Portugal finally

woke up. Now 3-1. Rinaldo on a PK to open 1-0 then a quick strike by Ghana to tie it. Followed by two goals by Portugal on counters.
That was a fun game

Love that Ghana played to win.

Serbia is solid, hoping they give Brazil a game
Whats the consensus here on Ronaldo?

He’s clearly in decline, but does anyone think he can be a viable player for a top European team. Or is headed to an MLS or Saudi retirement league? Thoughts

He’s a super sub at best in the top leagues, think he’ll try to finish the year as that before going to LA

Serbia holding their own through 30, but Brazil starting to threaten now.

Agree with super sub, Portugal has offensive talent that he’s keeping off the pitch.

Leao is like a burst of lightning. The WC could be his official entry into superstardom.
That being said Re Leao….

I don’t think anyone at the WC is better offensively in the box than Renaldo. And I am not a fan of his but the guy still has legendary skills in the box.
The Brazil team  
JoeyBigBlue : 11/24/2022 2:57 pm : link
Will breakthrough soon. They’ve had a ton of chances in the first half they didn’t convert.

They just did. You keep firing shots at the goalie, eventually he won't be able to save them all cleanly and you'll get an easy put in as Richarilson just did. The same principle applies in hockey. And Brazil hit the inside of the post just a few minutes earlier.
