The first few minutes of Spain - Portugal were good. After 70 minutes I knew it would go to penalties, Spain was just passing it sideways/backwards Barca style. I recorded it, and went for a walk instead, so I could fast forward through when I came back. Came back just in time to watch the penalties, as I predicted!
As far as FM goes, one time I was down a goal and went on overload with something like 50 or 60 minutes to go. There weren't even any highlights for the rest of the game! Sometimes I don't mind my team playing poorly, so that I can yell at them, which tends to bring about a 15-20 game undefeated streak.
