Few, including me, thought they'd get as far as they did, so this tournament can't be seen as a failure. But they could have gone for it a bit more in the quarter-final against Portunaldo or Ronaltugal, I can't decide which is the best, probably the former.
Rosicky out injured for the QF won't have helped, him being captain and their most creative player. But as I said at the start of all this, any team that has Baros as their striker is going to struggle and ain't gonna win diddly.
And so it proved.
