UEFA Euro 2004
i cannot believe portugal lost....:( im speechless
i know how you feel.. but im still proud of portugal for making it to the finals.. they were amazing during this whole tournament.. im so very proud of them.. when ronaldo started crying at the end i screamed "dont cry.. i still love you" at the tv.. haha my mom called me crazy.. i still love the whole team.. 2nd place is still good :)
I'd say 2nd place is great :)
yea 2nd is good
i was like aaaaaaaaaaaaw ronaldo ur so adorable i love it when guys get so passionate to cry! i would cry too
haha oh man i thought i put great cause i know i posted that 2nd place was great somewheres else.. i thought it was here.. but yea i agree with you it is great :)
You can't believe Portugal lost? Did you even watch the Euro Cup? Portugal were incredibly lucky to even make it to the finals. I admit their game against England was great and all but apart from that and Spain they were very average.
When you compare how well Portugal played to other teams against Greece, they certainly weren't one of the better teams. The Czech Rep never looked like losing to the Greeks and France put up a much better fight than the Portugese did.
The Portugese need to thank the most mediocre game of the whole tornament (apart from Croatia v Switzerland)for being in the final. Holland never showed any signs of serious form and relied upon luck to get them through (Germany v Czechs and PK shots).
The Portugese had many advantages they failed to capitalize upon against Greece. Obviously the home team advantage, then the draw in which they always had an advantage of a few extra days of rest. Some of the most talented individuals in the Cup (Figo, Ronaldo, Nuno Gomes, Rui Costa, Deco and the list goes on.) and they couldn't even threaten the Greek goal once.
Portugal forgot to play as a team in the final, every chance was a shot on goal from way out or an individual effort. Portugal never looked like the best team in the tornament and the final only prooved what every one already knew.
No offense. Have a nice day.
yea i admit that they played a bad last game but u surely cannot say that all their games were mediocre.and yes for ur information i DID watch the game. i realise the greek were playing slightly better but still all in all the game sucked. it was boring and both teams showed no effort. portugal was much better than spain and england.
Although both teams did look a little flat, this was because Greece was on top. In every one of their games (even against Russia) they had this style of play, that would suck the life out of the other team. The reason Greece looked good is because when a match went this way, it was clear they were in charge.
Portugal were clearly the worse team as this was not their style of play and they had no control over the match and had given into Greece.
Also your use of the word suck (in reference to the Greeks) is quizzical. If you watch any of the great tornament teams of the past, this is their style of play. Whenever Germany win they play this way, same as the Italians, because they're great tornament teams. They don't show incredible amounts of skill or attractive football, they show just enough to win. They don't suck they simply have a plan.
no need to be rude. i have every right to be speechless. dont tell me to get over it. ive been following them since the beginning
aaahhh... i was kidding yo. i'm not ruud ;-p i've been following them since the beginning too. anyway all the teams i was rooting for lost too :-/ hehehe its just football eh?
Well what do you expect? I'd be sad if my home team lost too. Portuguese fans have already aknowledged that they lost, no sore losers here. *lol*
yea i have gotten over it seeing it ended a long time ago...
