We’re down to just four teams at Euro 2012: Spain, Germany, Portugal and Italy. French Football Weekly's Andrew Gibney joins Neil Sherwin and Bleacher Report's Willie Gannon to review the quarterfinals, as well as preview the upcoming semifinals.

Andrew Gibney joins regulars Neil and Willie to reflect on the the quarterfinals of the European Championships, as England exited on penalties yet again, Germany and Spain strolled through against Greece and France, respectively, and Portugal and Italy kept on impressing.

The lads were in fine form and no quarter was given as they dissected and disemboweled England after a dreadful performance against Italy, ending what can only be described as a disappointing Euro 2012 for the Three Lions.

Andrew’s knowledge of the French national team comes in very handy when analysing their defeat to Spain, a result which was never really in doubt due to their lacklustre and lame performance.

There’s also some reflection on the wins for Germany over Greece and Portugal over the Czech Republic, as well as some predictions for how the two semifinals will pan out later this week.
