    Pretty cagey stuff so far, but I suppose we have to expect that from now on in.

    Why wouldn't you bring on Nelson Oliveira?
    Got him first goalscorer.

    Decent bit of play from Ronaldo there.

    Yes. There was a Tournament that was really good, then became utterly tedious in the knock-out stages, can't remember which one, they all merge in a drunken haze after a while.

    Early to say that obviously, but you can see at least one team in each Quarters that will wish to play negatively.

    On the one hand it's that ****, but OTOH, it's been deserved and to the team that have been trying to win.

    Still, no 0-0s.

    That was well worked. Although was certainly helped by Gabre-Selesse's ball watching

    Czechs were horrible, couldn't cross the ball and were giving it away at every opportunity. Baros was downright useless - didn't chase, didn't jump for headers, nothing. Have to wonder what he was even there for.

    Well, that was a fairly dour affair. Czechs had nothing to them, and Portugal were only better because they had Ronaldo.

    Well I normaly want the side that actually tries to score a goal to win so perfectly happy for Portugal to go through, makes for a better semi final at any rate.

    The real fun will start tomorrow with the Eurozone grudge match. Doubt the football will be particularly exciting, but I'm hoping it'll be a fiery contest. Could be amusing. Just hope Greece aren't thrashed.

    Germany to get an early goal and get 4 or 5.

    Still even the slightest possibility of Greece winning makes this game an entertaining prospect.
