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.
