Portugal 2 Iran 0

Portugal had not gone past the World Cup group stages since 1966, when it went on to a semi-final defeat at Wembley. Now, it is once again in the knockout stages.
It was a good match - a little on the rough side - with two great goals by Deco and Cristiano Ronaldo and 14 corner kicks awarded to Portugal! I thought Figo was in great form (but that kick to his face must have really hurt a lot) and Luiz Felipe Scolari...well, Scolari with his outbursts and expressions adds a very entertaining dimension to the game (what a contrast with cool Sven Goran-Eriksson!). Scolari is great and he seems to know what he's doing.

Not much of football fever here. The only thing that unites people in India is Cricket.

You're right, Iznogood: I did "list" Ana with a football scarf. That's as far as my football Ana Lysis goes.
