We're in the quarter-finals!

Helen and some happy Portuguese fans

We're through the group stages and into the quarter-finals, already!!!

Portugal's 3-1 win over the Czech Republic has secured their place in the next round of the competition.

After taking the lead early on Portugal kept me on the edge of my seat for a long time.

Deco scored to put us ahead, but then less than 10 minutes later the Czech Republic equalised.

Portugal didn't go back in front until the 63rd minute when Ronaldo scored his first of the competition.

There's been a lot of hype about the Manchester United winger.

Good results

He lived up to his reputation as one of the best players in the world in the dying minutes of the game when he set up Quaresma who scored Portugal's third.

Even though Portugal have another game to play against Switzerland on Sunday, because the other results in our group have gone in our favour we're through to the quarter finals. Brilliant!!!
