This is where the real competition is. It seems to me that the most boring teams have made it to the last eight.
England have been slagged off for being boring. But could any game ever played in the history of football be more boring than the Switzerland - Ukraine game? It was so bad, the BBC highlights skipped the match and went straight to the penalty shootout. During the game, one of the commentators relayed a story of a Swiss fan he saw outside the ground offering 'any amount' for 2 tickets. He jokingly continued 'I wish I'd have given him our tickets'.
France have also been terrible, especially now they have knocked out Spain who at least wanted to play attacking football.
Italy have played the whole tournament on the counter attack keeping all 11 players behind the ball (as is their tradition), while Portugal have only entertained us with their histrionics.
Brazil have been immensely disappointing and Argentina have only really impressed against a complicit Serbia. Mexico were much the more attacking team against Argentina.
In fact the most entertaining team left are *cough* ahem, Germany.
In boring order I would place the teams as follows (starting with the most boring);
