It’s a pity I’m not a betting man or I could have got odds of 11/1 on Greece beating France 1-0 last night. I don’t think they’d even won a match in a major competition before and here they are in the semi-finals. Perhaps God (or gods — work out which one you are) is Greek.
France losing has been put down to not enough of their fans turning, but why should they if their team can’t be bothered to turn up either. As a French commentator observed, “At least the English players tried.” I think my money’s on the Czechs for Champions.
