      Please tell me your kidding? Your comparing a local cricket game to a international tournament of epic proportions. As a Bermudian I’m jealous. I’m currently in college overseas and if I told my friends about this cricked game they would see it as a Sports day between two schools. lol

      Sunday I plan on seeing Christina Ronaldo whimper on the field. Portugal taking at least 4 from whoever the get in the finals.
      Congrats they finally won their first 90minute game since the start of the tournament

      • Bald & The Beauty Full says:

        Get over it Bob the Builder. Playing longer than 90 mins just means they had to play longer and work harder than the others that breezed through. If he sheds his tears it is because he has worked incredibly hard to attain a goal for his country.

        What have you and others like Onion juice done to make Bermudians proud. All I ever see you guys post is negative crap.

        My mum was right! There really is an a$$ born every minute

    • Adkin says:

      Portugal is one of Europe’s smallest nations. If I was Portuguese I would have been proud just for making to the top 4 teams or even to qualify to the tournament. To be in the top 2 against France 65 million people and Germany 80 million and they can wave their flag, since their national anthem in front of millions and millions of people is something I would die to see Bermuda achieve. Even more for Portugal is they have the most famous sports stars in the world and a coach that is considered one of the Best and maybe the most famous coaches.

      Portuguese have a one the strongest and richest tradition and culture in the world. They should be proud of themselves.

        u finish sucking on ya sagres yet???

        portugal maybe small in size but not in football terms, they have qualified for every major international tournament for the last two decades, so this is not no achievement for them to qualify. them making it to the last four is something they’ve done in the quite alot in the last few tournaments also, jus be happy that they are inthe final, and don’t try to make it seem bigger then it is.

        i’m not hating, but i had to clear up your untrue statement.

    • Bald & The Beauty Full says:

      So what???? it was a great accomplishment to make it this far, and I might even agree that given the play during the first few games – the maybe shouldn’t even be there. But they are – and I hope they win. I was hoping for Portugal, Iceland,or Wales to take it all.

  5. Adkin says:

    Good Job Portugal. For a tiny nation you have a lot to be proud off. I read that in the past 7 Euro Tournaments you have made it to the semi-Finals 5 times. WOW, England must be jealous.

  6. LOVE says:

    Congrats to Portugal and her people! I don’t know why some find the need to come on here and be negative about a topic like this. There are many Bermudians who are celebrating with you. As you say, Forca Portugal!!!!
