    33rd minute + player of the tournement = 1-0 France!

    Also what about the reaction for Ronadlo? :clap:

    Love the reaction to Ronaldo - just about what he deserves - especially after that clear dive - he was clearly already heading towards the ground before there was any contact at all with a French player.

    As for the clear dive by Ronaldo - what about Henry's severe over-reaction in gaining the penalty? Yes he was brought down by Carvalho - but the theatrics came a good half a second after.

    Half a second when you watch it in slo-mo maybe!

    It was definitely a penalty. When Henry put his foot bown he didn't make sufficient contact to grip the turf to continue running and fell over. If it was a dive, then it was very covert.

    However, as diving goes, the Portugeuse were far from covert - they were a disgrace. The last ten minutes saw them just playing dirty tricks. Perhaps its true that cheaters never win. It's a shame about Ronaldo as when he didn't try to con the ref he was the best attacking player on the pitch.
