Euro 2012 Semi Final: Spain vs Portugal
An old football rivalry was ignited last night during the first semi final of Euro 2012. Spain versus Portugal should always deliver a good game, but this one disappointed for large parts. Both teams were on level terms when it came to tactics, drive and passion, but scoring chances were far and few between. After 90 minutes it was still 0-0 and the crowd and television were subjected to another 30 minutes of boring football. However, in those 30 minutes tiredness and urgency came into the game and it became more interesting and a lot nastier. Nine yellow cards but no goals later the players started their penalty shoot out. In the end Spain won and will play the final against either Italy or Germany.
