Did kimpembe just pass to the referee (who was marked)?
Can someone explain to me why Portugal's third goal wasnt off-side?
There’s a defender behind him on the six yard line who plays him on. Shoddy defending by that player.
Because the defender was closer to the goal than the attacker
Anyone got more of these flairs?
Would you look at that, all of the words in your comment are in alphabetical order.
I have checked 2,046,052 comments, and only 489 of them were in alphabetical order.
Lol I finally get the predictions right
Who was it thay called a tap in for the 3rd goal?
Can someone explain the hate against Portugal? Is it cause of Ronaldo or the last euro? Because Hungary was decent and did their game but Portugal was clearly the best team. People who say it should have been a draw are delirious.
People liked us more when we played "sexy football" and won absolutely nothing.
Everyone likes the nice guys.
If Ronaldo’s 2nd goal isn’t sexy, then I don’t know what is
Yeah, but we dont play the nice (mostly ineffective) football that we played in 1996 and 2000. Everyone liked to watch it, but the results werent that great.
Portugal in 2000 is the reason I started enjoying watching football at all.
I agree with what you’re saying and I thought our performance left a lot to be desired, first goal was a strike of luck. Still I think that goal kinda redeemed our bland performance. Let’s hope we fare better against germany and france, cause it seems we wasted all our luck in the first match.
Probably just Ronaldo and Pepe, plus the fact that they're strong. Overall I think they're quite a likeable team and they have a great footballing culture/relatively unique style.
Portugal are hard to like. They don’t play particularly good football, they complain a lot, and they have a habit of shithousing their way through tournaments.
We could said even worse about scotland
Except that we’re underdogs and don’t have Ronaldo, sure.
I think it's because Ronaldo comes off as a hyper-competitive tryhard and it rubs people the wrong way. But I respect it. He's a good guy off the field, but on the field he's ruthless. As he should be.
Neutrals like underdogs. And Messi fans hating Ronaldo.
One thing is for sure, Portugal needed to win these one if they want any chances to pass
lol I mean...literally the same thing can be said about France and Germany they both need to beat Hungary if they want any chance to pass.
If they can draw both FRA and GER games they should be good.
Will probably even be good with just one draw from those too
You’re actually right. +3 GD might help in that case unless Hungary becomes practice team for FRA and GER.
Doesn’t even matter really. The win against Hungary means they have a great chance of going through even if they finish third
!flair : Portugal:
Man, this game was a pleasure to watch. Hungary and their fans should be proud, the desire on the pitch was matched by the energy in the stands. Well fought victory for Portugal, that was a seriously tough game. Ronaldo’s second goal was sensational. 10/10 would watch again.
Someone whom understands football 👆people whom say it was a bad match or boring know nothing!
Is anyone else having issues with the fantasy league?
Don't come at me, Hungary parked the bus and didn't deserve the win. They got 5 shots 3 of them on target. Portugal got 11 shots and 7 on target. Not to talk about the ball possession and other statistics massively in favour of Portugal.
I don’t think anyone is gonna “come at” you for stating the complete obvious. Also, it’s not a fifa game, the only stat that matters is goals.
Well 3-0 and people still say it was underserved 🤷♂️
Very few people would watch that game and say it was undeserved
Reddit Match thread comments beg to differ.
Don't think anyone is saying Portugal didn't deserve to win. Are you also seeing G-Men when you walk down the street?
Terrible performance, we didn't deserve to win at all. But 3 points is still 3 points.
Um sábio uma vez disse: Se é para dizer merda então cala a boca.
A Hungria fez um excelente jogo, Portugal se tivesse tido sorte como dizes estaria a ganhar 3 a zero na primeira parte .. Isso sem ter em conta se Portugal marca um golo que fosse a Hungria ia ter que tirar o autocarro da baliza. Por algum motivo marcamos 3 golos em 5 min.
The worst enemy of a portuguese is ALWAYS a portuguese.
We absolutely deserved to win. Hungary parked a massive bus. 70% possession and double their shots and shots on target.
Stats don't mean anything. Hungary played their game, which was to secure a draw. They were better at playing their game than we were at playing ours.
Yes, Hungary clearly played their game better than we played ours which is why this game ended in a draw.
The game didn't end in a draw because we got a lucky deflection. I don't think we would have scored if it wasn't for that.
Luck goes both ways. Lucky Ronaldo missed an open goal.
Think you'll play better in those games. The line-up and some of the performances \*cough\* Jota were bad. Today's result will be enough for you to go through via the 3rd place qualification spot anyway no matter what happens in the next two games. But you have quality and one of your players is so elite that you can get out of jail.
We'll play better because we love playing teams that have possession. We aren't good when we need to control possession.
>We aren't good when we need to control possession.
Yeah, today showed that.
Not like any of your goals shouldn't have stood
This was a confusingly correct comment
Youd come in 4th in this group
