EURO 2004: Portugal, Netherlands, Czech Republic and Greece in final four

Euro 2004 moves into the semifinals Wednesday when host Portugal faces the Netherlands at the Jose Alvalade Stadium in Lisbon (kickoff: 2:45 p.m. ET).

Like the Portuguese, the Dutch moved into the semifinals thanks to a shootout. The Netherlands won its first penalty-kick tiebreaker in five tries at the World Cup and European Championship when it edged Sweden, 5-4, after their game ended 0-0 after 120 minutes.

In a battle of the tournament's hottest teams, the Czech Republic faces Greece at the Dragao Stadium in Porto.

The Czechs won their fourth straight game and upped their scoring total to 10 goals with a 3-0 victory over Denmark Sunday.

The Greeks upset defending champion France, 1-0, on Friday.
