Third Place Play-Off: Germany 2-4 Portugal

As ever, the game that meant nothing produced the most excitement. The Germans looked crestfallen, expecting to be playing in Sunday's big finale, the showpiece, not this pointless support act.

But the entertainment value was high, the Portuguese playing with a freedom they hadn't when they had a chance to win it. The half-time show by that super group was certainly a highlight, and the trial run of goal-line technology certainly didn't slow up the game as many feared it might.

As for the streakers, well, the one who shat himself will never live it down. That could well be YouTube's most viewed clip in a few month's time.

If the final is anywhere near as entertaining as this, then we're all in for a treat.
