Pre-match build-up:

England fans flocked into Lisbon's Stadium of Light in their thousands as Sven-Goran Eriksson's side went in search of victory in the Euro 2004 quarter-final against Portugal.

Portugal - as hosts - had been expected to have the majority of fans inside the 65,000-capacity stadium, but England were backed by almost as many supporters.

Fans of both countries arrived hours before the game, which has captured the imagination of Portugal after they beat Spain.

England named an unchanged side, with Wayne Rooney the name on everybody's lips.

Everton's 18-year-old striker has been the star of the tournament and England were hoping for more of the same as they attempted to reach the semi-final.

Temperatures had risen throughout the day after a cloudy start, which will have disappointed England, who would have preferred the cooler conditions.

But it was a perfect night for football, and supporters mixed in a friendly and colourful atmosphere prior to kick-off.

Team news:

England name an unchanged line-up for the third consecutive game.

David Beckham and John Terry are fit after recovering from knocks they picked up in the win over Croatia.

Defender Ledley King misses the game after his girlfriend went into labour on Thursday morning.

He was given permission to fly back to England to be with her, and will return to Lisbon if England reach the semi-finals.

Portugal make one change, with Nuno Gomes replacing the suspended Pauleta in attack.

Portugal: Ricardo, Miguel, Jorge Andrade, Ricardo Carvalho, Nuno Valente, Costinha, Maniche, Luis Figo, Deco, Cristiano Ronaldo, Nuno Gomes.

England: James, G Neville, A Cole, Terry, Campbell; Lampard, Gerrard, Beckham, Scholes; Rooney, Owen.

Referee: Urs Meier (Switzerland)
