Portugal Seal Q/Final Spot With Quaresma’s Late Goal Vs Croatia

Ricardo Quaresma's late goal in extra-time secured a 1-0 win and a quarter-finals berth for Portugal against Croatia in a lacklustre round of 16 clash of the Euro 2016.

The game which was played in Lens, saw substitute Quaresma head into an empty net on 117 minutes after Cristiano Ronaldo's initial shot was saved by Croatia's keeper.

Croatia came close to taking the lead prior to Portugal's goal but Ivan Perisic header hit the post.

It was Portugal's first win of the Euro 2016 after drawing all their three group games.

They will now meet Poland, conquerors of Switzerland via penalties, in the quarter-final.
