Carlos Quieroz had a different opinion of the match or maybe he was watching a different match?
"I think it was a great show, a football feast. Brazil played very strong in the first few minutes but after their initial period of domination, Portugal slowly started to control the game. In the end, it was a game where we attacked and they defended. Today is a day to celebrate because Portugal has qualified with a great degree of merit. It was a great game of football, the players played extremely well and they must be congratulated. I think the draw was a fair result.''
And so, Brazil and Portugal progress into the last 16. Brazil are formidable and will face Chile, an opponent whom they know about from playing the South American qualifying stages. Portugal, on the other hand, will not enjoy meeting a Spanish side who clearly have overcome their shock opening loss. The Portuguese have yet to concede a goal in the group phases and therefore will rely on their solid defence to thwart the fluid Spanish side.
