The keeper made a great stop from Larsson during the first half but was not asked to do much else thereafter. He dealt with everything that was thrown at him for the rest of the game.
The experienced center back looked nervous in the opening stages but he soon collected himself and looked more assured. He kept a close watch on Ibrahimovic and refused to be bullied by the forward.
A solid performance at the heart of defense, showing good judgement and an ability to read the play before stepping out to challenge for the ball.
Continually found space on the right but did not pick out a teammate inside the box often enough. Defensively, he struggled to deal with the pace of Kacaniklic and committed too many fouls.
The left back defended with the utmost efficiency, refusing to allow Larsson time to supply the forwards. He also showing plenty of willingness to get down the other end to support Ronaldo, putting some good crosses into the area.
Created the first chance of the game with a great pass into Moutinho after five minutes and he continued in the same manner, regularly looking to pierce the Sweden defense with an incisive pass.
Had a brilliant chance to open the scoring after just five minutes but could only find the side netting after rounding Isaksson. He sprayed a number of high quality passes across the pitch throughout, but lacked a killer ball.
The winger failed to really get involved in the game. He drifted inside quite often but was unable to create anything and just added to the congestion in that area.
Linked defense to attack well, collecting the ball from the back and orchestrating the play by directing it from deep. He regularly made himself available as an outlet for his teammates and he assisted the decisive goal.
Struggled to find enough space to work in for much of the game but still proved to be the match winner. He showed great perseverance to eventually net the game's only goal with a diving header and was only denied a second by the woodwork.
The striker won a few flick-ons and got into some decent positions and showed a good touch, but he lacked the pace and power to really worry Sweden's center back duo.
The goalkeeper showed good judgement when vacating his line to come out and challenge for the ball. He supplied a sure set of hands between the posts and inspired confidence in his defense.
The left back got sucked inside far too often, leaving far too much space for Portugal to consistently fire crosses into the area. When the ball came in from the other flank, he failed to impose himself aerially.
Gave a decent account of himself for most of the game, but he was often coltish and slow to react. This was borne out as he allowed Ronaldo to get in front of him and head in the decisive goal.
Provided a very physical presence in the penalty area and showed astute positioning. He won a number of aerial battles and can be extremely pleased with his individual performance and the clean sheet.
Put in a great cross early on which Elmander came desperately close to converting. He made a good block on the line early in the second half but his lack of pace was often exposed when defending.
Curled a free kick narrowly wide of the post in the first half which almost caught Rui Patricio out. He played a number of good passes from the middle and helped protect his defense throughout the game.
The midfielder forced a strong save from Rui Patricio in the first half but did not supply enough ammunition for the Sweden strikers. He consistently tracked back though and had a good battle with Coentrao.
The midfielder did not track back often enough in the first half to help protect against the attacking forays of Pereira. He did so more after the break, but it meant he rarely used his pace to counter at the other end.
Dropped in alongside the defense consistently and he regularly moved out to the right to double up on Ronaldo and restrict his influence. It worked to good effect and but he offered minimal creativity.
Absolutely ran himself into the ground, working extremely hard for his side. He came agonizingly close to scoring in the sixth minute but never really tested the keeper again. However, his work-rate was commendable.
The towering striker was a peripheral figure for much of the game. He rarely linked up with his teammates and failed to truly test Rui Patricio throughout the entire match. He was well and truly outshone by Ronaldo.
