How many years did it take for Académica to advance to the Taça de Portugal final?
After an intense two leg semi-final with Liga de Honra side Oliveirense, especially the second-leg being more intense than the first, Académica advanced to the final, but how long did it take for them to reach to the final?

Alex Blower:
Academica advanced to the Taca de Portugal final for the first time in 89 years, after last appearing in the 1923 final of the tournament when they lost 3-0 to Sporting Lisbon in the final on June 24th 1923.

Academica will face off against Sporting Lisbon once again on May 20th, 2012.

What does Portugal’s new kit jersey for the Euro 2012 look like?


Jack Beresford:

Portugal have gone for a more simplistic look for their new home kit, which features the traditional maroon colour for the main body of the shirt, with green lining for the collarless design.

Portugal’s white away kit is more varied though with a special Union Jack-style cross coloured green and maroon featured on the design
