June 27, 2008
Spain is through to the final. Please watch the final on Sunday.
As we almost come to the end of this somewhat crazy Euro 2008 journey, let's start giving awards to those people who make this tournament interesting and crazy.
The one with the craziest hairstyle
Dutch coach Marco Van Basten- he shaved his hair off right before the start of the tournament (weird) probably hoping that his team would be inspired to win Euro 2008 just like he did in '88 (even more weird). For some more or less obvious reasons, the Dutch lost.
The one who we will miss for years to come
Jens Lehmann- aggressive, scary, grumpy, yellow/red card, oh, and German. He is leaving Arsenal and off to a German club called Stuttgart. Let's all hope him well.
The one who we will be joking about for ages
Petr Cech. Why? The blunders he made against Turkey.
The one who is musical
Slaven Bilic- he is a guitarist and the Croatian fans were singing songs written by him.
The one who behaved badly
Joachaim Löw- he is nothing like Klinsmann. He was sent off during Austria-Germany and he SMOKED during the next match. Bad guy.
The team who is disappointing
Holland- they did very well in the group stage but they did rubbish against Russian. Without all these overworks from their goalkeeper/skipper, they would have been humiliated.
The team who is surprising
Russia- they got into the semifinal and one of the reasons is that they have Guus 'Mr Fix-it' Hiddink as their coach.
