Portugal dismissed the feeble challenge posed by ultra-defensive Czech Republic and then coach Paulo Bento insisted he doesn't mind who they face next.
Next up they will face either neighbours Spain or France, who meet in Saturday's quarter-final in Donetsk.
"In the semi-finals of a great tournament like this there are always great teams with different characteristics and players of great quality," said the 43-year-old.
"The teams are very organised and that's why I don't have any preference as to who we meet.
"We're through, we worked really hard to get here and now we must try to recover (physically) as much as possible and then we'll try to take to the field in the best conditions."
