Euro 2012 quarterfinals: Portugal 1, Czech Republic 0

Ronaldo’s goal deserves a cute elephant with a soccer ball picture!

Cristiano Ronaldo’s million-dollar haircut headed Portugal into a semifinal meeting with either Spain or France with a 1-0 win over a very, very lackluster Czech Republic. Clearly the Czechs were playing for penalties, and they were just, oh, 40 minutes short. Nice try, guys. Portugal outshot them 19-2 and probably should’ve won by three or four goals (Ronaldo hit the post twice). Now we’re at the point where I can start spouting cliches about anything being possible at the Euros and so on. This Portugal team is decent, though they’ll have to ride their luck (and hope Ronaldo keeps scoring) to beat the likes of Spain and France.

Man of the match: Ronaldo. There is no denying his ability to score goals, even if he occasionally does so in an extremely whiny, petulant manner. He now has three in the tourney.

Tomorrow: Germany vs. Greece, 11:45 a.m., ESPN
