    Could the Czechs qualify? Their coach is good, and so is their defence.

    Poland is probably worth 200/1, although I'm hardly objective, as I haven't wished a football team to lose as much as Poland for a long time.

    But the wrong guy received a yellow card... :rolleyes:
    Pogatetz didn't foul him, that was some a different player.

    why?

    Also Austria is playing good, and putting pressure on Croatia. I'd like to see what happens in the second half.

    Pogatetz got the yellow card for complaining. ;)

    But his foul could have been a straight red card.

    Absolutely. In fact i believe that we should not write them off if and when they progress the group stage.

    Pogatetz is playing for free now...He should've been sent-off already. Seems like the Austrians could tie this if they calmed down a bit and keep playing a bit more aggressive...

    1. Nationalism
    2. Far-right politics
    3. Catholic fanaticism
    4. Germanophoby
    5. Rusophoby
    6. Polish threads in CFC

    Of course I realize a lot of Poles aren't like that, but these are a number of things that have pissed me off for the last few years. And then there's the Tabloid antics...

    1. Everyone is nationalist.
    2. ok...
    3. we are devout catholics, but it does not mean we're bombing people for christanity. Also i assume you hate spain, italy, greece and romania for aswell.
    4. We don't hate germans, we just make jokes about them. :p
    5. Again, we don't hate russians, we just hate Communism.
    6. That was before bts got released and some polish posters here (i being one of them) wanted poland in the game.
    7. This has NOTHING to do with football. It's like saying that i don't want Germany to go to the next round because they invaded us.

    ^ Of course it has nothing to do with football, but you asked for it.
    I strongly disagree on 1 and 3 (I live in Spain and I wouldn't call it a devout country, far from it).
    And this nothing personal of course :)

    Your from Barcelona. I'm sure in southern spain there much more religious. And everyone is nationalist. It just the matter of how nationalist your are.

    Full time Croatia 1 - 0 Austria.

    I think Austria deserved to win. Croatia was just lucky with the penalty kick.
