#27 Frank De Boer, Wales, France and Portugal were terrible. Our EURO 2020 round of 16 review.

Remember to Like, Share, and Subscribe! It's the BiFactor, joined by regular guest Chelsea-fan Mark, AKA Triple M.  We discuss tactics and performances in the EURO2020 round of 16. Denmark tactically and/or emotionally have grown through adversity Italy made to work, but have not been tested sternly enough. Plus, missing Mario Balotelli  Czech Republic dutifully send the Dutch home. Jose was right bout Frank De Boer. Roberto Martinez and "white privilege" (very tongue-in). Belgium would be way better than this with a better Manager.  Portugal need to look beyond Cristiano. Pedri is world class and Spain is a dark horse in this competition Pogba is still an enigma, and Matuidi is missed. Maybe Giroud should have played instead of Benzema. England: boring and effective is a winning formula, but Foden or Sancho should be playing on the RW Germany were unserious. Ukraine "have always been offensive", and are touted to be the real dark horse.  Follow us at our other platforms for more: https://linktr.ee/trifactorpod
