Portugal's hero of the hour Cristiano Ronaldo says belief in their own quality has brought them to the semi-finals and hopes their maturity can now take them a step further.

"Our great aim is to get to the final. We have a great squad and now I'd say the chances are 50-50 and we just have to believe in it," Ronaldo said after the 1-0 win over the Czechs.

Portugal will play the winner of Spain v France.

"I think it was a fantastic game for Portugal. In the first 20 minutes we weren't that good but we improved a lot. It was a perfect game for us, with a lot of opportunities. The Czechs didn't have one opportunity.

"We had the quality to reach the semi-finals. We are happy but know the next match will be difficult but the team is very mature and we are ready," Ronaldo added.
