A record?

There could well be seven players starting tomorrow whose first language is Portugese.

Jô, Elano and Robinho for City.

Bosingwa, Carvalho, Deco and Belletti for Chelsea.

Don't forget Glauber (and Gelson!) on the City bench (and Paolo Ferreira on Chelsea's), and the whole Chelsea coaching team.

I make no claim to any insight or deeper point here, it is merely an interesting coincidence.

Can anyone find me an English league match with more Portugese speakers involved?

UPDATE 1.50 Gelson Fernades is from Cape Verde, the official language of which I don't need to tell you...
