Barcelona midfielder Cesc: Portugal will be tough

Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas says Portugal will be tough semifinal opponents for Spain.

Cesc was delighted to help Spain beat France in the Euro2012 quarterfinals.

"I played a bit better, but we were playing against France, who played very well. I tried hard, and I ran a lot. No matter what happens, the most important thing is that Spain won," said Cesc.

"Portugal will be very difficult. They have strong individuals, strong players. Apart from their good open play, they are very good on the counterattack, and we will have to work hard in that game.

"They have Ronaldo, Nani, Raul Meireles, Joao Moutinho. They have very good players."
