Aah Finally... Khaadu, i think the jinx is broken ....
the Portugese just didnt deserve to win this match, the way they played... Figo...Portugal...Bye Bye..
France-Italy finals... think France will win this time...
Exit for Portugal, sadness for me!
I loved the way they kept attacking till the end with even Ricardo taking his chances in the French penalty area. I guess it was just a case of missed chances for Portugal and Zizu's penalty made the difference. Christiano Ronaldo needed more support up front. The fellow was a livewire trying to play in almost every position possible.
Even though Barthez had me in splits with his actions from time to time, I must say, the French defence was well up to the task. The final will definitely be worth watching.
with 60% ball possession and that too mostly in France Half, Portugal dominated the game but finally what matters is a Goal.
France defended well.
Pity that despite some good run from C. Ronaldo, Portugal were not able to break france defence.
I was really happy to see Figo making good moves at this Age.
& C. Ronaldo seems to be a big name in coming years. Just wondering why he was boooooed by spectators every time he had possesion
