Throughout the entirety of the match, Portugal held 60% of the game’s possessions, while Uruguay held 40% of the game’s possessions.

During the second half of the contest, Portugal’s attacking intensity level increased. They didn’t allow their adversaries any opportunities to succeed. The opening goal of the game was scored by Portugal after 54 minutes had passed since the game had begun. The ball was kicked by Bruno Fernandes from outside of the penalty box of Uruguay, and Cristiano Ronaldo headed it to send it back into the net. At first glance, it appeared as though Ronaldo had scored the goal, given the manner in which he celebrated it as if it was his own. However, following the goal with VAR check the referee confirmed that it was scored by Fernandes as Ronaldo missed to touch the ball with his head. In addition to the fact that it was an impressive goal scored by Fernandes, there was also some tension between the two teammates.

Unfortunately for Uruguay, their defender José Mara Giménez committed a handball inside their own penalty area just a few minutes before the end of the match’s 90-minute time limit. After consulting the video assistant referee, the on-field official determined that there had been a handball and gave Portugal the penalty they requested. Fernandes scored his second goal of the contest by converting the resulting penalty kick. Portugal was victorious from the contest with a score of 2-0 at the match’s conclusion.
