Denmark vs Portugal, Euro 2012: Open Thread
Sir Alex Ferguson is nowhere near the Euro 2012 tournament this summer, but we are — in his words – entering the squeaky bum time of the season, where nations need to win to have any chance of progressing. After Portugal’s 1-0 loss against Germany, the side led by Cristiano Ronaldo now finds itself in a position where they have to get three points against Germany to keep the possibility open that they may reach the quarter-finals of Euro 2012.
On the other hand, Denmark — having beaten Netherlands — can almost guarantee a spot in the quarter-finals stage with a win against Portugal.
Just as yesterday’s Poland against Russia game was a marvelous spectacle to watch, today’s Denmark against Portugal match should be the same, too — with so much on the line.
