Germany take on Portugal on Saturday 9th June, 2012, with kickoff at 19:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BBC1.
Two footballing cultures clash this evening in the biggest game of Euro 2012 to date, and they could not really be more different. The German squad has its strength in depth, with great attacking options and no truly key players at the back, while the Portuguese system has become increasingly focussed on one man. This Ronaldo-vision may have actually made it easier to play against the men from Iberia, but only relatively, and they do have other threats.
This should be a fantastic game, and both sides will be desperate to win and start their campaign off on the right foot.
