Cristiano Ronaldo led Portugal to victory over the Netherlands with a phenomenal performance and a brace that qualified them to the quarterfinals of the Euro 2012 as runners-up in their group. Pepe and Coentrao gave perfect performances in defence and helped cancel out the Dutch attack. Portugal will face the Czech Republic in the quarterfinals on Thursday at 20:45 CET.
