Portugal Vs. Spain, Euro 2012 Semifinals: Negredo Experiment Ends

Looks like Vicente del Bosque has had enough of this nonsense - Cesc Fabregas is coming on for the sublimely disappointing Alvaro Negredo. Spain are back to six midfielders with that, which means they're much more likely to control the midfield. With Negredo having a poor game, they're probably more likely to create chances as well. So that was a fun experiment. Fernando Llorente is sitting on the bench, presumably crying.

Anyway, not much has happened in the second half as of yet. They're doing the wave at the Donbass Arena, which should give you a good idea of just how exciting this is. Spain are in control, but hardly well on top, but the chances haven't really been forthcoming and it's still 0-0.
