Your Complete Guide to Euro 2008: Villa Again!

David Villa scored his fourth goal in Euro 2008 as Spain beat Sweden 2-1 in Group D last night. His winner came deep into injury time.
What is it with this tournament and late late goals? (3 goals have been scored in the last fifteen minutes of games AND 7 goals have been scored in the injury time period).
Greece, the current European Champions, bowed out of the competition after being beaten by Russia 1-0.
So now we have four countries already qualified for the quarter-finals: Croatia, Holland, Portugal and Spain.
Today sees the start of the final group games (and all games will kick-off at the same time - 20:45pm local time)
Group A
Czech Republic v Turkey
Switzerland v Portugal
For the first time in Euro history, there is a possibility of a penalty-shoot out between the Czech Republic and Turkey to decide who joins Portugal in the quarter-finals.
Hang on to your hats we could be in for a roller coaster ride later on today.
