Four matches, 15 goals, two penalty shootouts and one huge upset have set up two intriguing semi finals as Euro 2016 reaches it’s climax. With just 48 hours to prepare, Telegraph Fantasy Football managers will be desperate to get the most out of any of their remaining transfers. Here's your quarter finals round-up:
Portugal 1-1 Poland
Portugal win 5-3 on penalties
Portugal have reached the semi finals of Euro 2016 despite not winning a single match in 90 minutes. Ricardo Quaresma (£3.8m) scored a 117th minute winner to book their place in the quarters and it was his winning penalty that sent Portugal through once again after Rui Patricio (£3.4m) superbly saved Jakub Blaszczykowski’s spot-kick.
That penalty has taken Quaresma onto 18 TFF points for the tournament, despite only making the starting XI once against Austria in Group F. He’s turning out to be the competition’s ultimate super sub but it’s former Manchester United winger Nani (£4.2m) that has hit the richest vein of form in Fernando Santos’ side, chipping in with a penalty, two goals and three contributions to put him 5th in the overall leaderboard.
Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t far behind on 29 TFF points and the game’s most expensive player (at £7.0m) is still in the running to win the Golden Boot. With the prospect of a semi final date with Wales on Wednesday evening, the Portuguese captain will be desperate to get one over his Real Madrid team mate Gareth Bale - the player who leapfrogged Ronaldo to become the most expensive football transfer of all time.

Wales 3-1 Belgium
It was the greatest night in Welsh football history as Chris Coleman’s side battled their way back from a goal down to record an astonishing 3-1 win over one of the pre-tournament favourites, Belgium.
Radja Nainggolan had put the Belgian’s ahead with a ferocious 25-yard strike, but Wales captain Ashley Williams (£3.4m) equalised on the half hour mark to prove his side weren’t just there to make up the numbers.
The unthinkable happened when free agent Hal Robson-Kanu (£3.7m), who was deemed surplus to requirements by Championship side Reading, turned three defenders inside out before coolly slotting a neat finish past Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois in the second half.
Aaron Ramsey (£4.2m) was awarded a key contribution for both of those goals and was Wales’ standout player. The Arsenal midfielder will be a huge miss against Portugal in the semi finals after picking up a second tournament booking, as will Tottenham defender, Ben Davies (£2.5m).
After withstanding an onslaught of late pressure, substitute Sam Vokes (£3.0m) sealed an emphatic victory to set up that mouth-watering clash between Gareth Bale (£5.0m) and Cristiano Ronaldo on Wednesday night. Can Wales defy the odds once again and reach the Euro 2016 final?

Germany 1-1 Italy
Germany win 6-5 on penalties
The current world champions won yet another penalty shootout to book their place in the Euro 2016 semi finals against France.
Mesut Ozil (£4.8m) looked to have sealed Joachim Low’s side victory in normal time after finishing off a lovely move from Mario Gomez (£4.8m) and the ever-impressive left-back Jonas Hector (£3.4m). The latter has now moved onto 35 TFF points for the tournament, making him the second highest scoring defender behind his teammate Jerome Boateng (£4.5m).
But it was Boateng who gifted the Italians a route back into the game after handling in the box, allowing Juventus central defender Leonardo Bonucci to step up and send the game into extra time before the lottery of penalties.
Manuel Neuer (£4.0m) saved Matteo Darmian’s ninth spot-kick, moving him top of the overall leaderboard on 40 TFF points, which allowed Hector to step up and fire under Buffon to maintain the German’s record of winning every penalty shootout they’ve been in in the last 40 years.
They’re now the outright favourites for the tournament, but Thursday night’s intriguing semi final against the hosts could yet prove to be the game of the tournament so far.

France 5-2 Iceland
The hosts demolished Iceland 5-2 to set up their semi final clash against the current world champions Germany in Marseille on Thursday night.
There was almost a stunned atmosphere around the Stade de France at half-time as Didier Deschamps’ side walked off four goals to the good, two of which came just moments before the half-time whistle.
Antoine Griezmann (£5.7m), Olivier Giroud (£4.5m) and Dimitri Payet (£4.6m) were all on the scoresheet once again and the French trio now make up a 1-2-3 in the race for the Golden Boot. Griezmann leads the way on four and he’s also France’s highest TFF points-scorer so far, racking up 35 via his haul of goals and two further key contributions for his team mates.
Latest odds: Griezmann to win the Golden Boot - 8/11
Payet is on three goals and has made his way into a staggering 66% of TFF managers’ teams, making him the most selected player ahead of Gareth Bale (on 57%) and his international teammate Antoine Griezmann (on 53%). Can the West Ham playmaker inspire the French to a monumental semi final victory against the Germans on Thursday night?
