Euro 2008

Well the Euro 2008 has come to Switzerland and Austria, and this weekend held the opening matches.

We headed down to the big screen they had set up next to the lake in Vevey to watch the Switzerland vs. Czech Republic match. There was plenty of support from the locals, with everyone turned out in red and white to match the flag colours. It was a really nice night to be outside in any case, and we enjoyed being part of the action.

Unfortunately Switzerland lost their opening match, as did Austria the following night. The Swiss at least did not seem too disheartened by the loss - I don't think they come into the competition with great expectations - but it would be nice to see them win a game or two.
