PREVIEW & PREDICTION:Cristiano Ronaldo and company had been regarder as the underdogs of the world cup, but after impressive showing in the group stages people now are taking them as serious contenders for the big final and game against a very highly rated Spainish side will truly test their credentials whether they can perform agaisnt the bigger nations. Predicting a winner in such a game is always difficult, Spain look strong on paper but Portugal showed that theu are a tough nut to crack and very hard to break down that is the task spain face when they take on them. Im predicting a narrow (1-0) for Portugal.
