Czech Republic take on Portugal on Thursday 21st June, 2012, with kickoff at 19:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BBC1.

Given the pre-tournament expectations for Portugal, Paulo Bento and his side will be relatively pleased with their eventual outcome and fate. Drawn alongside the Netherlands and Germany, the Portuguese weren’t given much hope of making the quarters, but now they have done so and landed a fairly decent draw against the Czech Republic.

The Czechs themselves will be slightly surprised to be here, given that Russia were fully expected to win their group, but the Czech squad have played for each other and committed to the dream. Having got this far there is no reason for them to believe they can’t go further.
