    Do you mean the half-Spanish van der Vaart?

    I am with you on that. But for me it is not necessarily the players (well, I dislike some), but rather the hype and "trumpet-blowing" that surrounds the England team. Everytime they go into a tournament their media and fans arrogantly proclaim themselves as the favourites even when it is unjustified, and it is much to my pleasure when they do bow out.

    Also, have you ever had the displeasure of hearing those utterly biased English commentators during an England match? "Come on England!" "That was not a foul!" (ignoring the rulebook), or "Next time we'll beat them."

    Yes, very true. It really adds up.

    As for foreigners representing Germany, I also forgot to mention Oliver Neuville, who I believe is French-Swiss.

    Yes, and his mother tongue is Italian.
    "slavic" languages are absolutely arteficial (Read "slawenlegende"). The "glagolica", invented by a bunch of monks, is nothing but an ancient esperanto, creating new words, definitions and alphabet out of regional slangs.

    The craddle of European Civilization comes from the North. All blond people originate from the north. So if you see a blond-blue eyed Slovene, Russian, Czech, Polak ect., you can be 100% sure that his ancient ancestors originated from "Germanics" (Germanic = Nordic).
    "slovenja" was the settelment of the Langobards = Germanics/Teutons. "Poland" of the Goths and East-Vandals ect. ect. What do "slavs" tell us about their origin?
    Some silly story that they originate from some swamps in the east and popped out of no where into history.

    So you see my dear "Gorostan" [=Triglav], you are in reality a "Germanic" indoctrinated with panslav propaganda and historic fantasy stories. ~Dr. Brandt, former TNP and Skadi member

    Penalties are an unjust way of finishing a match, but one team has to win. Sweden did a good job and the Neterthlands did not play a convincing match.

    It was so lovely to see the cheering bright coloured and beautiful Dutch Phalian women audience. I just say wow, some are amazingly Nordid, even at par with Swedes!

    I hope they will do well against Portugal. Denmark-Czech tomorrow.
    I hold the Czechs as favourites.

    I hope to see Netherlands-Denmark in the finals.

    I think penalties are a good way to finish a match. Penalties are certainly not a lottery.

    Taking a penalty is a football quality, you must cope with the pressure of the whole world watching at you and you must have the ability to place the ball behind the goalkeeper. For goalkeepers : Stopping a penalty is a quality too.

    I agree that the 120 minutes was an even match. The Dutch and Swedish both had opportunities to score.

    However when it came to penalties we were just better than the Swedish, so our victory was deserved.

    Im glad France are out. I think its stupid that in a national team of a European country whites are a minority. Most of the players in the France team are blacks and mulatoes. Thats not representative for France as a whole. I dont think native white French people can identify with their team anymore.

    Holland also has some non-white players, but there is no problem with a couple of non-whites as long as the majority of the team is white.

    The majority of the Holland team is still white : 16 of the 23 players in the Euro squad are white, and 15 of those 16 are native Dutch men.
