Unlike the cricket world, in which Australia almost always trumps the Brits, the world of football is rarely predictable. Who, for instance, would've picked Greece to win Euro 2004, or England to fail to qualify for Euro 2008?

Thankfully we have a secret weapon in our tournament predictions: UEFA Euro 2008's simulation mode on the Xbox 360. Now that the group stages have been tossed by the wayside, along with the undeserving teams, we can get down to finals business.

Turkey, Croatia, Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Spain, and Russia now remain after Germany's 3-2 defeat of Portugal last night at Basel. Despite goals from Gomes and Postiga, it wasn't enough to stop Schweinsteiger, Klose, and Ballack from reaching the back of the net, taking Germany through to the semis.

You can read the GameSpot UK Euro 2008 quarterfinalist predictions on the Sports Beat blog. We'll also be running separate predictions for the semifinals and finals, based on the real-life winners of those stages, so stay tuned to see who'll win the virtual UEFA European Football Championship, and just how accurate UEFA Euro 2008's AI is compared to the real thing.
