    Not all that surprised from what happened. I put money on Holland/Denmark drawing. Danes aren't just going to roll over and in Kjaer and Agger they've got a solid centre half pairing and they play to their strengths. RVP being meh was inevitable, happens so often when a player smashed it domestically.

    Helps Portugal that they play Denmark next. Win and there will be so much pressure on the Dutch.
    Give the Dutch attitude towards all things German, plus the likelihood of going out if they lose, it should be a lively affair. I'll be quietly astonished if the Dutch finish with 11 on the pitch.

    But the Dutch would prefer Portugal to beat Denmark wouldn't they?

    If they lose they're definitely out, unless they win their remaining match against Portugal and fluke through on goal difference somehow.

    Good game this. Might get some Ronaldo blubbering if Bendtner can make it a hat-trick.

    LOL Ronaldo misses a sitter and Bandtner equalises to possibly send Portugal out.

    This is quite amusing, Ronaldo missing chances, and Bendtner being clinical, funny old game ..

    It's the tournament of the Arsenal loanees so far.

    First Arshavin and now Bendtner.

    Mind you, that's some strike to give the Portuguese the lead again.

    Annoying, but at least Ronaldo didn't score. Bendtner hat-trick on here.

    OOHHH, gotta make the keeper work there.

    Oh well.

    Portugal weren't going to be eliminated by a draw. They could have gone out with the sequence of Germany drawing/beating Holland and then Denmark drawing/winning against Germany in the last game - I think Germany would fancy stuffing Denmark with their ruthless efficiency.

    Hopefully that'll have bumped Bendtner's asking price up a bit.

    Holland/Netherlands whatever they're called only really need a draw here. The only way they could go out if they draw this and then beat Portugal is by goals scored. Even then that would have to include Denmark getting a draw/win against Germany. Netherlands can't have a worse goal difference than Germany or Denmark if they finish on 4 points. So Netherlands would still have it very much in their own hands if they draw tonight.

    Just putting it out there before we get the must win bollocks.
