    Germany look a class above for mine. Portugal not out the blocks yet really.

    Germans are obviously slipping. When they pull out the cynical foul they usually catch the guy properly.

    Not quite a goal doesn't count I suppose. Oh and yes Portugal are and always have been dull as **** whenever I've seen them on TV.

    First goal line controversy of the tournament but the replay is pretty clear, not a goal

    Oh some England twaddle.

    Rumours that Portugal were going to be more attacking than they were in 2010 seem to be unfounded, hope Germany get one early in second half and we might get a game. Germany clearly not going to be allowed to destroy teams in the counter llike they did in the World Cup.

    Currently making a whole pound in profit from some bets I put on this game. Could do with Germany scoring another though, then I'd make £6.50. Pretty hardcore stuff.

    I would. What did Denmark offer aside from a fluke bounce that landed at Krohn-Dehli's feet?

    Portugal might be equally **** in front of goal, admittedly. But Ronaldo might wake up for one second and that's 0-1 down.
    Messi scores on the rebound.

    They made simple and effective use of the ball, and made a team which were clear favourites chase the game. It wasn't an attacking masterclass, but they won't care much if it gets them another result like today's. But, in any event, given Portugal's less than adventurous style (granted they may come out of their shell a bit now that the Denmark match will become one they really need to win), I could see Denmark keeping them at bay and sneaking a goal.

    Portuguese gave it a real go after they went behind, tbf; last twenty minutes was like watching a whole different game. One would hope they'd have the genitals to actually try to play football from the outset against the Danes.

    Why no West Ham’s brick ****house Ricardo Vaz Te for Portugal? Can’t be any worse than Helder Postiga.

    Helps Portugal that they play Denmark next. Win and there will be so much pressure on the Dutch.
