  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    David Crossan, Metalist Stadium: Portugal were really impressive after falling behind. Paulo Bento's side are bossing the midfield and forcing Rafael van der Vaart to spend much more time in his own half than he would like. Paradoxically, taking off a forward-minded player might allow the Dutch to attack more.
