Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    It's all over - Gedson Fernandes has scored the only goal of a tight semi-final and Portugal are through to take on England or the Czech Republic in Gori on Saturday!
  • Substitution
    90+6
    Florentino (in) - Quina (out) (Portugal)
    Some in the crowd - and on the pitch - think it's the final whistle but in fact it's one last change for Portugal.
  • Yellow Card
    89
    Kemper (Netherlands) is shown a yellow card.
    A first yellow card of the match, after a challenge that leaves Portugal's No18 needing treatment.
  • Substitution
    83
    Miguel Luis (in) - João Filipe (out) (Portugal)
    Another change for Portugal, as they look to shore up midfield and protect this slender advantage.
  • Substitution
    78
    Grot (in) - Nunnely (out) (Netherlands)
    A late throw of the dice by Maarten Stekelenburg, with the powerful NEC Nijmegen striker coming on for the last 12 minutes.
