ANGOLA v. PORTUGAL [0-1]

HIGHLIGHTS

It looked to be a rout early on, as soap opera star and part-time Portugal winger, full-time captain Luis Figo weaved his way through the Angolan defence at will, setting up Pedro Miguel Pauleta for the first and only goal. And the Angolans threatened comedy with a series of acrobatic yet misguided attempts at bicycle kicks. Remarkable that they actually came quite close with one of their later tries. But more troubling was the Portuguese imagination, or lack thereof. Ronaldo is making quite a career of tonking shots bound for the woodwork or the goalkeeper's chest. And he certainly leads both league and international play in snide looks, seemingly marveling at and questioning his own perceived genius. Stick to the stepovers and leave Aço Azul for the Pepe Jeans commercials, homey. The Portuguese will qualify, but they'll have to step their gameface up.

Also: LOCO.
