What does everyone think the result will be?

Could Germany gain revenge on WC 98's quater-final defeat?

The way Germany showed little creativity and quality against Holland last month, should suggest otherwise. Should Germany get a poor result, they'll probably have less and less believers who think Germany will take glory at Euro 2000.

Actually, in Germany, nobody (who knows a little about football) believes that Erich Ribbeck's side could defend the European title in June and July! When playing like the German team did against the Netherlands, the biggest success possible would be to advance to the next stage (the teams to beat: England, Portugal and Romania).

Even though the papaers were critical, germany performed quite well against Croatia in attrotious conditions. Germany dominated the first half, were rewarded with a goal, and the players worked hard, esecially Kirsten and Bierhoff, although Bierhoff could not score with his one and only chance.
Germany stay in contention for Euro 2000, Romania looked less impressive against Greece, but Portugal did well against Denmark, 2 teams first named are in Germany's Euro 2000 group.
