The second set of matches for Group B get underway this evening, with Denmark (winners of their opening match against Netherlands) and Portugal (losers of their opening match against Germany) set to play each other at the Lviv Arena. My limited knowledge would have put Portugal as the favourites for this, but apparently they finished behind Denmark in qualifying for the Euros, and, of course, in the last World Cup. However, Portugal have never failed to make it out of the group stages of the Euros - since group stages were put in place.
Denmark vs Portugal (Group B)

I'm flying solo on this one then?
*Collapses in* I'm here, though the latest issue of The Blizzard has just got here so, I may be somewhat distracted.
Distractions are fine. I'm trying to work also.
I always find I work better when I have a socc...football match on since I want to appear still productive.
Who are we cheering for?
Denmark. I continue to allow myself to be baffled as to why Helder Postiga starts for Portugal.
Ok, I'm Favoring Portugal too.
Wait, the announcer was saying Portugal and I typed Portugal. I'm cheering for Denmark! Really!!
I hate short corners.
So unexciting. The Japanese would to them all the time. Although I understand why they did.
Hi, bye, back shortly.
You had better be ;)
I jokingly just said they should bring on another poulsen - and they did!
Ugh, the University of Montana's website login procedures are so frustrating.
I just said to mrs. Goat that I thought a goal was coming.
What was that!
That was kind of a late hit on the keeper...oh I guess he slipped...
Right, what have I missed? A goal! Darn it, that reputation is going nowhere.
Evening. Just got in - dunno what has happened so far, but can I bring you some more action?
Here is another one.
I was close.
Helder freaking Postiga as well. He couldn't do that at Spurs, could he.
On paper, Denmark were supposed to win this one. However it's typically Danish to do well against good teams and lose to worsen ones.
I would defos prefer the Danes to qualify over the Portugezzers.
That was awesome!
Postiga and Bendtner scoring in the same game? There's a joke in there.
blimey. walked into two goals.
People are tipping Bendtner for the golden boot.
That was the crown prince of Denmark applauding there!
Dirty, dirty Portugal!
Jeez, could ITV be any more perverted.
covering this game like it's 1979 ;)
what are they saying?
More who they are showing ...
lucky christine missed the end of last nights coverage!
Same as for the world cup, itv are shocking. I'm watching this game in Danish.
Last night instead of analysing I think it was the first game, they showed two England players in a pool throwing a football at each other.
I believed you could hear the sirens and the gun shots in the background as well, but no, England was far more important.
I feel like I'm missing out with just ESPN here.
So if Portugal wins, that helps Netherlands. Now I'm torn...
Esp if the Dutch can get a result later.
Yeah they showed 2 seconds of riot police then went back to discussing Roy hodgepodges hair.
Best player at the tournament?
As in Ronaldo is supposed to be the ...
If portugal wins I'll have to support the Germans, in the hope that by qualifying they rest all their players in the final game and Denmark might get a result!
Oh I thought that was a question for us...
Not a question for this point. Maybe after the group stage it will be a better discussion
Is the stadium announcer the voice of God?
Whew. Dean just walked in. Had to look busy. :D
HOW DID HE MISS THAT!?!
Hey, I can shoot like that. I must be joint greatest player in the world.
G O A L
Haha, nice one. Ronaldo really should've got that other one in ;)
Bendtner for Golden Boot?
Ronaldo will the ruing those misses now
But at least I can now say...
Everyone looks rather tired
Ahh shame for Denmark
Agreed, but if the Dutch win them the group is wide open :D I like the sound of that
See you all for the next match.
Gutted. Denmark defended poorly. I really really hope holland beats germany now, I really don't want to see Portugal qualify!
Some anti-Portugal scenarios: Germans beat Dutch next. In final matches German & Denmark draw, Netherlands beat Portugal = German & Denmark qualify.
Or: Germans & Netherlands draw, Germans win, Netherlands win = Germans and Netherlands qualify.
how come we don't like portugal?
I think they've put us out twice recently.
They have a lot of players I really can't stand.
I've been to both Denmark and Portugal (well only briefly) and despite the sunny beaches I preferred Denmark in the rain.
Because they play dirty, when they have so much class they don't need to!
In fairness I was only passing through Porto airport (for *hours) then sat on a bus to get to Spain. And Copenhagen had nice food and a harbour and some goats.
We had a great weekend with you though!
Those things and Ronaldo is a bit arrogant isn't he?
