    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.

    How the teams got to this stage

    Czech Republic have recovered from their opening day humiliation to Russia where they were beaten 4-1, to become one of the more impressive units in the group stages. Boss Mikael Bilek restored midfield lynchpin David Hubschmann to the starting line-up after he was left out of the first game and it was his cultured passing that earned a 2-1 win over Greece, before Petr Jiracek’s goal edged a nervy encounter with Poland that eliminated the hosts and sent a promising Czech side into the quarter finals from group A.
