stewed & Keefed Holland end Swede dream

Sweden 0-0 Holland (AET)
(Holland go through 5-4 on penalties)
Holland reached the semi-finals with a 5-4 penalty shoot-out win over Sweden.

The inspirational Arjen Robben scored the winning penalty after Edwin van der Sar saved Olof Mellberg's spot-kick.

Swedish keeper Andreas Isaksson had kept his side in the game, though he enjoyed some luck as well, notably when a Robben shot hit the post.

Sweden also hit the woodwork first through a Henrik Larsson volley and then Fredrik Ljungberg's low shot, but Holland were worthy winners.

Initially Holland had concentrated their attacks down the Swedish left, with the Chelsea-bound Robben prominent in the best of those Dutch attacking movements.

As early as the fourth minute Isaksson had to punch clear a Robben cross and soon after the Swedish goalkeeper did well to tip over the bar a shot from the Dutch winger.

A long-throw from the Dutch right was then flicked on by Philip Cocu to Ruud van Nistelrooy but his shot was bravely blocked by Mellberg.

Another feature of Holland's attacking play was the way Robben and Holland's other winger Andy van der Meyde frequently swapped flanks.

It was from the left wing that Robben broke inside and linked well with Van Nistelrooy, to set up a shot for Michael Reiziger.

Deprived of possession Sweden were restricted to a couple of tame efforts from free-kicks though just before the interval Mattias Jonson crossed for Anders Svensson, whose goalbound shot was blocked by Wilfred Bouma.

Ten minutes after the interval a Jaap Stam mis-kick landed at the feet of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but the Swedish striker's shot was cleared by Cocu.

On 83 minutes Ibrahimovic set up substitute Kim Kallstrom, whose shot was superbly blocked by Johnny Heitinga.

As the game opened up Van Nistelrooy, who was isolated for long periods in the game, began to find more space.

Just past the hour Van Nistelrooy killed Clarence Seedorf's diagonal pass on his chest and the ball went just wide after the Dutch striker's shot rebounded off Isaksson.

In the closing stages of normal time Holland piled on the pressure and Van Nistelrooy and Roy Makaay went close.

Holland dominated the first period of extra-time, a Robben effort hitting the post after the swerve of the shot deceived Isaksson.

However the Swedish goalkeeper recovered himself as he dived low to fist away Seedorf's shot.

Isaksson made an even better save from a Seedorf free-kick when he flung himself to his right to get his hand to the ball.

But Sweden also went close, notably when Larsson swivelled and volleyed against the bar and then Ljungberg's low shot rebounded off the post.

Holland had lost penalty shoot-outs in 1992, 1996, 1998 and 2000, but after Van der Sar threw himself to save Mellberg's effort, Robben calmly slotted the ball into the corner.

stewed & Keefed Czech Republic v Denmark


Venue: Dragao, Porto
Date/time: Sun, 27 June, 1945 BST
Referee: Valentin Ivanov (Russia)

Czech Republic coach Karel Bruckner, who rested many first-choice players for the 2-1 win against Germany, will restore his stars against Denmark.

That means the likes of Pavel Nedved, Jan Koller and Tomas Rosicky will be back in action at the Dragao Stadium.

Danish striker Ebbe Sand (thigh injury) is a major doubt and is set to be replaced by Peter Madsen.

Niclas Jensen (leg injury) definitely misses the match, with Kasper Bogelund his likely replacement.

Czech Republic (probable): Cech, Grygera, Bolf, Ujfalusi, Jankulovski, Poborsky, Galasek, Rosicky, Nedved, Baros, Koller

Denmark (probable): Sorensen, Helveg, Henriksen, Laursen, Jorgensen, Bogelund, Gravesen, Poulsen, Rommedahl, Tomasson, Madsen.

stewed & Keefed Czech Rep v Denmark

Pre-match build up:
The atmosphere is building around Estadio do Dragao as kick-off approaches.

Both sets of supporters are desperate for their team to win - especially given that surprise-package Greece lie in wait.

But with the tournament now in the knock-out phase there seems to be a lot more neutral fans, who bought tickets long ago hoping their team would be playing in this fixture.

After a few cloudy days in Porto it is scorching hot once again, with only a gentle breeze to cool the players.

If the match goes to extra-time, as two of the quarter-finals already have, it will really test their stamina.

Team news:
Czech Republic make one change from the team that started their 3-2 group victory over Holland.

Defender Rene Bolf, who played in their final group match against Germany, keeps his place at the expense of Zdenek Grygera.

Denmark striker Ebbe Sand has failed a fitness test and is replaced by Jon Dahl Tomasson with Claus Jensen drafted into midfield.

Kasper Bogelund is in for Niclas Jensen at left back while Christian Poulsen replaces Daniel Jensen in central midfield.

Czech Republic: Cech, Jiranek, Ujfalusi, Bolf, Jankulovski, Galasek, Poborsky, Rosicky, Nedved, Koller, Baros.
Subs: Blazek, Kinsky, Grygera, Mares, Smicer, Lokvenc, Vachousek, Hubschman, Heinz, Tyce, Plasil, Rozehnal.

Denmark: Sorensen, Helveg, Laursen, Henriksen, Bogelund, Poulsen, Claus Jensen, Gravesen, Gronkjaer, Tomasson, Jorgensen.
Subs: Skov-Jensen, Andersen, Niclas Jensen, Sand, Kahlenberg, Kroldrup, Daniel Jensen, Priske, Rommedahl, Perez, Madsen, Lovenkrands.

Referee: V Ivanov (Russia).

stewed & Keefed Czech Republic 3-0 Denmark

Striker Milan Baros fired the Czech Republic into the semi-finals of Euro 2004 with two superb goals in the second half against Denmark.
Jan Koller had given the Czechs the lead after the break when he headed in Karel Poborsky's corner.

But it was Baros who stole the show, first lifting the ball over Denmark's Thomas Sorensen after latching on to Poborsky's clever through-ball.

Baros then met Pavel Nedved's pass to smash home his second inside the area.

The Czech Republic will face Euro 2004's surprise package Greece in Thursday's semi-final, with Baros now the competition's leading scorer on five goals.

The Czech Republic, who went into the quarter-final as the tournament's standout team to date, started brightly.

Target man Koller and his accomplice Baros kept the Denmark defence busy early on, while captain Nedved pulled the strings in midfield.

All three tested Denmark keeper Sorensen and Thomas Galasek tried his luck from range for the Czechs.

Denmark gradually imposed themselves on the game, their passing and movement accurate but without really posing much of a threat.

Given the importance of the encounter, caution was the dominant theme of a sterile first half.

But all that changed after the interval.

The game desperately needed a goal and it came four minutes into the second half when Koller rose unmarked in the Denmark area to head in Poborsky's corner.

Nedved burst forward to win the corner, but questions will be asked of Denmark defender Martin Laursen, who inexplicably failed to pick up the giant striker.

Denmark came back at the Czechs immediately, and Marek Jankulovski did well to keep Jon Dahl Tomasson at bay with a timely challenge.

The Czech Republic then stepped up a gear of their own and the game was effectively over as contest after two excellent goals in two minutes by Baros.

Sensing that the game had swung in their favour, Poborsky stormed down the right and picked out Baros with an exquisite through-ball.

The Czech forward kept his cool when going in on goal and finished with a deft chip over Sorensen.

If his first goal was all about finesse, Baros' second was a product of his powerful left foot as he smashed Nedved's defence-splitting pass past a shellshocked Sorensen.

The Czechs deserve to win the tournament - they have played the most attacking football throughout

That was Baros' fifth goal of the tournament, making him Euro 2004's leading scorer.

Czech Republic coach Karel Bruckner opted to save his star striker for the semi-final and replaced him with the exciting Marek Heinz.

Denmark offered little in response after seeing their hopes of a meeting with Greece dashed within the space of minutes.

The Czechs finished strongly and will go into Thursday's game brimming with confidence after another accomplished performance.
