After a simple victory over the Czech Republic in the first match of the group, Portugal raised the tempo on Saturday against Turkey (3-0) and booked its ticket to the round of 16 of the European Championship 2024. Be careful, the Seleção is gaining strength…

Portugal and Turkey challenged each other with the aim of qualifying for the round of 16 of the UEFA Euro 2024. The two teams had won their first match against Georgia and the Czech Republic, respectively. The Portuguese confirmed his dominance in the match by opening the scoring through Bernardo Silva (0-1, minute 21) following a cross from Nuno Mendes inside the Turkish penalty area. Roberto Martinez's men doubled the lead just before the half-hour mark thanks to an own goal from centre-back Samet Akaydin. The latter directed a pass towards his team's goalkeeper without seeing his position. He was wrong (0-2, 28)

Portugal punishes Türkiye

A few minutes after this turnaround, the Turks were very close to reducing the score through individual work from Kerem, who faced Diogo Costa (31). After returning from the locker room, Ay-Yıldızlılar tried to score that famous third goal to get back into this match, but Lille striker Yusuf Yazigi's shot was blocked by the Portuguese goalkeeper (53rd). Before the hour had passed, the Portuguese was able to add the third goal through Bruno Fernandes (0-3, minute 56) after a serve from Cristiano Ronaldo. In the second half, the Turks tried, with the entry of their stars Arda Guler and Kenan Yildiz, to reduce the score, but to no avail. Portugal qualified for the round of 16, like Germany and Spain, after this remarkable success. Türkiye must not lose to the Czechs to reach the round of 16 against Portugal.
