Boooooom! At least Liverpool fans can take some comfort in the form of new signing Raul Meireles, though whether he ever replicates this thundertwat of a strike in their colours is another matter (John Jensen MkII?).
And in the interests of Andrew Marr not calling me pimpled and single again, I am compelled to add that Portugal won their Euro 2012 qualifier 3-1 in Reykjavik, with goals by Meireles, sub Helder Postiga (former rubbish Tottenham striker) and some upstart called Cristiano Ronaldo.
Portugal’s new head coach, Paulo Bento, has now overseen back-to-back wins in Group H since replacing the suspended Carlos Queiroz last month.
