At the beginning of the match, the FIFA world leader Belgium controlled the game, but did not create dangerous moments at the Portuguese goal. The first serious moment of the game was the 25th minute, when Christian Ronaldu free kick – the ball flew into the wall created by the Belgian footballers, but the goalkeeper was the goalkeeper Tibo Kurtuā.

In the second half, the two teams exchanged for quick attacks, but they were more dangerous for Portugal. However, in the 42nd minute, Torgans Azārs sent the ball into the goal with a quick and accurate long shot, surpassing Ruī Patrisiu – 1: 0 in favor of the Belgian team.

At the beginning of the second half, Kevin de Brujne, the midfielder of the Belgian national team, left the field due to injury, and Dris Mertens took his place.

In the 58th minute of the match, after a great pass from Christian Ronald, Diego Jota hit the goal, but a little later, Joao Felix hit the head with the goal, the ball fell into Kurt’s hands. The Portuguese continued to attack, but faced the close defense of the opponents on the penalty area.

In one of the episodes, the two hottest football players in the ranks of both teams Romel Lukak and Pepe merged. In the penultimate minute of the match, after a whistle, Pepe deliberately and rudely played against Torgan Azar, who was warned with a yellow card.

Seven minutes before the end of the regular time, Rafael Gerreiru hit the post from an excellent position. In the last minutes of the regular time, both Andre Andre and Ronaldo threatened the goal guarded in Kurtu. Desperate efforts to reach a draw and an extra 30 minutes failed, forcing Portugal to relinquish his European championship.
