Refereeing was very poor! Palhinha should have been sent off. Sanches was good.... Portugal playing 3 defensive midfielders was a mistake. Ronaldo was also poor as was his attitude. Belgium should be out next round. Italy should prove much too strong especially on the wings
@drewisdrew How is Italy so much better than Portugal? They struggled against Austria. Much will depend on whether Debruyne and Hazard are fit.
@Gronounours Portugal struggled against Hungary, a far weaker side than Austria (most of the Austrians play in the Bundesliga).
@baia Hungary drew with Germany and France
@BSN Austria is still qualitatively better (Sabitzer alone is worth more than the whole Hungarian midfield). My point was: pretty much every top team struggled against a well organized side.
R.I.P. john2james and your 10 other accounts.
LOL Courtois has one successful dribble! how did he do it?
@GioMonaldo After the goal, that was Belgium's most impressive offensive move!
@GioMonaldo dribbled Pendu LOL
The ego has floundered…
So far so good but I am afraid Belgium may not be lucky against the Italians on Friday.
@Centino75 Obviously not. They lost KDB.
No penalty no party, no Eder, no party, no CR injury no party, biggest statspadder, biggest cheerleader, and biggest looser i've ever seen in internationl football, what a complete joke this man is. 17 KO matches 3 goals and 3 assists, no goal or assist in WC knock-out stages, no goal and no assist in last do or die matches, and Portugal KO's every single time, except when the goat cheerleadin near the lines.
@Pastore10 Calm down and grow up, this is just football.
Too bad, Portugal showed a good game and tried everything to score. Belgium had basically no real scoring chance but wins 1-0.
@neumi17 Portugal wasn't very good, but Belgium was painful to watch. And I say that as a Belgian.
@neumi17 So what? The Portuguese played like thugs and shattered the ankle of Belgium's best player!
@neumi17 for Euro16 Portugal deserve to lose every singe time SO, luckiest win ever
Ronaldo crying lol
@nexus747 no penalty shot, serious reason
Portugal have to be the dirtiest team in Europe. Stamping on players ankles. Cynical foul after cynical foul. Rotational fouling, holding, extreme gamesmanship.
I'm glad they were dumped out. Hopefully HAZARD and KDB are back for the QF's.
Any team watching this match will be happy to face Belgium. They simply cannot hold on to the ball. Lucky to get through.
@tinyclaw Not without KDB, no. Why did he leave the pitch again? That's right.
i wouldn't say Belgium got lucky here but Portugal was so unlucky in this tournament.
@BSN They're thugs. Belgium unlucky they had to play against them. It ruined their tournament.
@BSN Belgium unlucky for losing their best midfielder and the once great Eden ruining his career in Madrid. Portugal played with all their highly rated players and still couldn't score. Portugal were simply overrated, they have great individuals but are no great team. Beating Luxembourg and Hungary are not great achievements and drawing with France is not good enough.
@BSN why? The France penalty? They were poor against Germany and lucky themselves against Hungary I thought.
screw these comments as a neutral im having a blast
This match is completely one sided. Belgium made like 2 shots and is winning and wasting time since the beginning of the 2nd half lol
@hellreaper So what? The Portuguese played like thugs and shattered the ankle of Belgium's best player!
Portugal apart from Renato and Ronaldo are so average
This game i watch this year and its the most boring by far.
And Éder is not there.
@alex_74 is the BEST for Portugal till now
Probably the most boring game I’ve seen in this Euro
Everyones backing goals so it will be 0-0 lol
A very unpredictable match. I don't even know what kind of bet to make
@Valerian Then don't bet lol.
What ?? Vermaelen still plays??
@falcon_ranger He was good!
How many penalties will UEFA gift Penaldo to try and boost his stats and see Portugal through when they don't deserve it, yet again?
@1974cruyff I didn't see the penalty they were awarded against Hungary, but I thought the 2 against France were both correct decisions.
The bet value is in the penalty and corners.
Didn't know whot to bet so i have parlayed
Netherlands to win and over 2.5 into Belgium to qualify for the next round and penaldo + lukau to score
$50 TO WIN 1K
@angelo44 With your luck, Portugal is winning and no goals for Ronaldo, Lukaku.
2-2 or 3-2 for belgium
The only thing that can be said about this game is that there's no clear favourite. But people can't help it: they're unable to acknowledge they don't know and can't predict the future. That's why bookies make a killing, and the lower classes loose what little money they have.
@Gronounours I predicted a Belgium win and I don’t gamble and so kept my money. Unlike you and your predictions - you lost your credibility…
@Gronounours Jesusssss...you're so smart!
Are you sure you're not a reptilian?
@Gronounours that's me :( :(
Finally this is a game where we could have penalties after a thrilling 90min(& 2×15min) of play where the score easily can be 2-2 of 0-0!
portugal are value here.?
Only decent team belgium played was denmark who had 20 shots to 6 .
Finally a consequential match. 3-2
This game is in Seville.
Penaldo or Penandes to score.
@Rensen How old are you?
Over 2.5 match goals from 2 very attacking sides.
Good prediction. I expect a 2-1 Portugal wins too. It'll bem another excellent game and Portugal counters will destroy the belgian team.
You guys have all differenent predictions! Just admit it: you have no clue.
I want Belgium to win the tournament, but with Portugal, Italy, France, and Germany/England on their way, they would need a lot of luck to make it.
"Portugal drew 2-2 with France on Wednesday to secure second spot in the group of death, courtesy of Germany drawing 2-2 with Hungary."
Portugal came in third due to inferior H2H result against Germany.
@gumimaci @gumimaci Portugal Drew with France was a courtesy of the referee
