Sweden pushes on....

After a controversial goal in extra-minutes, Spain scored the final goal of the match making the final score 2-1 Spain. Sweden was clearly the superior team when it came to playing skills although the Spanish definitely took the Oscar for most fake falls and injuries. Apparently Tracy was so confident in Sweden's exceptional skills that she wagered some money for a Swedish victory, alas, $50 dollars that used to be hers is now owned by a certain "Spaniard". Oh well, I guess we can't always be the best. The fight continues with a game against Russia in a couple of days.

It's true. I was feeling pretty confident, and it was a disappointing loss indeed! However, it is a good thing I didn't bet Euros, because my measly $50 American dollars will barely fill your car with a couple liters of petrol Spaniard! Enjoy your tapas for now, but it's not over 'till it's over!

Yeah, Spain got really lucky :-) An incorrect foul gave the spaniards an opportunity in the last minute which they used to score. Anyway, Sweden still has a godd opportunity to advance, even though I think Russia will prove a really tough opponent.

I don't think Sweden would stand much of a chance against Holland (who are playing like champions) in a quarterfinal, but it would be a great game (last time, in the last euro championship Holland only just barely beat Sweden on penalties in the quarter final). If there's any time I could stand Sweden losing to its definitely Holland! :-) Anyway, cheer for Sweden tonight!
