Ronaldo is the best player ever
The Fairy Queen scores twice.....sickening, especially against The Netherlands!
response to the number 111.Sorry? Portuguese what?Portuguese GYPSIES??Where u from???oh,romania.....I though so...
blame it on Arjen Robben
The Dutch lost three games by one goal, but they lost. In another group they might have advanced, but even Denmark is a class team that would without any doubt qualify in any other group. UEFA needs to fix the rules, espcially for seeding teams. Not to seed Germany, but Poland and Ukraine was nothing but incompetence.
Arjjen Robbens new employers have just secured his vaunted services for a 6 month trial period as a novelty act with Chipperfields circus providing he makes the grade and becomes a popular crowd pleaser: he`s flicking balls with his head, feet and off the chest with the seals but the trainer has got everything under control I understand: if Robben fails to give the balls back to the seals, who are very popular with the crowds, especially the children the lion trainer takes over in an enclosed cage with 3 bengal tigers to chase the miscreant Robben until he drops his balls or they get Clawed off him. This form of training is considered to be humane for the tigers by the trainer and the RSPCA who always allows each tiger in turn to have a playful wrestle with Robben who seems to be getting the idea of the game by running away as fast as he can with the balls and might eventually learn from bitter experience (Clawed balls) and developing a higher voice pitch that he is supposed to distribute the ball amoungst the seals now that the tigers have his scent of fear. Past football coaches and managers who were unable to get Robben to do anything he was told despite bribes of high salaries and financial rewards are very interested in Robbens progress and training in the circus as a novelty act and are understood to be prepared to make bids for his services if he proves to be suitably trained and still usable next season.
the dutch should have started both van der vaart and huntelaar from the outset of this competition. you can't leave your top qualifying goal-scorer on the bench in a major tournament. well, actually you can, but look what happens.
Too bad that that cheating portuguese gypsies got through
@109 - Bite me cow-tipper. Go De Oranje ! You're no footie lover, you're just a pr/at lol.
@105 -Haven't you got to pay your pimp or something you racist bell-end. PO you bungle.
The ever-so-lovely de Jong said, prior to the match, that Portugal had a few good offensive players, but the Dutch team was better. Nigel, Nigel...Who's going home with zero points, now?
Ronaldo should have had two more and an assist.
the dutch had 62% possesion 514 passes to 314 other stats were evens except their shots on goal were half that of Portugal so not totally outclassed But what on earth were the strikers up to?
@101 - PO bindipper -we don't care what you anti-English bungles have to say for yourselves. Jog on you muppet.
Kudos to the portugal team. They have a mission i.e. To knock out netherlands from this competition and they have thus achieved their set goal. I dont want to take anything away from the portugal team, they played more cohesive football than the netherlands. Goodbye to euro 2012 and get prepared for world cup in the qualifiers any moment after this competition. What a tough group, but the better 2 emerge from the group and i wish them good luck in subsequent matches. Toyin kadiri
i hope Portugal & England meet AGAIN in these Euros & get knocked out by Portugal yet AGAIN! lol Goodluck
Dutch were totally outclassed tonight; something seriously wrong within the Holland camp. Might have been arrogance or over confidence in their own ability and chances of winning but they have certainly failed to perform throughout the competition. Writing was on the wall for Holland when the FA announced that England would be looking to redevelop English football based upon the dutch stystem.
The Dutch have squatted in their pants! I said this would be Robben's Waterloo year! Sorry,the coach will have to pack his bags right away!
Great game. Holland played good but the portuguese were just better. Ronaldo played amazing finally.
Good job Portugal, shame Denmark couldn't beat the Germans because that would've been a great turn out for the odds. Oh well but I suspect both Germany and Portugal to make it to the semi finals and hopefully be alongside Spain and England (if not England then France or Italy/Croatia). But I will stick with England for now.
