'Netherlands subjected to racist chants whilst training'
UEFA already getting their excuses in, claiming it was Polish fans protesting over Krakow not getting any Euro 2012 matches.
The cover up is just as bad as the actual racism.
There may be trouble ahead......
The funny thing is, I had to hear it on the BBC first.
Only because Mark van Bommel complained, has it become an issue (of sorts..)
The Dutch PR man, Kees Jansma, simply denied it happened.
Said it was a protest because of the second Polish city not getting any games.
It's got very little cover over here.
Winners: Germany ahead of Spain
Topscorer: No idea (Benzema, Torres, Pogrebnjak and Van Persie seem like decent shouts, but it could even be somebody else..)
Player: Mesut Özil, Ibrahim Afellay has a point to prove too.
Outsiders: France or Russia (or even Croatia)
I hope I'm wrong about the winners, and thats what my gut feeling is telling me now. My country and France to make the semi's as well.
I got a lot right in the last World Cup (second in our village pool, won 400 euros), it was tougher this time.
I have made no significantly shocking predictions, England making making it through (which is highly debateable) and Portugal not.
For tonight, Poland and Russia to win, normally. It's not the most exciting group though.
