Cristiano Ronaldo's selfless display helps Portugal advance at Euro 2016

The ESPN FC crew discuss Portugal's win over Croatia and why it seemed unwatchable at times.
ESPN FC's Michael Ballack and Roberto Martinez breakdown the round of 16 match between Portugal and Croatia.

Portugal maintained their record of making it to the quarterfinals or better of every European Championship they have competed in as a dramatic late winner by Ricardo Quaresma edged out Croatia in Lens.

Portugal coach Fernando Santos made some surprise changes to the team, with three of the back four changed in relation to the Hungary match, while Adrien Silva was given his first taste of tournament football, and in the starting XI no less.

An intense tactical battle with few chances ensued, and...

Ballon d'Or on the line for Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale?

The After Dark panel discuss Gareth Bale's influence for Wales and how Cristiano Ronaldo took on a different role against Croatia.

They were similar interventions, crucial contributions to rescue wretched games. They were separated by four hours and about 200 kilometres. They both featured men who are more accustomed to scoring goals than supplying them.

Gareth Bale's cross was turned into the Northern Ireland net by the unfortunate Gareth McAuley. Cristiano Ronaldo's shot gave Ricardo Quaresma an open goal. Wales and Portugal are Euro 2016 quarterfinalists, thanks to their Galacticos.

The Real Madrid colleagues may have been...

Euro 2016: Ricardo Quaresma (117') Croatia 0-1 Portugal

LENS, France -- There is no gentle way to put it, and we shouldn't be gentle about it anymore besides: Saturday was a wretched day of football, wounding for the sport we love. It was made worse by the fact that it was Euro's first day of elimination matches, when the drama allegedly begins to peak in one of the game's grand tournaments. If this was the best the continent has to offer, no wonder the United Kingdom's leaving.

It's almost too boring to bother reliving again here. Honestly, I already...

Euro 2016: Ricardo Quaresma (117') Croatia 0-1 Portugal

LENS, France -- Three thoughts on Portugal's 1-0 win against Croatia on the Euro 2016 round of 16.

1. Portugal win it late

After one of the worst games in modern tournament history, one of the hitherto best teams at Euro 2016 -- Croatia -- goes out and one of the best players -- Cristiano Ronaldo -- stays in.

After being so subdued for so much of the match, the Portuguese star was finally released on 117 minutes and it was his shot -- the first on target of the entire game by either side -- that...

Twitter, and a host of ESPN FC writers, were not impressed.

CROATIA 0-1 PORTUGAL

FULL-TIME: CROATIA 0-1 PORTUGAL

SUMMARY: A dramatic finish to what, on the whole, was a pretty awful game. Quaresma's header from almost on the line after Ronaldo's shot had been saved decided it -- and came seconds after Croatia had hit the post at the other end. It was a game short on chances and incident,...
