    Cristiano Ronaldo proved the difference in a very cagey encounter under the roof of the national stadium in Warsaw after he was rewarded for a persistent testing of Petr Cech’s goal, hitting the post twice before stooped to meet a cross from Joao Moutinho eleven minutes from time to send Portugal into the semi-finals of Euro 2012. Czech Republic battled hard but rarely threatened Rui Patricio’s goal in what was a defensive display for the majority of the game, and there was no doubting that the better side had edged the first of the quarter finals.

    France surrendered their 22 match unbeaten record with a slow, disjointed performance in Kiev that will have Laurent Blanc concerned about his sides chances of going past the quarter-final stage of this tournament. France will now play Spain as they finished runners-up in Group B thanks to this defeat to a Swedish side that had already been eliminated.

    Despite the French sporadically threatening in a nervy affair, the Swedes had the majority of the chances and took the lead through a superb Zlatan Ibrahimovic volley shortly after half-time, before Sebastian Larsson sealed the win in the final stages of the match. Whilst the result restored a great deal of pride to a poor tournament for Erik Hamren’s men, the French will head into Saturday’s difficult encounter with Spain facing questions over their mentality after limping through the group stage.
