    There was one second between the first shot on target (116:08) and the last shot on target (116:09). 

    Dramatic finish.

    RegularJohn: Well done Portugal. Croatia promised so much this tournament but couldn't keep the momentum going tonight.

    Yomi Adenuga: Went to brush my teeth and get ready for penalties and missed a goal. Typical! Should've only watched the last 5 mins.

    Croatia 0-1 Portugal

    It is really hard to take a man with red and white checks dyed into his hair crying seriously. Ivan Perisic is not alone, though. All of the Croatia players are devastated. 

    They came out of the group stage as one of the favourites to win this tournament. They leave it off the back of timid, conservative display in Lens.

    On the opposite end of the spectrum - the Portugal players are obviously delighted. If I was a Poland player, I wouldn't be getting any sleepless nights. And if they are, just watch this game again. Bang. Out like a light.

    Ricardo Quaresma scored the first goal in extra time at the Euros since Andrey Arshavin in 2008.

    That half of the draw - teams must be looking at it and thinking 'wow we have a great chance to make the final. Two hapless teams. Portugal got lucky.

    Adam Levitt: Suffer for 116 mins of dire football. Step away from the TV for 30 seconds and Portugal score. Figures.   

    GutA: What are you moaning about? I switch TV on and within 90sec saw a chance hit the post and a goal. Looks like a cracker! ;-)   


    Croatia 0-1 Portugal

    It was a game that didn't deserve a winner. Neither team was prepared to make any kind of risk to win it. But Portugal are the ones who progress, courtesy of that late Ricardo Quaresma goal.

    Croatia 0-1 Portugal

    Oh! So close! The initial free-kick is headed away but the ball is returned from the opposite side and pinballs around before Domagoj Vida hooks an effort just wide of the far post.

  11. Post update

    Croatia 0-1 Portugal

    Time is almost up. Croatia have a free-kick on the left.

    Pope Packard: I don't believe it!! Went to make a cup of tea to get me through pens. Typical.   

    Helles Mammut: Brilliant move by Cristiano Ronaldo, initiated the counter-attack with an opening pass and gave the assist at the other end.

    Khurshid Patel: 27 seconds between Croatia hitting post and Portugal scoring a goal. Electric Speed.

    Croatia 0-1 Portugal

    Croatia have been pedestrian all night, but suddenly they are absolutely desperate.

  14. 'Even in this game you can't miss that'

    This is unbelievable. The header at one end comes off the post, it goes up the other end and Ronaldo is one-on-one. It's an awful finish. The keeper palms it out and even in this game Quaresma from two yards out has to hit the target.

  15. GOAL - Croatia 0-1 Portugal

    Ricardo Quaresma

    Would. You. Believe. It.

    Not a shot on target for 115 painful minutes and then, from nowhere, we have one minute of madness that ends with Portugal scoring what is probably going to be the winner. Kalinic can't reach a cross across the face of goal before the men in red and white hit the post through a Perisic header. Portugal then immediately break and set up Ronaldo for a shot that is saved and then headed into the empty net by Ricardo Quaresma from point-blank range.

    Six minutes left. Then the sweet, blessed relief of a game-ending penalty shoot-out. I've spent happier times in a dentist's chair.

  17. Post update

    Croatia 0-0 Portugal

    Chance! A really good one as well. Croatia swing a corner to the back post and Portugal keeper Rui Patricio trips over his own defender to give Domagoj Vida an open goal to hit. The ball is just a touch too high, though, and he can't keep his header down. We still don't have a shot on target.

    Croatia 0-0 Portugal

    Nani goes for the spectacular with an acrobatic effort in the box but like everything else in this game he falls flat. On his backside. The ball spins off away from goal and is cleared.


    Croatia 0-0 Portugal

    Ivan Rakitic has been really disappointing. He is not alone of course. I only mention it because he's off, replaced by Marko Pjaca.

    They could genuinely sell the DVD of this game as an insomnia cure. There is nothing of any note happening.
