Yeah, I remember that Euro 2007 championship well. I still have loads of files on my computer with notes I made about players over about a decade - mostly youth tournaments. I had a dream of getting a job at a club as some kind of analyst or something - it never happened of course.I thought Emmanuel Frimpong was gonna be solid, not world beater but solid premier League player for the likes of Everton, villa or spurs (at that time).
Royston Drenthe was another. Was so disappointed when he went to Madrid off the back of that u21 championship. So much talent in that particular tournament if memory serves.
Anyway, just looked up that tournament and yeah, Holland had the likes of Krul, Aisatti, Drenthe, Babel.
England had Hart, Cahill, Milner, Noble, Young.
Portugal: Moutinho, Nani, Veloso.
Italy: Chiellini, Montolivo,
Serbia: Ivanovic, Kolarov, Krasic...
