Belgians Can't Play Football

I never had illusions about the mental abilities of certain footballers. But Belgial goalkeeper Stijn Stijnen beats them all.

The keeper of the Belgian national side admitted they couldn't play football and therefore have only one choice: to kick Cristiano Ronaldo and co. off the park when they meet Portugal on Saturday's Euro 2008 qualifiers.

'After two minutes we will have massacred Ronaldo so much that he will have to leave the pitch on a stretcher,' IQ-champion Stijnen promised.

'If we try to play like Portugal then we will lose. We are the visiting team and have to be aggressive.'

So, aggressivity means that you should try to cause a serious injury to the best player of the opponent? Hail this attitude! We are bad? Well, no problem, kill everyone who's better and we will be the best. Credit to Aidy Boothroyd for not installing this attitude in his Watford team...

The Portuguese FA has asked UEFA to investigate these comments and I very much hope this brainless prat will have to face the consequences of his stupidity.

For the first time in my life, I will cheer on Portugal in an international game. A Ronaldo hat-trick would be nice.
