Pepe is a beast of a CB in all fairness

I actually watched the BBC bit about him and gained a little bit of respect for him.

A real shame he is such a tool at times on the park for what seems such a nice guy off it.

would like Portugal to win this, simply because they have been the only team trying to win the game for most of it

At this rate Quaresma is going to come off the bench and score the winner in the final.

The most undeserved semi finalists ever? :D

Still no wins in the tournament in 90 mins.

For some reason I just knew that Blaszczykowski would miss :(

Trivela deciding it again.

Horrible from goalkeepers, btw.

They just dive randomly and hope for the best.

Especially Fabianski.

Fair result, GG. Blaszczykowski telegraphed his location, keeper did well.

They've been one of the most dire teams to watch in this competition. I was hoping they'd get punted for that reason alone.

Pepe'gal progress

If Wales can nick past Belgium, you wouldnt put it past them doing Portugal.

Come on guys, backing Wales against Belgium and then Portugal as well? No chance against either.

It was before a game, I think at the weekend.

It was just a short bit maybe 5 minutes, was actually a bit of an eye opener. I never knew he actually gave up on the game because of the way players reacted on the park, also how he gave a lot of money to people from his home town.

you don't need to win in 90 if you know how to take pens or score in extra time.

Wales beat & drew against Belgium in the qualifiers didn't they?

I say they have a good chance to go through tomorrow, especially if Belgium look like they did in the group stage.

Belgium without Vertonghen and Vermaelen though. Looks like a Lukaku-Denayer-Alderweireld-Meunier defence which doesn't exactly look great.

Portugal are going to win this without winning a game inside 90 minutes arent they.

If Belgium play like they did last time out, Wales don't stand a chance. I'd say Wales needed another 2 or 3 Bales, but Ramsey has been better than Bale this tournament, so another 2 or 3 Ramseys would have sufficed.

Portugal will get to the final I reckon, don't think Belgium or Wales can beat them. I hope for a Portugal v Italy final going to penalties.

Nah, can't see past anyone other than the Germans. Germany look like they can still shift up a gear if needed.

What do you count as dire? Apart from Croatia game they've created a huge amount of chances in each game they've played. If Ronaldo finished like he does for Real and they'd be blitzing sides 3/4 goals at least.

Ronaldo has been good this tournament apart from his finishing. Involved in moves, constantly on the move, work rate higher then normal. Just can't finish for save his life.

They've just been boring imo. Think I've fallen asleep 3 times during games and all have involved Portugal. I don't agree with you on Ronaldo. He looks like he's not fully fit. Always moaning and acting like it's all about him. Just not the Ronaldo we're used to seeing. His free kicks have been terrible too. About time someone told him to do one with regards to the freekicks.

This exact same day last year, Portugal lost the euro u21 final on penalties vs Sweden

this time we won.

I would sue the Portuguese Federation if we had lost again on penalties for bullying, because it's also my birthday :D

C'mon Portugal!!!!

I'm genuinely stunned that you think he's been good. He's been so far from that I have to question your sanity.

Ronaldo alongside João Mario have been the worst players for Portugal (from the ones who are playing more often)

Portugal have been decent, they are just making sure they don't peak too early.

Portugal's training camp was useless, because the Portuguese tactic model has a target man, which is Ronaldo, who decided to be on holidays in Ibiza during all training camp long, so it didn't allow the team to know how to play with him.

So Portugal have started the competition without any coordination between Ronaldo and the rest of the team. Every single Portuguese game so far, they have changed tactic during the 1st half, and kept changing plenty of times during the games, because they just can't find any decent tactic to allow Ronaldo to have the space that he requires.

The manager keeps being clueless by now. And the next game will be different once again.

Never understood why the winning toss would opt for 2nd. I always think the team going 2nd has the pressure. If the first team misses, then there's the added pressure on the 2nd team knowing it could put your team in the lead and if the first one goes in, the 2nd team have the added pressure of trying to keep things level.

Agreed, I'm a Ronaldo fan generally (sometimes he annoys me) but his link-up play has been woeful.

2nd time man of the match

such a shame the clueless manager placed him in the wing just because he's pacey...that's removing the best that he has to offer...his wildness

I'm loving Ronaldo. It's like a one man theatre production. He's just so moody poo! Love it.

Loving that Sanchez guy. Is it just the dreds, or does he remind anyone else of Edgar Davids?
