Couldn't care less who won it really, just wanted to see a worthy final, sadly, we didn't get that, it wasn't until Portugal scored and the then last 10 minutes of extra time that we actually got a game, both sides seemed to scared to lose it rather than brave enough to win it, Portugal done what they done for the whole tournament, just rode the storm, parked the bus and hoped to catch something on the break, and they did, and fair play to them, it worked!
Ok, so what do people think about the 24 team format? I personally liked it, having watched many of these Euro and WC's over the years, the two teams coming out of a group has lead to the first round of group matches being very negative and teams not wanting to lose, however, having the opportunity of 3rd placed sides getting through it took that negativity away and the first matches seemed to get some winning games, however, having said all that, it has lead to a drop in quality slightly, thats because poorer sides have been in the tournament, i.e. Iceland, Northern Ireland, Albania etc and it seems that format is the way ahead according to UEFA so we can expect more of the same, but on the upside, it has meant an extra week of games, so as a football fan we can't moan at that!!!!
Overall, I have enjoyed it, the underdog stories have been the best for me, and the England team, were completely predictable, absolute dogshit, and I don't see that changing for many years to come.
Generally thought, its been good, roll on 2020!
