Czech Republic 1-3 Portugal
Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari is adamant his team will not change their tactics to counter the Czech Republic's expected physical approach in Wednesday's Group A clash in Geneva.
The winner of the match at the Stade de Geneve will secure their place in the quarter-finals of Euro 2008, with both teams having claimed three points from their opening games in the group.
It promises to be a contrast in styles, with the flair and brio of the Portuguese coming up against the aggressive and direct approach of the Czechs.
Scolari respects the ability of Karel Bruckner's side, but insists his team will play as they always do as they look to become the first country to qualify for the knockout stages.
"We have our own style, we won't change," he said. "We know they have specific strong points, but we have to have faith in our own technical qualities. And sometimes the best form of defence is attack.
"We are working on a few specific things. We have looked at a few videos, examined certain players for set-pieces.
"And we need to make sure we are closer to our opponents because of the long balls they send to their forwards.
"But my players are very motivated and focused for this match."
Scolari revealed his starting XI will be the same team that eased to a 2-0 win over Turkey in their opening pool match last Saturday.
Portugal were impressive winners that evening, Pepe and Raul Meireles scoring the goals in the second half, and Scolari has called on his players to maintain their focus.
"There is no use thinking about the first match - if we don't beat the Czech Republic, it will be all or nothing in our last match (against Switzerland)," said the former Brazil coach.
"What I fear about the Czech Republic is their history, their tradition, and I think it will be a very even match."
Captain Nuno Gomes admits his side's second outing will be step up from their opener against Turkey.
"We saw a little bit of their (1-0) win against Switzerland, and we know they have some very good and strong players," said the Benfica striker.
"All four of their defenders play in Italy and are experienced players, so overall I think they are stronger than Turkey.
"I think it's the most important match we will have in the group."
Giant striker Jan Koller should again be the Czech Republic's chief offensive weapon, but Portugal defender Ricardo Carvalho is confident he and centre-back partner Pepe can nullify the targetman's threat.
"It will be very difficult for both of us," the Chelsea player predicted.
"If he is very strong and tall, but we have other characteristics, like pace.
"We think we have the weapons to cope with Koller."
