Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    John Atkin, Arena Lviv: Mario Gomez's header is enough to see Germany past Portugal, who hit the woodwork twice before being denied late on by last-gasp blocks from Manuel Neuer and Holger Badstuber. Neither team was at their best, but Germany were deadlier when it counted. Gomez was frustrated for long periods but showed his quality when it mattered.

    The referee blows for half-time.
    John Atkin, Arena Lviv: The first half burst into life in the dying moments as Pepe's effort looked destined to put Portugal ahead, before rattling the crossbar.

  • 45
