awesome goal of cristiano ronaldo . next te final .portugal .
“So far Cristiano Ronaldo is the great figure of this EURO and I hope that he’ll continue like this for a few more games, still two to go. Hopefully Portugal can reach the final and he continues to break records. By the end of his career he will have beaten all records possible because he really is the best player in the world.” - Nuno Gomes - (source, my translation)
Q:So, after 4 hard-fought matches from Portugal, they're in the semi-finals. I guess "excited would be an understatement for you going into such a big match. What do you think of Portugal's chances against Spain (assuming the favorites take it against France, who have played well this tournament.) World Cup 2012 Spain barely knocked off Portugal 1-0 en route to their World Title.. How do you feel about their chances againt the defending world and european champions?
Well, first of all I believe that the Portuguese team gained more and more confidence in the last 2 matches. Not only Cristiano, all players are important. But he was the motor and motivator for the last 2 wins. Just as a captain should be.
Also, for me it is not at all clear that Spain will defeat France. Both teams didn’t convince me 100% until now.
So, first of all we have to know whether France or Spain will be the opponent. In both cases, I see Portugal’s chances 50:50. Not more, not less. If they have less bad goalpost luck, the chance for Portugal might be even a bit higher. So I am confident.
I am a fan of Portuguese football since many years and it’s one of my dreams that they will win a big title. Why not now?
… ”Full-time: Portugal deservedly swagger into the semi-finals, where they will pose a real threat to either Spain or France. Ronaldo was brilliant but he was not alone: Moutinho and Coentrao were great too. The Czechs defended very well for long periods and, of course, did well to get to this stage. But they never looked like going any farther.” … Read the whole live-report - it’s excellent
