Ronaldo eyes Euro glory

cristianoronaldo euro 2008

Cristiano Ronaldo inspired Portugal to victory over the Czech Republic and then claimed his country have a real shot at glory at the European Championships.

Success at Euro 2008 would cap off an incredible season for Ronaldo at club and national level, and Portugal along with Holland, Germany and Spain look to be the competition's strongest contenders.

After seeing off the Czechs 3-1 with goals from Deco, Ronaldo and Ricardo Quaresma, Portugal are now through to the quarter finals and a step closer to exorcising the demons of 2004, when they lost the final on home soil to unfancied Greece.

"Our main aim was to get to the next phase," said Ronaldo. "I'm very happy to have helped my team-mates to win.

"We played well in the first match and again in this match. If we carry on like this, we have a good chance."

Portugal showed resilience having taken an early lead only to be pegged back to 1-1 by the Czechs.

"We played very well, although Czech Republic played very well in the first half," he added. "It was very difficult to penetrate their defence."
