EURO 2012 LIVE: Portugal 0, Spain 0
Question of the Day
2215: Ronaldo gets a free kick outside the box but his shot sails over the bar.
2206: Given time and room, the Spanish look elegant and unbeatable. Squeezed and harried, they suddenly look ordinary. Their midfield is getting no space. Pereira is Portugal’s third defender to be booked when he stops Fabregas on the edge of the box with a shirt pull. But the ensuing free kick goes nowhere.
2204: Busquets booked for asking the ref to give Ronaldo a yellow card when the Portuguese star went down rather too easily in the area. Pepe goes into the book a few moments later. The ref is trying to assert himself. These two teams seem more than happy to kick chunks out of each other.
2201: Portugal really taking the game to Spain. They’re not hitting the target but are throwing everything at Spain here. When will the Spanish come out of their shell? They’re not managing to express themselves in the usual way.
2153: Portugal again playing brightly and with no fear. They’re showing the Spanish little respect. Is it so difficult for other teams to learn this is how to win, even against mighty sides like Spain? Portugal pressing high, squeezing Spain. But Portugal cannot relax for one moment.
2150: The second half’s underway. No change to either side.
2135: You feel Del Bosque has to make some changes and consider Torres or Fabregas for the second half. The Spanish aren’t themselves tonight; the Portuguese are playing well and proving hard to break down. Ronaldo has been in and out of the game, though. Yet to live up to his performances in recent matches.
