      the draw takes place monday.. we dont have to worry cause im sure portugal will make it.. the 8 teams are: portugal, france, russia, ireland, greece, slovania, bosnia, and ukraine.. so theres no way they wont make it.. im sure portugal, france and russia will make it.. the last spot is up for grabs and its looking like ukraine or greece. i hope ukraine since im romanian and we didnt make it, ukraine is half romanian half russian.. anyways, lets pray for a good matchup.. it will be though if we draw france or russia but we can make it anyways im sure..

      I want Portugal v Bosnia or Portugal v Slovenia. If it’s Portugal v Greece, Portugal can lose. Greece beat Portugal three times in a row (twice during Euro 2004 and once in a friendly ahead of Euro 2008).

      Wow!! Greece was that good?? I never watch them play, but if they did beat Portugal, they must have been a fantastic team, since Rooney said that Portugal is a tough rival.
