Portugal 1-1 Poland (Portugal win 5-3 on penalties)

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski opened his account for the tournament and opened the scoring in the first quarter final, but it was to no avail as his new Bayern Munich teammate Renato Sanches levelled the scores before the break. There were to be no more goals during normal, or extra time, meaning the teams went into the dreaded penalty shootout. The scores were 4-3 to Portugal when, Jakub Blaszcykowski’s spot kick was saved by Rui Patricio. Ricardo Quaresma settled the match to send Portugal through to the semi final.
