This referee would run circles around some premier league refs. Very mobile. And very good at ignoring all the theatrics. Dunno why they even bother rolling around in seemingly agonizing pain any more at this point.

Because they speak Portuguese?
I know, thanks! I lived in Brazil for quite a while.

It is somewhat popular but I mean the party of the brazilian immigrants.
That makes more sense. Purely anecdotal but from what I've been told there's a slight fracture in relations between Brazilians and Portuguese. That might be simply because Brazilians think the Portuguese accent is a bit ugly (no offence)!

River don't play great with the ball but their pressing is incredible. Fla deserve extra time here though.

Do they? I think they’ve been really poor and don’t deserve anything from this game.

Overall, it’s been a bit of a boring final considering all the hype it got

Yes it's harder for brazilians to understand the portuguese than the other way around. The common language still means there's a huge brazilian community in Portugal though so there would be plenty of partying here if the win.

1-1. River should not only have 5 men behind the ball with 5 minutes left.

Glad I stuck this one out until the end, feel for River a bit though.

Two late back-to-back goals to win the cup final from behind in the final minutes - has that ever happened anywhere ever before? :)

I cant believe anyone ever doubted Jorge Jesus as a coach. The man is brilliant and a winner. Best Coach Sporting have had in may lifetime by some distance.

So, just got in, no idea this was on, have avoided comments on score. Is it worth watching from start on iplayer?
