Portugal striker Helder Postiga
has been ruled out of their Euro 2012 semi-final against either
holders Spain or France with a thigh injury, the Portuguese
Football Federation said on Friday.
Postiga pulled up late in the first half of their 1-0
quarter-final win over the Czech Republic and was carried off
the pitch on a stretcher while clutching his right leg.
"Postiga is not fit to play," the Portuguese federation said
on their website.
Postiga was replaced by Hugo Almeida against the Czechs.
Portugal face either Spain or France on Wednesday for a
place in the July 1 final in Kiev.
