Portugal beats Vietnam 2-0 in historic World Cup win

Written By Lara Silva

Portugal has delivered a historic win in the FIFA Women’s World Cup, beating Vietnam 2-0. This is the first win for Portugal in a Women’s World Cup. The two goals were scored in the first half by Telma Encarnaçāo (7′) and Francisca Nazareth (21′). Telma has made history by scoring Portugal’s first Women’s World Cup goal.

With Vietnam out of the World Cup, Portugal is third in Group E with three points and will face the USA in their final group game in Auckland on Tuesday. 

The US and the Netherlands also had their game today, with the game leading to a draw of 1-1. Jill Roord scored for the Netherlands at 17′, while Lindsey Horan was able to score a goal in the second half at 62′. 

This will arguably be a harder job as Portugal will have to beat two-time world champions to continue on to the next phase.
