Denmark v Portugal player ratings

Man-for-man marking from the Euro 2012 match at the Arena Lviv

<b>Nani:</b> Had an excellent game, attacking dangerously down the right and providing killer balls into the box including setting up Helder Postiga’s goal. 8<br/>
<b> Hélder Postiga:</b> Justified his selection with a much improved performance. Made clever runs in and around the box in particular to score his side’s second goal, neatly tucking in Nani’s driven cross. 7<br/>
<b>Cristiano Ronaldo:</b> Had a mixed game, giving a largely impressive and much improved performance. He looked extremely dangerous running from deep but was wasteful in front of goal, spurning several excellent chances to score. 7<br/>
<b>Best off the bench – Silvestre Varela (pictured): </b> Had an immediate impact, scoring the winning goal two minutes after coming on with great strike from inside the area. 7<br/>
