Team Eng-er-land and Deutscher Burds Through

Beating Portugal 1 - 2 leaves the ladies top of their group and now facing France in the quarters.

They'll need to up their game to win against the French, whom they have failed to beat since 1974, but on merit against Portugal (ranked 38th in the world and debuting the ladies' side in the Euros) it doesn't look likely.

Germany are also through having beaten Russia 0 - 2 while Sweden, the previous group leaders, lost 1 - 2 against Italy.  The Germans won their group and now play Denmark tomorrow (Saturday) for a place in the semis.

Fortunately with the draw being as it is, we will avoid the Brits and end up playing either Spain or Austria, while Eng-er-land Ladies will take on Holland or Sweden should they sweep past France.

Exciting games ahead and all to play for yet.
