From BBC sport:

The top two qualify for the quarter-finals.
Russia now cannot qualify.


Group A situation explained



If Greece avoid defeat against Russia, they will qualify for the quarter-finals.
If Spain avoid defeat against Portugal, they will qualify for the quarter-finals.
Portugal must beat Spain to reach the quarter-finals.
Russia have already been eliminated.
If Spain lose against Portugal, they can only reach the quarter-finals if Russia beat Greece by a greater margin than Spain lose to Portugal OR if the goal difference is equal (between Spain and Greece) and Spain have scored the same or greater number of goals in all three group matches as Greece.
If Greece lose to Russia, they will only be eliminated if Portugal beat Spain by a smaller margin than Greece lose to Russia OR if the goal difference is equal (between Spain and Greece) and Spain have scored the same or greater number of goals in all three group matches as Greece.
Ok that just completely confused me! Was I right? It is still possible for Greece NOT to get through?

In any group, if 2 teams are level on points, the 1st thing which is looked at is the results between the 2 teams. If the result was a draw, then the goal difference is reviewed.

I thought that Russia put up a very good fight in the 2nd half. Quite often, teams who go one player down play better. Portugal have got to play better if they want to go far. Ronaldo played really well when he came on. The Spain-Portugal encounter will be very interesting.

yeah but figo is really good, maybe ronaldo gets tired quickly and so the coach puts him in at the end when figo gets tired?

maybe..some players give a better burst after sub, but in the premiership, ronaldo seems ok to play a full match. Portugal's tactic of bringing ronaldo in has played well, esp in hot climates, it is impossible to play the original starting lineup throughout the match within using subs during match

No player is so good they can't be replaced on bad form surely? And Ronaldo does survive Premiership matches, probably the most exhausting league in the world. I'm amazed how Frank Lampard can cope with it, Figo shouldn't complain.
