Portugal booked their place in the last eight of the World Cup and a meeting with England on Saturday after a beating Holland in a stormy encounter.
Both teams finished the game with nine men after a game which equalled the World Cup record for bookings – 16 – and broke the record for red cards.
Deco and Costinha were dismissed for Portugal, while Khalid Boulahrouz and Gio van Bronkhorst saw red for Holland. Maniche scored the only goal, firing into the top corner after 23 minutes.
