Teams: SPORTING CP & Portugal NT
1-0 for Everton at HT
A very good first half from us with speed, grit and concentration - everything that was so far from this team during the last month or so. Unfortunately the score is not translating what happened on the pitch but I don't think it's possible to demand more from the team than what they've managed. Izmailov was brilliant closely followed by Matías.
Let's hope we can at least score a goal as that can become crucial in this tie.
