Final Tournament


Thanks for joining our commentary. Until next time, goodbye.
Both teams return to Euro 2024 qualifying action in June. Portugal host Bosnia-Herzeogovina, while Luxembourg are at home to Liechtenstein.
Portugal secure their second win on the bounce in their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign, hammering Luxembourg 6-0 at the Stade de Luxembourg. Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice in the first half, while there were also goals for Joao Felix and Bernardo Silva as Roberto Martinez's men put the game beyond doubt in the opening 45 minutes. Otavio came off the bench to add a fifth goal and there was also a late effort for Rafael Leao after he missed a penalty. Martinez makes it two wins out of two to start his reign.
90' + 2' WIDE! Danilo comes so close to adding a seventh for Portugal, but his effort travels just wide of the post as he connects with a header from Otavio's free-kick.

Luxembourg came into the game with a six-match unbeaten run in all competitions, but have been blown away by the visitors. The home side have been far too open at the back and have been duly punished. Luc Holtz now needs to ensure that his side can make the second half respectable at least to ensure their goal difference does not suffer.
Portugal have put forward a dominant first-half performance to lead Luxembourg 4-0 at the break in their Euro 2024 qualifying clash. The visitors took the lead through Cristiano Ronaldo from close range as he steered Nuno Mendes' header home from six yards. Joao Felix and Bernardo Silva then scored brilliant headers to extend the Selecao's advantage before Ronaldo notched his second with a clinical finish. Roberto Martinez's men are on their way to a second win in a row to start qualifying.
45' + 2' OVER! Joao Felix is inches away from adding a fifth goal before the break as he plays a one-two with Ronaldo on the edge of the box before lifting his right-footed effort just over the bar.
45' There will be three minutes of added time.
45' BLOCK! Fernandes works the ball into the box for Ronaldo to collect, only to his first-time drive deflected behind by Gerson.
42' Bernardo Silva angles a ball over the top for Mendes to chase in the inside-left channel. He collects the offload, but his touch is heavy and allows Moris to smother it.
40' Challenges are coming in thick and fast from the home side now. Chanot is the latest to give away a free-kick for a foul on Ronaldo.
38' Mendes feeds Dalot, who comes across from the right flank into the inside-left channel. He drills a low ball across the face of goal that just evades Ronaldo in the middle.
M. Martins
Yellow Card
37' Martins takes out Danilo on the charge and goes into the book. Luxembourg have to be careful not to lose their heads here.
34' Danilo bundles the ball home from six yards out after a scramble in the box from the resulting free-kick, but the defender is offside as Fernandes strikes the ball.
33' Jans brings down Mendes on the charge on the left flank right on the byline. The Luxembourg man is fortunate to escape a booking, while Portugal have a free-kick in a dangerous position.
V. Thill
Yellow Card
32' Thill catches Joao Palhinha with a late challenge on the boot and goes into the book. Thill may have been frustrated there are losing possession cheaply for Ronaldo's second.
Bruno Fernandes
31' Fernandes collects Joao Felix's pass before producing a sublime throughball for Ronaldo to collect and score.
Cristiano Ronaldo
31' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!! RONALDO BAGS HIS SECOND OF THE GAME!!!! 4-0 PORTUGAL!!!! Ronaldo notches his second of the game and fourth of the campaign with a simple finish inside the box. Thill loses possession in his own half to Joao Felix, who offloads to Fernandes . Fernandes threads the needle to release Ronaldo and he does not need a second invitation to slot his left-footed strike past Moris into the bottom-left corner. All too easy for Portugal.
29' Barreiro tries to win the ball from Palhinha deep in the Portugal half, but fouls the midfielder in the process.
27' Portugal look a threat every time they take possession in the Luxembourg half. It has been an electric start to the game for the visitors.
25' Joao Felix surges forward into the Luxembourg half and has men in support. He cut back from the left flank onto his right foot to tee up Fernandes, but his strike is charged down after he takes a poor first touch.
24' Luxembourg are trying to get the ball down to play progressive football, but it is leaving them exposed at the back. Holtz may need to alter his side's approach here otherwise Portugal could make this embarrassing for the hosts.
22' Joao Felix pursues a ball over the top from Joao Palhinha, but Chanot is alert and steers it back to Moris before the forward can pounce.
20' Luxembourg were unbeaten in six matches before the start of the game. Unless they can produce a remarkable comeback, their run is coming to an unceremonious end.
João Palhinha
18' Joao Palhinha has time and launches a cross-field ball into the inside-right channel for Silva to attack and head away from Moris into the net.
Bernardo Silva
18' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! BERNARDO SILVA MAKES IT THREE!!!!! 3-0!!!! What a start for Portugal! Bernardo Silva latches onto Joao Palhinha's cross and directs his header away from Moris into the far left corner giving the keeper no chance. Luxembourg are caught out by a cross into the middle and Bernardo Silva makes the hosts pay.
16' Rodrigues collects an offload from Martins Pereira and launches a strike at goal that sails well over the bar. However, the winger was offside anyway.
Bernardo Silva
15' Bernardo Silva angles a pinpoint cross into the box from the right flank and is rewarded with an assist as Joao Felix heads home.
João Félix
15' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! JOAO FELIX EXTENDS PORTUGAL'S LEAD!!!! 2-0!!!! The Selecao double their advantage as Joao Felix directs a close-range header past Moris. Bernardo Silva is afforded space and time on the right flank and he arcs a perfect cross into the box. Joao Felix has space and time to plant his effort into the top-right corner away from the Luxembourg keeper.
12' Luxembourg have endured an early setback and need to keep their composure to prevent Portugal taking control of the contest.
11' Ronaldo already has his third goal of the Euro 2024 qualifying campaign. The forward continues to find the back of the net at an incredible rate.
Nuno Mendes
9' Mendes makes a good run to the back post and nods the ball down to Ronaldo. He manages to react in time to guide the ball into the net.
Cristiano Ronaldo
9' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! RONALDO PUTS PORTUGAL AHEAD!!!!!! 1-0!!!!!! Ronaldo converts from close range from Mendes' header back into the middle. The visitors break the deadlock courtesy of Ronaldo as he stabs the ball home from six yards out after Mendes does well at the back post to steer Fernandes' cross into his path with a fine header.
7' Ronaldo probes on the counter and finds space in the Luxembourg box, only to lose out under pressure to Chanot.
6' BLOCK! Thill comes off his right wing and combines with Sinani before firing at goal on his left foot, but his effort is charged down. Rodrigues latches on to the rebound and fires wide of the target.
4' Bernardo Silva turns in the final third and looks for the offload to Fernandes that is intercepted by Martins Pereira.
2' Bernardo Silva tries to release Mendes down the left flank, but Chanot reads the danger and clears into touch with a sliding intervention.

Portugal brushed aside Liechtenstein in their first match of Group J qualifying and will be out to make it two wins out of two tonight under Roberto Martinez. The Selecao were clinical in front of goal in Martinez's first game, although they arguably missed out on the chance to put a more emphatic scoreline on the board in their 4-0 triumph. Portugal cannot take Luxembourg lightly, but Martinez's team have enough firepower to walk out with a comfortable victory.
Luxembourg began their qualifying campaign on the road with a solid goalless draw on the road against Slovakia. Luc Holtz's men will now look to build on their valuable point, although the standard of competition is raised with the visit of Portugal to the Stade de Luxembourg. They are unbeaten in their last six matches, but Holtz and his team will have to be flawless across the pitch to secure a positive result tonight.
