Then it was a hardy play-off for both teams, especially the Dutch, but Torbinsky and Arshavin scored goals, effectively put an end to the match. Arshavin was declared the Man of the Match.

Now it will be the first major semi final for Russia since the break up of the USSR.

Portugal all but secured a spot on the quarter-finals of the UEFA Euro 2008 yesterday, defeating the Czechs 3-1. This is the team’s second consecutive victory in the championship.

Portugal took an early lead in minute eight when Deco scored after two attempts. The score was equalled by the Czechs in minute 17 when Sionko headed in from a corner. Portugal then retook the lead when Ronaldo low-drived the ball into the goal after a pass from Deco. Regulation time ended, and three minutes were added, giving the Czechs a chance to equal the score, but all hope was lost when Quaresma scored one minute later, after receiving a pass from Ronaldo.

Portugal, as the winner of Group A, will kick off the knockout stage by playing the runner up from Group B in the quarter-finals on June 19.

UEFA Euro 2008: Błaszczykowski injury damages Poland’s Euro 2008 hopes

Friday, June 6, 2008

The Polish national team’s right winger Jakub Błaszczykowski was ruled out of the Euro 2008 soccer championships late on June 5, less than three days before Poland is to take on Germany in its tournament opener. Błaszczykowski, who in his club career plays for Borussia Dortmund, renewed a hamstring strain he suffered in mid-season.

His withdrawal leaves Poland’s coach Leo Beenhakker with a serious selection headache to solve. So far he has not said how he would patch the resulting hole in his right wing.

England failed to qualify for UEFA Euro 2008 after a 2-3 defeat to Croatia at Wembley Stadium, London.

Needing to avoid defeat to secure qualification, England got off to a bad start as Niko Kranjčar’s shot came off goalkeeper Scott Carson to give Croatia the lead after just eight minutes. Soon afterwards Ivica Olić doubled Croatia’s lead.

England scored when Josip Šimunić pulled back Jermaine Defoe, with Frank Lampard converting the resulting penalty. David Beckham, winning his 99th cap for England, set up Peter Crouch who equalised with a volley. However Croatia continued to push England back, and substitute Mladen Petrić scored the winner from 25 metres with just under fifteen minutes remaining.

Croatia finished at the top in Group E, while Russia also qualified after their 1-0 victory over . England finished third in the group, missing out on their first major tournament since the 1994 World Cup. Manager Steve McClaren’s job is in doubt, having been criticised during the qualification campaign and dropping regular goalkeeper Paul Robinson in favour of newcomer Scott Carson for the vital final match.

Wales held Germany to a goalless draw in their final match of UEFA Euro 2008 qualifying at the Commerzbank Arena, Frankfurt am Main.

Despite starting strongly, Wales had few chances on goal with Carl Fletcher sending a shot wide of the post. The best opportunities for Germany came when Tim Borowski’s attempt hit the post after fourteen minutes and Mario Gomez’s header went just wide. However Wales’ defence held and the match remained goalless.

The result of this match had no effect on qualification, as the fates of both teams had been sealed beforehand. Germany had already secured qualification from Group D, while Wales could not qualify. Germany finish second in the group, behind the Czech Republic who claimed first place after a 2-0 victory in Cyprus. Wales finished fifth in the group, behind Slovakia and ahead of Cyprus.
