Ireland are one of the surprise teams to reach the last 16 but can they cause another upset.? It remains unlikely that the Irish can continue with their fairy tale at the Euro 2016 and this could just be the end of the road for them. But then again, a football match lasts 90 minutes and during that time anything can happen.

On Saturday, Portugal will be hoping that the Cristiano Ronaldo magic can lift them beyond Croatia.
