After France, Brazil, Portugal also in the pre-quarterfinals

Portugal, led by star footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, has entered the pre-quarterfinals of the ongoing Football World Cup in Qatar. They have become the third team to make it to the knockout round. Before Portugal, France and Brazil made it to the top 16. Brazil qualified on Monday itself.
The first half of the match played at Lusail Stadium on Monday-Tuesday night remained goalless. Players from both teams made efforts to score the lead. But, no one got success. Cristiano Ronaldo, who recently left Manchester United, also failed to score. The Portuguese team did not have a single shot on target.
In the first half, Uruguay had good chances to take the lead, but Rodrigo Bentancur could not convert. Bentancur came very close to the goalpost, dodging three Portuguese defenders. But, could not cross the ball past goalkeeper Diogo Costa. Brilliant save by Costa here.
Shortly after halftime, Bruno Fernandes scored a brilliant goal from outside the penalty box in the 54th minute for Portugal. This was the score line for the stipulated 90 minutes. Then in extra time (93rd minute), Bruno Fernandes scored the second goal on the penalty.
This is Portugal's second win in 2 matches. Due to this, he is on top in Group H with 6 points. At the same time, Ghana's team is at number two with 3 points, while South Korea and Uruguay are at number three and fourth respectively with one point each. Uruguay now has to beat Ghana at any cost to advance to the next round.
