I agree. But this title and the manner in which it was won (against the host nation and with all odds stacked against us) will be remembered forever.
Not really (apart from the population of Portugal).
See what happened to Greece.
Their title was even more surprising than that of Portugal IMO and noone could tell you who the players were or what kind of football they played.
I don't pretend to understand the current football trends however (see my failed predictions here ), so maybe I am wrong and underestimate the impact from that team.
