We bring you in one single and unique document the entire history of UEFA EURO 2016 in France, from the group stage matches through the Last 16, with match reports, results, players and scorers.

Poland 1 Portugal 1

Lewandowski (2)

                Renato Sanches (33)

Portugal had more of the first half after Lewandowski's shock opening goal for Poland on 2 minutes, having ten shots against Poland's five, 6 shots saved (against 2) while ball possession was shared (53/47 to Poland). Apart from the goals (Renato Sanches' equalizer on 33' was a brilliant effort, turning and shooting getting a deflection) and on the half-hour Cristiano Ronaldo deserved to get a penalty after being pushed over in the area by Pazdan.

After the break, Portugal continued to press with seven shots against three, two of them saved, with the same ball possession. But the 90 minutes showed the same result, a 1-1 draw. Fernando Santos had switched two players, the impressive Ricardo Quaresma entering for João Mário after João Moutinho had substituted Adrien Silva, while Adam Nawalka had sent on the 19-year-old Kapusta for Grosicki, trying to stem the Portuguese tide, maintaining attacking capacity but reinforcing a holding midfield.

Extra time. A cautious game, some half-chances for both sides but the risk of conceding and not having time to score weighs heavily on both sides.

Penalties. Cristiano Ronaldo 1-0. Lewandowski 1-1. Renato Sanches 2-1. Milik 2-2. João Moutinho 3-2. Glik 3-3. Nani 4-3. Blaszczykowski fails. Quaresma scores 5-3. Portugal is in the semi-finals
