Portugal vs Uruguay LIVE: World Cup 2022 latest updates

What is the World Cup? | Decomplicated

Portugal beat Uruguay 2-0 on Monday with two goals from midfielder Bruno Fernandes to become the third team after France and Brazil to qualify for the World Cup knockout stage.

The Europeans had dominated possession before Fernandes’ 54th minute cross floated past Uruguayan goalkeeper Sergio Rochet, who was rooted to the spot as Cristiano Ronaldo rose to head the ball and initially celebrated the goal as his.

Fernandes scored the second in injury time after a penalty was awarded for handball following a video review.

Uruguay, who had knocked Portugal out of the 2018 World Cup, will rue a string of chances on the break: midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur skipped past three players only to see his shot brilliantly saved, Maxi Gomez hit the post and Luis Suarez shot into the side netting.

Portugal’s second win in two games put them top of Group H on six points and heading into the last 16. Uruguay, third on one point, must beat Ghana in their final group game to have a chance of progressing. Follow all the reaction with our live blog below


FULL TIME: Portugal 2-0 Uruguay

Player ratings, by Alex Pattle

Final product was largely disappointing, until he whipped a short cross all the way into the back of the net – just past Ronaldo’s head, though the captain insisted otherwise.

As motivated as he always is in this shirt, but had mixed results. Displayed some terrific control with his chest in a couple of moments, creating half-chances both times. Swerved a free kick into the wall after much anticipation, and struggled to get on the end of crosses – including when he claimed Fernandes’ goal as his own header. Might like to claim Fernandes’ rating, too. Taken off just after the 80-minute mark.

FULL TIME: Portugal 2-0 Uruguay

A deserved win in the end for Portugal, who rode out second-half pressure from Uruguay to claim their second win of the group stages and book their place in the last 16.

Fernandes is the hero, despite Ronaldo’s claims that the first goal was his.

90+6 mins: We are into nine minutes of added time, but that may become more because of that VAR check. The win is Portugal’s though, and it makes life difficult for Uruguay heading into their final match against Ghana.

GOAL! Portugal 2-0 Uruguay (FERNANDES 90+3’)

Now this one certainly does belong to Fernandes! He takes a hop, skip, and then places the ball to the side of Rochet. Brilliant penalty and Portugal are heading through to the knockout stages.

PENALTY! Portugal 1-0 Uruguay

89 mins: Ooooh, there is now a VAR check on that Gimenez handball!

It was lovely play from Fernandes. He nutmegged Gimenez, who then touched the ball with his hand after falling to ground.

Portugal 1-0 Uruguay

88 mins: And those changes have worked for Portugal, as they take control again through Bernardo and Fernandes, who appeals for a penalty after squeezing the ball under Gimenez and appears to strike his hand. Bernardo then has a gap to curl for the far post, but sees his shot blocked.

Portugal 1-0 Uruguay

84 mins: Ronaldo doesn’t seem to be too happy but Santos needed to make some changes. Can Uruguay go again? Not like that, though, as Valverde shoots over from distance.
