Teams That Have Qualified For The Euro Championship Quarter Finals

Switzerland beat France on penalties to qualify for the quarter-finals of the euro whilst England defeated Germany by two goals to nil. Sweden lost to Ukraine to drop out from the euro championship. Quarterfinal games include Switzerland versus Spain, Belgium versus Italy, the Czech Republic versus Denmark, Ukraine versus England

Switzerland versus Spain is a game that Spain is expected to win but I will not stick out my neck for a Spain win. Spain has improved and they seem to be varying their game a little bit based on the opponent and how the game is going but their play is still basically the same pattern. The win of Switzerland over France was a surprise to many people but it seems Switzerland has improved a little as the tournament progressed. They never gave up even after conceding three goals, they kept believing and kept pushing and they were finally rewarded. If they carry the same belief and determination to the game with Spain they will get something out of that game. Spain as I said is expected to win and the numbers also favor them but because of the predictability of Spain in terms of pattern and play I will stick out my neck for Switzerland to win or draw this game

Belgium versus Italy is incredibly a difficult game to call. The difference between these two teams in terms of numbers is very little. The only thing that separates these two in terms of numbers is the number of goals Italy has scored. Italy has scored more goals than Belgium within the period under consideration. Whilst many pundits and soccer fans have gone for an Italian win, I will stick out my neck for a Belgium win or draw. Belgium has got just a little bit more individual quality than the Italians. In games like this, it takes individual brilliance to settle the score

The Czech Republic versus Denmark is a game that Denmark should be winning. The Czech Republic is a very good side and they seem to do the little things better and perfectly. But the motivation that is driving the Danish might be too much for the Czech Republic to handle. Apart from that, the numbers also favor Denmark so I am expecting Denmark to win or draw this game

England versus Ukraine is a game the English must win.No disrespect to Ukraine but they have been too inconsistent in terms of play and performance. It's difficult to know which Ukraine will turn up. The Adrenalin of the English buoyed by their win over the Germans is very high. Even though they have started dreaming about the finals and the cup already, I still believe the English are a little bit still far from that for now but they are not that far from a win over Ukraine
