Nuno Assis' suspension does include friendly games? If that's the case, someone please give me his phone number, there's a team here in Leipzig he can play at and nobody cares about this stupid suspension.
Apart from this I'm not happy about Benfica playing in that crappy tournament, the sportive value is somewhere around zero if not we strictly play our substitutes and young guns to get them some match-practice. João Coimbra and Nico Canales are on my wishlist for the starting line-up. Well and Moretto with his entertainer-qualities might serve well in such a compatition.
Hope it's lucrative, but then again I bet so.

Wow, boring so far. You can tell it's a friendly tournament right when you turn the TV on.

FT
0-0

We went through to the final by beating Bayern in the penalty kicks 4-3. Moretto saved two, and Beto missed for Benfica, while Luisão, Karagounis, Mantorras and Marco Ferreira scored.

We will face Lazio in the tournament final, wednesday the 10th, at 19.45 GMT, I think.

Benfica played with: Moretto; Nélson, Luisão, Ricardo Rocha (Anderson at HT), Miguelito; Beto, Katsouranis (Karagounis in the second half), Karyaka (João Coimbra, 75m); Simão (Paulo Jorge, HT), Nuno Gomes (Mantorras, HT), Manu (Marco Ferreira, 82m).
