    Yugoslavia were involved in some great games at Euro 2000, coming back from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 with Slovenia, the game against Spain where Spain needed to win to go through and won 4-3 despite being 3-2 down in the 90th minute, and the annihilation at the hands of the Dutch.

    Right enough.

    Been a lot of talk about how 24 teams qualifying has made it too easy, but three former winners still managed to jib it.

    I wonder if anyone who isn't Welsh will be saying 2016 in 20 years time.

    A major tournament would have to do a lot to beat Euro 2000 but this version's been pretty good. Solid 7.5 so far.

    This is my favourite Euros by far at this stage. LT is just bitter and English.

    Not at all. I said it was the worst England squad ever when it was announced. I expected a shambles and got it. Apart from the opening day of the round of 16 matches I've enjoyed it.

    Oh okay, got the impression from your other post that you thought everyone found the whole thing boring except the Welsh.
