Cristiano Ronaldo´s sweet second-half strike helped Portugal all but secure a Euro 2008 quarter-final berth on Wednesday as Luiz Felipe Scolari´s team beat Czech Republic 3-1 at the Stade de Geneve.

The Manchester United star coolly slotted home after being teed up by Deco shortly after the hour to put the Portuguese in the lead for a second time, Libor Sionko having cancelled out Deco´s opener.

Substitute Ricardo Quaresma put matters absolutely beyond doubt in stoppage time when he tapped home from Ronaldo´s pass.
