Chelsea's Cech: Czech can beat Portugal in quarters

Petr Cech believes the Czech Republic team can cause an upset by beating Portugal in the Euro2012 quarter-finals.

The Czechs managed to get through to the final eight by finishing top of the weaker Group A and next take on Group B runners-up Portugal in Warsaw on Thursday which is a fixture holding no fears for the Chelsea goalkeeper.

"We haven't lost yet, of course you can beat anyone on a good day," he said.

"We definitely have a chance to advance. Its sport and anything can happen.

"They are among the world's top ten teams," he added, acknowledging the threat of the Portuguese. "It's a team full of personalities and outstanding players, and they play very well.

"Against the Netherlands on Sunday, they were excellent up front. They also have enough experienced players. The team has matured and it's really strong."
