    Deserved point for Poland... all 4 teams can still qualify from group which makes it interesting....

    Not hugely impressed with Spain....nice in possession but lack a cutting edge....

    A surprising and very welcome draw by Poland against a rather disappointing Spain.

    A much better performance than against Slovakia and knives which have been our for our Paulo Sousa can be temporarily put away.

    It feels good to be still alive in the tournament and am looking forward to the crunch match against Sweden.

    In Paulo (and Robert) we trust! :)

    It was great skill from Ronaldo, and great to watch. If it's "disrespectful" to the opposition, tough ****, perhaps the opposition can give it back with the same mint.
    I don't want to criticise Germany because they were very good, if only England could pass quick, accurate and mainly forward like that. I still wanted Portugal to win because their game is full of the unexpected, like Ronaldo's skills, their 1st goal break when he cleared a corner against, and finished it at the other end all in seconds, and Renato Sanches sudden explosive shot from distance which hit the post while Neuer hadn't moved, and would have made it 4-3...

    Never understood this ‘disrespectful’ stuff. I love seeing players show off, and given the QPR icon players I expect most on here do too. Stan used to mock opponents on a regular basis, and it was great. It’s entertainment.

    And they have changed most of their team for this one. The spirit within the squad looks exceptional too, but I think the Welsh match them on that.

    Nice to see an Italian team that doesn’t shut up shop when it takes the lead.

    Wales down to ten, deservedly so, late studs up stamp.


    well done Wales, through to the knock out rounds, nobody will e that keen to face them.

    Interview with Dykes in the Times today. To be honest he comes across as a bit of a wannabe thug. Still, if he makes a nuisance of himself on the pitch, fair enough.

    QPR not mentioned at all.

    Billy Gilmore tests positive for Covid...and out of the Croatian match.

    Scotland team says there are no close contacts so the rest of the team can train as usual.

    I know he run around a lot and was pretty elusive..but no close contacts...

    To be fair, a lot of very good strikers in the past like to put themselves about a bit - the difference today is there aren’t enough ‘hard’ defenders around who would deal with them today. So they can get the defenders on the back foot, worrying and harrying them.
    Hopefully he will be making enough waves next season to make lots of links the us.

    Definitely none of the England midfield got near enough to him to catch it.

    Two thoughts watching the Finland vs Belgium game. First is that the competition is getting much more interesting as the group stages draw to a close, and there is a bit more to play for. That said, also a shame that so many teams who finish 3rd will also go through...kinda takes some of the edge of the competition for me. Good chance England will go into tomorrow's game knowing they have already qualified due to Belgium or Denmark winning tonight. Just takes some of the excitement away.

    Denmark lead 1-0, nice goal but questions about the keeper.......

    Brilliant atmosphere in the stadium.......almost forgot what it's like to hear a crowd in full voice....

    Almost a 2nd for Denmark
