Iberian bragging rights are up for grabs today as Spain takes on Portugal in the Euro 2012 semi-final. The winner will play in Sunday’s final. The loser will go home.

There’s so much on the line in this one. Will Spain move a step closer to winning a historic third major Championship in a row (Euro 2008, World Cup 2010 and Euro 2012)? Or is Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo set to put his name in the history books by putting his nation into a final where they’ll play either Germany or Italy?

As an England supporter, I’m hoping Spain get knocked out today. This Spanish side has been painful to watch at times in this tournament, and hasn’t really been tested yet except for their game against Italy. It’s time for Spain to show us what they have today. But it’s also an opportunity for Portugal to step it up. They’ve improved in every game they’ve played in this tournament, and this will be a true test.

Before, during and after today’s match, post your rants, raves, questions and observations in the comments section below.
