Czech Republic goalkeeper Petr Cech has heaped praise on Cristiano Ronaldo, labelling him ‘one of the two best players’ in the world.

The Real Madrid ace powered a header past the custodian in the 79th minute to help Paulo Bento’s Portugal to a 1-0 win over the Czechs in the Euro 2012 quarter-finals.

Speaking after the match, Cech admitted Portugal were worthy winners and made no secret of his admiration for Ronaldo – whom he faced many times in England when the 27-year-old was at Manchester United.

“This is a not a good feeling for us tonight,” he told reporters after the game. “We lost, they were better and deserved to win.

“Ronaldo is one of the two best players in the world, and he proved it with that header. He is truly hard to stop.”

Portugal will face either Spain or France in the last four.
