    Well' over the 90mins, Portugal were the better side, I can't understand Sven's tactics of playing so deep. Ashley Cole, Sol Campbell and Gary Neville, did NOT deserve to be on the losing side.

    Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and David Beckham all were out of sorts, the refs decision to disallow Sol's goal was a disgrace.

    I believe if Portugal had scored first we would of won, the game was very reminiscent to the France match. We score then spend the best part of the match walking a defensive tight rope, sitting back and playing defensively even made a poor Portuguese side look good.

    Why did Sven have flair player like Joe Cole and Kieron Dyer in the squad if he wasn't going to play them. From the kick off Beckham and Gerrard looked physically knackered, to be honest they both have had a poor tournament, which might be good news for Liverpool fans. As who would buy Gerrard on his Euro 2004 performances.

    Well only 2 years to the next penalty shoot out. :(
