidates to win.

Too early to call possible candidates. Like I said, the 2nd and 3rd matches is what will bring out the real candidates and so far, Portugal are the only ones that have been convincing. We will see tomorrow whether Germany is a contender when they play Croatia.

czech republic is NOT the team they used to be

easy win for Turkey i am sure of it.

they just got modric and forget the rest of the team.

Modric plays for Croatia, not the Czech's...

Anyway, I have not seen Turkey play anything like they should be doing to be honest; they were poor against Portugal, and again poor last night. Considering you have players like Nihat and Tuncay, you should be doing better.

well tuncay is a looser in my opinion. out of 10 games he plays 1 of them top quality others he sucks. i have no idea why people in england love him so much.

We do have great players.

Nihat has not scored yet but he will against czech republic

Arda, our young winger is a true prodigy and everyone saw his beautiful goal and dribbl,ng last night

Servet is a defender equal to cannavaro's calibre.

Emre is a true maestro in the midfield.

and so on

Czech republic does not stand a chance against turkey.

I really wonder who would be Turkey's oponnent in the final

not gonna be germany because we will meet up with them in the quarter finals.

but lets see whom.

Dude, I strongly disagree. I wish you luck for Turkey and all, but that's some unrealistic scenes. That win from Portugal against your team could be even larger, you do realize that, don't you?

I didn't saw the second game last night, but one thing is Turkey playing against Switzerland, and other is playing against the Czech Republic. My team, Portugal, had a lot more trouble dealing with its tight defense, aerial game and tall players. What makes you think Turkey won't? Saying your team is the best in the world, that it makes the greatest goals, that its players are the best, is not the same as them winning.

turkey had a bad line up against portugal. a terrible mistake by the coach.

he did not use the crucial players and he had a different mind in that game

now things have changed.

we will have an even better line up against czech republic.

the coach understood his mistake in the second half against switzerland and from 1-0 down we beat swiss 2-1

now we know our best 11 and we know the best 11 of czech repubkic.

thats why they stand NO chance at all.

if czech republic qualify from the group and turkey does not, i will upload a video to youtube and will repeat myself in that video 1000 times saying i am retarded.

Because of a deflected ball in the 92nd minute which happened to end up as a goal?

nope because of the beautiful through pass and dribbling by turkish players in the last minute.

thatg would be a goal even if it was not deflected.

I doubt Croatia can score a single goal against Germany... Our last 3 matches were crap, we barely managed to beat Moldova (1-0), had a draw against Hungary (1-1) and won only due to a penalty against Austria. :/

Strikers haven't scored since the match at Wembley, and that was in 2007 by a currently injured player. :/
