Tielemans battles to win the ball back from Cristiano Ronaldo during the round of 16 contest in Spain.

It remained that way for the 90 minutes as Tielemans played the full game to help his country secure a place in the semi-finals, winning his 42nd international cap in the process.

The Red Devils will now face Italy in the last eight at Allianz Arena in Munich on Friday 2 July (8pm kick-off).

Kasper Schmeichel is likely to be in action next Saturday, meanwhile, when Denmark take on Czech Republic in Baku for a place in the semi-finals (5pm kick-off).
