    Well, it was supposed to be played in 2020, but was postponed to 20201. It's played every 4 years, so the next one will still be in 2024 and not 2025

    I figured as much, but its still 2021 now so its a 2021 cup in reality that was meant to be in 2020, but wasnt. Well, probably money reasons lets be honest but that is indeed silly.

    I have only a very limited tolerance towards association football because of the rampant disgusting unsportsmanlike behavior. Falling down in supposed agony to fish for free kicks or penalties, and then jumping up all fresh once the ref gives his decision.

    I guess that illusion of little jabs hurting that much can only be maintained by people who do not follow other codes of football, martial arts, and the like. Association football should have a rule that if you cannot get off the ground, you need to be substituted for like ten minutes or something and be checked by healthcare professionals. I guarantee those disgraceful displays would diminish by 95 percent.

    Sounds a bit like you are talking about the american football. There's been some nasty injuries in football like

    I'm pretty sure he was referring to football, not American Football. I support his suggestion, although the main problem with football is not unsportsmanlike behaviour but rather corruption and too much money.

    I like football, I play it myself at very very low level, support the local club currently playing at a low level and watch basically all matches at the EC and WC if I have the time. I also follow an elaborate joke disguised as a football club called Tottenham Hotspur FC.

    As for the Euros, it's hard to say who has the best chance to win it. Most of the big teams have not been convincing so there aren't really any frontrunners for me. Italy has probably been the most convincing but the question is how they'll fare against tougher opposition. I feel like most of the bigger teams are about equal to eachother.

    btw Ronaldo not too old to still play? probably his last tournament, or not?
    Probably his last Euros, although the guy is insanely fit so who knows how long he will keep on going. The only way he's not making next year's World Cup is if he's injured or Portugal somehow don't qualify.

    Your spoiler link does not work. But yes, I am talking about American football among other codes such as Rugby football (both union and league, which are quite different sports) and Australian rules football (the oldest one in the bunch). There are injuries in all kinds of football, association football included, but there is only one code in which feigning injury is a viable tactic for gaining advantage for one's team.

    There is no honest juxtaposing of theatrics versus injuries. Eliminating theatrics in association football is not going to increase injuries in that sport. Likewise, introducing theatrics will not decrease the number of injuries in codes that do not have that despicable culture.

    Ah right stupid link, but it was a broken leg, like in half, and that was a "soccer" player. Sure best for all games to be fair, but im not very knowledgable in sports so not sure about all those rules.

    Corruption for sure, yeah.

    I just checked he is 36 now, so that would be something for him to play still at 40 but who knows.

    Zlatan is 39 and he would have been at this tournament if not for an injury, someone as obsessed as Ronaldo could probably keep going for 3 more years as well (next Euros are in 2024).

    France looks like the best team on paper, with Italy not having lost in over 30 games, England being the perpetual meme, Germany yes and no - this could go any way, which is excellent

    I see an Italy/France - Netherlands final. England is a meme and will get knocked out, though not by Germany. Germany is the weakest it's been since 2006. Ditto Spain. Portugal might make it though with some luck but who knows.
