Portugal Go To The Euro 2012! The Portugal qualifies for the Euro 2012 after leaving Bosnia in a dam that held all its promises (6-2). Ronaldo and Postiga were great artisans of Lusitania qualification. The Eire, Czech Republic and Croatia also pass. Portugal will see Poland and Ukraine in June. But it will have to fight to the end face of the dam Bosnia catchy but too shy in the first period. And it cost him dear. For the selection has not been crushed by the pressure boiling point of a popular de la Luz.
After the disappointment of going 0-0, the Portuguese were determined to start a lawn with a bang, this time, in excellent condition. After a first attempt rejected by Begovic (5th), Ronaldo launched the festival in the fault finding on a superb free kick from 30 meters float (1-0, 8th). A new author with a beautiful free kick, this time boxing Begovic (22nd), the player Real let Nani then take care to double the lead with a fine shot from distance (2-0, 24th). What literally knock the Bosnians choked on the lawn of the Luz stadium.
Almost Corrections on a whim to Alves, above (32nd), or action Moutinho, though aborted by the defender Jahic (38th), the Bosnians were doing miraculously getting a penalty shortly before pause, listed by Misimovic (2-1, 41st). But still much dominated after the break, the visitors left a sign Ronaldo doubled the Portuguese star enjoying a misalignment opponent (3-1, 54th). A goal hotly contested by Lulic, who was handed a second yellow synonymous with expulsion (55th). Even at ten, Bosnia was good and kept the hope for Spahic, who took up a fumbled ball in the surface (3-2, 65th). But the selection of Safet Susic finally bow to the provision of high-level Lusitano. Postiga, well served by Ruben Micael (4-2, 72nd), Miguel Veloso, a master free kick from 20 meters (5-2, 80th) and again Postiga, head (6-2, 81st) concluded Portuguese festival. The stage of Luz could then celebrate the 5th row of the Selecção qualification for Euro.
Player of the Game
Expected as the Messiah, not bad, Cristiano Ronaldo was at the height of 65,000 Portuguese fans. A constant threat, the player of Madrid started the country on track with a beautiful free kick. Author of a double end, he even made some lucky charm who had the gift to annoy his opponents.
The other games
In other matches of the dams back, he was no surprise either. All teams that had imposed on the way have indeed earned their ticket to the Ukraine and Poland after the second leg. Special mention to the Czech Republic who fought for the second time in four days Montenegro. Winner in Prague (2-0), the Czechs have emerged (1-0) in Podgorica with a goal late in the game of Petr Jiracek (81st). Also in the east, Croatia has provided the blow on his lawn against Turkey, settling for a goalless draw (0-0) after enough walk to go to Istanbul (0-3).
