WARSAW (Sporting Alert) — Germany and Portugal have qualified for the quarter-finals of the Euro 2012 following wins in the last round of matches in the “group of death.”
Cristiano Ronaldo, who hit the post twice on the night, scored both goals for Portugal in their 2-1 win over the Netherlands, who were dumped from the tournament without a point.
Rafael van der Vaart has given the Netherlands the early lead in the 11th minute, but it was all Ronaldo and Portugal from there on.
The Portuguese will now move on to face the Czech Republic, while Germany, who defeated Denmark 2-1 in the other match will face Greece.
Lukas Podolski and Lars Bender scored for Germany, while Michael Krohn-Dehli netted for the Danes.
