Portugal to advance to round of 16 after beating Uruguay 2 – 0

Written By Lara Silva

Last night’s last game was an eventful one. Portugal will advance to the round of 16 after beating Uruguay 2 – 0, both goals scored by Bruno Fernandes.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo thought he touched the ball in the first goal with his head, although this wasn’t the case, and the goal was credited to the Manchester United midfielder.

Bruno Fernandes scored twice at 54′ and 90 + 3′, the last goal during a penalty. 

On top of that, a protester invaded the pitch wearing a “Save Ukraine” shirt and carrying an LGBTQ+ rainbow flag at 53 minutes.

This means that Portugal has become the third team to qualify for the last 16 of the FIFA World Cup, joining France and Brazil. 

Group H will come to an end on Friday after Portugal plays South Korea and Ghana face Uruguay.

Bruno Fernandes has been crowned man of the match after scoring two goals.
