Euro 2016: Portugal Reach Semis Without Winning a Game

Portugal has qualified for the Euro 2016 Semi-Finals for the sixth time, more than any other international side, after beating Poland on penalties after the teams drew 1-1 after 120-minutes of football.

Portugal will face Belgium or Wales for a place in the final of Euro 2016 despite failing to win a single match in 90-minutes throughout the entire tournament.

In 90-minutes of football, Fernando Santos’s side has drawn against Iceland, Austria, Hungary, and Croatia, at these finals. A last minute header from Ricardo Quaresma sealing the win in a dreadful Round of 16 tie against Croatia, and he was the hero once more scoring the winning penalty in another lacklustre Euro 2016 tie.

Poland came into the match with only one defeat in their last 13 games. Unlike Portugal, they had a few wins under their belt after beating Northern Ireland and Ukraine in the group matches. They defeated Switzerland in the Round of 16 via a penalty shoot out.
