Euro 2016: Poland vs Portugal preview IBTimes UK

Agony for Poland, they are going home after a crucial penalty miss from Blaszczykowski. Portugal are still to beat a team inside 90 minutes in this competition, but they march into the semi-final.



After 120 minutes of football, Portugal progress after a 5-3 win on penalties. They will meet either Belgium or Wales in the semi-finals.


Goal! Portugal 5-3 Poland (Quaresma)

Quaresma drills straight down the middle and Portugal are in the semi-finals of Euro 2016!


Saved! Portugal 4-3 Poland

Blaszczykowski sees his effort saved! Patricio guesses the right way and palms it to safety.


Goal! Portugal 4-3 Poland (Nani)

A stuttered run up but a superb finish from the winger, sending the goalkeeper the wrong way.


Goal! Portugal 3-3 Poland (Gilik)

Like he did against Switzerland, the defender steps up and blasts it into the left hand corner.


Goal! Portugal 3-2 Poland (Moutinho)

The midfielder sends Fabianski the wrong way. Perfect from Portugal so far.


Goal! Portugal 2-2 Poland (Milik)

He looks nervous walking up but it's a fine penalty from the Polish striker into the corner.


Goal! Portugal 2-1 Poland (Renato Sanches)

Perfect. The 18-year-old lifts it into the top left hand corner.


Goal! Portugal 1-1 Ronaldo (Lewandowski)

Easy. Lewandowski, shimmies and rolls it into the right hand corner.


Goal! Portugal 1-0 Poland (Ronaldo)

Cool as you like, Ronaldo drills into the bottom corner.


Portugal will take the first penalty and it is Cristiano Ronaldo who's up...


And to penalties we go!


End of extra-time


Piszczek floats a dangerous ball into the box with Lewandowski poised to nod it towards goal but Pepe gets across him brilliantly to nod to safety.


Portugal had the cheek to rob of us of a penalty shoot out last Saturday when they scored a winner in the final minutes of extra time. Without tempting fate, it looks like that won't be the case tonight.


Kapustka nips onto a loose ball just inside the box ahead of Cedric and loops a hopeful ball across goal, but it's too high for any of his teammates to reach. Just five more minutes of this left.


Poland have the chance to break forward but Milik instead elects to wait and win the free kick on the edge of his own box.


The game comes to life as a pitch invader springs away from the stewards and races towards Ronaldo. He's finally tackled before he can touch the big man and carried off the pitch by security. I'm sure there's a joke about that being the best tackle or run we have seen tonight, but I'll leave it.


Here we go, only 15 more minutes of this. Then, penalties.


Any chance of skipping the second half of extra time and going straight to penalties?


Half-time in extra time


Piszczek suddenly charges forward menacingly down the inside right before shifting it wide to Lewandowski. He prods a terrific ball across the face of goal that is begging for a teammate to race onto it and slot home but it flies across the face of goal and out of play.


Cedric hurls a cross in from the right that Nani leaps onto, but he can't steer it on target and it rolls past the far post. Ronaldo, who was shaping to shoot behind his teammate, gives him daggers.
