First of the elimination quarterfinal games in Euro2008 was today — Portugal vs Germany.
I was rooting for Portugal, who played brilliantly in their initial games. Germany, on the other hand, was lacklustre and squeeked through to this round.
Final score: 3-2 Germany.
Portugal couldn’t BUY a goal. Christiano Ronaldo, the best player in the world, had a single assist, and no goals. The Germans, who couldn’t play well at all in their initial 3 games, suddenly came alive.
