Portugal 1 Angola 0
This game was not as exciting as I anticipated. I had expected Angola to do better. A victory by a former colony over their previous overlords would have been good to see. Portugal played very poorly in the last World Cup in 2002 when we destroyed them to the surprise of lots of arrogant Europeans. They did a little bit better today. But, Angola unlike the US did not rise to take advantage of the opportunity.
