    The Referee was soo baist, some of the Portugal players even stopped when taking their penelties and he didn't even stop them! Bad Referee-ing, penelties are an awful way to lose/end a game. :(

    Penalty shootouts isn't England's game....have you ever won one in a tournament..?
    And i agree....you where robbed of that goal....there was no foul in my opinion. But Portugal was the better team over the whole game...

    you lot can't complain with all the dodgy decisions awarded England's way the first 3 games

    added to the fact Portugal scored a good goal that crossed the line after they went 1 - 1 what comes around goes around deal with it , you have been the most negative team in the tournament 2 banks of 4 defenders how negative was that


    while i'm at it GIRFUY England4eva

    yes only one unfortunately. it were the qtr finals of euro 96 when we hosted it.we beat spain on penalty then faced germany which went to a shootout also and lost.

    bullshit....... no foul keeper played on it.and im not saying that because im brittish.

    i had doubts about winning....we always stuff up at the wrong time.

    linesman gave the goal..... ref were in no position to see it.


    what goal were that then??

    if we been the most negative. explain germanys exit.!!

    take it you had your st George's tinted glases on son ?? the lad cole cleared it after it went over the line

    at least Germany attacked unlike your lot 8 men behind the ball , Germany's failing was in having no strikers ... that is why they went out

    no way were it over the line.a 32" tv shows a footy match in good detail.

    as for germany in a must win match and one striker!!!!! that is what i'd call total lack of conviction to attempt to get to the qtr's.

    What a great fucking game!!!! it had me on the tip of my couch.
    The goal from Cole was denied and so it should be, I believe it was not Cole who made the foul, but someone was keeping the keeper down in the "litlle Square" and your just not supposed to touch him.

    England played a very good first half (portugal aswell) but in the second half they did the same thing as they did with france, defend, defend, defend and hoping for a counter.
    If that's the way they wanna play, fine, but you can expect a goal against.

    IMO Enlgand was not robbed, Portugal played better football (cause they are better at attacking and building up the game altough their defence is not that best)

    anyway there is only one team that can go further and in this case it's portugal and for that i'm glad!

    Yea they were robbed, The keeper just fell over he wasn't touched! Campbell fouled Terry as he was jumping up to head the ball but they're team-mates so it didn't matter, It Should be England in the Semis right now. :)

    I'm still pretty sure they fouled the keeper, but you can't blaim the ref for not working correct, he did a very good job during the game. and about the penalties, the players didn't fully stop their run, they slowed down but didn't stop. However the ref could have let the penalty be retaken. Well and if the "freekick specialist" would have scored the first penalty england would have won.

    But hey that's football, But I can understand if your an England supporter you disagree.
