Level of the game of the teams participating in this tournament is, according to Breitner lower, than it was expected.
“Still it is a bad tournament. As bad as the European Championship 2004. And it happens because the UEFA follows FIFA: first of all thinks of how to earn money. There are too many matches, the tournament lasts too long. Portuguese national team that entered the semi-finals without victories during the normal time testifies about the level of the European Championship. I am convinced that in the future this format will end” — Breitner told in his interview to ServusTV.
