Scolari: Portugal will stay focused

Published Add your comment

Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has warned Switzerland his team do not intend to take their foot off the gas in their final Group A match on Sunday despite having already guaranteed a last-eight berth at Euro 2008.

Second-half goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Ricardo Quaresma - the latter in stoppage time - clinched a 3-1 victory for the Portuguese against Czech Republic on Wednesday night after Libor Sionko had cancelled out Deco´s early opener.

The win ensured a quarter-final spot for Scolari´s team but the Brazilian tactician - who was confirmed as Chelsea manager for next season after the match - wants the winning trend to continue saying: "We have got to give our all during these Euros. We must be realistic. We are playing very good teams and small details make a difference."
