    England won 3-0.

    Rooney scored another goal at 75 min. and Stephen Gerrard added the third at 81 minutes.

    Bernt Haas picked up 2 yellow cards for Switzerland so in 2 games they've had 2 players get red cards. (Johann Vogel was the other)

    They didn't show the game live here because of the golf

    It's on at 3pm so I'll watch it then.
    I hear the scoreline was a bit flattering, but frankly don't care we needed a win.

    France Croatia 2-2.

    Croatians played extremely well and France should be happy to get a tie as they were losing 2-1 in the second half.

    I have always like Croatia. One of my favourite underdog teams. I would be very happy to see them win it all, although I don't see it happening.

    Group B is still an open contest, Clipse. So don't give up hope.

    GROUP B
    FRANCE 4
    ENGLAND 3
    CROATIA 2
    SWISS 1





    My underdog team pick would be the Czechs.

    Oh right, you're Swiss. And you're supporting England?

    blue, I presume you don't have cable (SCV) since I've been watching all the matches LIVE. Don't worry, channel 5 will show the Semis or Finals, i think.

    The Swiss have never gone far in these tournaments. England has Beckam and Owen...my main reasons for support . Yeah I don't have cable, but yes I think I saw Channel 5 advertise that they will show the semi's and Final.

    ue - you've been watching all the matches? you've been staying up so late (early), I have no endurance

    Owen hasn't been playing well, but he is always very nice to look at

    Apparently Rooney's 2nd goal agaisnt the Swiss might be taken away and ruled as an own goal, which it clearly was by the goalie, but itwould be a shame for Rooney.

    From ESPNSoccernet

    LISBON, June 18 (Reuters) - One of the two goals credited to 18-year-old England striker Wayne Rooney against Switzerland at Euro 2004 may be taken away and ruled an own goal.
    UEFA communications director William Gaillard told a news conference that Euro 2004's technical committee would study video replays of Rooney's second goal to determine whether or not it should count as an own goal by Swiss keeper Joerg Stiel.


    Rooney's strike in the 75th minute of Thursday's match in Coimbra struck a post and rebounded into the net off the back of the diving Stiel's head.

    The striker, who became the youngest scorer in European Championship finals history with his first goal in the 23rd minute, claimed the second goal after the game.

    'I hit it as hard as I could and luckily enough, it went in,' he said. 'I am going to claim it.'

    Gaillard said the technical committee would not be studying replays of France's first goal against Croatia on Thursday which was given as an own goal by Croatian defender Igor Tudor.

    Many observers felt the goal should have been credited to Zinedine Zidane whose free kick took a slight deflection off Tudor.

    Zidane scored twice in France's opening game against England and would be leading the scorers' list on his own with three goals. He currently shares the lead on two with Rooney and Henrik Larsson of Sweden.
