not one!!! but seven..
In my last post I said, Portugal were disappointing and so were Ivory Coast. Well, Portugal have erased all that with their performance. hats off to them.
C. Ronaldo as a player is very talented, but his attitude and play-acting do irritate me. And being Arsenal fan I have very few reasons to like him, other than for his football skills. But lets not get there, the point is it wasn't just one man show, and Portugal played well as a team.
I am not sure I would rate them as Final candidates, but they surely can't be ignored. The reason is they had one good match, but so did Germany.
So lets hope they don't crumble against Brazil. A spectacular win can lift confidence, and a team on confidence is unbeatable, as long as they don't get complacent.
So will I add Portugal in my world cup favorite's list? No! not right now.
For now its still Argentina/Holland/Germany/Spain. Yeah I shuffled it, according to their performances.
And what to say about the fighters and underdogs. Lots of them in this edition of world cup. Low-hyped or Underdogs: - Uruguay, Mexico, Paraguay, Chile, Netherlands, Denmark, Portugal
Fighters: - Greece, Swiss, USA, Serbia, Slovenia, Ghana, Japan, New Zealand, Australia
