EUROS Quarter Finals: Oscar Winning Italians

Episode 133,  Jul 05, 01:08 PM

And then there were four!

The quarters are done and dusted and Switzerland came oh so close to killing another giant. Massive effort to hold the Spaniards to 1-1 all through ET, but a disastrous penalty shootout both ways decided the tie in Spains favour. Shaqiri and Xhaka can be happy about their tournament though, and both should be commanding a pretty hefty fee in the summer transfer window.

The Italians held their resolve and brushed aside Belgium's 'golden generation'. Does Roberto Martinez deserve to stay in the job before the world cup, or should the Belgians make some drastic changes leading up to next year's showpiece event? One thing's for sure, the other Roberto has figured out how to manage a game well, and how to get his players deliver award winning acting performances.

Denmark powered through as well, with Joakim Maehle showing us what a perfect cross looks like (Till it was Luke Shaw's time to shine). The 10 million Euro Atalanta man is also going to have a lot of suitors! 

And finally, England steamrolled through Ukraine, scoring four goals and yet again, conceding none. We saw a Luke Shaw masterclass, Slabhead got on the scoresheet as well, and Harry Kane took one long lookg at his doubters and told them to sod off. 

Plus, we debut a new segment which is an evolution of a slightly older segment, called "In Other News!" We're going to have some fun with this one.
