This will be a short post.
For a short pass.
Because, when you see a backheel like that, you need only to watch.
And say no more.
YESSSSSS ADRIAN SILVA GOT THE ASSIST, DID YOU SEE THAT BACKHEEL FROM THE LEICESTER MAN? 🇵🇹🇵🇹🇵🇹

Well, I’ll say a little more.
About this contentious final day of games for Group B.
About that world class shot from Quaresma, the trivela, bent with the outside of his foot around the diving, stretching arms of the keeper.
“The Quaresma,” it now needs to be called.
Take a bow, Ricardo Quaresma.
Finesse shot with the outside of the foot?

That goal brought Portugal into the Round of 16—after a series of last-minute scares from Iran.
And, I will assert now, if Portugal keep getting that kind of play from these two, with Cristiano Ronaldo drawing attention from the left side of the pitch…
Silva & Quaresma starting. Too much sauce 🤙

They might make a run at this whole thing.
They play Uruguay next, on June 30th. All or nothing.
Winner goes to the quarterfinal.
Half of the round of 16 is set!
That potential Portugal vs Argentina quarterfinal matchup thoughhhh 👀 pic.twitter.com/ZwKkUlGPGh

We might just get a Messi vs. Ronaldo.
