'Without goals there aren't miracles' Cristiano Ronaldo cover of A Bola, March 29, 2009, day after Portugal 0-0 Sweden


I liked A Bola's headline. They refer to the constant 0-0 draws at home. I think more players deserved to be on the cover since they were the ones who shot wide.

The Portugal team did attack, create chances but few on target. Most shots were wide. Two long-range shots from Deco. One from Raul Meireles, one Simao shot also went wide. Two from Danny.

What does one expect when Queiroz does not put a striker in the starting lineup?

A Bola, March 29, 2009
English translation:
270 minutes without goals (in white) leave Portugal far away from the world cup.


57 shots in the last 3 qualification matches, 0 goals

"We can't do more than this. We are satisfied by our game, what we played."

"Football is for those who score and win. We are very frustrated but we will recover the lost points."- Carlos Queiroz
