Postiga out

 

Portugal striker Helder Postiga will miss the rest of Euro 2012 due to a thigh strain sustained in the quarter-final win over the Czech Republic. Postiga, Portugal’s first-choice centre-forward, was carried off after pulling up late in the first half against the Czechs in Warsaw. Portugal will face Spain in the first semi-final on Wednesday.

Former Portugal and Benfica great Eusebio is in a stable condition after having a coronarography to examine the condition of his heart after he was taken to hospital in the Polish city of Poznan on Saturday.

Eusebio, who turned 70 in January, travelled with the national team to Poland and was in the stands for the quarter-final win over the Czech Republic, alongside former Portugal captain Luis Figo.
