Can't watch the Spanish game now because I have to play a soccer match  :'(

Hopefully we win and Theis plays a good game.
These Spanish guys just keep getting better in football. 😀

LOL TP buddy.

I've missed two great games  :'(   At least, Messi made it worthwhile.

Greece vs Russia at 18.45, and then Italy-Serbia.

Call me a pessimist, but I'm convinced Gr will get eliminated tonight.

The reverse tactic, I get it, I was a national team fan - once upon a time ;D

There is an element of reverse psychology in this  ;D

But also Russia has been better in this tournament and have a leader in Shved. Greece lacks leadership and scoring (not that our D is particularly good)- having said this, I won't complain if we make it to the Final 4 8)

On the other side Greece has the roster to neutralize Russia's weapons.
The game plan should be similar to the previous game. The center is a big immovable rock and the pg (for different reasons this time) should be pressed the whole time.

I won't be surprised if Russia wins by 20p  but i like our chances.

Yeah great game by Greece so far ... Calathes looks like Magic. 5 assists in the first quarter!

Most important thing so far is that Sved is nowhere to be found.

Btw fun fact ... The coach of Russia Bazdarevic is Greek (on paper) ... During his playing carrier he remembered he had a great grandparent from Greece This way he got an EU passport....
