Mourinho: Lampard penalty miss was crucial

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho believes Ricardo's penalty shoot-out save from Frank Lampard delivered a fatal blow to England in the World Cup quarter-final in Gelsenkirchen.

Mourinho felt Ricardo, in foiling the man he considers England's best penalty taker, shattered the morale of England, for whom only Owen Hargreaves converted from the spot.

'When the opposing team chooses its best penalty taker to take the first kick and the goalkeeper saves a penalty from someone who has hardly missed in two years then it gives a huge injection of confidence to us and shatters England's confidence,' Mourinho told SIC TV channel.

'Immediately after Lampard's kick you could see Steven Gerrard with his head in his hands. It was very important that Ricardo saved from the best England player.

'The fact that Ricardo is a better goalkeeper for his country than his club shows what a good relationship he has with his coach (Luiz Felipe Scolari).'

Mourinho savoured his team's qualification for the last four for the first time since 1966, admitting: 'I am happy like everyone else.

'Portugal played for a long time against 10 men and could have played better and made us suffer but Portugal ended up winning and that's historic.'
