    Will be a massive game, but could end up really cagey if both sides don't want to take risks.

    I think I'm right in saying Germany have never beaten Italy in a major tournament.

    Indeed, 8 matches, 4 draws, 4 Italy wins (2 on penalties)

    I think it'll be a great game. Spain was just as big a game for Italy and they weren't scared at all. Germany don't really have the setup to play defensively either.

    I'm expecting terrible things from Wales-Belgium and Portugal-Poland though.

    I can't believe how bad Poland were against the Swiss. I've always thought they were a good side but the aren't very good this Euros. Lewandowski is struggling to impact matches but I feel he is trying to adapt from club level playing in front of 10 superstars where all he has to worry about is his own movement, to Poland playing on the counter.

    Might kill the game a bit too, because two 3-5-2s facing off is notoriously dire to watch.

    Been a good watch so far. Germany have been quite poor in the final third though, they're definitely missing an attacking threat like Draxler.

    Höwedes has been a waste of a jersey this half. Ludicrous selection.
