I agree - Portugal gave Spain the most problems. But, I'm not sure I can say Portugal should have won - especially with 2 days of extra rest, they should have caused even more problems. When OTs came around, Spain was the attacker and looked like scoring a goal. Of course, I'm biased towards Spain - but IMO the better team won in the Semis.
We were lacking a "#10" (Danny) and a quality striker, which as always been a problem area for us since Pauleta left. but he was a small time player anyways always disappeared in the big games.
I agree that Spain deserved to go through because their quality of chances they took were better and when we had ours we wasted them in the worst way lol Every damn shot was in the 20th row of the fans.
Nelson Oliveira is still too young and Postiga/Almeida are backups at best.
Im hoping that Ricardo Vaz Te from West Ham United keeps up his current from that helped the hammers into the EPL keeps it up cause he already looks like Portugal's best striker.
