Ronaldo Propels Portugal into Semis
Posted: Jun 21, 2012
Cristiano Ronaldo fired Portugal into the semi-finals of Euro 2012 after his diving header disposed of Czech Republic 1-0 in Warsaw.
The Real Madrid forward had twice hit the woodwork and seen his side have a goal chalked out for offside before he arrived on cue in the six-yard box to nod in Joao Moutinho's cross on 79 minutes.
The Czechs - with captain Tomas Rosicky, the Arsenal midfielder, only on the bench because of an Achilles injury - had started brightly, but lacked a decisive move in the final third.
