Congratulations on this highly emotional victory. Can you analyse the match?

Cristiano Ronaldo: It was very difficult, as befitting a quarter-final. Poland did well – they have a strong team and play good football. They're a very intense team, they're physical and experienced, but I think Portugal were better and created more chances.

Penalties are always a lottery, but Portugal took their penalties better and were worthy winners.

Now come the semi-finals. Any prediction who will win between Wales and Belgium? And which team would you prefer to play?

Ronaldo: Both are very difficult. Wales have had an excellent tournament. Belgium are also a very dangerous team that have done well with some good results. Either team would be complicated.

Our objective was for Portugal to win. I want to congratulate my colleagues, our coach and technical team; we all did a fantastic job. Now on to the next opponent who we will prepare for and we will give our all.
