Ricardo Quaresma headed in a 117th-minute winner as Portugal reached the Euro 2016 quarter-finals with a 1-0 victory over Croatia after extra time in Lens.
It was the first time either goalkeeper had been remotely threatened by either side who both struggled to create chances and the fact the Portuguese are into the last eight having not yet won a match in 90 minutes speaks volumes about the quality on show.
|Perisic's hairstyle brought the only excitement in a very boring 90 minutes of football|
Cristiano Ronaldo cut a peripheral figure throughout until a quick counter-attack immediately after Ivan Perisic headed against the foot of a post saw his shot – the first on target all evening was saved by Daniel Subasic only to pop up to Quaresma two yards out.
Even the goal had an element of luck as it looked like it was a mis-hit shot from Nani which fortuitously found its way to Ronaldo, who put in yet another disappointing performance at this tournament.
