Boa Noite

If you want to watch the highlights on a television set, rather than the ones in my last link, then get yourself over to BBC One at 23:30 BST tonight. 

I'm going to leave you here now.

Check out the match report for tonight's game here.

And tomorrow we have live TV, radio and text coverage of Wales' tie with Belgium. The winners of that game face Portugal.

Portugal into semi-finals

The first half was a classic, the second less so. If you missed the whole 120 minutes you can watch the best of it here.

Poland and Portugal entered extra time for the second time at Euro 2016 – the last teams to do be in extra time twice at same Euros were France and Italy in 2000.

Only the Netherlands (7) have played more extra time game at the Euros than Portugal (6).

Robert Lewandowski scored the second quickest goal ever at the Euros (one minute and 40 seconds). Only Dmitri Kirichenko’s goal for Greece for Russia in 2004 was quicker (01:05).

Robbie Brady's penalty for the Republic of Ireland against France on Sunday (1:58) lasted four days as the second fastest European Championship goal.

Poland's opener ended a wait of 645 minutes for Lewandowski without scoring at the Euros, last scoring against Greece in 2012 (his first appearance in the tournament).

Portugal have won three of their four shootouts at major tournaments - winning twice against England and losing to Spain. 

Renato Sanches became the youngest player to score in a knockout game at the Euros ever (18y 316d), and the third youngest overall to score in Euros history (behind Johan Volanthen and Wayne Rooney).  

Nani has been involved in 50% of Portugal’s goals at this tournament (two goals and one assist).

James Liggins: Ugh, why did Portugal have to get through? They've drawn every game but they're in the last 4?! Not right.

Diego Suarez: Portugal might not play pretty football but they are solid at the back, they got a massive chance getting to the final now.

Sarah Morgan: Where's the Portuguese tradition of fast, attacking football gone? I've not found a team so boring since Greece in 2004 Euros.

Portugal into semi-finals

If you missed the penalty shootout you can see Rui Patricio's great save again here.

Portugal have become the first team to reach a European Championship semi-final without winning a game in 90 minutes.

This is the fifth time they have reached the semi-finals in their seven European Championship appearances.

Only Luis Figo (5) has more assists in European Championship games than Nani (4).

You can watch highlights of this game at 23:30 BST on BBC One. 

My advice is watch the first half, go and get yourself a beer while the second half and extra time are on and then watch the penalties.

Although I can't imagine my TV colleagues will find many highlights to show from those periods of football.

Pepe looks happy hugging his children on the sidelines. Who would have known he was capable of a human emotion bar anger?

Renato Sanches showed why Bayern Munich were so keen to get him on board for next season with a pearler of a goal. His first in international football as well. You can watch the equalising goal for Portugal here.

Josh Cobb: They should make them all shoot from the halfway line

Alex Haworth: Portugal might win a game of football one day.

Joe Wedgwood: Portugal surely the worst team to make it to a Euro semis for a long, long time? Everyone else should hammer them.

Fair play to Portugal for reaching the semi-finals, but I'm not sure I've seen them play very well yet. 

They will face either Belgium or Wales next Wednesday in Lyon.

The quarter-final between the Belgians and Welsh is tomorrow in Lille. Live on BBC One.

'Portugal have to play better'

Portugal into semi-finals

Chris Waddle

Former England winger on BBC Radio 5 live

Good luck to Portugal but you've got to play better than this to win a tournament. 

It was a very good save in the shootout from Rui Patricio, he read it. It was such a high standard but somebody had to miss. Portugal have got three wingers playing and they never went past people at all. They are relying on an 18-year-old to take people on. The ran out of ideas, they are very fortunate to be where they are.

Robert Lewandowski looks devastated. All of Poland's players do. Will they ever have a better chance to reach a European Championship semi-final?

Kamil Glik

A slow walk up to the spot by the defender. And then a long run-up. And he POWERS it home. Great penalties so far.

Excellent kick. Bottom corner.

Ronaldo is loudly whistled as he steps up. Doesn't bother him though and he sends the keeper the wrong way.

Portugal will go first. The penalties are being taken at the Poland end. And Cristiano Ronaldo goes first...

'Boredom cards'

Chris Waddle

There should be boredom cards, if you get two you get punished. 

Poland 1-1 Portugal

Poland could become the first team in European Championship history to win two games by penalties consecutively.

Either that or Portugal will reach the semi-finals without winning a single game in 90 minutes.

Lukasz Piszczek tries to deny us our penalties but his shot is well over. One minute added on.

The last minute of a European Championship quarter-final and I'm genuinely bored. Still we'll have penalties soon.

Poland 1-1 Portugal

Poland put a cross into the box. Is this the moment? No.

Pepe does well to head it clear for Portugal with Robert Lewandowski flying in behind him.

The Iberians then break but Renato Sanches is tackled on the edge of the box.

Poland 1-1 Portugal

The first half of this game was good. Although I can barely remember it now. Etched on my brain now is the following 75 minutes of nothingness.

Poland midfielder Bartosz Kapustka plays a cross in which goes over everyone. The fact I'm telling you that tells its own story. Basically nothing is happening.

The fear factor has come in, there's no ambition from either team. They don't want to make a mistake. They might as well be playing walking football.

Lots of police around the crowd now trying to make sure there's no repeat of that.

That should never happen. how many security can you see? There are stewards everywhere, so many police. That should never happen. This tournament has had a lot of problems.

The game eventually starts with a drop ball that is played back to Poland keeper Lukasz Fabianski.

A pitch invader comes onto the pitch and goes near Cristiano Ronaldo. It doesn't look like he's wearing trousers. He's chased and eventually rugby tackled by security staff.
