World Cup Day 17 - Holland exit in stormy clash

Wow. That must surely have been the game of the tournament?

The first hour was a display of the technical qualities of both sides before both the referee and players lost control to leave four sent off and Portugal going through 1-0.

I'll post more on this game tomorrow, but one thought is that England won't be too disappointed Portugal have gone through. I thought the Dutch looked the better side and the Portuguese will have Costinha and Deco suspended whilst Ronaldo may well be out injured.
