Poland, Jun 22:  Even the best scorers need someone to set them up.

Joao Moutinho did exactly that for Cristiano Ronaldo on Thursday, providing the precise cross for the only goal in Portugal's 1-0 victory over the Czech Republic.

The 25-year-old Moutinho showed he is a contender to become the top-class playmaker that Portugal is looking for.

And he'll get another chance to impress when the Portuguese face either Spain or France in the European Championship semifinals on Wednesday in Donestk, Ukraine.
