I heard somewhere that there's way more women (think 6ft blondes) than men in Iceland , I have no idea if it's true though, but I have always thought I'd like to go and find out. Now would seem to be a good time there being even better odds with 10% of the population, I presume predominantly men, in St-Etienne.

EDIT: just checked in Wiki and the surplus of women is unfortunately not true, there's more men :(
Still with all the blokes in France it will have evened up the odds, so I reckon the trip is still on :D

That result was no surprise, it was a typical Portugal performance exciting and brilliant at times capable of beating most, and at other times quite pathetic and so very frustrating, especially in defence.
That Icelandic keeper has to be the worst we have seen in ages at this level, why oh why did Ronaldo and Co not keep testing him with shots as he kept fumbling everything that came his way.
I still think they will go through to the next phase.

I respect that is your view, i felt other than the Nani save you mention, he was a nervous wreak fumbling most balls that came his way and was rescued by his central defenders many times. And more importantly by a wasteful Portugal team doing what they always do best, that is fail to punish a team when on top.
Lets just agree that we saw the match differently.:p

Ronaldo making an even bigger c*nt of himself than usual...

https://www.theguardian.com/football/2016/jun/14/portugal-iceland-euro-2016-match-report

Cristiano Ronaldo reacted to a restorative night for the game with all the petulance and pettiness of a spoilt child.
“Iceland didn’t try anything,” whined the Portuguese captain. “They were just defend, defend, defend and playing on the counterattack. It was a lucky night for them. We should have three points but we are OK. I thought they’d won the Euros the way they celebrated at the end. It was unbelievable. When they don’t try to play and just defend, defend, defend, this in my opinion shows a small mentality and they are not going to do anything in the competition.” They have already accomplished more than expected and were at one with their fans after the final whistle while Ronaldo raged at the referee. etc.
