Wow, what a smash in the face to the Celtic player off Porto free kick in close in the 38th minute! I surely would not like one of the hardest kicking players in the world putting a professional soccer ball into my nose from 10 yards away.

Ah well, halftime now. That goal in the 45th minute hurts.

Dang, I walk away and Henrik Larsson scores! 1-1!!

And just like that Porto goes up again.

Damn, this is turning into a scorefest. Larsson just scored again. 2-2 now. The radio folks pointed out that the 4 goals have happened within 14 minutes of each other.

Sorry to be posting away. You may be interested to know that the game has gone to silver goal.

I think Derlei's final goal was terrific and incredibly well deserved. I know I'm a newby and all but I think Celtic should have been playing with eight men by the end for all the nasty fouls. How Thompson did not even get a card for his absurd out of bounds and onto the running track blast is beyond me. Yeah Porto!

It sounded like a great match on the radio. I am bummed about the outcome, but I am looking forward to see the tape (gee, I didn't get the impression that Celtic had any nasty fouls from the BBC Scotland feed, go figure). Congrats to Porto!

I wish there were teams that i cared about in this damn final...

Bravely fought by Celtic, but I got the feeling throughout the match that Porto were slightly the better football team. Would have been interesting to see how it would have turned out if John Hartson hadn't been injured though ...

The Portugese number ten was shit hot, I want him.
