Now this gets good...


Halftime: Portugal 1 - Netherlands 0 --- Portugal 10 Players, Netherlands 11

The Dutch have solved the Costinha problem (red card) and the Cristiano Ronaldo problem (mauled out of the game by successive, near-criminal tackles.)

Now it's 10 on 11. Van Nistelrooy is on the bench. Anything at all could happen.

Addendum
The official match report is now available and the Portuguese stole EIGHT minutes from the Dutch! The effective time of play for the whole match was just 52 minutes - 8 less than the usual!

Hup hup for Finland!
Let's hope the Portuguese don't try to pull of the ole ten man lockdown immediately in the second half. I don't think they will, though.
