    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

    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.

    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.

    Mbappé had a very ordinary game,save that great feint in the second half, but even then Patrício stood up and saved comfortably.

    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.

    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!?
