What did everyone think of the performances by the players/coach during the Euros? GK: Patricio=7.5/10- Fantastic reflexes and shot stopping, almost got his hand to Bendtners second goal, and looked good in net. My only issue with him is that at times he starts to come out to gather a cross, but then hesistates and runs back....but that security should come with more age/experience Eduardo/Beto= did not play DF: Pepe= 9/10- BEAST. Probably the best centreback of the tournament besides Hummels, and he made superb interceptions and clearences from in tight. His speed/athletism was on display, just hope in 2 years when he's 31 at the world cup he can still perform the same way. Bruno Alves= 8/10- Strong in the air, aggressive marking, good understanding with Pepenbeauer with solid positioning...but his lack of foot speed and inaccurate long range passing caused some moments of concern. Overall he was very steady and offers the steel and set piece ability Portugal often lacked against strong teams. Rolando= 6/10- Didn't play much, coming on in defensive cameo's to hold a lead against the Dutch/Czechs. He did ok, but his poor positioning and lack of foot speed caused van persie to bear in on goal late on and he always seems to act in desperation, not maintaining a cool head, when clearing the ball. Joao Periera= 7/10- Far better than originally expected. While he was beat a few times defensively against the likes of Robben/Jordi Alba/Pilar/Iniesta..he battled hard and wasn't the open highway everyone feared he would be. He possesses a good engine and links up well in attack, the assist to Ronaldo against Holland being sublime. He's still a weakness with in swinging aerial crosses from the opposite flank though. Fabio Coentrao= 8/10- I want to give him a higher mark, but he lost some of his fabled 1 v 1 ability, and doesnt beat a man as much anymore when bombing down the wing. Besides that however, he was exceptional defensively for the most part, contributed to the attack being one of the few outlets in transition and offered up an assist and adding depth to our attack. Just wish he could rediscover that ability to just dribble by a player to create space/mismatches in attack as often as he did when he was at Benfica Miguel Lopes/R Costa didnt play MF: Miguel Veloso= 7/10- What a shocking performance, coming into this tournament riding the bench for a Genoa squad that barely escaped relegation, having various defensive holes in his game, he was a worry. However, he covered a lot of space and grew into the role game by game, leading to a strong performance against Holland where he positioned himself well in the dutch passing lanes intercepting a lot of plays, and growing more comfortable in transporting the ball up the field. Raul Meireles=6.5/10- I thought he was quite average, he left his shooting boots at home and misplaced numerous passes. He worked hard but for a team that lacks a playmaker he needed to provide more going forward. Against Spain it must be said though that he was a pitbull, and heavily contributed to the disruption of their passing game and didn't let them walk into our half until he ran out of gas. Joao Moutinho=8/10- Exceptional against the Czechs, but most notably against Spain. Not only for linking play and driving forward, but his defensive workrate and capability to recover the ball was oustanding....he proved he has a place in the Portuguese midfield going forward until a better box to box ala maniche comes along. He struggled against the germans and danes, but grew into the tournament throughout the dutch match. Custodio=6.5/10- Nothing flashy, worked hard and closed down well in all his cameos. not the most talented of players, but one whose brain, positoning, and decision making makes him a decent defensive minded option off the bench. Viana/Miceal didn't play FWDS: C.Ronaldo=8/10- Overall he had a very strong tournament, 3 goals, 4 posts, created some chances his teammates missed. But he shanked that great chance against Spain in the 90th minute...which would have been the icing on the cake to cap off a great 90 minutes where Portugal did what they had to do...the team needed that goal as they were about to start running on fumes. I also dislike how the forward always has to cover his wing defensively because Ronaldo is a bity lazy..what other superstar is accommodated like that? Nani=7.5/10- He had a couple of assists, but he lacked an explosive performance where he terrorized the opposition throughout the game(like vs spain in that 4-0 friendly where he was stunning). He was steady, created decently, defended well, but lacked a goal he was capable of delivering and today againsty Spain when he needed a big performance he was a bit "apagado". I think that injury he got the last minute against Turkey was hindering him from reaching full flight. Varela=7/10- Considering how he was utalized, he did his job as an impact substitute wonderfully against Germany/Denmark, and scored a HUGE goal that turned the Euro for the squad. Couldn't ask for much when he came on against Spain with 7 minutes left and a completely gassed squad. Postiga= 6.5/10- The best of the worst, he has a brain, has a decent touch, moves well to create space for the wingers, defends well from the front, and scored a goal. Could have used him tonight as Ronaldo would have had more space to operate and he's always good for a confident cheeky penalty. Hugo Almeida= 5/10-An oxcart, a third centreback, his lack of mobility really hindered ronaldo/nani today, and while he holds the ball ok at times he spurned the few chances he had, blew his shots high and wide, and had the ball at the top of the 18, with nani running free on his left, but elected to blast over with his coveted left foot. Nelson Oliveira= 5/10- The kid. Well that perfectly underlines his tournament. The skill, mobility, and speed are evident when he plays, but he just utterly lacks experience and proper decision making to utalize them at this level so far..pretty much a non factor against Holland and Spain. Ricardo Quaresma= didnt play Paulo Bento- Have to give him some leeway here, he took a disjointed and fractured squad to the Euros after qualification hopes seemed to be receding into the distance. Navigated one of the strongest groups in the history of futebol, and give a historical Spanish team it's toughest test with lets be honest, a pretty average Portugal squad in terms of talent compared to the previous 12 years. Most players will be back for a run to qualify for Brazil 2014..heres hoping manuel fernandes comes good because a talented midfielder off the bench was desperately needed, custodio was the only option today, and it pretty much destroyed any portuguese forward momentum..an injection of control, speed, and quality was needed, but not available. Maybe some of the good players from u21/u19 can step up and reinforce the team. Ronaldo will be 29, I'm worried his already diminished natural dribbling ability 1 v 1 will deteriorate further leading to that age..it's going to be his last chance.
