Portugal Vs. Bosnia, Euro 2012 Qualifying Playoffs: Portugal Lead 2-1 At Half-Time

Portugal lead 2-1 at half time then. It's been a strange game, with both teams looking very dangerous at either end of the pitch but with the ball spending most of the time in the middle. Bosnia, as you might expected, have been utilising their considerable strength and power in attack, which Portugal have struggled to cope with after Dzeko hit the bar with a header and Coentrao being muscled off the ball led to the penalty.

At the other end, however, Portugal's pace has troubled the Bosnians, but it's from two stunners that they've built their lead - Cristiano Ronaldo's inch-perfect free kick and Nani's superb dipping effort from range. But this one is far from over. Another goal is all the Bosnians need to see them through to the Euros. Both teams have plenty of options on the bench, so it'll be interesting to see if there are any changes.
