Croatia won convincingly, however Manzukic didn't look all that great and Perisic lacked some finishing touches. However that midfield played well. Shoutout to the gentlemen that crashed the goal celebration.
Turkey always seem to start tournaments slow and have a history of doing well with their backs against the wall. Questionable substitute taking out Turan.
Poland, looked threating many times but left much to be desired. They came out great in the first 10 minutes and then lost that flair. I liked Milik's game a lot however Lewandoski had 0 shots. Kapustka looked good, I expect this team to grow and have some confidence against the Germans.
Northern Ireland, I liked nothing from them. I'm hoping for some positive football from them in their next game against Ukraine because if they don't attack Ukraine will wear them down.
Ukraine, they will give N.I. some fits next game. But they had their chances against Germany. I wanted more of their final 15 minutes in the 1st half. It was a terrible 2nd half from them.
Germany, they seemed extremely hesitant and weren't deliberate with the ball. It seemed like they were in their heads because whenever they had the ball in the final 3rd they didn't know where they wanted to go with their final ball. I'm looking for them to be more forceful next game.
I know these games haven't been the most pretty, but I've enjoyed every minute. I'm always more invested in a tournament when Romania is a part of the party. But I expect these games to get better.
