Re: !!!!!!! PORTUGAL !!!!!!!
Well, it's nothing against France, but the Portuguese are wishing a LOT to play against our Brazilian brothers because of our very, very close history and emotional reasons.

Also the Bazillians in Portugal were supporting a lot Portugal so we are also supporting them. They are wishing for that match too.

Still, I wish good luck to France as we have a lot of Portuguese in France and I'm sure they would be happy if France would won too.

In fact the Portuguese are winners all the way by now. We've passed to the semi-finals, and we will play against one of two countries that mean much to the Portuguese anyway.

But this was a very tough game, especially because we did not have two of our best players and England was terrifing in their counter-strikes... We suffered a LOT...

Again good luck and let's have a great game from Brazil and France.

Re: !!!!!!! PORTUGAL !!!!!!!

It was such a hard fought game - exciting in its own way - and a Manchester United player won it!!!

Such a good English team - what is there to be disapointed about - viva internationalism!!!!

Hi Kev!

To be fair, in these kind of games anyone would be legitimate winners. It was a super-tactical game, and even if England played very defensive the clearest opportunities for goal were yours, though we were missing some good players that could scramble completely England like the steady Costinha or Deco “the magician”.

For the Portuguese it was really a very stressful and emotive game.

But you don’t have fabulous Ricardo… or Cristiano Ronaldo (a hero considering the nasty hurt he had to recover from in just a week) :-))))

And I agree completely and in all terms: viva internationalism!!!!

People are completely hysterical around here as you can imagine! The government could raise the taxes and fuel by 3000% this moment that no one would care…

Yes, two more games to bring justice to Eusébio! Together with Pelé and Maradona the best of all times.

I wish I had planned to visit Portugal in the summer instead of November. In spirit I am there.

Mais dois jogos........

For those who think that men don't cry ... well they should look at them watching the football games .... I cried like a baby (happy tears) ... lols

Daria: You have to keep in mind that Deco was'nt playing this game ... if he was playing it, Portugal would have scored many goals
Beckham is way too overrated ... and Roonie deserved the red card by all means !!!
