Portugal v Ghana: Group G - 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

Why FIFA?! Why?!

First you force us to watch a World Cup that is devoid of Zlatan because you made us choose between Zlatan and Cristiano. Now, you make me cheer on Cristiano and Portugal at the Mane Garrincha National Stadium in Brasilia for the sole purpose of seeing the USA through to the Round of 16!

World Cup 2014 – Group G – Match Report: Germany 4 – Portugal 0

17 Jun

Well… This was it. The German National Team took on Cristiano Ronaldo, and 10 other guys that we just don’t give a shit about (according to ESPN), at Arena Fonte Nova.
