  1. Nice article. Very useful.Portugal will meet Austria in saturday’s game from Euro 2016 group F, played at Parc des Princes, Paris. After Portugal made a 1-1 draw with Iceland is now on 3rd position in group F, neither Austria didn’t do any better after losing with Hungary with 2-0 at home, having not the last rank in the group F. I wonder if Koller’s team prepared us with a surprise for today. Based on the past results of the two teams, I would expect for Portugal to perform well during this meeting and win this game. It should be interesting to see if Ronaldo will score during this match as he has a good average in terms of goals scored/match.
