Germany vs Portugal, Euro 2012: Open Thread
Germany is always a joy to watch. They’re a well-respected team around the globe, and play with such a purpose and confidence that is lacking in other teams (cough, cough, England). In their opening Euro 2012 game today, they come up against a Portugal side that has been a shambles in the friendlies before the tournament. Yes, they have Cristiano Ronaldo, but will he be enough to turn around this Portugese side?
Today’s match is a perfect opportunity for Portugal to get revenge on Germany. If you remember, Portugal lost to Germany in the Euro 2008 quarter-final. Plus, Portugal lost to Germany in the World Cup 2006 third place match.
