Why was he left out of the starting eleven against Poland? Was he blamed for the loss? Did Oliveira forget that Portugal did NOTHING aganist the usa when he subbed Rui Costa?

Anyway, it turned out alright in the end. Rui Costa was at the beginning of all the attacks in the second halve and Portugal finally took advantage of the horrendous Polish defending.

so far...

Portugal without Rui, 1 goal in 80 minutes
Portugal with Rui, 5 goals in 100 minutes

Something is up with Rui Costa. I'll give AO the benefit of the doubt on this one.
Rui was a bit off against the US, but Rui Costa is an untouchable. If he is fit, he is in the lineup. This is why I have to assume this has to do with lingering effects of an injury-filled year.

Rui will be huge for us if we are to keep playing after Friday, you can bet on that.
