Individuality does not get you trophies, eternal disappointment is what it feels to be Portuguese.

Cristiano Ronaldo is a talented footballer, there's no denying that. However, there's just something about him I can't stand, and it's not just that he's a United player (of course that factors in a lot to my baseless club bias against him), but there are other things that just can't make me like him.

OK, disregard my opinion above since it's biased anyway, let's put things into a fairer perspective. My old man's a lifelong United supporter who often teases me, and even he sensed something about Ronaldo that he can't stand at times. Like the dad trying his best to tolerate the antics of his arrogant but genius son.



Take this interview for example, right after last night's Portugal defeat to Germany:

http://www.guillembalague.com/interview_desp.php?id=10


Especially this line:
Quote:
Guillem: The little details were won by Germany. You didn’t seem concentrated enough

Ronaldo: I didn’t do anything wrong. I did what I had to do but the team made mistakes and that is why we lost
Course you didn't do anything wrong, but to go out and lash your teammates openly without sharing responsibility, I mean, what the hell?

To be fair, he's still not yet completely grown up. I guess I was just as immature when I was his age (everyone gasps at Kinny's senility). But anyway, let's just say if he matures more in the next few years, perhaps I might dislike him less, just like how I'm actually beginning to respect Van Nistelrooy, albeit begrudgingly.

Boring first half, a couple of chances on both sides and that's about it. Almost dozed off

The thing about C.Ronaldo every time they zoom in into his face I just want to punch it, it just bugs me. Its the same with Nani.

And his comment, awful really but as I said Portugal national team and its players have always been plagued by individuality, comment like these prove it.

Whoever lose, thanks for the intense match!

Wow what a tragic match. Only the turks can score the equalizer in the 122nd minute, only the Turks...

Said it before, Czech's luck is with Turkey....Now that Portugal is gone, they are the sole receiver for that premium luck. And Rustu was great, despite being a sub, he saved a lot.

Either Croatians cant aim the goalpost, either Allah (no offense meant) is the second goalkeeper.

I think it is just the Turkish side having the better goalkeeper, and the Croatian side having the worse shooters, of the night (as a note, I am glad that Terim didn't allow Nihat to meet the Baggio fate).

Now, I wonder if Turkey will be able to successfully come behind against the Germans too (at this point, it is more like a given, that Turkey will fall behind). It would have been great if that game were to be played in Germany.

Boring match but those final three minutes... unbelievable. Equalizing in the last second of the match, it almost seems like a miracle.

Imagine what it would be like in Turkey. I am sure thousands of people were out there with holding guns and shooting them at the air (some are that crazy, unfortunately).

Croatia really missed Dudu ;_;

How many easy chance did they squandered off that can totally shut off Turkey in the normal time.. >_<

Gratz for the Turkeys

Why is it I always sleep through the best matches!?

Wow, watched the highlights, before the whole 90+28 minutes was dull, but the last 2 minutes was just pure drama. Only the Turks can do it, first they score in the last minute to finish off the Swiss, then they came back 2-0 from the dead to beat the Czechs 3-2, and now this.

Credit must be given to Turkey's stand-in veteran keeper Rustu. After saving the last penalty, the first thing he did was actually go up to console the Croatian player that he saved from instead of celebrating with his teammates. Afterwards, he went to console the other Croatian players, sportsmanship befitting of a seasoned-veteran.

So it shall be Germany, 2006 World Cup 3rd place vs Turkey, 2002 World Cup 3rd place.


Hopefully tonight's match between Netherlands and Russia should be an attacking display. The Hiddink factor will weigh heavily, so the Russians might fancy a chance.
