There's a victory in this. The world now knows how well the Portuguese team can play. It took a cheap hand ball penalty to beat us and it was the reigning World Champions no less. There's no shame in this loss, only regret. I still say we can be a huge force in WC 2002!!!

I am very proud to have such great men representing my nation.

No matter how good or how bad … PORTUGAL always and forever…
I am glad we showed the world what soccer is all about… Too bad we didn’t go all the way. But we will keep fighting…

Viva Portugal…

Yeah,they are the best.They did it great.
During this time everybody i met on the internet,and i´m not talking about soccer sites,when i say i´m from PORTUGAL everybody mention their great performances,they were and are what first comes to other people´s mind when it´s about Portugal.And that is something i feel very deep.


You are the best.Losing like this only proved we were at the WC level and there was no other way to stop us,but this way.Only feels very unfair,but you really are the best.
I love you,thanks for what you guys did.I´m prouder than never.

Greeting Portugese fans! I'm a brand new fan of your national team and after yesterday's game I just wanted to come here and make myself known.

I picked Portugal as my underdog team before Euro 2000 started b/c I am a big fan of Rui Costa. I'm not getting the games live but I am following everything on the Web, and also listening on the Web to games. It didn't take long for the Portugese squad to capture my imagination! As much as I can I plan to continue to follow some of these players...Baia, Gomes and others.

Anyway, what I wanted to say was this: Be proud of these guys! They grabbed the world's attention with some extremely attractive soccer skills. They reached the semis and played their hearts out; that's alot better than some of the favored teams like England(I can hardly wait to get a tape of that 3-2 win!!) or Germany.

You guys keep playing like that and you should be fine =)

How long had this coach been at the helm? Are people surprised by him quitting?

Although most of you really seem to be sad of Portugal´s loss, you behave really cool - no one´s arguing of the penalty decision here. That´s real sportsmanship! I really appreciate the way you´re celebrating the players - you can be proud of the way Portugal presented itself in this tournament. I hope the story continues in two years :)
