Yeah Portugal won the game and now we have quite an interesting intrigue in this group.
Now it would be great to watch Germany against Netherlands. It would be interesting to see how dutch would act as they know the result of this match.
P.S. Portugal and Denmark achieved the same result as Czechs and Russians - 5 goals in a match on this tournament.
Man I so believe nethrlands is not gonna advance in the tournment. And when I said they weren't going too far people said I was crazy
If Germany wins against them all portugal needs is a draw against them and goodbye second strongest team in the tournment
I can imagine the pressure they are going trough there's no way they can play at ease with all that pressure.
But man C.Ronaldo missed those two shots. those two goals could give them the edge in case they lose against netherlands as it would increase their goal count in a worst case scenario.
Yes, it's always better to score as much as possible, especially when there is a great chance that at the end they will count your goals. Still for now it seems that Portugal has an edge in this department, but everything will be more clear after Germany against Netherlands.
I believe Netherlands will try to win as they already know the result of the first game of the day. I think much will depend on what tactics van Marweik will choose, but he is too defense-oriented couch, hence it might be that even in the game he needs to win he might use the same 4-5-1 tactics with one forward and two-three attacking midfileders.
Ronaldo blew two easy chances and they were lucky to win.
If Portugal wouldn't have won everyone would blame Ronaldo, because of his inability to score in those situations, but for now they won't torture him.
Let's hope to see a good game from Germany and Netherlands.
Indeed I started to feel bad about him when he missed the goal and denmark tied it. I don't like him very much because of his atitude but I lived in portugal for 10 years and I know how portuguese people are hard on him sometimes.
Yes, he is really a difficult person to interract with. The thing is that he made himself as he was born and lived for quite some time on Madeira and then went to Sporting Lisboa's football academy and then if I'm not mistaken at 16 or 17 he was already playing for Man utd where he won tons of touramnets including Pre,iere League and Champions League and then he also won several cups with Real and La Liga and he has also got tons of individual trophies.
Of course he is a bit arrogant, but who want be like him in such a situation. In my country football players act mostly like him even though all of them combined aren't anywhere close to him.
But still I can understand portuguiese who don't like him as everyone can have his own opinion on a person.
RVP has the opening and fails.
For now Netherlands play the same way they played against Denmark. They control the ball, they have moments, but can't show a good aiming and can't even show shots on target. I think they don't have luck.
Where was this Mario Gomez for Bayern?
He had actually a good season this year, but still he can't be the only one to decide the result of a long-distance tournament. Especially as Bayenr had problems inside the team during the season. They even fought among each other to some extent.
Wtf? Two goals for Mario Gomez?
Gomez is just insane today.)
And I just don't know how Netherlands can play so bad in defense! They practically don't have any defense and Germany could have scored even more.
Man what a team germany. The perfect team. A perfect defense and a perfect counter attack. Even when Netherlands has the ball they completely erase their effectiveness.
