Portugal Fall to Norway


Portugal succumbed to a 1-0 defeat against Norway as Silvio made his debut for the Seleccao. It is not a stretch to say that the Seleccao’s performance was even more uninspired than their previous game against Cyprus. An embarrassing blunder from Eduardo gave the hosts the deserved win. Portugal’s only good chances fell to Manuel Fernandes and Raul Meireles. The latter was clear through on goal, but shot well over and wide. Overall, it was a very discouraging performance from the Seleccao, reminiscent of Portugal’s friendly against Estonia last year. With the Portuguese coaching job in chaos, and Oliveira obviously not able to coachas well as required, the future looks grim for the Seleccao.

Eduardo, Silvio, Ricardo Carvalho, Bruno Alves, Miguel Veloso, Tiago(Danny), Manuel Fernandes, Raul Meireles, Nani, Hugo Almeida, Quaresma(Liedson)
