hahaha DESTROYED the pretenders.... lost to the swiss and bored us all to sleep with all the passing, until the opposition just gave 'em the 1-0 to allow them to become world champions... what a farce..... today, they were shown up by the REAL champions - VIVA PORUGALE!!! obrigado friends!
I'm SO sorry Jose, I got so caught up in teams, victories and trophies (none of which included Portugal) that I typed 2006 instead of 2008 when referring to the European Championships..
Does that make the facts not valid, or were you just grasping at straws? If I had correctly typed '08 doesn't seem like there was much in your response to warrant anything more than a cup of tea..
Thanks for mentioning Zidane by the way, that was a very memorable event in World Cup History... surely one that will go down with Portugal's..... and..... oh and of course.....
Let's re-visit this in 2012 after another European Championships failure... then perhaps 2014 after World Cup?
Adios my friend.
The Yank might have his tournament dates mixed up a bit but nobody can deny that the Portuguese fail to deliver on the big occasion .
Take that buck toothed long necked Ronaldo for example .
When he was at Utd he only played well when he had 70.000 moronic well wishers cheering his every mincing little step , but anytime there was a genuine opposition or a crunch game like a semi final or a final he just simply crumbled .
That Nanny is even worse .
He has good moments at Old Trafford but never mind the big occasion he cant even handle crowd abuse let alone man marking .
The Portuguese have had some fine players like Paulo Sousa & Rui Costa but the current crop are nothing to write home about .
not sure you know what you're talking about mate..... there were no euros in 2006... just a world cup that the italians won.... oh and a certain zidane got himself banned for 3 matches... obrigado!!
