It's like Figo.
He's def not up to scatch this year but is still on the squad.
Plus, he is far to heavily depended on in the Portuguese side.
That's the tale of the tournament so far.

Good players under-achiveing and underrated players becoming the best players so far!

the main player that gets in the portugese side because of reputation is Rui Costa, he hasn't done anything worthy in years(when he was at Fiorentina) but he still gets picked ahead of Ronaldo and Deco
Yep...I agree.
Deco was amazing for Porto in this year's Champions League and Ronaldo reminds me of a young Zidane. (excusing the penalty give-away mind you)

But Beckham wasn't a penalty taker at Man U. Nor is he a penalty taker at Real Madrid. Funny how he's England's penalty taker isn't it?
I think he took a few before RVN came along, when Scholes was absent from the team.

I knew when he was taking his run up, that Barthez was going to the left.

Talking about great players, It will be interesting to see how Nedved plays. I expect great things from him.

Of course, but that doesn't mean it didn't take a few penalties against Bartex in training sessions...enough to give away the tricks of his trade it seems.

Nedved is amazing, rarely gets mentioned in the same breath as Zidane, Ronaldo, Figo etc but imo he is one of the best out there

Rosicky's another good player for the Czechs - but he's had a crap season, so he might be another one to underachieve.

Hopefully the Dutch can get it together and play to their potential, which would entail a few goals!

Yep.
His hair was a major let down for him but he looks smooth now.
Apart from the taped over ear piercings- looks like he's wearing Pat Butcher earings from a distance.

How do you think Italy will do in this Tournament?

i think italy will do well, solid defence, great goalie, if vieri performs and starts scoring, italy will go far

The way he hit the penalty was exactly the way a right-footer who isn't very good at taking penalties would hit it. Everyone knows right-footers will naturally hit the ball left, unless they're being fancy and placing it in the right (something that requires a bit of skill and guile). So if you're going to put it to the left, it at least has to be right in the corner, or higher than 3 feet off the ground otherwise the keeper will just save it if he goes the right way.
Yep - I'd agree with that.

Coincidentally, didn't nearly all the penalties that RVN missed last season go to the left (or the keeper's right)?

Ibrahimovic's penalty wasn't too great last night either.

Ok ok...back to football talk.
Sorry to dissapoint you but it's hard to just ignore this raw 'fitness' on the pitch.

after watching the Denmark game they may struggle again, they have an awesome defence but Sweden will cause them massive problems.

Camoranesi isn't good enough and they lack any grit in midfield without Gattuso.

was very impressed with Zambrotta

I reckon they should be able to take players on and off American Football style in football. That way Beckham can be shoved on to take free kicks and corners and taken off again straight away.
