The next day…

Today many Portuguese woke up to the sad reality that Portugal will not be playing in the finals after last night’s loss against France. Although the dream of becoming World Champions was harshly stolen from them there is still a little room for redemption, third place.

While third place isn’t all that's cracked up to be, Portugal still hopes to give its fans one final World Cup celebration Saturday in its match against Germany. Last time Portugal fought for this spot it was in 1966 when Eusebio's team beat the Soviet Union to capture third place, representing Portugal’s best finish up to date.

"We're proud and happy to be in the best four of the 32 teams that started this tournament," Scolari said. "It's an historic achievement."

Although third place isn’t has clamorous as the finals it is always better than fourth.

Portugal beats England

It won't be this time that England beats Portugal, it has been this way for some 40 years. After England lost David Beckham to an injury and Wayne Rooney to a red card, Portugal won a shootout 3-1 following 120 minutes of scoreless soccer.
Ricardo, Portugal's goalkeeper, was definitely the one responsible for the victory when he spectacularly saved three out the four penalty kicks. Portugal will now progress into the semi-finals to face France on Wednesday in Munich.

Figo prepered for England

Luis Figo told reporters that they have been studying English players by watching videos of them in action and that they knew pretty well what Sven-Goran Eriksson's boys could do. He also added that his team was prepared for the game and for whatever the English side had to offer.

"We will treat them with respect. We know the English team well, we know the players one on one, we know the way they play and we are prepared for the game," told Figo.

The fact that Portugal put England out of Euro 2004 and that England hasn't between Portugal in a major competition for some 40 years is only contributing to make this an explosive game.

England only managed to beat Portugal 2-1 in the semifinals on its way to its only World Cup triumph in 1966. Since then, in all major competitions Portugal has always prevailed against England, winning 1-0 at the 1986 World Cup, 3-2 at the 2000 European Championship and the 6-5 on penalties in the 2004 European Championship quarter-finals.
