[PORTUGAL-CZECH REP. REPORT CARD] Portugal broke open a tight game just after the hour mark with a superb Cristiano Ronaldo finish and added a clinching goal by Ricardo Quaresma in stoppage time to beat Czech Republic, 3-1, Wednesday and earn a spot in the Euro 2008 quarterfinals. A powerful Libor Sionko header tied the game nine minutes after Decoscored during a scramble in the eighth minute. Petr Cech punched away a Ronaldo drive and both Milan Baros and Sionko were a yard shy of turning a Tomas Ujfalusi flick into the net before Deco played a square ball that Ronaldo lashed into the net from just inside the box. Soccer America's Ridge Mahoney grades the players.
