Portugal Vs. Spain, Euro 2012 Semifinals: Match Underway

We're up at running at the Donbass Arena in the Ukraine, where Spain are taking on Portugal for the right to advance to the Euro 2012 final. Spain, obviously, are the favourites, but many think that the time is ripe for an upset of Vincente del Bosque's incredible foray into the depths of footballing ennui. And who better to do that than that epitome of brutal individuality, Cristiano Ronaldo?

Spain kick us off, but give the ball away almost immediately and Portugal can go on a rather cautious attack. They're naturally worried about opening up too much space behind their lines which Spain can exploit, so they're being very intelligent with the ball. Eventually they win a pair of corners - you'd have to think they're a major threat on set pieces - but Iker Casillas can claim the second and any danger is averted.
