Andres Iniesta was the hero in extra time during Spain's 2010 World Cup win. He was nearly the hero here as well. Spain finally decide to play some brilliant football, ripping Portugal open down the left before the always-excellent Jordi Alba bursts down the byline and cuts the ball back for Iniesta. His shot, while on target, was not hit quite hard enough, and Rui Patricio pulls off an absolutely superb stop, preventing what really should have been a goal.
Spain are looking pretty good now, and Sergio Ramos comes close to scoring via free kick, the ball blazed juuuuust over the crossbar from 35 yards. But if they're going to score, it'll have to be very quickly - there are only fifteen minutes left to play before we end up getting penalties.
