Portugal Vs. Spain, Euro 2012 Semifinals: Sergio Ramos Gets Away With Murder

More Portugal attacks from pretty promising positions, which is nice to see because France didn't do this. Cristiano Ronaldo wins a free kick near the edge of the box at a very acute angle, and for some stupid reason he attempts a shot. The setup is overwrought, and the shot fizzes straight into the wall. Which was made up of Xavi Hernandez and David Silva. Huh.

Anyway, Portugal are looking much better than Spain would like, and they're starting to worry the Spanish centre halves. Nani's looking lively on the ball, and Sergio Ramos is forced to bring him down as he springs free of a cloud of red shirts. Bizarrely, the referee claims no foul - in a just world that's a yellow card. Very weird. Anyway, we're still at 0-0, and I suspect that we're going to be at 0-0 for a while. Especially if that sort of thing is allowed.
