1. Well , Switzerland knocked my country out of Euro 2020 and they turned to be the dark horse of the tournament alongside Denmark :)
We didn't perform well throughout the 3 games anyway.

2. I have bought AirPods for my phone and I thought it would be more practical than the wired earphones whereas it was worthless and it is always out of charge and the voices of the callers are so weak so I regret buying it despite it was expensive.
I bought a SAMSUNG washing machine a few years ago and it was worth every penny and very reliable.

Belgium **** ******* at Portugal’s expense.
Wales got ******* *** by Denmark.

1. Belgium knocked Japan out at round 16 in 2016 Russia world cup. Japan have never reached to the quater final. At that time, we were about there but couldn't make it finally.

2. A game thicket for Tokyo Olympics might not be worth the money. I won't be able to go to the stadium because of the pandemic.
A pair of Levi's 501 was worth buying. I wear them almost everyday.
