The 2012 European Championship is now in full swing and Arsenal.com will be keeping you regularly updated with the progress of the Gunners taking part in the tournament.
Czech Republic 0-1 Portugal
Thursday, June 21
Tomas Rosicky is heading home from Euro 2012 after watching his Czech Republic team-mates lose to Portugal in Warsaw.
The Arsenal midfielder did not feature in the tournament's first quarter-final - failing to sufficiently shake off an Achilles injury - and the Czechs struggled in his absence.
They started well with Vaclav Pilar to the fore, but Portugal gradually took a grip on the game thanks to their own creative force - Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Real Madrid star hit the woodwork twice in the first half but he eventually found a way past Petr Cech with 11 minutes left with a powerful downward header from Joao Moutinho's cross.
It was no more than Portugal deserved after dominating the second half and they advance to a semi-final against Spain or France.
Rosicky goes home, leaving five Arsenal players still in contention to lift the European Championship.21 Jun 2012
