A Portuguese puzzle: where are the goals?

There's a mystery at the heart of Portugal's empty trophy cabinet: why does a country that produces some of Europe's best club talent have so much trouble scoring in international games?

International Love

Rafael Nadal just won his seventh French Open title and Cristiano Ronaldo is currently competing in Euro 2012, so a video of them playing tennis – in which Ronaldo uses his feet – seems appropriate.
