Player to Watch for Czech Republic: Petr Cech
Czech Republic star goalkeeper Petr Cech will determine the outcome of this game with his performance because the Portugal attack is one of the strongest in the world.
If Cech struggles in this match and gives up an early goal, it will be hard for the Czechs to come back and win. Against players such as Ronaldo, Nani and Pepe (on set pieces), the Czechs will need remarkable saves from their goalkeeper for the entire match.
Player to Watch for Portugal: Fabio Coentrao
Real Madrid and Portugal left-back Fabio Coentrao will be able to use his pace and run down the left flank on the Czech Republic defense and send crosses into the penalty box where players with skills in the air such as Ronaldo will be waiting.
If he can push the tempo on the wings and add some energy to the attack, the Portuguese will have a strong chance of reaching the semifinal.
