Did Portugal chuck tonight's game?

Opinions? I think that resting half of your first team, and consequently getting stuffed by one of the three worst sides in the competition, constitutes throwing the game.

I swear that was not Portugal playing... Something fishy was going on. Obviously as it is taking place in Switzerland and Austria the Switzerland guys probably payed the team to let their team win, and seem like good loosers. It makes no difference to Portugal

portugal were virtually guaranteed top spot and playing a second string preserved key players. I can see romania snatching a result and after their first game i saw as very dark horses this year.

PS: TURKI-YE BEAUTY!

They were already guaranteed top spot prior to the game. Turkey or Czech could only reach the same points total as Portugal, and since they had already beaten both teams, this takes precedence in determining the group position, not goal difference.

Portugal had already done the hard work, no result could have made any difference. A good punter would have recognised this (is there such a thing, lol).

That was my main point. Many mug punters wouldn't necessarily have seen it coming and they probably feel like they got put away.

i think they used a younger team for this match as they were already qualifies for next round. ;)

As already mentioned, they were guaranteed top spot regardless so the manager can rest players if he chooses to. I think they were a bit unlucky though. Hit the woodwork twice, had a goal (incorrectly) ruled out for offside, and Nani could (and probably should) have had 2 penalties.
