Denmark were brilliant. Tactically they got it spot on in negating the power houses of Wales. The class kept exuding as the quality of the squad and the stamina of the players ran Wales ragged.
Austria really gave Italy a run for their money today. They played an outstanding knock out game, their first in the history of the tournament. They breached the Italian defense twice only for the first to be ruled offside. The crack lines are evident in Italian defense and will be something Belgium / Portugal will look to exploit.
The knock out phase is a completely different ball game from the group stages as witnessed today. A cracking two weeks of football lies ahead as we unravel deep into instant elimination as we see the best rise up.
