ah well, portugal deserved to win


the referee was pittiful though
unbelievably bad

I must say that I hope Portugal won't win the tournament by playing like they did tonight
which was extremely negative soccer for over 45 minutes

Alas, it was not meant to be. Portugal were better tonight. Still, the Dutch team had quite some small opportunities. They didn't play bad, despite the actions of the referee (who indeed was bad, very inconsequent).

Euro 2004 is over for us.

Come on Czech Republic!

I really hope Portugal don't win, it'll break my heart thinking how far England could have got if the ref hadn't had shit for brains...poor Sol, if he had the tiniest bit more luck he could have put us into the quarter finals of France 98 and the semi-finals of Portugal 2004 Anyway all in the past now I guess...get ready to cheer for Japan come July 17th...the AFC Championships!

SAGE! The goal was NO GOAL! I dislike constantly explaining this to people.

And before you get on me, I hate Portugal soccer and wanted England to take the whole thing.

So who does everyone want to win tonight's semi-final? I think I want the Czech Republic to win because I love watching them. But then again, a Portugal/Greece final would just be nice to see...underdogs being successful and all that.

well, Czech Republic has been the best team in the tournament so far, so I hope they'll make it

I do hope they will play a less negative game tonight then they did against Denmark
because we can be 98% sure Greece won't do much except for leaning on its defense either
at least you could say that lack real class in offense though

my revised prediction

the final is going is very close...

1 goal difference in favor of portugal most likely...

a draw after 120 min is not very unlikely

it was a funny match
when Nedved left due to his injury it alsmost seemed as if for the first time this tournament Czech Republic olayed with an element of fear in their mind instead of total self believe
it wasn't even a surprise that Greece managed the goal in the end

strange game, soccer
