As for the bronze game? Who what where?

Who got silver in the 2008 Euros? Don't remember.

There's not even a bronze game in the UEFA Champion's league or in any of the national football cups that I know of.

Of course if I was a fan of some team that got a bronze, I'd be ecstatic and remember it for many many years.
And that's it. You get the recognition at the time. I remember Sweden were 3rd in 1994, I remember Turks were 3rd (soccer). But to be honest I don't exactly remember who has won gold in WC (ice hockey) 5 or 6 years ago. But did you remember Slovakia was 4th on olympics it or Swiss and Germany were 4th? Yeah, it was exceptional. It's big deal in those countries and they get recognition all around the world for a while.
