    Yeah it wasn't great but I think for everyone but England it was redeemed by Iceland.

    Germany, Italy and Belgium were all great.

    I thought the first half was probably a cracker from a neutral POV and then the end result absolutely, but across eight games I don't think much else will linger in the memory

    Isn't this a bit like saying "if we discount the memorable bits it won't be memorable" though?

    Do you remember that time there was that incident with the elephant and the pineapple?

    Been loads of fun. But somehow feel like the group stages were better than the knockout matches so far. Expecting Germany vs. Italy to change that.

    I think you have misunderstood me (which makes sense given your lack of intelligence). I'm saying outside England V Iceland not an awful lot will stick in my mind. There were some excellent performances, as Furball said, but these didn't really make for great games.

    That being said I never got to see Spain-Italy but it sounded a corker on the radio

    Thought tonight's game was pretty great in all honesty. 2 very good, evenly matched sides that did a lot to negate and cancel each other out without being deliberately defensive. Just a high quality match all over the park.

    It generally comes down to the semis and final. However good the earlier games have been, tournaments aren't regarded as memorable if the final three matches are boring.

    Yeah this is kind of true, although I usually enjoy the group stages the most. Bit of a gap between what you actually enjoyed at the time and how good you remember it being.

    Very rarely are semifinals and finals exciting matches... I guess Germany-Brazil 7-1 was enjoyable in a certain way. But teams that are good enough to get to that stage are going to be cagey and hard to score against.
