Portugal 1 - Holland 0

What an ugly and painful match to watch and, I imagine, to be a part of. Never had so many cards been shown in a single World Cup match before. The referee, Valentin Ivanov, must have been out of his wits to show some of those cards and he really let things get out of control. Both Portugal and Holland showed a considerable lack of sportsmanship and, in the end, we were all just glad extra time wasn't needed after the usual 90 and some minutes duration of the match.
Such bitter disappointment at Luis Figo for his head-knocking attitude; he is usually quite the gentleman.
I sincerely hope Portugal behaves better against England next Saturday and that the referee is, at least, sane.
