At the Copa:
- The baby blue from Argentina are definitely having trouble coping with the latest let down at the Copa. Messi may well be the most talented player alive, but if he can’t come through in the big moments, he can’t really carry the mantle of soccer’s best. Congratulations again to the champions from Chile.
- Poles vault into the next round when Swiss miss too many penalty kicks.
- Hazardous duty for Hungary trying to contain Captain Eden and the talented, highly regarded Belgians.
- Like clockwork, the Germans make the goals arrive on time and stick it to Slovakia. Get ready for their next opponent to be drawn and quartered in the Euro 2016 round of 8….
- Vive La France … but the French need to play better if they intend to have a chance again big bad Germany.
- Irish eyes were not similing after this whale of an own goal sends Wales into the net round.
- He may not have done the damage himself, but give Ronaldo credit for setting up Quaresma for the blast that propelled Portugal into the Quarters.
