Ronaldo on fire, Low warns of Greek threat and Liverpool chase Borini
After his side’s 1-0 defeat last night, Czech Republic centre-back Tomas Sivok admitted that Portugal were the better team and deserved to progress to the Euro 2012 semi-finals, according to the Telegraph.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored his third goal of the tournament with a diving header, putting him on 12 fantasy football points for the Euros so far.
The impressive Joao Moutinho, meanwhile, picked up his second assist of the competition in a dominant Portuguese display.
Turning to tonight’s match between Germany and Greece, German coach Joachim Low has warned that it may not be the one-sided affair that many are expecting, though he does not intend to make any changes to his starting XI.
UEFA’s news service has described how Löw told a press conference yesterday that Greece are "dynamic, good defensively and dangerous on the counter attack."
However, it’s German forward Mario Gomez who is currently favourite with the bookies to win the Euro 2012 Golden Boot.
He’s scored three goals and 11 fantasy football points so far, and stands at 13/8 with Bet365 and 7/4 with Ladbrokes to be the tournament’s top scorer.
Meanwhile, Liverpool have declared their interest in signing Italian striker Fabio Borini, the Daily Mail reports.
The 21-year-old Parma forward impressed last season, scoring 10 goals in 26 games while on loan at Roma and earning himself a place in Italy’s Euro 2012 squad.
New Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers knows Borini well, having coached him in Chelsea’s youth set up and managed him for a loan spell at Swansea.
Elsewhere, fresh from scoring two goals against England in the Euros, Olof Mellberg could be returning to these shores with a move to Everton.
The Guardian reports that the Swedish centre-back’s talks with current club Olympiacos have allegedly broken down.
Finally, the BBC reports that Queens Park Rangers have secured Robert Green on a free transfer from West Ham.
The 32-year-old England keeper will join Loftus Road on a two-year deal when his current contract expires at the end of this month.
