Group C Predictions
Spain will defeat Italy by a wide margin in their Group C Tournament. The internal divisions in Italy along with Mario Balotelli is expected to hurt Italy.
There are rumors of internal divisions in Spain but it is just simply rumors.
Spain 2 = 0 Italy
Republic of Ireland will struggle against Croatia. Croatia will eventually prevail
Republic Of Ireland 1= 2 Croatia
Group B Reflections
Netherlands VS Denmark
What was expected to be a victory for Netherlands was a stunning defeat by Denmark. It remains to be seen how the Netherlands can turn this around.
Germany VS Portugal
Mario Gomez deserves points for using his head to score an extraordinary goal in the right side of the net. It remains to be seen if Portugal under Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho can regain its strength.
Pepe should have received a red card for his use of force against one of the German players.
The predictions and comments are personal opinions based on what I saw in the matches. I saw them on TV at the Fritz and Franz Bierhaus in Coral Gables, Florida.
