Woke up late and only got the game on. Can't believe that this isn't 0-0. Throws a whole new dimension into the group. Poland need to pull through today then to keep hope alive.
I agree that Portugal's midfield is solid, but there's no transitional player who can take the ball and make some space. At this rate, I'm not totally opposed to having Oliveira at RW, Nani on the left, and Ronaldo as a deeper lying striker (so as to have space to turn and run at the defense). I know it was really ineffective to have him at point during WC2010, but he's been on fire form-wise this last season. Get him up top, get him the ball close to the box. Let him kick it.
SHA - would be fantastically bad to see violence errupt w/ a Russian beat down of the hosts today. Memorable, but no one wants to see that.
I think Schevchenko has more goals in him for the tournament. It's his sendoff, the only time in front of his home fans in an international tournament. Ukraine pulls off one upset, and they've won the group.
