    Why does everyone hate Ronaldo? Well for me it's because, as a good friend of mine would say, he has a "crap face". Also he's a cheating ****** and used to wear an earring and that stupid little blonde thing in his hair. I've never gotten over how idiotic that looked.

    If the situation was reversed and Ronaldo was the one who did the whole kicking in the *******s thing and then pushed Rooney they'd be even more mad at Ronaldo and be hailing Rooney as some poor innocent saint. We were never going to win. Portugal are just plain better.
    They weren't in this match, infact they played very poorly against a team with only 10 players.

    you dont expect a lot of players to easily get used to the team. .. maybe that was the case of hargreaves as he finally found himself in the team...

    ive always said to myself that hargreaves is one of those people who has extra edge because they have more passion and they work harder for the team.

    in the end, he was the only one who scored a penalty.. even the great gerrard and lampard failed

    I agree that we wouldn't have won anyway but I don't believe Portugal were a better side. They had chances and squandered them. They had a one man advantage and couldn't break us. Plus, pens are a lottery so you can't even really put it down to that.

    the ref sent him off for the push and not the standing on the *******s and anyway the ref was harsh for sending him off for that. im a ref and i wouldnt have sent him off a yellow and a talking to would b it. Anyway rooney would have got himself sent off later on he was bound to lose it again

    Yeah, it's a harsh red but in fairness, players have been sent off for less in this competition. The disciplinary procedure has been an absolute joke. If you compare Rooney's nudging (RED) to Figo's headbutting (YELLOW) I think you can see the whole thing is full of holes.

    Well England weren't winning before Rooney got a red were they. And it was the penalty shoot outs that won the game for Portugal and the whole 10 player thing wasn't really an issue was it?

    Why because my opinion differs from your one? Or because you can't think of anything to say back in defence????

    They were good at penalties but the point I'm trying to make is that their overall game play today was complete and utter rubbish. England were clearly the better team during the second half and extra time. There is no way that Portugal were 'plain better', they couldn't win against a team of 10 England players! And that is very suprising considering they're meant to be a very good team.

    People are just looking for a scapegoat and he is an easy target. It should be people like Sven for his moronic tactics and consistently standing by players like Lampard that unperformed

    Well I'll agree that Portugal weren't at the best. At all. Your saying they are Rubbish??? Maybe. But England still couldn't get a goal past could they? So what does that make them (I'm talking pre Rooneys violent outburst here)??? And Portugal are the better team. Today when they were 'rubbish' they still won.

    Uhhh, no! Portugal could not even beat 10 man england, and never looked likely to do so. Portugal did not play that great and were not plain better!
