    Not sure why Spain are accused of being boring when everybody else lines up against them with a flat back ten. No doubt Portugal will try and do the same and hope their wide players can catch the Spanish on the break.
    When Rangers played Barca a few years ago we 'parked the bus' and astonishingly earned a 0-0 (they horsed us in the away league but such is life). We we're slated for using 'disgraceful' tactics by pundits and the media, in spite of having a team costing less than John Terry spends on lawyers. Now it seems it's just accepted if you're playing Barca or Spain you shut up shop, pack your own area and try and snaffle something on the break, no matter how apparently talented (and expensively assembled if it's a club) your own team is.

    In the various reports, Portugal are "claiming" they want to play an open game against the Spanish, retaining possession themselves, etc. Not sure how much I buy into that, but agree that I want a Portuguese upset.

    Spain has won trophies and Portugal none...

    Even if I hate Ronaldo , I would like to see in the final.

    I'm also bored by the Barcelona style of play...

    It is interesting with Messi and with him only.

    Well, I cant imagine Spain/Portugal game going scoreless for the full 90 minutes... especially at the current pace.

    Portugal showing some real quality. Very impressive making Spain look uncomfortable.

    Yeah - that advantage not given to Nani was ridiculous.
