Episode Summary

Semi-final 2: Portugal vs. France
Two European soccer giants clashed in their semi-finals match where it was the first time that the two teams played each other in a FIFA World Cup match.
The history between the two sides however, is long. In their Euro 2000 match, the game ended amid ugly scenes, Portugal had three of their players sent off. Their most recent meeting was in the 2003 European under-21 qualifying match, where the young Portugal team won on penalties and saw the sending off of France's Djibril Cisse for punching one of his opponents. And with Portugal's previous two matches having ended with much controversy, a messy ending in this match was in store.
The second semi-final match was held at the stadium in Munich. Portugal played in port red attire. 'Les Bleus' was in white.moreless
