Scolari's silence sums up Portuguese problems

ALCOCHETE, Portugal, June 13 (Reuters) - When Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari spends most of the second half sitting quietly on the team bench, something is badly wrong.

The Brazilian World Cup winner, known in his homeland as "Big Phil", usually puts on his own private show as he rants and gesticulates incessantly on the touchline.

But on Saturday, Scolari remained glumly in his seat for most of the time, occasionally opening his arms in utter exasperation as the Euro 2004 hosts lost 2-1 to outsiders Greece in the tournament's opening match.

It was easy to understand his frustration.

On a man-to-man basis, Portugal appear to have one of the most talented squads in the competition.

A lineup that includes Real Madrid forward Luis Figo, the core of the Porto side which one the Champions League and Italian-based defender Fernando Couto, who boasts more than a century of international caps, should be a match for anyone.

As a team, however, they repeatedly fail to live up to their billing.

Portugal went out of the 1996 European Championship at the quarter-final stage after being tipped as outsiders to win the title and dubbed the "Brazil of Europe."

They failed to qualify for the 1998 World Cup and fell at the first hurdle in 2002 after embarrassing defeats by the United States and co-hosts South Korea.

The only time they came close to fulfilling their potential was at the last European Championship, when they reached the semi-finals.


In a recent interview with a Brazilian newspaper, Scolari complained that European players were "cold."

"If you look at the European player during the team-talk, you don't see that glint in their eyes," he told the Jornal do Brasil.

His behaviour on Saturday appeared to reflect that sentiment.

It cannot be easy for a man accustomed to the cut-throat competition of South American club football to accept such a lethargic, uninspired display from his team.

Figo, shoulders hunched and bearing the expression of a man who feels the world is against him, was a shadow of his Real Madrid self and winger Cristiano Ronaldo's fancy footwork almost invariably ended with an overhit cross.

Benfica strikers Nuno Gomes and Simao Sabrosa blamed the performance on nothing more than a bout of stage fright, promising everything will be fine against Russia on Wednesday.

Attempts to find a more deep-rooted explanation were repelled by the repeated use of the words nerves, anxiety and tension.

Although Portugal's players often gestured angrily to each other during the game, Nuno Gomes would not entertain a suggestion from one reporter about a possible lack of unity and threw the question straight back.

"You think we're not united on the field?" he asked. "It's always normal to have anxiety and nervousness," added Simao. "When the ball starts to move, this goes away. We continue to be a united group and we will prove that.

"It's not because of one result that all the work we have done in the previous two weeks will go down the drain."

Nuno Gomes, however, admitted that Portugal were once again in the familiar position of having to keep an eye on other results.

"Unfortunately, we are getting good at doing sums," he said.
