Teams: Portugal, Sporting
What an excellent first half. As I expected, hard fought, but for Portuguese football still a pretty clean game. JVP is playing very well and starting to click with Jardel. Quaresma is a joy to watch but he makes mistakes that clearly stem from his lack of experience. He dekes out 4 guys just to get to the front of the net without any ideas about what to do next. Amazing ability that will be much more dangerous once it's tempered with some exp
Ricardo's save of Sporting's last minute attack was beautiful. Damn I wish I could watch this whole thing. I'll be listening to the last 30 minutes in the car.
