Portugal sent packing after first round

Portugal sent packing after first round

Reuters

 

LISBON -- Portugal's World Cup squad arrived home to jeers and scuffles amid soul-searching about what their exit said about the national character.

 

The team, whose status among the pre-tournament favorites was shattered with a first-round exit, arrived at Lisbon's airport lobby to a noisy welcome from hundreds of fans.

 

Most cheered the squad with chants of "Por-tu-gal", but many whistled in derision or shouted insults at the players, coaches and officials who passed through a corridor of police.

 

"You pimp!" one fan shouted at Gilberto Madail, chairman of the Portuguese Football Federation.

 

"Mental and physical cripples," a sign carried by one fan said.

 

Valentim Loureiro, the head of Portugal's domestic league, was at the center of a scuffle when jeering English hooligans dressed in St. Albans City shirts surrounded him. His driver had to shove the unhappy fans away from his car as they sang, "you're even worse than Canvey".

Being bottom of the league the whole season, and then getting relegated. That's worse, you'll have to experience the same situation next year. Shame. You wont be writing crap on the forums then!

How can we deny we f#cked-up? It’s there in black and white and with us still in the Ryman. Only someone like zeal, who lives in his on little world, could deny that thier team did not reach their expectations. We did f#ck-up, but fortunately, our expectations are high but not unrealistic, unlike most.
