Euro 2012: Spain Defeats Portugal
Spain v. Portugal on 6/27/2012 was a very slow game. The Euro 2012 Semifinal match was extremely well played. The first and second halfs showed very few opportunities and the game seemed destined for overtime and beyond. Beginning in the first extra time period, Spain really turned up the heat on the tired Portuguese side, who surrendered many shots to the attackers. They held on to the 0-0 draw which brought penalties. Excellent saves by each goalie on the first two shots, but a few Portuguese shooters ended up missing shots sending the Spaniards into the Finals on Sunday in Kiev, Ukraine.
