Portugal vs England was GREAT!!!

I'm happy that Portugal won, even if I hate matches to end with penalties!

Now if the English team hadn't been playing like 11 big girls after Owen's goal than they would have had more chances like that. It was bad tactics and that's why they lost.
If you watch the slow motions of the incident, you can see that both Terry & Campbell are looking only at the ball, not the keeper and both jump only for the ball - neither of them 'attacked' the goalie, they were trying to get the ball and have every right to occupy that space - they did not make any deliberate attempt to impede the keeper.
I agree with your comments about England's tactics btw - they did contribute to England's defeat, but it doesn't alter the fact that the goal should have stood.
Incidentally, I'm not sure where in the rules of football it refers to any particular part of the penalty area where the goalie has special protection - he's surely either fouled or he's not fouled, it doesn't matter where he is?

So who's your bet of winning this? Could France do it again, or is it Netherland's year? Point-wise, Czech Republic is far ahead.

If Portugal ends up winning, I could just hear it now "Home Country advantage".... no matter how well they play.

I'd like to see Czech Republic win it - mainly 'cos they've got 2 Liverpool players -- Go Miiiilan!! Go Vladi!

let me listen to what the dutch guys have to say about the penalty goal awarded in favor of them against Latvia and by
1-meter offside on the 2nd goal in same match.

if you compare it, the england goal was very clean one.

wasnt it

What do you want us to say about it?


*indeed sees the difference in Davids being awarded a penalty against Latvia, while Van Nistelrooy didn't get one against the Czech Republic*

It was no goal. The guy had his arm clearly right in the keeper's face.

Good call by the ref on that one. Still said they lost though

I hope Jerome Rothen plays tonight, even for two minutes. I've become a bit of a fan after his exploits with AS Monaco in this year's Champions League.

I think Santini needs to drop Makelele and play Zidane and Vieira in the middle, put Pires on the left, and drop Trezeguet for Saha or even Luyindula.

But then I don't pick the team.

I'm amazed it's got to the 55th minute without a goal in this game.
