Ronaldo keeps Portuguese dream alive

Cristiano Ronaldo’s header proved to be the difference for Portugal in last night’s Euro 2012 quarter-final against the Czech Republic.

Widely regarded as one of the best two footballers on the planet, ‘CR7’ did his reputation no harm with a brilliant performance that included two strikes of the woodwork.

Petr Cech was in fine form for the Czechs, who progressed as Group A winners but were ultimately out of their depth against Paolo Bento’s side in Warsaw.

Portugal came agonisingly close to glory at Euro 2004, losing out to Greece on home soil in a final to forget for Ronaldo & Co.

Eight years on, and the Real Madrid superstar has an air of maturity about him, an attitude that players want to copy rather than rebel against and, most importantly, the ability to change a game in a moment.

With raw pace, skills and plenty of step-overs in the locker, Ronlado just loves twisting defenders inside out, and will hope to do so again against either Spain or France in the semi-final.
