Well, this game promises to be exciting. By exciting I mean a passionate game of ugly English football stifling the Portugal offense, who will have a petulant C. Ronaldo make a few runs, but be lacking their wizard Deco, who got 3 of the 20 cards issued in the brawl against Holland. However, Maniche the Portuguese hero of 2004, and gamewinner against Holland may yet pot himself another goal.
England, for their part, would do well to provide Wayne Rooney with some assistance up front.
I’ll watch this game, I’ll cheer this game (probably for England by a narrow margin. Though I may cheer the Ports just to piss Corey Cornish off.) Regardless I expect a low-scoring, boring affair, that will lack rhythm but not redcards.
MARGIN: 1-1 (5-4 ON PENALTIES)
