    Torres!!

    Love to see him get on the sheet.

    I feel bad for Spain because their national march has no lyrics. I'm going to commission Jack Black to write some out of the goodness of my heart.

    Hugo Almeida finds out that neither Carlos Bocanegra or Mathew Upson are playing center half for Spain.

    Jesus, David Villa is a machine. Great low shot, from the left yet again.

    Whole lot of diving going on here, especially by the boys in red.

    Hopeful they clean it up cause the ref doesn't appear to be "buying".

    At least unlike the Swiss match Spain is taking it directly into the box, and that is where you create some space!

    Nice waste of a free kick by Ronaldo... passed it gentle right to his friend, the Spanish keeper.

    +1, also Portugal really needs to step it up and attack more, they won't go far like that

    Still way too much passing around, going backward, not taking it to the box, etc. They need to take it to the box if they want to score.
