Classic Euros - Czech Republic beat Portugal in Euro 1996 quarter-final at Villa Park

Barnaby Read     on 21 Jun 1:42 pm     Football     216   0  

When the Czech Republic meet Portugal in Warsaw tonight the Portuguese will be firm favourites but the Czechs will be able to draw inspiration from their Euro 1996 predecessors who overcame Portugal at the same stage en route to the final at Wembley where they lost 2-1 to Germany despite taking the lead.

Karel Poborsky's sublime chip was enough to secure a Czech win at Villa Park and this generation of players will be out to produce their own moment of magic if they are to pull off a major upset and reach the semi-finals of the tournament in Poland and Ukraine.
