UEFA Euro 2004
So Portugal lost. I think that some of those shots should have been goals but they were ust so frustrated they just kicked the ball to get it out. But we lost fair and square.

But, do you know what I loooove about Portugal? What were portuguese fans doing after the game? They were celebrating with the Greeks. They didn't care that they lost. They didn't blame it on other people. They accepted the game and had a grand ole time. No riots or nothing. I love the fact that we are not sore losers.

thats because us portuguese arent sore losers.. the dutch did the same after they lost with portugal.. i was watching rtpi before the game and they were telling the reporter that win or lose there was still going to be a party.. i love when everyone respects the final results.. most people cant handle it and claim that it was unfair.. im so proud of portugal making to the finals.. they were amazing

*lol* No offense to anybody who's Italian but damn, they get PISSED when they lose. It's always somebody else's fault.

Absoulutely, I think the fans knew how lucky the Portugese were to be in the final. They knew it was incredible achievement and it was a cause for celebration.

That`s a thing i liked about Portugal.If the opposite happened,most Greeks,and i am not referring to the players,would be like "the referee sucked","our shoes were big","the food we ate was bad" and stuff...

acceptance is best. no use blaming your own shortcomings on someone else. and that's so cool of the portugese to party with the greeks. in the end it was a fabulous competition. congrats to the hosts for showing everyone a good time!

On all of the Greek news, the team said that the people of Portugal were the most warm hearted people, and the Greeks should take some lessons. and its true.
