Portugal 3 – 1 Czech Republic
(Deco 8, Ronaldo 63, Quaresma 90) (Sionko 17)
Here are my thoughts from the match
- Cristiano Ronaldo is in top form. Scoring one and creating another. If he plays like this, Portugal can surely win the tournament
- The Czechs should be happy with there display. The nearly matched the Portuguese but were let down due to there poor finishing
- The score line is harsh on the Czechs.
- Portugal do have some defensive weakness which was exploited by the Czechs. They need to work on that or they might lose in the latter stages
- Portuguese manager Scolari was named as the Chelsea boss during the Switzerland Turkey match. Can it effect the morale of the squad ?
