Hope Ronaldo scores a hat trick and Bale fails a post match drugs test. Come on Portugal!

Wales 4 v Portugal 3 in a thriller. Ronaldo hat trick with Wales equalizing within minutes each time. Which causes a Ronaldo meltdown.

Lol.. Wales hatred knows no bounds it seems ( was going to insert a smiley here,but there isn't one with sheep doing rude stuff....)

Occasionally a match comes along where you genuinely don't care who wins. Although it's a bit more rare for the reasoning to be that neither team deserves to.

Lol. Beating/Outlasting Croatia or Belgium in knockout game gives credence to a challenge for the title. Both sides that pretty much all the deposed teams would struggle to beat (bar Italy perhaps). They deserve to be where they are or we could claim the French are unworthy too.

You're seriously over-rating Croatia here.

You're missing the point. It's Ronaldo and a bunch of Welsh people.

Don't worry. According to BoyBrumby, half of them aren't Welsh anyway.

I'm expecting we'll be thrashed tomorrow night, but even so I'll probably be roaming the streets of Shinjuku at 4 am looking for a bar that's open -- not that I don't do that most nights anyway, of course, but it'll be in a better cause than usual.

Don't care either ways. Was rooting for Belgium, but would like to see a red card for Pepe regardless of result.

If he plays. Has a thigh problem.

I'm conflicted on this one, I don't know who I want to lose more. Ramsey being banned takes away Wales' only likeable feature.

Portugal came 3rd in an easy group, there is no way they deserve to be there.
