Portugal fans and neutrals hoping for a splash edition of the
Cristiano Ronaldo roadshow had their appetite satisfied as he
single-handedly steered his country into the Uefa Euro 2012™ semifinals

Ronaldo showed the same kind of sparkle that saw the Portugal captain
dominate play and claim a brace in his team's 2-1 defeat of the

So often maligned for failing to recapture his Real Madrid form when
wearing the Portugal shirt, Ronaldo's 79th-minute header took his Euro
2012 tally to three, making him joint top scorer with Germany's Mario
Gomez - plus Russia's Alan Dzagoev and Croatia's Mario Mandzukic, whose
teams failed to advance from the group stage.
