About as funny as seeing Rangers in the 3rd division.
Oh wait no, thats quite hillarious actually. Not to mention equally as likely.

Langeveldt: I of course blame their parents.. and unchecked immigration!
GingerFurball: He's Austrian, they tend to produce the odd ****ed up individual
Burgey: Be careful dealing with neighbours whose cars don't have wheels but whose houses do.
Uppercut: Maybe I just need better strippers
GingerFurball Italy haven't played their quarter final match yet !
Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?
With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

Can a mod edit the title please?
Thanks to GIMH for pointing out the error and Ashley Young for being crap.
Dire. I was actually going to watch the semi if England made it; that would've been novel.

Why didn't you just watch the quarter?
Worst fake/real Englishman I've ever seen.
I'm so convinced that this game is going to be good, is going to make up for yesterday. (well I actually only just watched the last game, should have fast forward to extra time)
Yer Eyeties have a worryingly good record versus Jerry in tournaments.
Logic says the Germans, but...
Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion
- As featured in The Independent.
"as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

Most of the previous encounters have been draws haven't they? iirc the only exceptions are Italy's wins in the famous 4-3 WC semi-final in 1970 and the 2-0 semi in the 2006 WC. Actually, the latter is one of my favourite matches in the knock out stages of recent tournaments ('recent' meaning since 1986). Great 1st goal, superbly set up by Pirlo. Oh yes, and the 1982 WC final. I don't think Germany have ever beaten Italy in a tournament proper, but I don't see that bothering the current breed.
Funny times we live in. For years - since 1970, actually - every self-respecting English fan has wanted Germany to lose to whoever they were facing, even the thoroughly obnoxious Argentina side of 1990. Now we're all so bored with the alternatives that we're all big fans of the hun. Including me, which I never thought I'd say. Once they start winning tournaments they'll probably revert to arrogant and boringly efficient, but for the moment I'd be happy to see them win their next two games.
But this is one of the great European fixtures. Looking forward to it immensely.
