Well, under that argument, Greece would be a top team.

And they are not even here.

In my humble opinion, World Cup "tradition" (i.e., playing in most of them and doing relatively well), hopefully winning at least one tournament before, being considered a candidate to win this one, being a group seed, etc.

I am afraid that Portugal does not qualify with most of those conditions.

makes sense.


and to answer your earlier question, when England play Sweden, the only reason i would be concerned would be because Sweden have some good players...nothing to do with Ericksons nationality.

and even then, i'm not that concerned anyway

To me Portugal IS a top team . They got such a great squad that a lot of teams dont have . In Fact the situation of Portugal today to me is like old Holland , they didnt win but they always had such a great team and they were always able to do a lot . Just look at the 94 and 98 games with brazil for example . They were epics , yeah sure in the 1st Bergkamp , which I adore him as player , but he did the "Maradona trick" , still it was a really tough game for Brazil . Same in 98 . Anyway the point is , today Portugal can do the same , if they dont go too far at least , they will gave a game the winner that wished never played with them . The winner team is going to get out of it , very exausted .

This is a nice one and really close to the stadium:

20151 MILANO

PHONE: 0039/02-38101746
FAX:0039/02-38101786


Btw, don't forget that "San Siro" is also the name of the city section where the stadium is

Don't know, since you have players like Totti, Del Piero and Pirlo each of them can shoot freekicks, under this point of view we are very good. Attack, Luca Toni will be sure, I don't know how Lippi wants to play, tonight against Switzerland Toni will be the only "true" forward supported by Totti and Del Piero. I think that at the worldcup Totti will play behind Toni and Gilardino

I know what it means to be in that stadium, it's everytime an experience, and I still have scared in my mind the day I've seen U2 there......................... It's el maximo!

Those 2 hotels are not so close the stadium like those other 2 I have signed you, and they're even more expensive, if I don't get wrong, at Ibis you pay 99 Euro for a night, but their more near the centrum. Le Querce you pay not more than 40 Euro, I believe, and Bonola around 30 Euro. These prices are for one person booking.



Julio Cesar better makes a better season next year, otherwise he will see San Siro from another perspective.................television!

The thing is mate , these 2 are part of this plan , which like u pay a certain tax in the year , and u got free 7 reservations in the year , anywhere in the world , including Milano.

MMmmm , you guys think he failed ? I though he was doing great in Inter , the crowd seemed to like him , dont know.......

mmm and in few hours theres gonna be Italy's game , gonna watch it , it's together with Ger X Jap , most interesting game of the week.

Yeah, but their not so indicated for your case.....................don't know, try to have more informations about.


Julio Cesar started good, but he went losing the map game after game actually, he has shown too many insecurities, he has to grow yet. Another thing is that he took Toldo's place, who is one of our absolute idles at Inter. Mancini has put Julio immediately as number 1, this was a big mistake, because you have to work and show a lot before getting the number 1 at Inter. It was probably the trainer's fault, he has given to him to much responsabilities in a very short time. He's a good keeper, but I much prefer Toldo, but Julio definitely needs and deserves a second chance to make things better.
Don't wait nothing special of Italy tonight, it's gonna be very experimental. Germany-Japan was a great one, once again the germans showed their not a team. I think they will have done a lot by passing the groupstages, and Japan will make it hard to Croatia for 2nd place
