AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) _ Luis Figo set up two goals for striker Nuno Gomes, powering Portugal past Turkey 2-0 Saturday and into the semifinals of Euro 2000.

One minute before halftime, Portugal's creativity finally broke down Turkey's defensive wall when Figo, again the star of the match, sent a low bouncing cross into the area. Gomes dived low and deflected it past Rustu Recber.

In the 56th minute, Figo faked past Hakan Unsal, put a precision pass on the foot of the unmarked Gomes, who only had to tap the ball into the empty net.

Turkey had been down a man since the 29th minute when Alpay Ozalan was sent off for hitting Fernando Couto when both were down after a battle for the ball in the air.

Portugal will play the winner of Sunday's quarterfinal between Spain and world champion France at Brussels on Wednesday.

In addition to its spectacular offensive prowess, Portugal's defense has not surrendered a goal in its last three games.

In first-half stoppage time, Turkey was given a penalty shot after Couto brought down Arif Erdem. The midfielder took the penalty shot, but goalkeeper Vitor Baia made a fine low save. It deflated the Turkish players.

In a bad-tempered opening half, referee Dick Jol showed one red card and five yellows.

The second half turned into a show of Portugal's assets _ ball control and sturdy defense.
