Minute 15: Whether Portugal are nervous or just lacking concentration, they don’t seem to be in sync with each other yet as many passes fail to arrive.

Minute 10: Hitzlsperger tries a shot from a seemingly impossible angle but it does actually come dangerously close to the goal.

Minute 9: Germany have a free kick at about 37 meters but Hitzlsperger hits the only player in the ‘wall’, Deco.

Minute 6: Germany enjoy most of the possession in the opening phase but no chances yet up til now.

Minute 2: The German line-up for this game includes Simon Rolfes. The Bayer Leverkusen player replaces the injured Torsten Frings.

Kick-off: The match has started. This is the real thing!

Pre-match: We couldn’t have wished for a better first quarter final, with 2004 runners-up Portugal facing 1996 champions Germany. Our referee tonight is Swedish Peter Fröjdfeldt and the weather is perfect for football at 22 degrees Celsius.
