I don't think Portugal will have a tough game against Ireland, we've seen the Irish team at their very best in Portugal, so I don't see how they can surprise Santos again. The only chance for Portugal dropping points is if they play poorly and Ireland produce a phenomenal defensive game.

The Serbia game is trickier but, as Danny said, it was easy for Portugal to score the opening goals. The way I see it, if Nuno Mendes plays on the left and the central midfielders are solid, Serbia will have serious troubles attempting to score.

Along with our new jerseys commemorating 100 years, in celebration we should retire this manager Mr. Santos and along with him Mr Moutinho. Problems solved.

Unstoppable decline. If you wanna go for excuses, do so. But to me it looks like this team is really done. Even if not the strongest line up is on the pitch, but one can see that nothing is to be expected from this group. Completely stuck, dead end street. Wannabe giants that prove to be dwarfs. Sad.
