I thought Willems did OK at LB for you but I'd give it to Coentrao who was probably Portugal's best player I thought, Lescott at CB, not just for his goal but I thought he made some good tackles and blocks too. Or if not Lescott then certainly De Rossi, he was a total beast against Spain, probably him ahead of Lescott actually. As for CM I'd go for 1 of the Danish 2, Zimling or Kvist.

LB: Coentrao, Willems
CB: De Rossi, Lescott, Agger, Kjaer
CM: Zimling, Kvist, Shirokov

Any of them would be worthy of a spot in my opinion.

Haven't seen any Italy games for a while... what the hell is De Rossi doing at CB? Do they have an injury crisis or something? They're Italy, surely they've got at least 2 quality CBs in the country?

Did you not see the game?

If you didn't they used 3 at the back and De Rossi played as a sweeper, he was probably the best player on the pitch too. Did great and the system seemed to suit them well.

I thought he looked brilliant when facing six midfielders, then looked all at sea when Spain brought on a striker. Seemed to lose track of Torres a few times.

They did indeed. Haven't seen teams use wingbacks like that in a long time and it seemed to confuse Spain at first.
