Re: Euro 2008 Group Stage Matches
I thought Nuno Gomes played ok. He hit the woodwork twice and was unlucky. Cronaldo is too selfish to play as a proper lone striker. Gomes not great but he's the best option they have. Cronaldo is too selfish to play as a proper striker and playing him there negates his greatest strength which is arriving late in the box. If he's playing as a proper striker any decent central defender should be able to mark him out of it in the air especially. If he's arriving from deep with lots of moentum though it's a different story.
Very disappointed with Turkey I was under the illusion that they were a good footballing side (like their U23s ) and that Tuncay wasn't the same clown he is for Boro when playing for them.
