Türkiye – Portugal (0-3): In the demo, Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo qualified for the round of 16

As in an armchair. In just half an hour, the Portuguese confirmed their qualification to the round of 16 of the Euro Championship after they easily dominated Turkey (0-3) in Dortmund on Saturday. Roberto Martinez's team no longer has much in common with the sterile team that suffered for 70 minutes in front of the Czech defense before winning (2-1) last Tuesday. More mobile and more inspired, the 2016 European champions were quick to blow away the Turkish backline.

A textbook move on the left between Leao and Nuno Mendes led to a cross from the Parisian, which struck an opposition foot in the Turkish area. Cristiano Ronaldo was unable to restart the match, but Bernardo Silva, alone, calmly opened the scoring with his left foot (0-1, min. 22).

Shortly afterwards, Portugal took the lead despite themselves thanks to a Turkish goal. Indeed, centre-back Akidin, who was focused on the dispute that had just occurred between Ronaldo and Cancelo, sent a back pass towards his own goal when his goalkeeper made a mistake (0-2, minute 28). This is the second goal that the Seleção benefited from, after Hranac's goal, which scored the equalizer for Portugal (1-1, 69th minute) against the Czechs last Tuesday.

After the break, while the Turks tried to open the scoring, Portugal made the score worse. The opponent's defense was unable to intercept Ronaldo's deep pass on the right side inside the area. The 39-year-old five-time Ballon d'Or winner, the European Championship record holder (14), who has yet to score in this edition, did not take advantage of the opportunity, but cleverly set up Binder, the Turkish goalkeeper, and made an offer. An assist to Bruno Fernandes on his left (0-3, min. 56).
