Video: The goals and penalties from Portugal’s win over Poland

Portugal are through to the semi-finals of EURO 2016 after a penalty shoot out win over Poland at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille.

Robert Lewandowski finally got his first goal of the tournament when put the Poles ahead with the second fastest goal in European Championships history.


However, youngster Renato Sanchez levelled things up with a sweetly struck left footed effort in the 33rd minute.

Neither side could find the back of the net for the rest of the game, and extra time was also goalless so the contest went to penalties.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who was largely anonymous over the course of 120 minutes, stepped up first and put Portugal ahead.

Both sides were perfect from the spot until Jakub Blaszczykowski had his penalty saved by Rui Patricio, and Ricardo Quaresma kept his cool to seal his side’s spot in the final four.
