      It's Division Two, not the Championship...

          France are going to have to use their special kit for this I presume, unless red v blue will be allowed:

            It was for Iceland v Austria.

              France had to change against Switzerland because the socks clashed.

                Then UEFA made them wear a different away shirt from their normal one because, wait for it, the shoulders clashed with the Swiss jerseys. UEFA are nuts.

                Mark Clattenburg gets the final. I had an awful feeling they were going to give it to Cuneyt Cakir.

                  I thought the reason was because the two sleeves were different colours, and that is banned in the kit regulations unless the body of the shirt is also of those same two colours.

                    Seriously? Oh fuck are we going to get more of his lizard bonding with Pepe?

                      And I'm inclined to agree with GO. Whatever the tournament brackets say France are the home team and it is entirely logical and right to state it as France v Portugal.

                        My WSC wall chart says Portugal v France. It doesn't get more official than that.

                          It's a weird one, because although the socks don't clash with each other, the rest of Portugal's kit is red, and this may be looked askance at by UEFA's extreme pedantry committee. My tip- France in white.

                              I think it might fall foul of the "predominantly dark-coloured kit v predominantly light-coloured kit" thing too, though I realise that is more of a FIFA/World Cup hang-up.

                              There was some talk before the semi that Portugal considered their pistachio/mint affair to be lucky, maybe they will choose to wear that?

                                No, it fills out automatically after each game. You didn't all get the digital version with the remote plug-in? Must have been for contributors only.

                                  I've been hugely impressed by Portugal's defence at this tournament. Cedric, Pepe and Fonte have been excellent throughout.I wouldn't be at all surprised if they sneaked this one by a single goal.

                                    Someone said on the semi-final thread that they felt sorry for the Portugal fans. I'm also sympathetic to them. I wish there was some way that they could win but not the team. I reckon Portugal's fans are due something to cheer, they must surely be the most successful team never to have won anything.
                                    I still want France to win, but I won't begrudge the Portugal fans a long overdue moment of glory either.

                                      I don't really care who wins.

                                      The Wales welcome home party yesterday felt like the end of the tournament for me.

                                      I've even sent off for the last few Panini stickers to complete the album.

                                      I don't know if I'll even bother to watch it.

                                        Any time Cedric has made an impression on me it has been for absolutely moronic defending. He seems like the very worst example of a winger pushed in to the full back role with no aptitude for it and a total flake.

                                          Cakir was sent home after the Last 16.

                                          I was hoping Kassai would get the final.

                                            That was my opinion also Harry. I think he's had a very good tournament here though.

                                              I really think Portugal are going to do this.

                                                It's been a tournament of small shocks all along the way, so yes, I do too. Portugal to win 3-2, with an injury-time break where Ronaldo passes to Nani instead of shooting.

                                                  Ronaldo to win, please. Ronaldo to win ushering in an era of silent xenophobic rage, of self-loathing and internalised fury. Of bulging eyes and tear-stained Daily Mail pages. Of foamy, frothy, guilty masturbation as they whine and moan and scream in ecstasy at Ronaldo's chiselled, rock-hard abdominal muscles and sculpted pectorals while publicly denouncing him as a ponce, a poser, and a poof.
