Ronaldo guides Portugal to Semi-finals

Captain Cristiano Ronaldo capped a magnificent display with the match-winning goal as Portugal powered past Czech Republic and into the semi-finals of Euro 2012.
Ronaldo, who scored twice against the Netherlands, hit the woodwork in each half with fine strikes.

And he finally found the net with 12 minutes remaining, thumping a header into the ground and beyond Petr Cech.
Czech Republic failed to muster a shot on target as they rarely threatened throughout a tense evening.

Portugal will play against Spain or France in last four and the captain believes his side are ready to book their place in the final of Euro 2012.

He said: "Our great aim is to get to the final. We have a great squad and now I'd say the chances are 50-50 and we just have to believe.
"We are very mature, so we are ready for the fight."
