(CNN) — Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice as Portugal beat the Netherlands 2-1 to book their passage to the quarterfinals of Euro 2012 behind Group B winners Germany who saw off Denmark by the same score.

Ronaldo’s goals sunk the 2010 World Cup runners-up who exited the competition without gaining a single point.

Germany will play Greece in the quarterfinals with Portugal taking on Group A winners Czech Republic.

Group B was labeled the “Group of Death” when the draw was made and lived up to its billing as the four teams provided an enthralling finale.
