As predicted by muah, the Germans defeated the Portuguese in style, though it was not walk in the park. Goals scored by Schweinsteiger (22nd minute) and Klose (26th minute) gave the Germans an early lead. It was not until the 40th minute did Portugal score its first goal, via Nuno Gomes. Micheal “Kayu” Ballack then incremented the lead at the 61 minute, and Portugal scored the last goal of this euro via Hélder Postiga (87th minute). German accuracy, its a hard thing to beat.
