Who would have picked this guy as the most productive defender of the tournament so far? Well, lots of people because he was also cheap but still. (Photo by Manuel Queimadelos Alonso/Getty Images)
I'm getting this post up early because I'm going to be out of the office for the early afternoon and I wanted to make sure that we have a place where people can chat about the match. My hope is that I'm back for kickoff and will be able to watch the game with everyone.
This is definitely the more interesting of the two semi-finals for me. Spain has more talent but Portugal have the better finisher and even if he doesn't get as many chances he could easily tilt the outcome if he is on his game and the breaks go his way (he could have 6 or 7 goals this tournament if the posts were a little kinder to him).
As far as my team, I have Casillas, Alba, CRon, and the Joao's (Moutinho and Pereira) going today.
Let's get to chatting...
