Portuguese draw a blank

Have your say

Bosnia and Portugal left their two-legged Euro 2012 playoff finely balanced after a goalless stalemate last night on a barely playable pitch in the ramshackle Bilino Polje stadium.

The Portuguese dominated proceedings but were almost caught napping late in the game after a subdued home side finally came to life.

Portugal had the upper hand in the opening stages with Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani looking lively on either flank, but failed to create any clear-cut chances as their final pass kept going astray on a bumpy surface littered with holes.
