    Default Euro 2004 Road To Portugal

    Since the voting didn't work out too well, I've decided on who I am going to be, and it's Czech Republic.

    For the start of the tourny, I am in Group 1 with Turkey, Wales, Greece and Andora. Luckily with none of the big dogs.

    Here's where everyone can get information on them. http://www.euro2004.com/tournament/t...837/index.html

    I'll get the starting lineup and upcoming games up later and other information once games get under way, stay tuned.

    Watch out for Turkey though, they're a good team.

    Damn I don't feel good about the Czech. I just played Belgium in a friendly and I scored a goal, then they came right back and scored one. Then I was coming up the side of the field and crossed it over and Pavel Nedved headed it in, making it a 2-1 game. Then they came back and started weaving and embarrasing my defense with pin point passes and just rocketed a shot past my goalie, who is just horrible. And this is Belgium!!!!

    I'm thinking of moving to a little bit better team. Just the thought of me facing France, Italy and Spain...I'd get murdered. No speed what-so-ever on defense. Pavel Nedved is the only hope for that team and can't do it all himself. Portgual doesn't sound too bad, neither does Germany.

    I kinda like Germany. Good squad there and I'd say the best GK too. What do you think about choosing Italy?

    Ye they're a great side and have made a few changes to their team, Italy always seem to make it through to the finals. I would seriously ponder choosing them.

    Yeah go with Germany, you can't go wrong when you have the best gk
    btw, is this game any good? How is it compared to FIFA 2004, and how are the controls compared to it too?

    Alright, Germany it is and that's FINAL.

    Well, this game has more features, it's what FIFA 2005 is basically going to be, diving headers, bysicle kicks, off the ball control, more moves, being able to dribble past players and goalies don't get killed on deep balls like in FIFA 2004.

    Nevermind. I suck so bad, I was playing with Germany against Belgium, and Kahn wasn't blocking a damn thing. I'm going with France first time around and If I can't do anything, then I'm garbage.

    France Roster:

    GK: U.Rame
    RB: L.Thurman
    CB: W.Gallas
    CB: M.Desailly
    LB: M.Silverstre
    CM: S.Wiltord
    CM: P.Vieira
    AM: R.Pires
    AM: Z.Zidane
    AM: T.Henry
    ST: D.Trezeguet

    Subs

    GK: F.Barthez
    RB: W.Sagnol
    CB: P.Mexes
    LB: B.Lizarazu
    DM: B.Pedretti
    CM: C.Makelele
    ST: L.Saha

    France is in group one with Slovenia, Israel, Cyprus and Malta.

    Next 5 games

    Match Type: Friendly...Home: Fra. Away: Rom. France Wins 1-0
    Match Type: Friendly...Home: Gre. Away: Fra.
    Match Type: Qualifier...Home: Cyp. Away: Fra.
    Match Type: Qualifier...Home: Fra. Away: Slo.
    Match Type: Qualifier...Home: Mlt. Away: Fra.

    Record: 1-0

    My outlook is, well...I have the best damn team. But seeing as I was using Germany and having Belgium tear me up, it's only right I select the best team. Another thing I'm happy about that Germany didn't have is, speed. This will open everything up, espically having Henry running down the sideline, and Zidane in the middle to free up for shots. I expect to do good against the lower teams, but once everything is set and the finals games get under way, I won't be facing scrub teams anymore. The following teams that I am afraid of are, England: TONS OF SPEED in Rooney and Owen, Beckham has one hell of a shot, great offense. Spain: I'd say 2nd best to us, they are decent all around, they just lack a little bit of speed but have good quality players. Italy: Defense, defense, defense. But what I should also be worried about is their speed and offense, something they have in Totti, Del Piero and Vieri. Germany: I'll have a very hard time scoring on them because of Kahn...always had a problem with him. If Germany scores one goal, I'm still in it, 2...call it game over.

    Romania

    Passing 84%
    Fouls 3
    Yellow Cards 1
    Red Cards 0
    Corners 1

    Bookings: Romania: D.Munteanu

    Romania played some very good defense. Keeper Lobant was stopping everything that was in his way, headers and lighting fast kicks. Finally scored after the ball was deflected off of Lobants hands and Lobant was trying to get up and David Trezeguet was there at the right time and kicked the ball in for a goal. I was happy with my D but a couple of times Romanias players broke out quick and got some good scoring chances. I hope Henry can get the ball more upfield, not sure what's wrong with him, he hasn't had that burst of speed in him.

    Formation is 4-2-3-1. And did you mean can you change formations in during the game? Yes you can. You can change kick takers, formation and substitutions. I'm playing on Professional, next is World Class, which I'd get killed in.

    If I could make one suggestion to your formation, make it four at the back and four in midfield with one attacking midfielder moved slightly up behind the front two just off the strikers. Ye Brazil are the biz in fifa.

    I dunno, I only played with Germany in the world cup once when I first got it, and I think Brazil didn't even make it past its group
    I mostly play in the european leagues in it.

    You can't discount the current world cup holders, they've won it five times!

    Alright. Was busy yesterday and didn't have a chance to get atleast one game in. I'm leaving later so I'll try to get a game done before I leave.

    I can't believe this. I was in a game earlier today that I wanted to get done against Greece, and scored with Henry. Then they came back with a goal 5 minutes later, then I scrored another one with Henry. So everything was fine and there was 10 minutes left in the game, oh why not..somebody opens my door, and I look and I didn't pause the game and they score a goal on a header. I was pissed. By the way sojourner, there's tons of formations.
