Portugal will never win a Euro/WC, they don't have what it takes.
I just read an article saying that they had Ronaldo kicking 5th for the PK's. Their train of thought was that if it was tied going into the last shooter then they wanted their best player to shoulder the most pressure. Too bad it didn't even get that far! Personally, I'd always have my best stricker shoot first in PK's but there's no exact science behind it!
