Yeah I voted a draw as well.
Semedo did very well and saved us with a last ditch header and william went down midway the 2nd half maybe its his fitness gave the ball away a few times.
in the end good game away to the world champs in their back yard
Yeah Semedo looked good defensively and going forward.
Also the game that France won in the Euros in 1984 (3-2) went into extra time (if I remember correctly) after a 90 min draw.
just need France to drop some points this week away to Croatia but of cause we need to beat Sweden
was shaking like a leaf watching that game very unlucky to lose
after 3 games ( Croatia 2 Sweden 1 today)
Croatia - France
Portugal - Sweden
Your older than me was very Young at that stage.
Of the tens shots apiece, both teams has 3 on target, 3 off target, and 4 shots blocked. Crazy close stats.
Happy to see Pepe and Rambo Dias deal with the French. I thought we did fine, missed a lot of passes but we didn't have much space. Could have won it at the end. Crest la vie.
Raphael played well had Mbappé in his pocket
Mbappé had a very ordinary game,save that great feint in the second half, but even then Patrício stood up and saved comfortably.
was young my self that years tournament was the start of me watching Portugal play for the 1st time
If I was in Portugal at that time I might have watched but was a fat kid eating biscuits in South África at that time.
This game just proved we have the best 11 in national football and the most depth.
WORLD CUP IS COMING WORLD CUP IS COMING
We will reconquer the world.
+1600 mad disrespect. I’m taking those odds though
Today's game showed there's a shift in Portuguese football. The games against france have traditionally been unsuccessful, not that france always had better teams or better players, but somehow (often with a little hand from the refs) they would end up winning. The same things with Italy, and Germany. Even this world champion side couldn't get passed Portugal for the second time in a row.
Now to see if Portugal can be this defensively sound against Germany in the group stage of the Euros instead of the usual crapping of their pants when ever they clash.
Pepe is still a monster at his age, what a performance.
We were well organized, but I still think we completely lack the invention and passing ability we should showcase..how many misplaced passes by Bruno Fernandes today? Felix and Bernardo need to get more involved too, we have to find a way to do that against France and the few other top teams that can match us.
Trincao, with how good his left footed shot is, should have taken that shot when he got past a couple players and was at the top of the box..I know why he passed to Ronaldo who was at worse angle, but he needed the balls to say no and take a chance himself.
The next couple tournaments are going to be good, we just need to find a way to be more clinical and potent in attack and have our creative players involved in the game more.
Still, if Hungary beat Iceland it means we'd play France, Germany in Munich, and Hungary in Budapest. Could there be a more difficult group for us!?
Take it you changed your mind?
He is without a doubt the best Portuguese cb of all time. Brazil fuked up hard letting us have him
