Kick-Off: 17:00 Local (16:00 BST) After Extra Time: (0-0 After 90 minutes) Portugal won 3-1 on Penalties Assistant referees: Darío García (Argentina) Rodolfo Otero (Argentina) Fourth official: Coffi Codjia (Benin) Fifth official: Aboudou Aderodjou (Benin) Man of the Match: Owen Hargreaves (England) England went out of the World Cup 3-1 on penalties after their quarter-final with Portugal ended 0-0. England lost skipper David Beckham to injury just after half-time and Wayne Rooney was sent off after 62 minutes for a stamp on Ricardo Carvalho. They battled on bravely for the rest of normal time and extra-time with 10 men to take the game to a shoot-out. But Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher missed to end their hopes and Sven-Goran Eriksson's reign. The Swede leaves his post as England coach after going out at the quarter-final stage of a major tournament for the third time in succession and now hands over to Steve McClaren. Eriksson had promised a big performance from his side but until Rooney's early exit it was not forthcoming. This was the third meeting between England and Portugal in the World Cup finals. England won in 1966 in England while Portugal won in 1986 in Mexico.

Comments:

PENALTY SHOOT-OUT DETAILS (England went second) 1 - Frank Lampard [Saved] 2 - Owen Hargreaves [Scored] 3 - Steven Gerrard [Saved] 4 - Jamie Carragher [Saved] This is the third time that England have been involved in a penalty shoot-out and they have lost them all. It is a record that is only matched by Italy. England have been involved in six penalty shoot-outs in major competitions. The only one they have won was against Spain in the quarter-finals of Euro '96 when the tournament was held in England. Following Ray Wilkins and David Beckham, Wayne Rooney becomes the third England player to be shown a straight red card in the World Cup finals. Due to the defeat, this was coach Sven-Goran Eriksson's last game in charge of England.

PENALTY SHOOT-OUT DETAILS (Portugal went first) 1 - Sabrosa Simão [Scored] 2 - Hugo Viana [Missed] 3 - Armando Petit [Missed] 4 - Helder Postiga [Scored] 5 - Cristiano Ronaldo [Scored] Portugal also beat England in the quarter-finals of the Euro 2004 championships in Portugal. Excluding the penalties, this was Portugal's first draw in their 17th match in the World Cup finals. Portugal reach the semi-finals of the World Cup for the second time. The first was in 1966 in England when they lost to England. Armando Petit will be unavailable for the semi-final due to suspension. Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scholari extends his record of winning all 12 of his games in the World Cup finals. He was also in charge of the Brazil team that knocked England out of the 2002 World Cup finals and the Portugal team that knocked England out of the Euro 2004 championships.
