Portuguese Do It With Ease

Portuguese Do It With Ease

I was actually expecting a lot more from the Bosnians in this match… I mean, in the last match they came out scathing for war, but by the end of this one all they’d done was fire blanks! Now we have to watch man-o-sex C-Ron and his tanned cronies prance around the toughened streets of...

That’s What I’m Talkin Bout!

Another action packed day at the Jumierah beach soccer stadium and another day when I think my obsessive fascination with cheer leaders has reached crisis level. I would sound the alarm, but there’s still 4 days left in this tournament, so I ain’t pulling the plug just yet! Teams to have made the next cut...

Predictions – Final World Cup Spots

Expect more than just fireworks tonight when Bosnia-Hertzegovina host Portugal and I’m even going as far as saying prepare yourself for an upset! On the weekend the two teams played out an epic match in which Portugal just scraped through and I think that onslaught by the Bosnians will continue tonight. There is a great...

FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup

The FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup kicks off today on Jumeirah Beach and I’m going to be heading down there as often as I can to get in on it. Having to ‘work for the man’ means I don’t get the pleasure of being able to frolic around Dubai chasing the copious amounts of women...
Portugal Escape Bosnian Onslaught

Portugal Escape Bosnian Onslaught

No it isn’t war, although the way these two teams attacked each other in last nights qualifier would leave you thinking it was 1992 all over again! By far, Portugal’s best player was their crossbar, with their left post coming in a close second and Deco in a distant third and as both sides missed...

Review – Portugal 2 v 3 Germany

It was an all out offensive in the opening 30 minutes by ze Germans, a Blitzkrieg if you must and it caught the Portuguese defense at sixes and sevens. I honestly thought that Portugal had the goods to make the finals this year, but ze Germans stepped up when it mattered most and uncharacteristically threw...

Prediction – Portugal v Germany

These two teams came into the tournament as bookies favourites and tonight one of them goes home. I’m backing Portugal to progress, mainly because they’ve played more consistently throughout the group phase and have more experience in their team. Germany on the other hand have played well in patches, but their opponents were no where...

Review – Switzerland 2 v 0 Portugal

Finally the Swiss fans were able to cheer for their team and after two matches of nothing but heart break, the team walked away with their heads high after a moral boosting win over a second string Portugal side, who now face Germany in the quarters… not the semi’s like I’d once predicted. Hopefully, Portugal...

Prediction – Switzerland v Portugal

This match is likely to be uneventful. Portugal have qualified and Switzerland have been eliminated. At best the Swiss, still licking their wounds will want to walk away with some pride and Portugal will probably field their B team so everyone gets a run. I predict:Switzerland 1 v 1 Portugal

Review – Czech 1 v 3 Portugal

The Portuguese took a step closer to the title by turning it on against the Czechs. Ronaldo played a big part in their dominance with two assists and one goal, while Deco pulled the strings from the midfield like a finely tuned whore earning her meal ticket… and he even did the dirty jobs that...

Review – Portugal 2 v 0 Turkey

Portugal’s star studded lineup dominated the majority of this match, as expected and some creative play in their attacking third allowed them to unlock the Turkish defense as if it were a beat up car and they were the shiny new clothes hanger reaching through the gap in the window to get you in. Portugal...

Portugal’s Greek hoodoo continues!

Georgios Karagounis scored two free-kicks for European champions Greece to ensure Otto Rehhagel’s side overcame Portugal for the third time in as many meetings. I’m allowed to take the free-kicks with the national team. I don’t get to take them at Panathinaikos.” I think it’s hilarious that in his international career, Karagounis has only scored...
