Portugal/Czech Republic - Portuguese media rave about Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo made the front pages of all the sporting and main newspapers in Portugal on Friday after his goal against the Czech Republic sealed a semi-final spot at Euro 2012.

"The best player in the world was once again the difference," said the sports daily A Bola.

"He (Ronaldo) is the best in the world," said Record on its front page, adding that "it was shaping up to be his Euro".

"Unstoppable... magic... ," A Bola ran out of adjectives to describe Ronaldo's performance, having already been in raptures over his match-winning brace against the Netherlands in the final group stage match.

"Golden CR7: a goal and classy performance opens the way to the semis," said Correio da Manha.
