What to say? The performance of Portugal was dissapointing. Eduardo saved the team from an ashaming defeat.

His performance didn't excape the notice of fans and press. He was given the biggest applaud when the team come back to Portugal. It's almost certain he is going to move this summer, perhaps to a big club. I hope he is not going to waste his chance as Ricardo did after World Cup 2006.

Page PortuGoal named Eduardo a man of the match.

"There can be no doubts as to the PortuGOAL man of the match – Eduardo – who kept the Spaniards at bay for over an hour with a series of breathtaking saves."

Eduardo: 9.5/10 PortuGOAL man of the match
"A cat-like leap to turn a Fernando Torres shot round the post in the first minute set the tone as Eduardo proved an almost impregnable shield against the incessant Spanish attack. Further superb saves in the 3rd, 6th, 60th, 69th, and 76th minutes kept Portugal in the game, and as a disconsolate Eduardo left the pitch bathed in tears one could not help feeling the Braga man deserved a better supporting cast."


More quotes:

"I think Eduardo was the man of the match. He was very good. He provide the team with a feeling of security and gave them hope. He made a great show, but everyone played well."

- Ricardo, the former goalkeeper of Selecção, a commentator at Maisfutebol

"Eduardo kept the team in the fight for most of the time; he was just unfortunately that the rebound from him fell to a Spanish player"

"Eduardo gave us a brilliant performance"


– Carlos Queiroz, the coach

"Eduardo, was very assured, and did not deserve this defeat."

It's my last note at Força Selecção, at least for the time being. Visit http://goalkeepersarecrazy.blogspot.com for updates about Selecção and Portuguese goalkeepers.

We did expect something more from this match, didn't we?



Portugal qualified to 1/8 finale but now is going to face Spain. I've bad feelings.

Nevertheless the match is a good reason for picspaming.



"Now let's have a drink."

Portugal clashed North Korea 7-0. After the 0-0 draw with Ivory Coast they had to win the game and score as much goals as possible, but nobody did expect such high result. Portugal dominated the second half completely after surprisingly even the first half. North Korea played an offensive game and paid for it severly.

At Friday Selecção is going to face Brazil. This is going to be a real challenge.

A 0-0 draw was not something which we did expect from Portugal at World Cup, did we? What do you think about Portugal performance?



It must be better in the next match!

Both those Champions League matches were a while ago and for sure the final result is not satisfying for Porto fans but still it's an occasion for picspamming.

At Sunday 21 Mar 2010 Benfica won with FC Porto 3:0 in the Taça da Liga final. They defended the title and won Calsberg Cup second time in the row!
