Bosnia-Herzegovina Vs. Portugal Live, Euro 2012 Qualifying Playoffs: Scoreless So Far In Bosnia, But Portugal The Better Side

While Turkey vs. Croatia has already seen a goal and a couple of near-misses, Bosnia vs. Portugal has been relatively subdued, with only a couple of long-range efforts to show for a game that's mostly been contested in the midfield. Portugal are just about the better side at the Olympic Stadium, and they've fashioned some half-chances - Raul Meireles' 25-yard piledriver ended up drawing a decent save from Asmir Begovic (Cristiano Ronaldo's attempt from a little further out was nowhere near as impressive).

Anyway, almost 20 minutes in and the most interesting thing that's happened is a booking - Sejad Salihovic fulfilled many a football fan's fantasy in kicking the tar out of Ronaldo a good way out from goal and rightly received a yellow card for the assault. The free kick was outside Ronaldo's range, so Meireles took the ball and the whole sequence eventually resulted in Helder Postiga volleying well over the bar. It's all square at 0-0 here.
