Watch the summary: Cristiano Ronaldo played a huge game, Portugal defeated Turkey 0:3

The Turkish team was very impressive in its first match in the group stage of Euro 2024 with a big 1:3 over Georgia. Tonight (Saturday), in the same “home” stadium in Dortmund with tens of thousands of Turks in the stands, Vincenzo Montella was punished for his changes in the lineup with the bench of Arda Güler and Kanan Yildiz, in a 3:0 loss to Portugal that ensured the top of the sixth group on the way to the round of 16.

The signal Iduna Park was noisy already from the first second, and in the second minute Cristiano Ronaldo got his first opportunity, which marked the beginning of the pressure of the Selção. In the 21st minute, Bernardo Silva scored the first goal after a nice preparatory action on the left side between Rafael Laao and Nuno Mendes, when the Turkish defense did not move well, and the Manchester City midfielder kicked a sharp ball into Altai Bindir’s net. The lead was doubled eight minutes later with an unfortunate own goal by Samet Ekadin who passed back to his goalkeeper, but it was out of place and the ball rolled into the net.

The second half continued the Portuguese dominance, and in the 56th minute Ronaldo became the king of the Euros of all time, in addition to the fact that he is the top scorer, when Pargan from close range Bruno Fernandez, and the Manchester United midfielder rolled the third into the open net. The rest of the game was sensitive to the protocol, with relaxed exchanges by the two teams and three fans breaking in to take pictures with Ronaldo. It didn’t bother the captain too much, but still without a goal in the Euros, he will try to do it in the final round, or in the round of 16, where Portugal will surely play as early as 1.7 in Frankfurt.
