Key Moments

54 Minutes of 2nd Half – Bruno Fernandes scores for Portugal. Fernandes, who initially takes off to the left but then decides to cut back inside. The cross he spirals in the general direction of Ronaldo in the middle looks fantastic, but it’s too high for Ronaldo to reach it before it reaches Rochet.

90+ 3 Minutes of 2nd Half – Bruno Fernandes scores from a penalty this time. He takes a long time to get to the ball and stutters right in front of it, but then he does his signature hop and coolly slots the ball down the left side of the goal, fooling the keeper.
