UTAKMICU između Hrvatske i Portugala nogometni stručnjaci i navijači širom svijeta najavljivali su kao spektakl, kao šlager osmine finala, no nakon prvih 45 minuta, euforija je naglo splasla.
U prvom poluvremenu obje su momčadi uputile po dva udarca prema vratima, a niti jedna lopta nije išla u okvir gola.
Slavni Lothar Matthäus, stručni komentator ITV-a, koji je uoči meča najavljivao nogometnu poslasticu, na poluvremenu je bio vidno razočaran prikazanom igrom u Lensu, a jednako kao i slavni Nijemac utakmicu Hrvatske i Portugala su vidjeli i nogometni fanovi.
If anyone out there was on the fence about whether or not to be a soccer fan, I hope they didn't watch the 1st half of Croatia-Portugal.— Jon Siddoway (@JSiddoway) June 25, 2016
I've never seen a game of football more boring than this Croatia vs Portugal. Litteraly fell asleep (no joke). Going to play Skyrim instead.— 14 (@Hazpillian) June 25, 2016
This match will end 1-1. Very frustrating to watch. Portugal better with possession. Croatia not testing our defense. Poor so far. #POR— Jonas (@Jacknista) June 25, 2016

UK left Europe by referendum, and Croatia-Portugal are trying to leave by boredom. #EURO2016— Andrew Bolte (@albolte) June 25, 2016
Went to soccer pissed that I was gonna miss the first hour of the Portugal vs Croatia game but seems like I didn't miss much— Maiyo⚡ (@RonaldoJuniior_) June 25, 2016
Death by shooting squad or Death by Portugal vs Croatia. The former sounds like a cuddle.— Fyodor (@Nerdocrat) June 25, 2016
