    Pretty ordinary game, but the right result, both as a football fan & (crucially) an embittered Englishman.

    Lots of teams indulge in a little gamesmanship, but really yer Portugese are a friggin' disgrace. Lovely to see the Salford Stepover King having a blub at the end too.

    Bit of a Euro 2000 deja vu this. France play Italy in the final after beating Portugal through a decidedly dodgy penalty. Can we expect another last minute goal in an inhumanely long amount of injury time?

    I don't think it was that dodgy, in all honesty. Henry did Carvalho; Carvalho caught Henry's leg; penalty. Henry may've gone down easily, but so would anyone in the circs. Certainly more of a pen than (say) Neill on Grosso.

    So it was. Having missed the first 15 minutes, I was astonished to hear the French booing Sporting Ron every time he touched the ball. An unexpected show of loyalty towards the English, or had he indulged himself against the French by then?

    I do think we need to challenge the notion of Big Phil's god-like genius. After beating no-one of any note to win the last WC with an obscenely talented Brazil side that most of the people of CW could have managed, we then see 2 Portugese defeats at home to Greece in Euro 2004 and now their apparently talented side play like this in the current WC. I'm not absolutely convinced that we missed a great deal when he turned us down.

    100% penalty, but of course some people will ignore that fact...

    I must admit I only kept watching the last 10 minutes to see the camera focus on Ronaldo in tears after the game, and it wasn't shown.

    Have to make do with this as best I can find for now (file name is the BBC's):

    If you was a resentful/mildly jealous (because they can actually progress with seemingly average players) England fan I thought you would want Portugal to win. Than your excuse could be “at least we lost to the winners”, instead of the stark realisation that are team lost to this ‘****’ side twice in two years.

    Yeah you're probably right, touch of artistic license used I'd say,

    Sad indication on yourself Marc, watching a game of football primarily to watch a player cry. Sound like some sad **** who reads ‘The Sun’ and has a Ronaldo dart board on his door, which you probably do not use to throw darts at, know what I mean.

    Nah. **** 'em.

    Much as I love penalty shoot-outs they are a fairly unreliable way of ensuring the best team goes through to the next round. We're crap at them, Portugal are obviously better.

    Wow, you really seem to hate him and I fail to understand why.

    Maybe it gives a sense to your life. Fair enough, you could have chosen worse, you could play Scrabble

    You what?

    We all know you have a xenophobic hatred of Henry, but even by your standards this is extreme.

    That was a clear trip, end of story, not something that happens "24 times a game"

    He just about knocked his shin enough so chief could notice and flop over in installments, so it follows you would give penalties for when someone puts their hand on a player because that's the sort of level of contact we're talking about here.

    Still with your hatred of intelligence and logic you'll now go back to shoveling up something completely unrelated and pointless.

    Oh and atichon if you had any semblance of intelligence you might find you enjoy the odd mental game, but unfortunately you'll just have to make do with seeing how hard you can ram your head into a locker door without knocking yourself out.
