Portugal vs Uruguay, FIFA World Cup 2022 Highlights: Cristiano Ronaldo thought he scored but the goal was eventually credited to Bruno Fernandes in Portugal’s 2-0 win over Uruguay on Monday, a result that secured the team a place in the last 16 of the World Cup. Fernandes curled in a cross from the left that barely went over the head of Ronaldo and bounced into the far corner of the net in the 54th minute to give Portugal a 1-0 lead. Ronaldo wheeled away in celebration, believing he had scored his ninth World Cup goal and second of this year’s tournament. After repeated close-up replays, it was awarded to Fernandes, who added a second goal from the penalty spot in stoppage time after a handball by Jose Maria Gimenez.

In the last match, midfielder Casemiro showed his misfiring strikers how to finish on Monday when he lashed in an unstoppable late shot to give Brazil a 1-0 win over Switzerland that sent them into the World Cup knockout stage with a game to spare. In the earlier match, Ghana defeated South Korea in a thrilling contest which saw the African nation run away with a 3-2 victory. Before that, Cameroon and Serbia played out a 3-3 draw. Cameroon hit first with a Jean-Charles Castelletto goal in the first half that was nullified in added time by Pavlovic and Milinković-Savić. Mitrovic would add another early in the second half before Aboubakar and Choupu-Moting put Cameroon back.

Lineups: Portugal: Diogo Costa, Joao Cancelo, Pepe, Ruben Dias, Nuno Mendes, Ruben Neves, Bernardo Silva, Bruno Fernandes, William Carvalho, Joao Felix, Cristiano Ronaldo; Uruguay: Sergio Rochet, Sebastian Coates, Diego Godin, Jose Maria Gimenez, Guillermo Varela, Mathias Olivera, Rodrigo Bentancur, Matias Vecino, Federico Valverde, Edinson Cavani, Darwin Nunez.

90': Penalty to Portugal

Portugal stringing passes together in front of the Uruguay box. There was a shout for handball by Bruno and the referee is now checking it. And he has given a  penalty. No idea where else the defender was supposed to put his hand while tackling but the new rules are more often than not confusing. Portugal players are now protecting the penalty spot so that the Uruguay players don't damage it too much.


02:15 (IST)29 Nov 2022
85': Valverde shoots over

Uruguay try to keep mthe ball and build. Get a free kick for a foul on Pellistri. Short free kick. And Valverde gets the ball a few yards out of the penalty box. Shoots and that's gone well over the bar.

Triple Portugal changes as Matheus Nunes, Goncalo Ramos and Joao Palhinha replaces Joao Felix, Cristiano Ronaldo and Wiliam Carvalho.

78': Suarez close!!!

Again!!! How has that not gone in. The free kick was whipped in, falls kindly to Suarez. The gaol was gaping partially but he shoots in the side netting. Uruguay are threatening to break down the door. 

Another swift run from Uruguay as Costa has to come out and parry a cross which evades an onrushing URU attacker.


02:05 (IST)29 Nov 2022
75': Gomez hits the post!!!

What an effort from Gomez!!!! Pellistri with the lay off. He has been bright and positive. Gomez hits the ball first time. Beats the keeper but finds the psot. Portugal can breathe again.
