Down to just one last game and then the fun will be all over. Some good stuff to last us ’til Sunday:

Reuters has a great blog post on the Flop XI of the tournament.

“Star” of the side would be Luca Toni, “someone for whom the term ‘lump’ could have been invented.

“Slow, immobile, clumsy and, when finally presented with some chances to show his ability in the air — poor in the air.”

Meantime the Guardian has a look at Germany’s track-record in big cup finals – it is astounding to see how often they’re there at the end.

I also enjoyed the Guardian’s “Joy of Six” item highlighting a half-dozen memorable international tournaments of the past.

And finally, UEFA ranks the Top 10 goals of the tournament on the official Euro 2008 site.
