    If you're not watching Portugal-Spain, you're missing a hell of a game.

    I had the... delightful... opportunity to watch the Netherlands vs. Turkey instead. It was dire.

    That was some performance. Congrats to Portugal. You guys look terrifyingly strong.

    It's looking much, much better than under Queiroz but it's still early to say we're "terrifyingly strong".

    We also missed Nani terribly during the world cup. He's not the sharpest tool in the shed (see Ronaldo's disallowed wonder 'goal' but he's definitely a handful for defenders. We had no plan B to Ronaldo in the WC.

    The Danish newspapers were certainly scared. I've only seen the goals.

    Nani at his best is a good player. However, he can be very poor too. Yeah, the wonder 'goal' was weird. How did he explain it afterward?
