Was about to say that I didn't know what the deal was with him, good athlete but has looked extremely raw, misplaced some straightforward passes. Only young, though.

If that were possible. Has either side had a shot on target?

Did Quaresma murder anyone? Because if you sport those tatooed tears but haven't done the crime, in a lot of neighborhoods here you've got a decent chance of getting done.

Was that goal mouth action? took 116 minutes.

And Portugal go and score at the other end. Ron will be pissed it wasn't him

0 wins in 90 minutes and into the QF.

Croatia were still the better side, but haven't taken their chances.

Vida had some chances, but he's a defender and was unlucky with a couple of them. I actually thought he was the best player on the pitch tonight.

And people moan about England? At least our lot make an attempt at winning the game. Pathetic stuff from today's games and an awful tournament in general

Surely and hopefully with Croatia out, your lot will get it together...

What an opportunity for Belgium...
