Although Ronaldo continued playing for some time, he had to be replaced by Ricardo Quaresma in the 25th minute.
The injury cast a shadow over the match. France were back in possession. Midfielder Moussa Sissoko made several flash runs, as he injected a sudden burst of pace to send himself through.
Besides Sissoko, playmaker Antoine Griezmann who had scored six times to take the Golden Boot of the tournament, made huge threats to Portugal's defense. However, luck was not on his side.
