Portugal coach fired after World Cup flop

June 25, 2002

LISBON, Portugal (AP) -- Antonio Oliveira will be replaced as coach of Portugal's national team after the country's dismal performance in the World Cup, the head of the Portuguese Soccer Federation announced Tuesday. ADVERTISEMENT


``The federation's decision is that he cannot continue'' in the job, federation chief Gilberto Madail said.

Oliveira was out of the country Tuesday but Madail said the federation sent him a fax proposing an amicable agreement to end his contract, which expires in 2004.

Portugal, which entered the World Cup ranked No. 5 in the world, failed to advance past the first round after losses to South Korea and the United States.

Oliveira, 50, took over two years ago and guided Portugal through its undefeated World Cup qualifying campaign.

In a previous stint as national coach, between 1994-96, he led the side to the quarterfinals of Euro 96.

He has recorded the most wins for a Portuguese national coach (26) and the most games (43).

Good, now vai por caralho, sacana Oliveira
:mad: :fero:

YES!YES!YES!YES!YES! HELL YES! WHAT NOW MUTHA ****A!!!!! This is close to the feeling I was saving up if Portugal won the World Cup, but Oliveira being fired is a dream come true. Now the FPF better not **** up like they did with Artur Jorge, Coelho(not talking new contract to him), Oliveira(enough said).

It was about time those guys would do something decent.
Other coach would have the decency to walk out, but not our beloved Oliveirinha:yuck:

Who's it going to be?

Robson, Hiddink, Quieroz, Artur Jorge, Mourinho, Pacheco, or maybe......Eusebio.......?

Let the speculation begin....

I think the players really want Quieroz. But its up to the FPF, I just want them to make a good decision. Oliveira looked to be a good coach during qualification but he began really slacking off days before the World Cup and during the World Cup. I think he took the World Cup as a free vacation for him.
