OPALENCIA : Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo assured that he is not being in under sort of pressure ahead of their semi-final cash against Spain on Thursday (.2.45am)
Ronaldo has been in excellent form in Poland and Ukraine in his side's last two matches, scoring three goals to send the Seleccao to the last-four stage.
He will face some of his Real Madrid teammates in this clash and also several familiar Primera Liga opponents, but Ronaldo insisted that it will not be different to any other high-profile encounter for club and country.
"There is not any special pressure just because I am facing Spain," he told Uefa's website. "I have been playing at the highest level for 10 years, both at club and international level.
"Yes, I feel responsibility, but not pressure. I am used to these matches."
Spain are favorites for the match, but Ronaldo thinks Portugal will be able to repeat their performance from Euro 2004 - when they reached the tournament final..
"It is nice to have the chance to be in the final eight years later. It will be very hard, but we are just one one step away from doing it," said the 27-year-old.
"Spain are a great side and it will be a very interesting Iberian contest, one which I hope we can win.
