Portugal Vs. Bosnia, Euro 2012 Qualifying Playoffs: Veloso Caps Off A Brilliant Portugal Display

Veloso puts the icing on the cake for Portugal and puts Bosnia away for certain as he curls a perfect free-kick in. Everybody was expecting another Ronaldo thunderbolt, but it was the midfielder who capped off his excellent performance, stepping up to curl the ball in with his left foot, after Papac gave the free-kick away with a very deliberate handball.

This has been quite brilliant from Portugal, who suddenly look like the team we all know they could be. The difference between now and the Carlos Queiroz era could not be bigger. Their defence has been dodgy, but otherwise, they've been superb to a man. This is the sort of display that can get a team talked up as potential winners. Beware, is all I'm saying.
