Finally we get some goal mouth action with Croatia hitting the post and then Portugal scoring on the breakaway.

The last 5 minutes had more action than the previous 115 minutes. Don't think too many people would have given Portugal a chance based on the form of the two sides. Not for the first time, the side that looked so impressive during the group phase goes straight out in the knockout round.

Poland v. Portugal is a 50/50. Neither side was particularly impressive today.

This side of the draw has gone rather quickly from a great opportunity for the minnows to a bit of an embarrassment given the turgid victories for the more favoured sides. I shudder to think that one of them (read Portugal) will be in the final.

Well, I was very wrong about the goal quantity.

I had a bad feeling about Croatia from the moment I saw Perisic's head. It looked like over-confidence.

I can't find the words about Croatia and Portugal.. So happy for Quaresma, he finally scored goal he needed so much..
