    So far we've either had ties or games in which only one team has scored. This is certainly a good pick to break that weird streak.

    I have to agree with leonidas here. Portugal should win this 2-1. This Match should be a very, very close Match, and I wouldn't be surprised to see this one end in a draw.

    Also, Portugal was about to create their first chance through Danny. Sadly, the Ivorian Defense stopped the creation of that chance.

    What a shot by Ronaldo! Too bad it went off the crossbar.

    It annoys me that Ronaldo has so much skill and yet he feels the need to dive which will always tarnish his reputation

    It's painfully frustrating, isn't it?
