France vs Portugal Score, Euro 2024 Live Updates: Winner between Kylian Mbappe, Cristiano Ronaldo to play Spain

It’s a repeat of the 2016 European Championship final, but can Cristiano Ronaldo once again crush France’s dreams on the stage of a major tournament? Eight years ago, his Portuguese side stunned the hosts in Paris to lift their first major trophy. There is perhaps no more star-studded clash at Euro 2024 than this one, with Ronaldo leading one attack and Kylian Mbappe the other, the dynamic strikers supported by a host of supporting names including Bruno Fernandes, Antoine Griezmann and William Saliba.

This afternoon’s winners will face Spain, who sent hosts Germany out of Euro 2024 thanks to a Mikel Merino header in the 119th minute. Julian Nagelsmann’s side were already suffering a disappointing exit and trailed to a Dani Olmo goal until the 89th minute of normal time, when Florian Wirtz converted a classy volley.

After Germany were awarded a penalty in extra time for a suspected handball, the Germans’ hearts were broken when Real Sociedad midfielder Merino crept into the penalty area to parry a cross from the excellent Olmo.

Stay up to date with all the action, analysis and highlights from today’s second quarter-final. Can France and Portugal deliver as much drama?
