Luis Figo for Portugal (vs England), 13th June 2000

Quote of the day:

"Jesus said we should turn the other cheek, unfortunately, Figo is not Jesus Christ."

(Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari)

You don't say.... Unless JC had some Portuguese grandparents or qualified through residency, I'm assuming that he would have been playing for Israel, for starters.

I believe he played for Jerusalem FC but moved to Portugal after some 'trouble' and gained residency, something that Scholari had also done with Deco.
