simple and quick because you should be reading the next post....the actual game is a toss-up. But we root for France because we love the Zidane fairytale of this Cup and want to see him go out in a Final. Second reason, if France can win, their legs could easily give out in the Final for them. They are the oldest team in the Cup and will have only 3 full days to recover before the final....Azzurri will have 4. May not seem like much, but it is a lot of football to play in a short amount of time. Portugal is a maddening group. Individuals yet teammates, yet....I don't know just a weird crew. Wildly talented they could easily crush the French, but not sold on their mentality - see Euro Championship Final loss to Greece...yuck.
Anyway prediction - France 2 - Portugal 1.
Henry finally breaks out, only to be overshadowed by Zizou (but that's ok).
