    Expect this to be part of a major Portuguese ad campaign to attract non-English tourists!

  • How mature. Perhaps the FAI should organise a few matches against the Three Lions- several adverse results later, they might decide to withdraw from here too 😉

    This is totally meaningless.
    One on-line travel company reports that searches on their site have dropped from 4th to 15th.
