I guess I will disagree as I've seen him save more difficult shots at club level. Look, not saying it's his fault as most GK's would not be able to save that on their best day. It's a shot that I've seen and come to expect Hugo to save based off his ability. I'm sure he will look at it the same.

More importantly is this defeat going to make it more likely he stays or goes?

Portugal were not shit. They knew their strengths and played to it. I dont think they have a plethora of exciting players. I thought nani was exceptional in this tournament... pepe was outstanding tonight.

I grudgingly agree, but it works both ways. A truly inspired side would have risen above the bar set by Portugal and won the tournament.

But there wasnt and hasnt been a team who rose above them hence theyre the best.

I agree though there there hasn't been much inspiration and in all honesty this whole tournament lacked inspiration

They should thank that Icelandic clown that scored the winner against Austria

Otherwise they would have been playing England France Germany to reach the final instead of Croatia Poland and Wales
