Let me quote the commentator concluding the football game between Portugal and Netherlands:
THE single-most ridiculous second-half of football I have ever had the privilege to witness. Four red cards and 16 yellows. The up-shot? Portugal set up a quarter-final with England.

Right. Absolutely ridiculous! The players were arguing, fighting and played quite dirty. This was a pretty tense game, but it looked more like gladiators fight than a football game.
I wonder, how would Portugal play against England, with all the players who will be missing the next game.

Well... I'm sure they have other players, who would have gone, if someone got injured or something. The team is more than 11 people, so maybe they'll have enough in the next game.

It's not just that they have enough players on the field. The more important question who will play. Some times a loss of one gifted player can cost a match.

That's true. But I'm not too worried about Portugal after the rough way they played.
