well its very simple Puna, Spain needs to win the last two. I was talking with an Asturian today living in Germany and we discussed this as her German husband could not explain well.

the only glitch is what is going to do Holland in their last game vs Chile. if they already qualify would they let Chile win to keep Spain out.???

time will tell.

Thanks, Pedmar. I can yell louder than I can figure odds. smile smile
So if Spain beats Chile on the 18th of June it all comes down to what happens w/ Holland.

Could the Netherlands let Chile win without anyone realizing what was happening? Isn't that illegal or only when there is betting involved?

well no need for strategies. Spain is out badly, there was really never a team there.

Thanks for the memories of Two European championships and one World Cup, enough.

Now its time for the new generation to take over starting in the next European Championship in 2016.

Cheers

ps so now what is your team, I have two ::) France and USA still in the running!

USA, although I think they have won their only game. I will also root for England, Argentina, Australia and Mexico.

yes but its normal of course. We have Portugal, Germany ,and they have neymar and messi on the Real Madrid thing.

ON Spain you always go after the one who is No 1 to its normal too. And we will be back. Euro 2016 is next.

as far as todays' game Ecuador 2 Honduras 1,and Ghana vs Germany are now tied at 2X2. This helps the USA. Which plays tomorrow night vs Portugal.

France is awesome ::) 5X2 vs Switzerland::: already in the 8th finals.

Swiss team was disheartened when their player Von Bergen had his orbital bone fractured by Giroud, What a barbaric challenge, hopefully won't lose vision in that eye. I'm sure French fans are downplaying this reckless challenge as accidental. Refs are allowing too much. Wouldn't have bothered me if Giroud had been sent off. European teams are not faring as well as expected. France and Germany gonna go down like Spain and England and probably Italy too. Belgium could be the best of Europe. I only support 1 team USA . Spain supporters seem to be jumping off that bandwagon and supporting 3 or 4 or 5 teams.

refs allowed too much on both sides , that is for FIFA to handle. I just focus on the game. They were awesome!!! And Benzema top scorer at the WC! if the same ref allowed the last goal he would be undisputed leading goal scorer too, but it was disallowed, that is football/soccer.

And I don't support other teams jumping on the band wagon as you said. I am a Citizen of passport carrying Citizen of Spain, France, and the USA lol!

Cheers
