Euro 2012 Coming on June 27 2012 Semi Finals
Here we are, the Euro 2012 semifinals, and Portugal and Spain are sure to give us a clash worthy of remembering for years to come.
We have all the ingredients for a dynamic battle: superstars, team chemistry and a wealth of supporting players who can swing momentum to their side with one brilliant, thudding play.
Here are the game-changers who will determine the outcome, one way or another. The action starts at 2:45 ET on Wednesday, airing on ESPN and ESPN3.
Yeah, I know, a shocker, right? Cristiano Ronaldo failed to score in Portugal's first two matches. Then, he showed why he's one of the best players in the world.
When Portugal needed him the most, in the final group stage match against the Netherlands and in the quarterfinals against the Czech Republic, Ronaldo scored a combined three goals. Without those three goals, Portugal wouldn't have won either match. He's getting more opportunities at the net and making them count. At the rate Ronaldo's going, anything is possible for Portugal.
