I would think so as the England match started at 9pm. I am not sure how to find out but maybe the Vezprem tourist information office would know. Have fun!

Don't want to speak for Cathy but in case the match is tonight.... I think if you check the earlier pages of this thread, she said England's 10pm match was shown so I think they must be showing all of them - even better when it's also the beer festival

Hope you had a nice time on Thursday?
Shame the changes hadn't been made in the earlier matches as it might then be a different story!

What about Suarez, can't believe the hatred being shown by the Uruguayan camp to the English

The English have always been seen as the baddies in the world .... despite being a very small country!

Lucky Holland beat Mexico!
Well done to Costa Rica for beating Greece. It's amazing how far Costa Rica have got because there population is only 5 million!

There's been some interesting results so far... I was really rooting for the Algerian under dogs purely because their goalie was amazing!

With neither France nor Germany creating anything special in their last matches it's difficult to say which way their match will go

Finally back from sunny France and have a mountian of footage to process but the World Cup is really getting to the nitty gritty now!

As typically happens once you leave the group phase the games become more tight and tense as it is the point of no return, I love it, the games have been fascinating to watch if not the most fluid and free flowing!

France have surprised me with their physical presence so far but Germany created so many chances during the game with Algeria and should have done much better, still a tough game to call!

Was surprised how poorly Belgium played against USA. Was disappointed Switzerland did not beat Argentina who I thought were absolute rubbish with all their star players.

I was beginning to think you had fallen overboard! Hope the filming was a success.

Hi Atox

Did you manage to get over to Veszprem. We went in last night for a meal and watched a bit of the Germany France game. It is so nice to sit out in the sun watching the football but lacks a bit of the atmosphere you get back in the UK. Still if Hungary were playing it might be a different matter. The way Orban seems to be committed to Football maybe they will have better luck in the future.

Hi Cathy,

I managed to watch a game in Veszprem. It sure beats just watching on the telly at home. I saw Belgium - Argentina in Siofok yesterday and that was amazing, great atmosphere there. Too bad we lost

So far so good for my predictions 2 from 4 of the semi finalists and if Belgium had of been more decisive up front my dark horses could have replaced Argentina.

Brazil are still looking poor but home momentum is a valuable thing in football and still could squeeze through, but the Dutch, what can you say substituting your goal keeper 30 seconds before a shoot out and he goes the right way 5 times and saves 2
