Hi,
Which friendly surprised you? Me it was France. Nil Nil. I bet anything that Domenech is rethinking that Gomis call up. France is a favorite for the Euro 2008. It can't afford a final result like that. Where are the goals?

Portugal 2-0 Georgia. On paper it was obvious that Portugal could win. The troubling thing is that once again the forwards are not scoring. I hope Nani has a great Euro 2008. Italy's Di Natale already scored 2 goals in 1 match.

I am happy because Romania won this game for a better moral.

Is there any reason why Torres was subbed off so early? Purely tactical I hope..
