Portugal deserved to winSunday, June 8, 2008 at 0:15 | Posted in Euro-2008, football, Sports | Leave a comment
As the Portugal-Turkey game was approaching overtime I thought that Turkey would deserve an equalizer but just then this happened:
A yellow card would have been the least to expect but the incident passed unnoticed by the referee. So I was by no means sorry to witness my pool bid ultimately screwed up by this goal:
The Portuguese team deserved their 2-0 win without a question. It was by no means an easy game for them but they were in control of it most of the time. Portugal now absolutely needs to win just one of their remaining two games but Turkey can not afford another lost game. Group A may very well turn out to be more interesting than expected, baring in mind that Switzerland played well while loosing their game.
