Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    There is no nation better at rising to the big occasion than Germany and yet again they pull off a notable result to make it to the semi-finals.

    87

    A huge moment for Portugal and now we have a real game on our hands. Mertesacker is wrong-footed and Cristiano Ronaldo gallops into the box. Lehmann denies him but the ball breaks to Nuno Gomes who sweeps it into the net to the despair of Metzelder who managed to get a boot on the shot.

    Portugal are made to pay the ultimate price for João Moutinho's miss as the Germany winger opens the scoring.
