    Not a fan of the hot takes that will come if Ronaldo wins an international tournament before Messi so I'm team Poland for this one.

    Oddly the Hungary game makes Portugal even less appealing, because it confirmed that they're choosing to play crap football rather than having it forced upon them by lack of skill. Poland's fans have a really nasty streak though, and the whole country is run by neo-Fascists. If I didn't have money on Portugal I'd probably still half-heartedly want them to win.

    Ronaldo's been doing a great impersonation of Raheem Sterling tonight.

    Should just say forget it to both of these, neither should be semi-finalists.

    Portugal just suck the life out of any match they play.. Poland started well but just got worse and worse as the game progressed. I can't even say the Portuguese made niggly fouls or play-acted like Netherlands in WC '10.. they just shut Poland down without really doing much themselves. Poland only have themselves to blame.

    Portugal's game plan is to score from the one or two clearcut opportunities they create per game (Ronaldo missed a couple today) and shut the opposition out. It's working so far and they've had a pretty friendly draw.

    Portugal have had such a friendly run so far. They haven't faced one truly excellent team yet.

    Actually went to bed instead of watching extra time it was that bad.

    Portugal are going to end up winning the whole thing on penalties.
