When you watch the match in a pub with 100 other fanatical England fans and you see that piece of CRAP refereeing after 89 minutes of complete tension, you form the unshakeable opinion that Sol's header was a goal (and it was), but I admit I am hardly a neutral unbiased observer...

Anyway, apart from Greece against France, the team I have supported in each knockout match has lost, so I don't know whether to support Greece cause I want them to win or Portugal cause I want them to lose

Greece will be confident.

They know they can beat Portugal.

But in the end I think the Portuguese know better by now than to sit back and think Greece is easy, much as they did in the first game. I think this one will come right down to the wire, but in the end my prediction is...




2-1 Greece.

Did you notice that the Dutch team was there too? A macht is a good macht if played by two teams. One team can not play against it self.
I really don't agree with you. I'm a fan of the Dutch soccer. Holland is a really good team, but I think they have a bad coach. Anyway, it was a good game that Portugal deserved to win, simply because we managed to do better than The Netherlands. In this stage of the competition there are no bad teams or favorites. The winner will be the one that does it better in during the 90 minutes, or 120.

The Dutch did try though!


*thinks it's outrageous that the UEFA now wants to ban Van Nistelrooy for 2 matches, just because he complained to the referee for his handling of the match*

I don't blame Portugal for the match being disappointing (it was disappointing quality wise IMO)
the dutch were more to blame for that
we lacked quality, portugal didn't

but in the second half portugal could at least have pretended that they wanted to play attacking football
which they really should since they have a real quality attack

I do hope portugal will win the final because greece is even worse in that aspect

Ordinarily I'd agree with you, but because he plays for Man Utd I find it hard to have sympathy for Van Nistelrooy.

The ban is for matches with the Dutch team, not club matched with Man Utd. If it goes through, it means he'll have to miss the match against the Czech Republic (yep, after the qualifying matches for Euro 2004 and the group stage in the actual tournament, we meet them again). And he'll also miss the match against Macedonia, which is less painful. Still...

*wonders then why the English players didn't get any bans, considering the Portugal - England match*

So far the game has been monotonous, though Greece has just scored. We already expected this, cause Greeks play a destructive game. I just want to say that this as been a great tournament, though I miss Ireland. I think Portugal and Ireland have a lot in common - two small countries who have been facing along the history strong and threatening neighbours - though Irish are usually prouder of their nationality (and this fact as shown good result in the development of their country). I dont know about the other players, but I know that Rui Costa and Rui Gomes are both U2 fans. Im not a fan of soccer players, but now I have a bigger respect of those two people. Were going to celebrate, no matter who wins. Portugal is living one of the greatest moments of moments of our times. Now Im gonna watch the part of the game that will make the difference.

I think they were even the better team on the night
well, Greece didn't create a chance either
but they prevented Portugal from getting even one half decent chance

defense

Congrats to Greece for winning Euro 2004. Indeed, they were a very strong team, maybe not so much on the offence, but their defence was impenetrable.

*thinks Greece now has a dozen or so new semi-gods*
