Portugal squeak past mighty Angola

11 Jun

1-0 final. Ronaldo & Figo ran the show for them… there was absolutely nothing from the Portuguese after Ronaldo was substituted 15 minutes into the second half: very negative move. Not sure if they had a shot on target after that. Very dull, but we did watch it in a Portuguese bar, which is what the WC is all about. The story around the game (colonial power against former colony) ended up being more interesting the game itself.

First game for team USA tomorrow: Unfortunately I fear they may be a little outclassed. Going to be interesting to see how Italy and Australia get on, too.

    The USA had better be outclassed, I’ve got a big lump of cash on them not qualifying. Stupid CONCACAF bastards.

    Heh. Pretty severely outclassed, to be fair. They're definitely a better team than they showed today though, imo. Eddie Pope is mint.
