Turkey 0 Portugal 3: Win secures top spot, Ronaldo’s mixed emotions and a calamitous own goal

Bernardo Silva in the recipient of UEFA's Player of the Match award, and there won't be too many arguments with that.

It could have been given to a number of Portugal players but the Manchester City man scored the opening goal, created four chances for his team-mates and completed 48 of his 52 attempted passes.

A worthy winner.


And that 3-0 victory confirms Portugal's position as Group F winners having accumulated six points from their two opening games. They will face one of the third-place finishers in the last 16.

Turkey, meanwhile, are still in a strong position to progress to the last 16 but will need a result against Czech Republic.

Cristiano Ronaldo has now played at the European Championship alongside someone born in 1969 and someone born in 2004:

There's the final whistle and a fifth pitch invader attempts to get to Ronaldo but stumbles en route and is apprehended. The level of security has been a joke today.

Job done by Portugal but Turkey know it's crunch time against the Czech Republic next.

90+4' Turkey 0-3 Portugal

This time a steward actually does something the intrusion and lands an uppercut on the culprit. Ouch.

90+3' Turkey 0-3 Portugal

Yet another pitch invader and Ronaldo is not happy. Understandably.

90' Turkey 0-3 Portugal

Ronaldo has been so unselfish today and has really helped his side enormously.

Five minutes more to play here.

88' Turkey 0-3 Portugal

Vitinha is replaced by the teenager Joao Neves.

85' Turkey 0-3 Portugal

Antonio Silva on for Pepe and the latter gets a standing ovation from both sets of supporters, what a magnificent footballer he is. He just reads the game with such ease.

Another pitch invader gets close to Ronaldo and neither he nor his manager seem as amused as they were when it was a child earlier in the half.

If only the security stopped anyone getting through as effectively as Pepe.

84' Turkey 0-3 Portugal

Another Ronaldo selfie-hunter runs onto the pitch, but this time it's a) while play was going on so the game has to stop and b) he's six feet tall, so doesn't quite have the same adorable child factor as the first.

Ronaldo pointedly doesn't pose for the selfie this time, and the pitch invader is led off. Someone throws a cup of liquid at him from the stands. Rough one.

80' Turkey 0-3 Portugal

The Portuguese players seem determined to keep a clean sheet and there's a professionalism their work this half that is to be applauded.

Pepe is there every single time Turkey get the ball into the box. It's hard to believe this man is in his 40s.

75' Turkey 0-3 Portugal

Akaydin completes his miserable afternoon by hobbling off with an injury and is replaced by Demiral.

He can't do any worse than the man he's coming on for.

70' Turkey 0-3 Portugal

A boy of six or seven manages to evade security and get a selfie with Ronaldo and receives a standing ovation for his troubles.

Semedo replaces Cancelo for Portugal while Real Madrid's Guler comes on for Akgun.

66' Turkey 0-3 Portugal

The Portuguese seem perfectly happy to let Turkey have the ball at the moment because the Turks don't look threatening in the slightest.

Portugal have bigger tests to come at this tournament and they look like they could go far.

63' Turkey 0-3 Portugal

Presuming Portugal see out this victory, they will have won more games in 90 minutes at Euro 2024 than they did during the entirety of their victorious Euro 2016 campaign.

60' Turkey 0-3 Portugal

The winner of this group could end up taking on France or the Netherlands next.

55' Turkey 0-3 Portugal

Neves with a lovely through ball that finds Ronaldo in acres of space. Astonishingly, an utterly selfless Ronaldo squares the ball to his former Manchester United teammate to tap the ball into an empty net.
