Re: 2018 WORLD CUP - Portugal v Spain. 7pm

A great game of football between Portugal and Spain. Spain probably paid the price of trying to close the game out to early. Very risky at this level when only a goal up, especially with Ronaldo in the opposing team. Brilliant free-kick to earn Portugal a point.

There I was at my MAC hitting Cmd-Shift-3 to take snapshots of the action between Portugal and Spain
Here are the results as a photo montage. If you hate the Cliff Richard look a like avoid this.
Scottish Steel and Irish Fire that's the weapon I desire.

A fabulous advert for world soccer - I was on my feet for much of the game.
Those who say Messi is the best need to look at Ronaldo and how he single-handedly took a game by the scruff of the neck and came back against perhaps the best team of the last 10 years.

The Aussies almost take a shock lead but for the French keeper makes fine low save

I think I'd take Leckie off, one more foul and he'll be gone.
France had a lot of possession but done nothing with it, Aussie back 4 have done very well, Moy been good too.

Half chances aplenty for France but we've defended well - especially Sainsbury. Had a couple of half chances ourselves.

France's wasn't a pen, if they going to give that, we'll be seeing plenty of penalties.

So near, yet so far. Battled hard but there was a difference in quality and unfortunately they created one chance too many for us,

Wonderful dive for the first...nobody sells a fall for a pen or FK like RC.
BPF - Beradi - Jansson - Forshaw - Cooper - Douglas - Hernandez - Klich - Saiz - Roofe - Clarke

"objective fan" - is that a consistent oxymoron?"

Didn't look a penalty to me after I saw the replay which is the same as VAR

France got away with that victory today against a workmanlike Australian team

Superb goal from Pogba though !

Just seen a replay of the penalty awarded to the French....Griezmann did get clipped on his heels.

Close call !

Missed both goals! (Not houndies fault this time 64....I turned over to the cricket....when I went back to footy it was 1-1. Speaking of houndie Leon, I've posted up a pic of him on Mrs 64's 'hector' thread, underneath faaips pic. ) :)
