    Ireland Definitely got what they deserved in the goal second half but seem to tire at the end and Sweden deserved their goal , be gutted to concede but it was the fair enough result based on the second half.

    Re: Euro 2016 Group E Discussion Thread

    Ok so I was speaking to my brother in law the other day since he was telling me how Belgium are one of the teams to watch because of how much talent they had and I told him straight, they have a lot of great talent but haven't really worked out how to work as a team unit as of yet. That first half is proving me right.

    Belgium have so much talent and legit should be one of the biggest threats in this tourney, In terms of player quality they could go all the way to the Semis but they just don't seem to know how to fully connect as a team just of yet, Italy are playing them off the park right now. Until they begin to really know how to connect as a team they won't go far in comps such as this.

    This match has been a case study in one team overplaying their "on paper" talent level and the other doing the exact opposite.

    Agree with CGS to a point, think Belgium have improved in the second half though giving this equaliser a real push!

    Great goal from Italy. Watching this game Candreva is some player, hasn't stopped running and brilliant with the ball.

    I take back my previous remarks about Italy, they were fantastic tonight. #GoConte

    What a great game that was a little end to end second half but I think pellar made up for his sitter of a miss with that volly to finish it off, two great goals from the Italians.

    Lukaku should of done far better with his chance could of changed the game that going in.

    Obviously very pleased with the result, as well as the performance from Italy, especially defensively. Pelle was fantastic up top and as mentioned above, Candreva was brilliant down the right. Was impressed with Immobile and De Sciglio when they came on.

    Belgium made it a great match and should have scored; Origi in particular was very wasteful. He should have scored that header.

    Italy's performance was almost up there with Germany I'd say.

    Italy had the best performance from the top teams. Germany, Spain and France looked more vulnerable.

    Re: Euro 2016 Group E Discussion Thread

    Hard not to be impressed by Italy there, they had the toughest game of all the big nations' opening matches, I didn't see many people backing them to win, and yet they won comfortably. Lot of late goals banging in this tournament so far.

    Can't echo what CGS said enough, everytime I watch Belgium they flatter to deceive and look like a team of individuals not on the same wavelength as each other. I hope Jon watched that game tonight and he learned why I told him Lukaku ain't all that. He was so shit tonight. I loved him at the Albion 4 seasons ago, but he stopped improving as a player years ago.

    Yep I agree with what everyone has said and backed Italy to win before the game with Pelle scoring at anytime. Order's a happy bunny. £30 in the back pocket.

    Belgium will get through but it wouldn't surprise me if they finish third overall in that group. Ireland and Sweden are no pushovers.

    Re: Euro 2016 Group E Discussion Thread

    The thing with Belgium was Italy sat off and let them have the ball nullifying the threat of Lukaku on the counter. The one time he did get in he fluffed it. They needed someone to hold the ball up and at this level Lukaku's touch isn't good enough.

    How Fellaini lasted 90 is beyond me. And what team does Giacherrini not play for again hahaha

    Re: Euro 2016 Group E Discussion Thread

    This was my fave game of the tournament so far. Very pleased that Italy won. Very good performance. On paper this is the weakest Italian squad I've ever seen for a tournament. They're not the favourites but I'd love to see them win the tournament. That's how you deal with the the world number 2 team/the golden generation. Pelle's goal was fantastic and Bonucci's long ball to Giaccherini was also fantastic.

    Good point for Republic of Ireland.

    Really hope Italy do Sweden and field a weakened team against us for final game. Have a feeling Belgium are gunna be in murderous form tomorrow. I'd take another point hands down.

    I do think this will be one of the two groups where only two teams qualify.
