Portugal out of Euro's

Can't wait to see the replay of this match. Germany beat Portugal 3-2 in a goal scoring feast. I feared that the teams would button down on defense and play for the 1-0 win, but it looks like Germany went attacking and with goals by Schwiensteiger, Klose and Ballack, the took the Portugese right out of the tournament.

Maybe the loss by Germany to Croatia was not a bad move. Croatia will face the scrappy Turks tomorrow and it wouldn't surprise me in the least to see Turkey come out of it. But I think the Croats will take it on a 2-1 scoreline.

I still think the Dutch have to be the favorite and right now I am hoping for a Germany-Netherlands final.
