Nelson Oliveira comes on for Hugo Almeida, who has done absolutely nothing useful for Portugal today. Who was the last
good competent centre forward Portugal have produced? Anyway, it's Spain who have the ball and substitute Jesus Navas presses forward. It's a dangerous attack, but he manages to foil it by delaying his pass and then crossing to nobody, which is pretty disappointing.
Portugal try to break out, and Cristiano Ronaldo gets himself fouled. His first free kick is blasted into the wall, where it's blocked by Alvaro Arbeloa's arm. Free kick the second flies well over Iker Casillas' net. Ronaldo's set pieces have been pretty sublimely disappointing today, which is a shame because they represent some of Portugal's best chances to stage a major upset. I'd say this game really needs a goal, but we're now five minutes from full time and it's still 0-0, so duh.
