Dreadful penalties from Switzerland but Spain don’t look that great. I’d fancy the winner of the Belgium Italy game to win the semi final.

 

They haven't looked great at any point, even the game they won 5-0 was more notable for their opponents throwing in the towel.  And yet they keep going and are somehow in the semi finals despite all their forwards being completely unable to hit a cow's arse with a banjo. It's bizarre.

Whoever made that advert they just showed with a load of actors fake-laughing should stand trial at the Hague.

:lol: Yeah, that was horrendous and makes me hate McDonald's even more.

That’s the worst quality penalties I’ve ever seen in a shoot out. 

 

It reminds me of when Argentina, the world champs at the time in Italia 90, won the penalty shootout against Yugoslavia 3-2, by missing penalties they should really have scored (Maradona himself missed one like a total mug).  I'd say that game was as bad as this one.

 

Just put into Google  "argentina v yugoslavia in 1990" and click the "More about this game" link and Google will tell you.

Strangely the Swiss seemed to have no confidence in their kicks, after that first miss and the keeper’s dancing their belief drained from them. Could see it in the face of every penalty taker, none looked like they believed they would bury their pen.

You obviously didn't see Switzerland against Ukraine in 2006...

Spain creeped through, they need to shape up if they want to get to the final. If it's Italy that's their bogey team so that could be interesting. Unlucky Swiss but god Shaq aside they are a very boring team.

Not the worst penalty shootout Switzerland have been involved in. Anyone else remember their game against the Ukraine at WC 2006. Goalless after extra time Switzerland missed all of their penalties in the shootout and is regarded as one of the most boring WC games ever.

Spain are so incredibly dull. Time slows down watching their boring brand of football. No pace, poor forwards, insipid wingers and no sense of urgency at any point. 

 

Hope they get absolutely pumped in the semi-final. 

I fear that hope might be misplaced.

Glad that match is over, switched over to the BBC as soon as I could to avoid Souness.

 

Sad to see Switzerland out.

 

Cmon Italy, if only so the locals here in Bedford behave themselves.
