Just imagine Zidane missed Figo ran back on the pitch and pumped in the best goal ever.Figo did the right thing people will notice how we were cheated out of a competition again wait for 2002.
I hope Inacio takes the job , but i doubt it.
Hardly cheated out of it. It was a peno fair and square. Look at Baia when it happened. He immediatley started pleading not to give a penalty cos he saw it straight away. Just a ****ty way to go out thats all. I reckon there will be Eufa action cos at one stage the linesman was obout to be head butted and the ref was being grabbed by all and sundry. I reckon the Portuguese federation will be given a fine and no more than that.
There's no bigger Figo fan than me, but I think his walking off the field was the wrong thing to do. I understand the emotion and frustration he was feeling, but Baia had already saved one penalty vs. Turkey. What if Zidane had missed? It happens! That's why they make them take the kicks instead of just awarding them the goal! Look at Holland yesterday, missing two during regular time (never mind blowing a couple more in the PK session). Although it's a team, Figo is the leader; and I think it showed poor sportsmanship to the rest of the world.
I'm still proud of the team, though.
