This is more like it. Proper tournament football. Namely cagey, defensive, and generally dull.
The Portuguese came for a point and nearly got it. The Germans showed more attacking prowess and were eventually rewarded. But the biggest question this game threw up is: what were the balls of scrunched up white paper all about?
German fans chucked these at Portugal players taking corners. Was it the German gameplan getting thrown out as frustration grew the longer it stayed 0-0? It was just pathetic and embarrassing. Faceless dicks in the crowd trying to get someone to pay their worthless little lives some attention.
And who takes foolscap to football these days? Fucking pack a vuvuzela instead.
