    Angola not really doing too badly since the goal, I don't reckon they'll score though.

    Exactly what i'd have said. Can't see them not losing, but it's certainly not a walkover.

    Poor performance from Portugal, Angola never looked like scoring or even threatening the Portuguese goal. And other than Figo, Portugal were never much of an attacking threat.

    Figo and Ronaldo were alright in patches, but it certainly wasn't the best effort. The theme of this World Cup so far is definately that the gap between the big teams and the little ones is smaller than ever before. There have been a few games so far where one side has genuinely dominated play, but even in those games the results haven't shown it, with Sweden failing to score, Portugal only scoring once, and Germany letting in two goals.

    Ronaldo takes a free kick on the left. Hits a defender's head and balloons up in the air. When it comes down, the keeper tries to punch it away but misses and the commentator said summat like "just like Monty Panesar at deep square leg."

    It was when the Angolan Ricardo flapped at a ball that ballooned up into the air & missed it totally, the ball landing beside him.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    That's as may be, but Mexico have been utterly dreadful.

    Mind you, I've just started supporting them tonight - although that might have more to do with the fact that Angola have just brought on a Dirty Leeds player as a sub.

    If Holland's group is the 'Group of Death', this is truly the 'Group of Bore You To Death'.

    See what that tactical switch did?

    Angola achieve the result of the World Cup so far.
