Spain wasted a chance to tie up a place in the semi-finals after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Portugal in their second group fixture. Juan Santiesteban's side dominated the match, and took the lead early in the second half when Aarón converted a penalty after the Valencia striker had been brought down in the area. But Aarón and his colleagues missed a couple of opportunities to wrap things up, and their opponents saved a point when Carriço headed home a Santos corner with twenty minutes to go. Spain only need to draw their last game against Greece though to go through.
