Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Andy Brassell, National Stadium Warsaw: Portugal got there in the end, grinding down a valiant Czech Republic side. Cristiano Ronaldo always looked the most likely source of a goal and so it proved, with him finally winning his duel with the excellent Petr Čech. Neither France or Spain - Portugal's prospective semi-final opponents - will relish facing Paulo Bento's side with the bit between its teeth.
