Spain out... Italy out... England out... Germany out...

Could be a Portugual/Czech Republic final, could be a Netherlands/Greece final... who knows? It's wide open. Whatever happens, it should make for good matches and good games to watch. Hopefully the final isnt decided on penalty kicks, because that's pretty random. I think it was 94 when Baggio put his shot over the crossbar and not even close to the net against Brasil, and this time around it was Beckham who did the same. Of course, there's also the curse of England in shootouts, or the curse of England in matches against host nations to fall back on.

Portugual/Greece would be a good final to watch... of course all the games in our time zone are in the afternoon, so I could only “watch” from the ESPN Gamecast. I wonder what the odds are on A) a POR/GRE final and B) a GRE win?
