From the other thread:
I hope Portugal win this and go on to win the final too and that isn't because i dislike Spain. I know many find Spain boring but their technical brilliance is just amazing. They intentionally do what every other football team complains about - compress space, and still dominate.
I have never really like Ronaldo but it would be senseless to deny that he will go down as one of the game's greatest ever players and rightly so.
It will be unfortunate if he were to retire without an international trophy. This may be his best chance.
