Kick-off: 9.00pm local (8.00pm BST) With two teams packed with outstanding players, there was every reason to believe this would be an exceptional game. It was. Exceptionally abysmal. Littered with niggly free-kicks and barely any goalmouth incident, just as a penalty shoot-out seemed inevitable, the contest suddenly burst in to life in the 117th minute. After an Ivan Perisic header hit their post, Portugal raced up to the other end of the pitch and, after Cristiano Ronaldo had the encounter's first shot on target, substitute Ricardo Quaresma converted the loose ball from a yard out for the vital winner. This is thought to be the first game in the history of the European Championship finals that didn't have a shot on target in the opening 90 minutes. On the night that Nani made his 100th appearance for his country, for the sixth consecutive Euros finals, Portugal had reached the quarter-finals.
