Owlhouse wins the week. I take the lead on the Costanza.

I deserve some points for picking Rooney as a scorer in the England game.

Portugal 2
, Poland 1 (Ronaldo)
Belgium 3, Wales 1 (Bale)
Italy 2, Germany 2 (Eder) (Italy wins on PK)
France 4, Iceland 1 (Payet)

Poland 2-1 Portugal (Lewandowski - has to happen sometime)
Wales 1-2 Belgium (De Bruyne - kind of looks like Friday Night Lights-era Jesse Plemons, no?)
Germany 2-1 Italy (Muller time)
France 2-0 Iceland (Ollie G.)

I think I had Graziano Pelle to score as well.

Poland 0 Portugal 0. Penalties, and Poland win when Ronaldo skies one into Row Z.
The Welsh dream ends with a 1-0 loss. Lukaku has to come good at some stage, doesn't he?
Germany have never beaten Italy in a competitive international. Until now. 2-0 and Muller gets one.
France edge out Iceland in a nervy encounter. 1-0 with Griezmann to the rescue once again.

Poland 3, Portugal 2 (Nani)

Wales 0, Belgium 3 (Lukaku)

Poland 3-2 Portugal (a.e.t.), Blaszczykowski
Wales 0-2 Belgium, Hazard
Germany 1-1 Italy (Italy wins in shootout), Muller
France 2-1 Iceland, Payet

Man, I really want to pick Iceland, but I think France has the muster to finally knock them out, even if it's only on a last minute goal.

Act like you've been there before, classless.

Poland 1, Portugal 0 (Lewandoski)
Wales 1, Belgium 3 (Bale)
Germany 0, Italy 0, Italy wins in shootout (No one?)
France 2, Iceland 0 (Giroud)

Poland 2, Portugal 1 (Lewandowski) I wouldn't root for Ronaldo if he somehow convinced FIFA to let him play for the USMNT.

Wales 2, Belgium 1 (Bale) Man drives the defenders to join a monastery and become ale makers. ;)

Germany 3, Italy 1 (Muller) Italy missing de Rossi is too much

France 2, Iceland 1 (Griezmann) Iceland we hardly knew ya.

Classless is my middle name.

Even more so when I posted it twice.

Grum and Owlhouse's scores included their Rooney and Pelle goals -- I just overlooked giving them credit in the post.

Portugal 1, Poland 0 (Ronaldo)

Belgium 2, Wales 1 (Bale)

Germany 1, Italy 0 (Gomez)

France 3, Iceland 0 (Griezmann)

Yerfatma: You can pick a scorer even if predicting a 0-0 game.

rcade, you may want to rethink your German goal scorer.

posted by bender at 12:38 PM on June 30, 2016

Oh, in previous round I picked Gomez to score for Germany, who did.

posted by rumple at 01:02 PM on June 30, 2016

The Gomez scores have been added.

rcade, you may want to rethink your German goal scorer.

I was feeling bullish about Griezmann scoring for Germany, but whatever. Maybe France is more his thing.

I missed yesterday's game, DAMMIT!

Belgium 3, Wales 1 (Lukaku)
Germany 3, Italy 1 (Muller)
France 3, Iceland 1 (Griezmann)
