In the second round of the UEFA cup, Portugal is playing the Czech Republic, and Little Portugal (which is pretty big, truth be told) is teeming with Portugal supporters. This van parked on a vacant lot on College Street is selling mostly Portuguese flags, but a few other UEFA teams are represented as well.
One big change I’ve noticed this tournament: Canadian flags are hanging along side Portugal and Azores flags on porches for the first time.
