Poland 1-1 Portugal (3-5 pens)
In the opening fixture of the Euro 2016 Quarter-finals, eighteen year old Renato Sanches scored a screaming equalizer for Portugal after veteran Poland superstar Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring for Poland.
For the fourth time in five tournaments, Portugal went through to the semi-final of the UEFA European Championships. Portugal have reached the Semi-finals without winning a single game in normal time following three draws in a group in which they finished third and an extra-time win over Croatia in the Round of16. No other team has ever gone this far in a European Championship without winning a match inside 90 minutes.
The match between Portugal v Poland went into overtime and ended in a 1-1 draw leading to a penalty shootout win against Poland. Ricardo Quaresma scored the winning penalty after Jakub Blaszczykowski's effort was saved by Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio. Quaresma also scored Portugal's extra-winner winner against Croatia in the last 16.
High-scoring Poland striker Robert Lewandowski gave Poland the early lead in only the second minute with Portugal youngster Renato Sanches equalizing.
Portugal's semi-final opponent will be either Wales or Belgium depending upon the outcome of Friday’s match between Wales and Belgium at Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Lille.
In the shoot-out, Cristiano Ronaldo, Sanches and Joao Moutinho scored for Portugal, with Lewandowski, Arkadiusz Milik and Kamil Glik scored for Poland – all getting past the goalies. Nani put Portugal 4-3 ahead then Patricio dived full length to his left to deflect Blaszczykowski's effort before Quaresma's winner found the roof of the net.
Cristiano Ronaldo led in the shootout for Portugal, firing home the first penalty with confidence.
Both Ronaldo and Lewandowski spent much the match being frustrated. At the start of the clash, Lewandowski scored the second fastest goal in Euros history and ended his goal-drought in this competition.
Teenage “Man of the Match” Sanches.only made his first-team debut for Benfica in November. Since then claimed a Spanish Primeira Liga winners' medal and agreed to join Bayern Munich for £27.5m. The eighteen year old now has a full-debut international goal to his name, making him the youngest goal-scorer in the knockout stages of a European Championship.
Sanches is the youngest football player in history to score in a knockout game at the Euros, and the third youngest overall to score in Euros history behind Volanthen and Rooney.
"It is a wonderful moment for the team and for me for scoring. We have been working very hard and we have been doing our best. People criticise us but we don't care because we are in the semis," said Sanches after the match.
Poland coach Adam Nawalka said the loss was tough for his side:
"It's definitely a tough moment for us. The players put a lot of heart into this match and played bravely throughout this tournament. We haven't lost a match - we were knocked out on penalties,” said Nawalka. “We have to look with optimism to the future and the European qualifiers. There will soon be time for detailed analysis but this defeat hurts."
This is the fifth time Portugal have reached a Euro semi-final (1984, 2000, 2004, 2012, 2016).
