Portugal have a very good chance of advancing to the next round after a 3-1 win over the Czech Republic on Wednesday.
Playmaker Deco scored the opening goal for Scolari’s team after just eight minutes, but a header from Libor Sionko levelled the score nine minutes later.
From here on, the two teams were practically equal but it was Portugal to be the happier side at full time as Cristiano Ronaldo struck home from outside the penalty area in the 63rd minute and allowed substitute Quaresma to net his side’s third in stoppage time.
If Switzerland and Turkey draw their match later on Wednesday, Portugal are already certain of a spot in the next round.
The Czechs meanwhile, have to achieve a good result against Turkey on Sunday to earn their quarter final berth.
