Portugal may have been considered Germany's strongest opponents in their World Cup group, but they found themselves out-classed when the sides met on Monday.

Despite the presence of a fully fit Cristiano Ronaldo, Germany hammered home four goals without answer - three of them courtesy of Thomas Muller.

Portugal were on the back foot even before Pepe's sending off for a light headbutt on Muller, with the score sitting at 2-0 at the time.

But after another two goals, there was no way back.

"I've been involved in the last three major tournaments, so I'm used to the pressure," Germany's goal-machine Muller said.

"But to score three goals in one game - that's pretty amazing, and the goals just got better and better.

"It's fantastic, but the merit also goes to the rest of the team."

We're not sure what Bulletproof Wings are, but apparently Warren Feeney has a pair. If this week's results are anything to by, he might just need them.
