Three Points: Portugal lose in Fernando Santos' managerial debut

Goals from Karim Benzema and Paul Pogba helped France to a 2-1 win over Portugal.

PARIS -- Three observations from France's 2-1 home win over Portugal.

Long way back for Sakho

If one match defines Didier Deschamps' reign to date, it is still the stirring comeback in last November's World Cup playoff against Ukraine at the Stade de France. It was a night that made Mamadou Sakho, with the Liverpool defender a goal scorer and a talisman for Les Bleus' resurrection.

As well as his considerable physical attributes, it was always this sense of being totemic that elevated Sakho above...

Previewing this week's best Euro 2016 qualifying matches

Spain international Pedro spoke ahead of the country's Euro 2016 qualifier against Slovakia on their opponents, FC Barcelona and his teammate Cesc Fabregas.

Cynics of UEFA's decision to bolster their European Championship finals entry list to 24 teams will be offered more than a little ammunition to back up their theory that the expanded competition has diluted the pre-event qualifying campaign this week.

England's Wembley meeting with San Marino (FIFA ranking 208) at Wembley on Thursday, Holland's clash with Kazakhstan (127) a day later and the Republic of Ireland's meeting with Gibraltar (unranked by FIFA) are some of the fixtures on the horizon that...

Three Points: Portugal vs. Albania

After a shocking loss to Albania and their early World Cup exit, Shaka Hislop argues that Portugal are not one of Europe's top teams.

Three quick points on Portugal's 1-0 loss to Albania in their opening qualification fixture for the 2016 European Championship:

1. Finding creativity minus Cristiano

After the painful sight of seeing him strain every frayed sinew at the World Cup, it was almost a relief that the indefatigable Cristiano Ronaldo dropped out of this Euro 2016 qualification tie through injury.

Much like fellow titan Lionel Messi last season, there had been a sense that Portugal's captain had been "paying the bill" (to...

Pepe's spiky new hairdo

Summer is time for footballers to let their hair down. Or y'know... Up. Real Madrid and Portugal defender Pepe has had a bit of time to reflect on a new hairdo since he was sent off against world champions Germany in his country's first game of the World Cup.

Frankly, with that much time, he could have come up with something better than this.

Pantomime villain Pepe on borrowed time

Pepe The Prat
Pepe disgraced himself again for his antics against Germany in Portugal's opening World Cup match as his indiscipline reared its ugly head.

If Portugal's players have been entertaining thoughts of what might have been since their World Cup exit three weeks ago, any feelings of regret may have been accentuated by the tournament's climax. Germany were indisputably worthy winners but if we take it right back to the start and the opening game for Jogi Low's side, they might reflect that they received a helping hand.

Germany were certainly beneficiaries of a few Portuguese errors, but none jars in the mind as much as Pepe's first-half...

Dog reacts to Portugal's World Cup exit

Having enthusiastically positioned herself front and centre to watch Portugal's entire World Cup campaign, you can imagine how Severa the Portuguese labrador reacted to seeing her beloved Selecção crash out of the World Cup last week.

Safe to say, she wasn't best pleased.

That said, unlike most England fans, Severa has experienced her fair share of highs during the tournament - like when Portugal grabbed their last-minute equaliser against the USA in Manaus...

Altogether now: awwww...
