Rivals starting on Friday of the Ukraine national team team Portugal and Romania, on the last day of January opened the tournament in group C. it is Clear that Ukrainians were the most attentive in the stands “Arena Stožice”. The audience, by the way, there were quite a lot, but the Portuguese had been much more, and they roared louder.

As expected, the conditions dictated by Portugal, which has the undisputed leader – Ricardinho. It was his striking game and decided the outcome of the fight. The Portuguese looked brilliant. In the first attack, he could open an account, but in falling struck over the crossbar. The next attack resulted in a goal. Ricardinho made a pass to the far post, and there Pedro brown header sent the ball into the corner – 1:0.

Further, the Portuguese while still in control of the situation, and then the case started Romanians. Tricky transmission Florina Matei tried to score Ferreira, but at the last moment he missed the ball. Wards Robert Lupu inflated rate, so much so that judges one by one recorded violation of the rules of the Portuguese. A few minutes before halftime Lupu suddenly went for broke, releasing a fifth field. At the gates favorite match was very hot. Florin Matei from a lethal position has punched in Bebe, and then missed the point Oliveira. The assault ended with a powerful shot Tunji, but there Ricardinho put his head, and from it the ball hit the crossbar…

Currently, at the end of the first half Portugal scored again. With out Ricardinho softly kicked Cecilia that accurately shot from the summer – 2:0.

In the second half, initially, both teams played very carefully, so nothing interesting happened. While in the middle of the period the Romanians again, I do not like about yourself. Excellent chance missed Reduce, unable to break yeah. And then the Romanians fifth field out Front, and again became fun. After hitting the same Stand, yeah the ball is caught and immediately shot at the empty goal but missed. Then the Front hit the post, and a minute later your Dumitru has reached when in the penalty area of opponents played above all praise – 2:1.

Scoring, Romania received a chance for salvation and continued to play with the fifth field. But this time, the opposite has happened. After all, Portugal has Ricardinho, and Romania such player no. During a counterattack, namely Ricardinho, housing, removing one of the defenders, turned and struck without interference “rabonas” past the startled Tonite – 3:1. And soon a lightning counter-attack was completed and Bruno Coelho – 4:1.

At the end of the match, the Romanians were able to narrow the gap, but one of the shots hit the post. Today (at 21.45 Kyiv time) the fight becomes the Ukrainian national team that will play against Romania. If they win, the charges of Oleksandr Kosenko, they are ahead of schedule will enter the quarter finals, otherwise the options. Not the best.
