BEST GAME ROUSDI BC Vs 1889 Denmark 2 - 3 Portugal Although this one is down entirely to personal preference, few games were quite as exciting as Portugal's incredibly tight victory over a resurgent Danish team who narrowly missed qualification from the tournament's toughest group. Five goals, a hatful of missed chances and a last gasp winner combined with some brilliant football made this group game our choice for best game of Euro 2012.
