Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari insisted he and skipper Luis Figo had not
fallen out following the side's nailbiting Euro 2004 quarter-final win over

Figo, at 31 desperate finally to taste glory at international level for the
Portuguese, who have never won a major trophy, was furious when Scolari
hauled him off with 15 minutes of normal time remaining against England,
sending on Helder Postiga who promptly equalised and forced extra-time.

Personal comments:
Leave him out of the team and Portugal have a chance of winning.
