Say Goodbye To England

July 1, 2006 By:

After a long and frustrating match between the Brits and Portugal, Portugal finally defeated England in penalty shootout after a scoreless 90 minutes and a scoreless extra time period.

Everything started to go downhill for England after Hollyscoop favorite David Beckham got hurt and was forced to sit out and after Wayne Rooney got a red card. Maybe it would have been different for England if Beckham was healthy throughout the entire game and if Rooney didn’t get a red card. But nonetheless, Portugal beat England in a penalty shootout by a score of 3:1 and Portugal advances and waits for the winner between Brazil and France. It’s a shame that England is eliminated, but maybe in the next world cup things will be different, on the other hand congratulations to Germany, Italy and Portugal for advancing to the semi finals.
